Using Lanyards to Get a Powerful Message Across

There are many uses for lanyards in business. However, there are also many schools around the world using them for a variety of applications as well. Take a group of students at a senior high school in Waupun, USA as an example of this. At a senior democratic seminar class, a group of students handed out lanyards attached to small cards to other students throughout the day.

The cards were designed to highlight the issue of distracted driving and the harm it can cause. The endeavour was part of a community service project that the students chose to become involved with.

Important Message

Students from the school were asked to go to the gym and sit with their classmates. As they entered the gym, they were listening to pop music and told that they were getting out of class early. Being as this was a Friday, the announcement was met with a loud cheer.

Students were then asked to put their hands up if they owned a phone. Every student raised their hands and laughed at such a silly question.

The next question concerned whether they could drive, followed by a question about if they ever text and drive. With the American Automobile Association reporting that almost half of all American teens text while driving, it was a very important issue.

Use of Lanyards

The next part of the process required those students who had been handed a lanyard during the day to stand up; they represented a quarter of the population of the school. This same number of people would be involved in a car collision during the year with the cause attributed to distracted driving.

At this point, those who were standing were told to have a look at the message on the card attached to the lanyard. If the message read 'You were killed', they were to remain on their feet.

They were then visibly shocked on hearing that eleven teenagers in the States are killed every single day because of distracted driving. Jordyn Haddy, who was involved with the project remarked, "I see some people in the crowd I would not want to lose."

How to Successfully Advertise Your Business on a Budget

The Challenges of Marketing

Many business owners find it challenging to find an effective way to advertise their product or brand as they may not always have a lot of funds readily available to splurge on expensive marketing materials.

Some may choose to give up at this point, believing that there is no way to successfully promote their business for a fraction of the cost. However, here at, we are pleased to let you know that we offer a fantastic range of promotional products at extremely affordable prices.

In this post, describe four methods you can advertise your business on a budget.

Sponsor a Local Team
One way to successfully promote a business locally is to sponsor a local sports team. For a small fee, you could buy fourteen shirts that would be worn in local matches so that people from the area can see your brand logo while watching a game.

Being a supporter of your local side is an excellent way to enforce the idea that your business is there and supports local investment and growth.

Free Notice Boards

Make use of free notice boards by putting some printed advertisements of your business in supermarkets or a community centre notice board.

Make sure that you use bright colours and have your brand logo on show to attract the eye of potential target customers and draw them in to read your advertisement.

Make Use of Public Transport
You could also make use of public transport by enquiring about advertising your business through a poster on the inside of a bus, taxi or train, as there are usually advertisement spaces available to do so.

You could have hundreds of people looking at your advertisement.

Branded Merchandise

One of the most effective ways to advertise a business on a budget is to give away branded merchandise such as lanyards, silicone wristbands, card holders, and much more. Everyone loves a freebie, and if it has your brand logo emblazoned on it, even better!
