I'm going to be at the Steampunk World's Fair
in NJ this coming May and my lovely wife was asking how I plan to promote the website.
Granted, I'm going there to have fun, but it would be nice to to have something on hand that would remind people about the site after the event.
Other than standard business cards, I got to thinking about swag and what kind of things I would hold onto if it were handed to me at a convention. Here's what I came up with:
- Military dog tags
- Pewter dress pins with the dieselpunks "gear" logo
- 3" embroidered patches with the dieselpunks "gear" logo
- Stickers with the dieselpunks "gear" logo and URL
The rough part is, these things aren't free and the maintaining the site already sucks about $150/month out of my wallet. The last thing I want is a surplus of unmoved/unwanted swag when I could be putting that money into something better for the site.
So, here's the question. If you seriously considered adding one of these things to your standard dieselpunk gear/wardrobe, which would you like the best? Do you have any other totally obvious suggestions that I haven't listed?
