Being a new business owner  is HORD. Not hard, but HORD. Having problems marketing your brand? Need some creative ways to market your brand? There is nothing worse than spending hours on newsletters and social media posts, and publish them for the world to see, only to see tumbleweeds and crickets in return; we’ve all been there. Thankfully, I’ve been in business for a while and I’ve found some unconventional ways to market my brand to the masses. There are the traditional ways like sharing your brand on social media or going to business conferences and networking, but here are 3 creative ways, you can use to promote your brand.

Nameplate Necklaces

I’ve always wanted a nameplate necklace. I wanted it to say, “HNIK” but I thought, why not have it in the name of my beauty blog, “GlossyCoffee” instead so it opens up the conversation for me to discuss my blog; it’s a great way to market your blog offline. I ordered a necklace from Very Last Detail, a company that makes custom nameplate necklaces, and I absolutely LOVE my custom necklace from They have them in ALL types of fonts, so you can select one that fits your personal style. I love the quality of this necklace, so this will be sure to last for years to come! Yes, I will also grab another one, that says “HNIK”

blog life tshirts

This may not be entirely unconventional, but don’t sleep on the power of a t-shirt. I don’t know how many people have stopped me and asked me what my T-shirt says. I started a T-Shirt line, strictly catered to bloggers, and I proudly rock the T-Shirts from my line, “That Blog Life” whenever I can.

You can start your own t-shirt line, completely FREE using If someone purchases your shirt and rocks it, that’s FREE marketing for you. T-Shirts are an all around win win situation. I even created a course, showing you how to turn your Spreadshirt Store into a brand! You can purchase it here. Use CODE: BLOGGER to snag it for only $15! [Reg. $27]

Mugs, Tote Bags, Cellphone Cases

blogger accessories

Just like T-Shirts are a great way to promote your brand, having a bunch of accessories, like totes, coffee mugs and cellphone cases are an amazing way to promote your brand. You can also just have a store full of accessories using Spreadshirt as well, which you can start completely free. In addition to this being a great marketing tool, this is also an amazing way to generate some passive income for your brand.


These are just 3 ways to promote or market your brand. Of course there are a TON more, but this is a great starting point if you’ve been struggling with getting people to visit your website or interact with your on social media.
