SAILBOAT SWEEPSTAKES

Written by Saturday, 05 October 2013 14:14

 

Sweepstakes, raffles and drawings are wonderful ways to gauge return on investment or ROI by stimulating consumers to provide their personal information, which can be used for additional marketing initiatives and building of a comprehensive demographic database. Creating a need for individuals to purchase sponsors products for a chance to win a small sailing vessel can help increase sales over those of traditional giveaway promotions. These vessels are inexpensive and can be set up and viewed at retail stores, nightclubs, events, bars with the option of creating on-premise promotions. Off-premise promotions provide small sailing crafts which can easily assist in guerrilla advertising campaigns and create radio trade for the Number 10 Caller of any chosen radio station. Listeners can call in to enter the raffle drawing for a chance to win the actual vessel. This successful formula can be repeated at boat shows, art fairs, concerts, sporting events, and more. The promotional opportunities are endless.

Hunter Marine Corp. Enters Cooperation With Photo Sails

 

 Hunter Marine Corporation has entered into a cooperation with Photo Sails to offer unique quality corporate branding vessels in over 30 U.S. and international locations. Photo Sails offers branding vehicles via sailing billboards in all major waterside markets with navigable waterways. New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Houston, Cleveland, Daytona and even Pittsburgh were all originally established as "Port Towns" with coveted natural bodies of water bordering, surrounding or flowing directly through their cores. A Photo Sail is worth a thousand billboards.

Each branding vessel commissioned into service offers a multitude of Public Relations programs such as VIP entertainment, employee team building experiences, on-off premise promotions, public sweepstakes and even guerrilla marketing tactics including cross medium applications like radio trade giveaways and product placement opportunities (see bottom of page). Photo Sails provide unique front running branding opportunities for elite products and corporations desiring millions of QUALITY impressions. Additionally, Photo Sails are internationally patented and can offer product exclusive categories with services available in more than 23 countries.


Aaron Kiss, Owner of Photo Sails, has brought his outdoor marketing and event company to the next level of service. Mr. Kiss enthusiastically comments, "This agreement allows Photo Sails to offer branding programs to our clients at reduced prices in all markets with 9 consistent models of different sized beautiful yachts. Now we can offer a full inventory of sailing billboard programs to more marketers with a more flexible services and pricing structure.  "By consolidating our services with Hunter Dealers and passing those savings to our clients, we have cut program prices by an average of 35% to 40% of our initial offering."

"Marlow/Hunter is the largest sailboat manufacturer in North America, and part of the Luhrs Marine Group, an employee ownership company and is creating a buyer incentive program that will positively effect all parties involved in this virtually unlimited program. Marlow/Hunter, Hunter Dealers, Hunter Buyers, Photo Sails and of course the branding vessel clients all benefit from this cooperation," says Eric Macklin, Marketing and Training Manager for Hunter Marine Corp. "This creative and custom effort comes at an attractive time when economic factors effect the growth of new boat orders and the marine market as a whole. This program taps corporate advertising dollars to lower client cost and raise dealer sales of our inventory."

Photo Sails programs create visually hypnotic billboards out on waterways and beaches where they are the only advertisement on the visible horizon. Zoning laws and signage regulations are no concern because the sail of a sailboat is a functional part of the vessel when propelling the boat making navigation possible. These same first amendment rights apply to bumper sticker on private vehicles located in public areas. The bumper and sail must be present as a functioning part of the vehicle. What is placed on privately owned vehicles is only the business of the owner of that property. Additionally, all cities now wrap their buses and some buildings with advertisements.


"This newly formed marketing medium has endless capabilities to create impressions in the untapped areas of every major coastal city. We have a billboard you can ride allowing consumers to react with brands like never before! Furthermore, these branding vehicles use corporate advertising dollars to give back to local communities with the public relations programs offered. Corporations generating social responsibility and educational programs is a formula for success." says Steve Niewulis, Director of Marketing and Corporate Relations for Photo Sails.

With Photo Sails' new marketing medium on the horizon supported internationally by Hunter Marine Corp., don't be surprised when the next billboard you see is gliding effortlessly across your view while floating on other 2/3rds of the planet waiting to be tapped by advertisers.

CHARTER BARTER

Written by Saturday, 05 October 2013 02:11

 

The Photo Sails Charter Barter Program creates mutually beneficial relationships between charter boat owners and sponsors. Hundreds of charter boats exist in the United States and around the world. These vessels sail up to three times daily maximizing exposure, yet are businesses with many expenses. One major expense of a sailboat is the actual sails. By donating a free set of Photo Sails with sponsor-branded products imaged on them and securing a minimal monthly incentive payment, this symbiotic relationship will keep sponsored Photo Sails visible to the local population and the vessel owners expenses under control, creating an unforgettable branding vehicle in that location. The 50-foot, 49-passenger USCG inspected vessels particularly work well for this concept. These large catamarans are able to attend waterside events, concerts, air shows, and other festivals as branding vehicles. These sailing billboards create mobile platforms for public gatherings and sampling of products. Other public relations programs are easy to implement and expand upon such as radio trade giveaways and sweepstakes for free sailing rides. These contracts are limited in availability as each city has only a few vessels per market. Availability is on a first come first serve basis.

BEACH BILLBOARDS

Written by Monday, 09 September 2013 16:56

All across the globe, most high-end waterfront vacation resort managers offer guests a variety of sailing and windsurfing activity options. About 80 percent of all these rentals are Hobie Catamarans. In order to attract attention to the general public, catamaran vendors display or rig their sails. When sails are exposed to the daily weather elements, it limits their lifespan. Because replacing these sails is a costly part of doing business, it creates a unique marketing opportunity for a company with access to the technology offered by Photo Sails™.


Through Photo Sails, clients (sponsors) can offer these catamaran vendors a free set of sails. For the sponsor, there is a 200 square foot floating billboard opportunity in an area where there is only sand, sun and surf. Because these vendors are positioned on the beach, their sails are one of the first and last things vacationers see when at the beach.


Photo Sails’ patented technology is specially formulated to last for years, thus extending the life of the sail for the catamaran vendors as well as the advertising opportunity for outdoor advertisers. Simply put, through a partnership with Photo Sails, marketers can put billboards in areas where billboards do not exist for less than the cost of traditional billboards.

Photo Sailstm is the only international company approaching sailing sponsorship and marketing on sails programs from the funding corporations perspective. Historically, sponsors of sailing financially aid vessel owners in covering the expense of local and long distance ocean racing in trade for their association with the prestige of sailing as visibly imaged on that vessel's sails. These sailing billboards regularly hold their events far from shore where winds are ideal for racing yet detract from a sponsors number of impressions.

Our marketing sails programs place highly visible and spectator friendly branding vehicles in populated areas where events can be branded with the largest mobile branding platform available. These floating billboards are capable of supporting public relations programs at no additional cost to the branded corporation. The available rides on each Photo Sailstm vessel create VIP entertainment programs, employee rewards, team building experiences, and guerrilla marketing tactics such as radio trade giveaways and on-off premise promotions.


 

Finally, Photo Sailstm sailing sponsorship programs are not regulated by city ordinances or signage laws as sails are a functioning part of a vessel with the initial purpose of propulsion. Marketing on sails has been practiced by many companies and sailors in the past. Photo Sailstm are simply the next step in imaging and fabric technologies. Similar Supreme Court findings and rulings have been made for bumper stickers on privately owned cars.
