Do what works best for you and your business!
Participation Process: Register Each Month: Register on line for each month that you wish to contribute to the bag. Number of items: As we play "catch up" for 2020, we will deliver 75 bags each month, so 75 identical items are required. Item Drop off Deadline: January items must be delivered by 3pm on Wednesday, Jan 13, 2021 Drop Off Location:Georgen Scarbourogh & Associates, 243 Church St, NW Suite 100e Drop Off Time: Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm (or drop in the mail slot after hours, and mark your package with "VBA Welcome Bag") Delivery Method: All items must be secured with a paper clip/rubber band or in an envelope
Paper only, no marketing swag
Must be flat and no more than one 8.5" x 11" page; no newsletters, no swag. These bags are mailed to the residents and we have lots of contributors, we need to keep cost down.
Offer must be something of value such as a complimentary item, or discounted service and must be clear what the $ value is. Remember this is a "welcome" gift or promotion for new neighbors.
We suggest you do not include an expiration date. All items including expiration dates must be dated 6 months out from the mailing date. New neighbors don't always stop in right away...you don't want to lose them due to an expired offer.
If your contributions do not meet the criteria, they will not be included in the welcome bag.
This is an amazing way for VBA members to market to the new Vienna Residents each month! Don't wait for the new families to find you.. VBA BUSINESSES FIND THE NEW FAMILIES FIRST!
