Give Your Blog a Treat with These 5 Merchandising Ideas

There are many ways to spread the word about your much-loved and carefully-crafted blog, and that can include having some personalised merchandise made to get your message across.

Every blog is different and it's fun to play around with a variety of ways of letting the world know about it.

Here are my top tips for some inexpensive ways to get your blog name on everyone's lips.

1 Create a Personalised Mobile phone or iPad Skin

The wonderful people at Case App UK let me have a sample phone case for free. It was so quick and easy to creat online using an existing photo. I could add text and clipart and choose from a variety of backgrounds. The case arrived swiftly and we all love it! 

Case App skins usually retail at £19 but Downs Side Up readers can get a 20% discount by using the following code: DSUCASE20

2 Design a Logo

If you are arty, have a go at creating your own logo or blog header or ask a friend to help. You can then use this as your standard avatar and people will quickly grow to recognise it.

3 Get Some Business Cards

There are many companies offering a range of quality and price ranges. You can even get free cards made if you shop around. Try not to make the same mistakes I do and leave the whole box at a conference or forget to get them out when you meet people for the first time because you are too busy talking...

4 Pin a Badge

You can have a couple of badges made with your logo, photos or products on them to wear to events or invest in a bulk purchase and hand them out to your readers.

5 Get T-shirty

This is something on my to-do list. I have a shocking memory for names and when I have to remember the blog name and avatar as well as the face I am really struggling. A blogger in a T-shirt really helps their blog stick in my mind.
