Description

May 26 is Memorial Day. America owes a debt of gratitude to all her sons and daughters who have served in the armed forces. Let us never forget their sacrifices.

There are a lot of businesses who would be glad to team up with you to honor America's servicemen and women. Offer ad packages to:

  • banks, S&L's, and credit unions
  • NTR prospects/professional offices doctors, dentists, attorneys, CPA's, etc.
  • insurance agencies
  • military recruiting stations
  • VFW posts
  • funeral homes/monument companies
  • crafts/fabric shops and other stores selling wreaths and artificial flowers to place on graves
  • outdoor/camping/fishing/hunting supply stores
  • bike/sporting goods stores
  • any business that sells food and supplies for Memorial Day picnics, camping trips, etc. (including businesses that offer boat, bike, and other rentals)
  • home/garden equipment rental or storage rental businesses
  • hardware/building supply stores
  • plumbing/heating/electrical/landscaping contractors
  • motorcycle/car/truck dealerships
  • any business having a Memorial Day sale (e.g., furniture & bedding stores, carpets & flooring stores, etc.)
  • restaurants and coffee shops

If you know local business owners that are former or current military members, they may very well be interested in a Memorial Day ad schedule, too.

Just heard from one of our customers in New Mexico.  If you're looking for a last-minute cash infusion for May, the Above & Beyond Memorial Day campaign could be the ticket!:

“Who did I sell the Memorial Day campaign to?  Everyone I played a demo for!  Here’s the backstory:  I wanted to run with the campaign, but my sales team was balking; they didn’t think they could sell it.  So even though I’m the owner and don’t typically make sales calls, I took the demo out and presented it to some prospects.  In one day, I had five sponsorships lined up: an insurance agency, a furniture store, a carpet store, a car dealership, and a custom embroidery business.  I went back to my sales team and said, ‘Shut it.’  These campaigns are easy to sell – how can anyone not do well with them?” – Steve Rooney, owner of Rooney Moon Broadcasting
