5 Water Safety Promotion Ideas


All over our planet, people enjoy beautiful waters and beaches – canoeing, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, surfing, jet skiing, swimming. Fun on the water is always an amazing adventure; however, remember with sun, sand and surf, you need to be safe on the water and in the water!

You can bet if you are dusting off your flip flops and heading to the water, your customers and employees are doing the same! So, why not give your promotional campaign a water safety refresher? As a business, one of the best things you can do for a customer is to show them that you care about them and their families’ well-being. A gift of safety is a very good reminder of those feelings and a gift for water-front activities is just the ticket because they are appropriate gift all year long.

Security for Customers and Employees

The United States Coast Guard has requirements for safety equipment – basic items crucial in emergencies. However, there is other “equipment” that is not necessarily required by law, but may certainly keep the people we love safe or even save a life on the water. Here are water safety promotional products that should be a part of every adventure on or near the water.

1. Waterproof Cellphone Pouch

Recently, a waterproof promotional product was in the news when two young men called 911 after one of their kayaks sank on Lake Michigan. The call was possible because the cellphone was in a Waterproof Cellphone Pouch. Help arrived soon after the call and the young men were rescued. Many items you bring to the waterfront, besides your cellphone, need to stay dry. Giving a useful gift such as a Waterproof Dry Sack will keep towels, clothes, documents and cameras safe from the water. You can start your summer promotion off right with these perfect ideas for attracting customers.

2. Safety Whistle

Another personal safety tool that is simple and extremely reliable is a safety whistle. The U.S. Coast Guard regulations state that if a paddle board is operated outside a surfing, swimming or bathing areas, they are “vessels” and operators must have a life jacket and a whistle. A safety whistle is an effective way for customers to be listening to your promotion while making sure they are heard in case of an emergency or to warn boaters in the vicinity. Whistles fit into any type of budget and could be the perfect choice for your customers. In addition, to stay legal on the water, the U.S. Coast Guard regulations state that if you’re on the water after sunset, you need to have a flashlight, or similar lighting device.

3. First Aid Kit

Safety also includes being able to easily handle small injuries, scrapes and cuts with the help of a first aid kit. Gauze, bandages, tweezers and antiseptic should make the trip every time you venture to the beach. So, if you’re looking for an easy gift appropriate for water safety and more – problem solved! This is an affordable idea with a collection of protection that can be found in a variety of first aid kits customized with your logo.

4. Sun Protection

Fun on the water usually means sunshine. Too much sun can result in a painful sunburn or lead to more serious health issues including premature aging, eye damage and skin cancer. More than one million cases of skin cancer are reported in the United States each year. Your customers are free to enjoy time in the sun because you are helping to protect them from overexposure with a variety of carefully chosen giveaway ideas including: SPF30 sunscreen, lip balm with SPF, baseball caps, bucket hats and also UV protection/performance clothing.

Keeping your eyes safe from the sun is important. The bright summer sun is a great time to bring out summer promo gear to protect your customers! Shield your customer’s eyes from harmful rays, whether they are on a summer vacation or simply spending the day in a boat. Give sunglasses away as a picnic favor, inside a summer festival gift bag or at a sporting event. Or, how about the wide canopy of an umbrella to keep away from the sun at a golf event, celebrity baseball game or field day excursion.

5. Water

Sometimes safety is as simple as staying hydrated. When it’s warm, people head outdoors to enjoy the weather. Dehydration can creep up quickly on hot days full of fun and action. Giving away water bottles will be a simple reminder to stay safe during outdoor activities. Drinkware is a practical and durable safety gift that will be used by customers and seen for months, providing you with repeated brand exposure.

Promotional Merchandise: Yahoo Answers Gifts


Yahoo Answers, a popular service that allows users to submit questions and answer other users’ questions just celebrated it’s birthday. As part of their one year anniversary, they are offering promotional gifts to their answerers, and they’ve done a really great job with their gift program. For starters, it’s the perfect service for a gift program because the answerers are really part of a community that enjoys being a part of the service. Likewise, Yahoo Answers really depends on it’s answerers to have a service at all, so Yahoo benefits from rewarding them and giving them a tangible reminder that they are a part of a community. (In fact, while Yahoo Answers has been remarkably successful, Google Answers was recently shut down.) yahoo answers promotional mug

The gifts were determined by the level of participation from the answerers, from stickers and magnets all the way up to mugs, custom embroidered caps and logo fleece jackets. The variety of products allows them to give gifts to the widest possible range of participants, while recognizing the most active ones with more valuable gifts. Although they haven’t committed to doing it again next year, it also gives the Answerers something to work towards for next year.

There are couple other things I liked about this gift program. One is that they have the Answerers log in to give their desired shipping address, which brings them back to the site and cuts down on sending gifts to the wrong place or to Answerers who aren’t interested anymore. Another is that, at each price range, they chose visible gifts, like hats and stickers that will promote the Yahoo Answers service. The answerers who are eligible for gifts and promotional merchandise are also the most likely evangelists for the service, and Yahoo just made it a little easier for them to promote.
