A promotional calendar can be used throughout business to serve many purposes. Many companies around the world use calendars to promote a new direction or product in-house. For example, incentives can be delivered with a time frame or sales goal in calendar form. Many times a promotional calendar is offered with other promotional items. For example, golf resorts sometimes offer pens, calendars, notepads and other items to remind customers of who they are and build loyalty. Some promotional products are tossed aside because they are not useful. A promotional calendar is a usable giveaway where you can still promote yours products and services!

Promotional calendars should be bright enough to attract attention. Color is dependent upon the targeted customer and the emotions that are being addressed. Consider the calendars location. Is it a business calendar that is displayed on a desk, hung on a wall or refrigerator, or for personal use, carried in a purse or briefcase? Make sure that the graphics used create a cohesive design effectively reaching its audience.
