Not sure where to start with your adverts? Not to worry we have compiled a guide below to ensure that you can use them for your school calendar if required.
Selling School Calendar Adverts
How you go about selling your adverts is entirely up to you, we would suggest that you start by looking at your school parents of pupils who attend your school. Maybe on your school PTA or school PTFA there are members who run businesses and would be willing to pay to advertise their business on your school calendar. If you find you don’t have enough calendar advertisers within your school community, you can then look further afield. Look around your local community, is there a local shop that is close to your school that receives trade from school members, maybe a local bed and breakfast business.
School Calendar Advert Ideas
Another great idea for advertising on your calendar is to look at asking a photographer to come to your school to take some great looking professional photographs. You could say to the photographer that in exchange for photographs you would include an advert in your school calendar. Calendars are a remarkable marketing tool that is used on a daily basis and for the entire year. There is no other marketing medium that offers that sort of potential. The photographer would get a full twelve months marketing to your school members and if they are a local photographer they will pick up work like weddings and family portraits.
Benefits Calendar Adverts
School calendar adverts help to promote your local businesses and make bigger calendar profits for your school. What you charge businesses to advertise is up to you, it will depend on your location in the country and what you think is a suitable charge. You can charge £25.00 per advert, sell twelve adverts one for each month and you can see how the profit starts to grow. On our A4 portrait school calendars, the space for an advert is approximately 20mm x 190mm. However the size might vary slightly on some designs. Schools have split this space into two, creating space for twenty four adverts per calendar.
Don’t worry if you can’t sell twelve adverts to fill your calendar you can repeat adverts so for example you sell six adverts, you can display each advert twice in your calendar. Or you can alternate the months for example; January you have advert, February no Advert, March has an advert and so on.
Big Calendar Adverts
To make a really BIG impact on your calendars you can use one of our A4 landscape calendars and you can give businesses maximum exposure with a large advert. Our A4 landscape calendar design LB is an extremely versatile calendar design. It allows for a whopper of an advert underneath the image area, or you can split area into creating two large adverts. The space can also be split for one large advert and an area for notes.
