Summertime and the livin’ is easy…

July is a great month to plan some fun and fresh campaigns for your business. Even though Independence Day has passed, there’s still a lot of great ways you can get your customers to celebrate with you!

1. Christmas in July

Everyone loves to celebrate Christmas, but now you can do it without the chilly weather! Host a Christmas in July party at your place of work. Have people dress up in their santa hats and ugly sweaters! Here in Ohio we love our Great Lakes Brewery Christmas Ale and some businesses even save a keg or two especially for this time of year. Don’t forget to promote your event on Save Local Now for everyone to see!

2. Health and Wellness

Everyone likes to have fun and stay fit during the summer. Host a day that encourages health and wellness. Whether it’s a fun game at the office or a field day of activities, anything that encourages friendly competition can make for a fun day. The best activities will also take advantage of the weather. Why not invite customers and clients and go on a company hike! Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!

3. Join the Community Events

Is there a fair or festival coming up? Join in on the fun! Share updates on social media and take some time to enjoy the activities. If you’re a retailer or restaurant see if you can set up a tent. You’re guaranteed to get new customers and get more involved in the community. These things only come once a year!

4. BBQ

Don’t forget about the food! Grill out with some hot eats and cool treats. Take your office out for ice cream or have a cookout! Invite your loyal customers over for a BBQ. You could also get a gift certificate to the local ice cream place and have a sweepstakes. Our experience is almost anything you can do with food, will make people happy! 😉

5. Summer Romance

Summer is the time for love! Take advantage of that opportunity by offering up exclusives. Have an enter-to-win date night package complete with movie tickets and a gift card to a local restaurant. Promote a special pre-date spa package for your clients. Whatever type of business you have, see if there is something special you can do for couples.

Not only will all of these ideas help build stronger relationships within the staff and with the customers, it will also give you stronger ties to the community. A little planning goes a long way to make some fun for everyone! Best part of all, you can use the Save Local Now platform to promote all these events. So log in, get started, and get out there and enjoy the season!

 

It is easy to find time to get some exercise outside of work, but what about exercising at work?  I’m not trying to say you need to run on the treadmill during your lunch break, but there are a few simple strategies you can implement throughout your day to enhance your normal movements.

Below are 3 easy steps that will help you stay healthy while at work:

1)  Switch up your posture throughout the day.  If possible, trade your desk chair for a yoga ball or a standing desk, or hold meetings and conference calls as walks.  The extra movement will do you a tremendous amount of good.  The Save Local Now headquarters often uses yoga balls instead of chairs.  Whenever you walk into the production room, you are bound to see our interns, Sarah & Tracey (pictured below), bouncing around!

2)  Take breaks every few hours.  It’s important to leave your desk periodically and walk around.  These breaks from your desk are good for your eyesight, your muscles, and your overall wellbeing.

3)  Leave your brown-bag lunch at home.  The best way to plan a walk or break during your day is to commit to getting lunch.  Going outside and walking to a deli or restaurant will give you a well-deserved breath of fresh air and break from a hectic day.

This is our favorite step, because not only are you getting some good exercise, you are also helping local restaurants!  Save Local Now is fortunate to be located in downtown Chagrin Falls, OH where there is a plethora of delicious, local restaurants.  But even if your office is not within walking distance to some restaurants, just walking around during your lunch break will do the trick.
