Teen Driving Awareness Month Custom Challenge Coins

November 19th, 2013

January is Teen Driving Awareness Month.  Do you have an educational class or conference planned?  If you do, you’ll benefit from the creation and distribution of custom challenge coins.  In fact, how else can you reach a large number of teens at once in your community?

Coins are the type of item that elicits a positive response.  Made from your choice of metal and decorated with your selection of add-ons, they’re unique, personal, and memorable.  The message included on your coins can literally save a teen’s life so the mission is to come up with a gift item that they can relate to.

You can easily choose an unusual shape for your coins.  These specialty challenge coins are recognizable from a glance.  They gain people’s attention and get them talking about driving safely.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports, “Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens.”  Distracted driving accounts for many of these accidents.  With cell phone usage on the rise, many deaths have been blamed on texting while driving.  Your coins can encourage young drivers to “Tune in by turning it off” or a similar message.

Custom challenge coins are the type of gift item that makes a difference.  Teens respond well to the mementos because they’re very similar to currency and medallions.  There’s a weightiness to coins.  That’s because they’re made from metal and crafted with care.  Challenge coins are durable and meaningful.

Use custom challenge coins to remind teens about the dangers that they encounter while behind the wheel of a vehicle.  Contact us today for a no obligation, free price quote.  We can help you determine the size, shape, style, and number of custom coins you need to order for your safe driving initiative.

Ways to Promote Glamping as a Lifestyle

November 11th, 2013

Glamping is luxury camping at its finest. Men, women, and children no longer have to “rough it” to enjoy the Great Outdoors. They can stay in yurts and log cabins equipped with WiFi, enjoy fine cuisine, and choose from a long list of amenities that make their vacation memorable and personal.

The term “glamping” was coined to describe what has now become a popular way of becoming one with nature. Without giving up modern conveniences, travelers can get immersed in an outdoor setting and still upload photos, communicate with friends online, and find food that fits their diets and lifestyles with ease. They no longer have to spend days sleeping in cramped tents, dining on canned beans, and huddle around a campfire for warmth.

There are a number of different “glamping” accommodations that people can choose from. They include:

  • Yurts
  • Treehouses
  • Tipis
  • Safari Tents
  • Caravans

If you happen to own a glamorous accommodation that you rent out to tourists or run a “glamping” community online, there are a number of different ways you can promote your efforts. Here are a few for you to consider:

  • Create custom challenge coins to replace traditional business cards. Do you have something to say? Want others to become interested in “glamping”? A personal gift is the ticket to making a great first impression. Distribute coins to people who request information from you. You can send the “business cards” out with promotional materials as a way of thanking men and women for getting into contact with you. Visit Signature Coins online gallery for inspiration.
  • Encourage people to share their experience with their family members and friends. Offer a discount or some other sort of incentive for referrals. Once a person has referred a specific number of people to your “glamping” accommodation or community, they can earn a prize. There can be a coin created specifically for referring new “glampers”.

Glamping” is a fun experience for individuals, couples, and families to enjoy. Despite the fact that it’s a relatively new phenomenon, it’s gaining popularity because people no longer have to give up the comforts of home to enjoy a truly unique outdoor experience. They can have luxurious accommodations and a vacation in nature worth remembering. You can be a part of some of your customer and club members’ happiest memories.

How to Help People Stick to Their New Year’s Resolutions

November 8th, 2013

As you know, 2014 is right around the corner. The new year inspires people to change their ways. Resolutions are made and are often quickly broken. Despite men and women and their good intentions, it’s hard to break bad habits and replace them with healthier ones. That’s why it’s important to offer support and information to people trying to better their lives through resolutions.

Encourage, Persuade, and Help Others to Meet Their Goals

If you’re a life coach, a counselor, the owner of a gym, a financial adviser or even a college admissions director, you have the power to encourage, persuade, and help others. There are a number of different ways you can make sure they stay on top of the goals that they’ve set for themselves. One of the easiest is to provide education. You do this by being supportive and answering questions as they arise.

If people are well-informed, they’ll feel confident in their decision to change their lives. There will be no more broken or forgotten resolutions. There will be fewer disappointments and challenges. People will feel empowered and eager to try new things. In fact, their success rate will rise as their confidence is boosted.

Ways You Can Support People as They Make Resolutions

The American Psychological Association offers a list of ways that people can make their New Year’s resolutions stick. Psychologist, Lynn Bufka, PhD notes that taking small steps towards larger goals can increase success.

Here are a few of the ways that you can encourage men and women to stay on top of their newly set goals:

  • Offer an incentive for meeting a goal. A custom challenge coin makes the perfect reward item for a number of different reasons. First and foremost, it has a distinct look and feel. It resembles currency and medals which have value. Challenge coins also have a long, respectable history. A time-honored tradition is to give someone a memento for their hard work and dedication.
  • Provide physical, emotional, and intellectual support. Make sure that people have what they need to keep plugging away at their goals. This can be something as simple as a website URL that can be accessed and read for informational purposes. You could even set up a toll-free number specifically to address any questions that might come up throughout the resolution process.

The key to forming a new habit is sticking to it. Through the aforementioned tips listed above, you can offer people in your community the support they need going into the new year. Experts agree, that it takes anywhere from 20 to 40 days for a new habit to stick. Help the men and women in your city meet their goals by encouraging and educating them in 2014.
