Marketing & Promotion Ideas for Ice Cream Month

Not only is July National Ice Cream month, but these notable days also fall within July: Creative ice cream flavors day, Strawberry sundae day, Ice cream day and Vanilla Ice Cream Day.  There are so many ideas for tying a promotion, event or marketing campaign around ice cream- let your imagination take over!

Showing appreciation to your employees on a hot summer day makes an easy tie in to ice cream. Serve up your bowls of ice cream with color changing spoons  with your logo or a message of appreciation imprinted on them they can take home.  This idea works well at company picnics, corporate outings or golf events.   Add a color changing bowl for even more impact.

Six different color combinations to choose from.

Create a fun in-store promotion using ice cream scoops as a gift with purchase.  Or mail out postcards, send to your email list, or post on social media for them to come in to get an ice cream scoop.  Or use them as trade show and festival giveaways or swag bag items.

Have a “make your own sundae” promotion at community events or for a customer appreciation event.  Serve ice cream in a vintage malt cup they can keep and have a selection of toppings to choose from- fun and customizable so everyone gets the ice cream and toppings they want.   Ice cream sundae bars are also popular at weddings and these can double as your imprinted wedding favor.
