When You Should Use Different Types of Balloons

Balloons can draw more attention to outdoor signage advertising an event, a store's grand opening, or a sale at a car dealership. However, you don't want to use ordinary helium-filled latex or mylar balloons. You want something that will last longer and stand up to inclement weather or a wide temperature range. The best balloons are those you can use for at least six months.

Whether they're reusable vinyl balloons for the indoors or balloon clusters you place outside, you want a display you'll get your money's worth from. Even for the casual party host, indoor reusable balloons eliminate the need to rush to the store for new supplies to create an inviting and celebratory atmosphere. Here's an overview of when you should use different types of balloons and not just go out and buy the standard, everyday pack. 

You Want to Draw Attention to an Apartment Complex

Property owners and leasing staff may run seasonal specials to attract new residents. While outdoor signs and banners can attract attention, these tactics may not be enough to stand out. Who's to say the complex across the street won't do the same thing? Adding balloons on poles or permanent outdoor reusable balloons can draw more attention to any outdoor signage. These balloon displays can also add some flair to a complex's permanent signage that displays its official name and marks the entrance to the property. 

Balloons could easily fly away if you use ordinary ones and try to attach them to signage. All it takes is a strong gust of wind, a rainstorm, or someone looking to cause some mischief to ruin the display. BalloonBobber® balloon clusters and balloons on poles are more durable because they can anchor to the ground. In some cases, the balloons might anchor to a pole sign that's weighted down. This decreases the chances the balloons will fly away or become damaged by the wind. Furthermore, you can bring the poles or clusters back indoors each evening.

This can help protect the signage and balloons from vandalism and let property managers reuse the balloon clusters and displays only when there's a leasing special or event. Leasing and property managers will save money because they can reuse the cluster kits and not have to replace missing or popped balloons halfway through an event. Besides, you'll also have the option of choosing balloons that can last outdoors for over six months. This increases the use and longevity you'll get out of a single display. 

You're a Realtor Who Hosts Multiple Open Houses

Reusable vinyl balloons work well for real estate agents. You can attach them to open house signage and put them along a property's entrance or walkway. Colorful balloons help attract people's attention and let them know they're headed in the right direction. The best balloons and displays enhance a home's curb appeal. However, reusable vinyl balloons can have the same effects if your job is to sell or lease a commercial property.

If you want hard-to-pop balloons, you'll find them in a DuraBalloon® outdoor cluster kit you can mount to nearly any surface. For instance, you might want a small cluster attached near or on a storefront's window. You could also use balloons on stakes to put posts in the ground to accent landscaping and shrubbery along a walking path. These kits are simple to attach and remove so agents can assemble them before an open house or showing. Then, the agent can remove them within seconds, load the balloon kits into a car, and take them to the next property.

Since these balloons last for a while, agents won't have to constantly go to the store every time there's an open house. Plus, they won't have to use their time or an assistant's hours to blow up balloons and assemble displays. Balloons on poles and permanent outdoor reusable balloons are always ready to go. All you have to do is take them out and attach them to the desired surface or location.

You Own or Manage a Car Dealership

Drive past most car dealerships, and you'll see displays of balloons sooner or later. Special financing, sales, and grand opening events tend to bring out the dealership balloons in droves. But unless they're done right, the displays and balloons can begin to look tacky as they sag or deflate. While car dealerships use digital and traditional advertising to bring people in, balloons are a form of outdoor advertising that helps drive more foot traffic. That's because many people tune out radio and television ads or aren't exposed to them at all via streaming services. 

And while internet users and browsers will still see pay-per-click ads on their phones and computers, they may shut them down. It's easy to skip an ad or make it disappear from the screen after so many seconds. Unless someone is specifically looking for a new car or researching potential options, they're unlikely to see a promo ad in full. Dealership balloons can let everyone who drives by know there's a sale or a special savings event happening. The displays may trigger a need or desire to purchase a new or used car that someone's been holding back on. 

For instance, a person might be waiting for lower prices or no interest financing. Permanent outdoor reusable balloons and hard-to-pop balloons make people look twice at banners that state a sale is going on. The best part is you can leave the displays and balloons up overnight or during inclement weather. If you have a sale or special that goes on for weeks or months, your employees will only have to put the displays up and take them down once.

You're Hosting a Grand Opening for a New Location

Opening a new location can be an exciting opportunity to build your brand. It's also a chance to advertise your products and services and let people know how your company benefits the community. Indoor reusable balloons and outdoor balloon kits help you decorate for grand opening events and liven up the atmosphere. If you only have one location or a small retail footprint, buying new balloons for each grand opening may not seem like a big deal. However, reusable decorations are useful if you're a growing firm or frequently adding and acquiring new sites.

They're more cost-effective and you don't have to think about what to use for decorations. Plus, you can have the balloons and displays in your branded colors and color schemes to help maintain a consistent image. No more worrying about whether red and blue balloons are available at one of the local stores. Waiting until the last minute or relying on local retailers may backfire, especially if shipment or supply chain delays exist. In addition, more remote or isolated areas may not have balloons or display products available.

PermaShine® indoor reusable balloons come in tall towers that can accent parts of a retail store's space. You can also get balloon bouquets that sit on table tops to highlight merchandise. Consider using balloon banquets as centerpieces if you're hosting a dinner or lunch as part of the grand opening event. Besides bouquets, indoor reusable balloons come as single stands to draw attention to a business's certifications, awards, or other marks of excellence.

You Want to Incorporate Balloons Into Your Decor

Reusable vinyl balloons can become a permanent part of your location's decor or indoor appearance. For example, ceiling balloons are possible with hanging balloon kits. The best balloons come in different colors and layers. Your store can hang up four-layer balloon kits that draw foot traffic toward specific products or areas that contain your company's top sellers. For consistency, you can stick with two colors that represent your brand.

However, these displays aren't something you want staff members to hang or replace each week. You also need hard-to-pop balloons so customers don't carry out any mischievous ideas. Some dealership balloons might use indoor hanging kits to highlight new vehicle models that offer special financing. Because these balloons might come closer to the ground or the cars, sturdy materials are a must. Thankfully, these hanging balloon kits are durable and last for years indoors.

Hanging balloon kits are decorations companies use for recognition ceremonies or employee events. The great thing about using sturdy, permanent balloons is that an organization does not have to reinvent the wheel for each occasion. Permanent balloons do not have to stay on the ceiling in an event room. However, that may be the right move if the colors are basic enough to suit the needs of various gatherings. 

You Host Many Events or Celebrations at Your Home

People who host birthday celebrations, baby showers, and holiday parties at their homes quite often may want outdoor signs with balloons. These yard signs can be more subtle or make a huge statement. For instance, some people celebrate their children's high school graduations with large yard signs and balloons on poles. Parents with more than one child probably wouldn't mind reusing the balloons and saving on some of their celebration costs.

Say you're hosting a gender reveal party for one of your family members or friends. You could purchase a yard sign ground pole kit that announces the baby's gender. Attached to the sign are a small array of color-appropriate balloons. The signs, kits, and balloons are reusable and stand up to the elements. You can reuse the entire display with the next gender reveal or pass the decorations down to other friends or family members.

Cluster pole kits work for birthdays or holiday parties since you can mix and match exterior designs and balloon colors. For Christmas, add the red and green balloons for a festive touch. And when it's time for one of the kiddo's birthdays, add in more of a color assortment and change the pole wrapping to pictures of birthday cakes and party favors.

You Prefer to Attach Balloons to Windows

Permanent outdoor reusable balloons are available as suction cup kits. These kits attach directly to a location's windows. Most of the time, the balloons are attached to the outside of the windows. The balloons attract the attention of those walking by. You can also place smaller versions on a vehicle's windows from the outside. Suction cup kits ensure people can locate an actual store or product quickly.

Anyone who has walked a car lot knows how challenging it can be to find an advertised vehicle or available makes and models. Putting balloons attached by suction cups to the windows eliminates any confusion and makes it easier for customers to shop. Putting balloons on the outside of windows also helps clients find the right store or location in a crowded strip mall. 

Suction cup kits come with three attached balloons or a single balloon. One of the advantages of choosing kits that allow up to three balloons includes color diversity. However, single balloon kits can simplify the look and reduce the appearance of clutter. You might also try mixing and matching the kits.

Reasons to Use Permanent Balloon Kits and Decorations

The best balloons do the job they're supposed to and are cost-effective. Individuals and business leaders can use reusable indoor and outdoor balloon kits to attract attention, celebrate, and mark locations for visitors. Permanent balloons stand up to harsh conditions and are decorations that you can frequently repurpose. Most are customizable for different brands, color schemes, and occasions.
