Competition is intense no matter what industry your small business falls into. The goal for any business, large or small, is to be noticed and remembered over the competition. One way to do this is through unique branding products or services.
So, how do you promote your business is ways that are memorable and can help convert possible customers. We suggest three ways for unique branding to get your name in the hands of as many people of possible, and more importantly, to be remembered in a positive light.
1. Personalized Kaleidoscopes as Corporate Gifts
” Don’t send important clients or hopeful employees or customers home with boring pens and stress balls, send them home with a kaleidoscope with your business logo and information on it. That client or employee will be impressed with such a unique gift. More importantly, they are sure to remember your business at the top of their mind for future reference. Such items are also perfect for giveaways at various corporate or community events.
2. Social Media
” Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest are beginning to play larger roles in the success of many businesses, especially small businesses. These social media sites allow small business to create a community around their brand and create relationships with their clients. The closer a customer or potential customer feels to a business, or feels that the business truly cares, the more likely they are to convert to actual customers and be loyal customers.
3. Be Personal
” So many businesses seem so distant and far from personal. Be sure to connect with your clients and customers on a personal basis as much as possible. Send holiday gifts or coupons, send emails for their birthdays, etc. Customers don’t want to give their money to cold, money hungry business executives, they rather support small, caring, and personable business that care about them. Loyalty is the biggest way to make your company stand out in the eyes of customers and future clients. Loyal customers are the best form of advertising there is.
How do you make your business stand out in the minds of customers and potential customers?
I just love summertime. Especially early summer right now when the corn is up and the fields and trees surrounding our gallery are every shade of green. This is the season that inspired many of Grant Wood’s paintings. In fact, he spent his last summer painting at Clear Lake, IA only 30 miles away from us.
Summertime inspires some lovely and playful kaleidoscopes too. Butterflies, dragonglies and all things summer have a way of showing up in and on scopes.
Luc and Sallie Durette have a new way to show of the beauty of the butterfly. Their great handheld scope, the Cosmo can now feature an inlay of wood with a beautiful butterfly inset.

The intricate mirror system mimics the folding of wings too.

If you live far from the ocean as we do in Iowa, The Shell Collector by Judith Paul is a lovely way to capture the spirit of the sea.

Love summer with all its spontaneity. We started our first creative project with the kids in April. We were inspired by the Trashtastic Yard Art competition at the Charles H MacNider Art Museum. Our family started the concept of building a pedestal outdoor kaleidoscope from recycled parts.
Karl took one child to the Saab Graveyard at Meyer Saab. There they found gaskets for the eyepiece and a fabulous transmission gear shaft that makes up the central part of the pedestal. Karl took our other child to another junkyard where even more parts were found. The next evening, I did a U Turn to pull a couple of ceramic urns out of a ditch. Those are in the backyard because they just didn’t fit the scope.
Extra parts from a C Bennett liquid suspension object cell were adapted into the these car parts with a new, longer mirror system. This YouTube video is of the scope from which we scavenged the object cell. Flag Liquid Suspension Kaleidoscope by C Bennett
A couple of old disc blades out of my Dad’s farm machine shop and an AWESOME rusty capitol column also found in a dusty corner…..

So we invite you to come explore the arts in North Iowa with us either in person or virtual! We also have another little hidden gem here in North Iowa. The Unionhurst Gallery is the only gallery in the world that features the paintings of Atlanta Sampson.
And a fabulous renovation has reopened the last standing designed hotel by Frank Lloyd Wright; the Historic Park Inn. At Kaleidoscopes To You, we may be out in the middle of a cornfield, but we are surrounded by diverse history and art.

Value is a concept I’ve been thinking about recently. Value is not the price you pay but what greater benefits you receive for the product for which you parted with some of your treasure.
We are often asked what creates a great value in a kaleidoscope. Value comes from quality materials, good construction, an aesthetic quality that is personal as well as the rarity of the piece.
Some friends were Facebook chatting about a $50 butter dish from a high end kitchen retailer. For $50, you could select a Spirit Kaleidoscope by the Collier Studios. This scope creates great value by using ABS plastic for the housing and FeMo clay for the interior object cells. No skimping on the mirror system or optics however and you have a great scope with a 2 mirror system.

For $100 (or a bit more), you can get a decent pair of shoes. For that same price, you could select a fabulous stained glass kaleidoscope by a number of artists such as Kathleen Hunt, David Sugich or Joanne Jacobs.
For $200, you can have a great meal in a great restaurant with fabulous wine. Or you can have an extraordinary signed, unique piece of art by Judith Paul or kaleidoscope jewelry by the Healy’s.

So value is your own personal judgment as to what is precious to you. Here at Kaleidoscopes To You, we search out the best values in scopes so that you have the best balance of optics, art and price in your kaleidoscopic experience.
