Yes - you read that correctly, a huge yellow duck with your logo on the front is a no-fail attention grabber! 


Why a Rubber Duck?

Nostalgia is a hot trend in products and marketing right now. Rubber ducks have been around for many years and are often associated with childhood and happy memories. Many people have fond memories of playing with rubber ducks during bath time or at the pool. Custom rubber ducks are also relatively inexpensive. They are available in many different colors and designs, making them a fun and collectible item for people of all ages. They can be used for a variety of purposes, from decoration to toy to stress relief. They are often used in bath time, as a desk accessory, or as a decoration in a themed room. There is something inherently quirky and whimsical about rubber ducks. They are not an item that is typically taken seriously, which can make them a fun and lighthearted addition to any collection or environment. Overall, rubber ducks have become an iconic and beloved item due to their accessibility, versatility, and nostalgia-inducing qualities.

Now take your average little rubber ducky and increase the size 10x…think how that would impact any initial first impression!



Duck Duck Jeep

Customized rubber ducks have been made popular in part by the Jeep community, specifically by Jeep Wrangler drivers. The rubber duck has become somewhat of a symbol for Jeep owners, representing a sense of camaraderie and community. Jeep owners often wave to each other when passing on the road, and the rubber duck has become a way to acknowledge other Jeep owners in a fun and unique way. Promotional rubber ducks are small and lightweight, making them an easy and low-maintenance form of decoration. "Ducking a Jeep" is a term used by some Jeep owners to refer to the practice of attaching a custom rubber duck toy to their Jeep, usually on the exterior mirrors or in the drivers-side door handle.


There are many businesses and industries that use “Ducking Jeeps” as a promotional tool. Real Estate agents can customize a rubber duck with their logo or contact information to serve as a reminder of the agent and their services. Hotels, resorts, and other hospitality businesses can use branded rubber ducks as a fun and unique way to promote a stay or getaway. Brands in the entertainment industry, such as amusement parks, movie theaters, or concert venues, can use customized rubber ducks as a way to promote their business as part of a larger marketing campaign. Schools and universities can use custom rubber ducks as a way to promote school spirit.

If you are an avid Jeep “ducker” what better way to really catch their attention than with a 12" rubber duck customized with your company logo.




Here are the basic steps to duck a Jeep with a customized rubber duck, big or small:

(It's important to note that while many Jeep owners enjoy "ducking" their Jeeps, it's important to be respectful of local laws and regulations regarding the use of decorations on vehicles.)


You Don't Have to Own a Jeep to Giveaway Custom Ducks

Customizing your average rubber duck with your logo for a marketing campaign is cute, but it's been done. Using a GIANT rubber duck in a marketing promotion is really unique! This can be a fun and creative way to attract attention and generate interest in your business. Here are a few ideas to make that happen:


Send an Unforgettable Mailer:

Place the custom logo'd giant rubber duck in a large box filled with packing peanuts or shredded paper. Add your branding to the box and include a note that says, “Hey there, we hope this duck makes a splash in your day! Thanks for taking the time to check us out. Let's make some waves together!”

Sending a giant custom logo rubber duck in the mail is a unique and creative way to get the attention of potential prospects. Direct mail marketing packages can be a powerful tool for businesses looking to increase brand awareness, generate leads, and drive sales. Use this scenario for targeted high qualified prospects you are trying to get in contact with. Direct mail can be highly personalized, so we suggest that you tailor your message to the recipient's interests, location, or purchase history. Add a handwritten note to the package, introducing yourself and your business, and explaining why you've sent them the duck. Make it clear that you want to stand out and show them that you are different from the competition. Personalization can lead to increased engagement and response rates. Direct mail can also be cost-effective, especially when compared to other forms of advertising. By targeting your audience and optimizing your message, you can get a high return on investment.

Since direct mail is a physical item that recipients can hold and touch, it will be more memorable and increase the likelihood of it being kept and referred to in the future. And what could be more memorable than a jumbo rubber duck printed with your logo? We're betting they'll at least pick up the phone on your next call!



Create Social Media Buzz:

Park one of your giant logo'd ducks front and center at the entrance reception desk of your business. Come up with a unique and memorable hashtag that people can use to share photos and posts about the giant rubber duck. For example, #RubberDuckMadness or #QuackAttack. The followers with the most clever post or caption can win their own branded rubber duck!

Social media contests can be a great way to promote your business, while increasing brand awareness, engagement, and user-generated content. First, you'll want to define what you want to achieve with the contest, such as increasing followers, generating leads, or promoting a product or service. Choose a hashtag that is easy to remember and relates to your brand or the contest theme. Make sure it's unique and hasn't been used before to avoid confusion. You can use the hashtag chosen as an easy way to track all the participant's posts. Offer a prize that is relevant to your audience and the contest theme. The prize should be attractive enough to motivate people to participate. Then use social media to promote the contest and encourage people to participate. Encourage people to take photos of themselves with your branded giant rubber duck and share them on social media using a branded hashtag. You could also run a contest or giveaway for the best photo or most creative post. When people start sharing photos and videos of the giant rubber duck on social media, share their content on your own accounts to show your appreciation and encourage further engagement. Monitor the contest closely to ensure that the rules are followed and that there is no inappropriate content or spam. Also, moderate the contest to select a winner fairly. Once the contest is over, share the results with your followers and thank everyone who participated. You can also share user-generated content from the contest to showcase your brand's creativity and authenticity.



Go Big with Your New Product Launch:

Brand the giant rubber duck to promote a new product and advertise the customized duck as a giveaway for the first 100 customers who purchase your new product!

Using a promotional product as a giveaway is a common marketing tactic to incentivize customers to purchase a new product or try out a new service. Determine the purchase stipulations: is there a minimum purchase requirement? is it the first 50 people to sign up? or is there a certain number of items that must be purchased in order to receive the promotional giveaway? Advertise the promo product giveaway - in this case giant promotional duck - to customers through marketing materials such as social media posts, email newsletters, or in-store signage. Make sure to communicate the purchase threshold clearly so that customers understand the requirements to receive the custom rubber duck. Once the customer has made the eligible purchase, distribute the giant rubber duckie to them. This could be done in-store at the time of purchase or through mail delivery if the customer made their purchase online. After the customer receives the customized rubber duck promo, follow up with them to ensure that they are satisfied with both the new product and the unique promo product giveaway. This can be a good opportunity to request a review or feedback about their experience.



Turn Heads with a Sponsorship:

Set up the jumbo custom rubber duck in a visible location at the event venue to create an eye-catching centerpiece that will attract attendees' attention and create a memorable photo opportunity. Add a fish bowl for business cards as a chance to win one of these giant logo'd ducks!

A giant custom rubber ducky can be a fun and attention-grabbing way to promote a local event and increase brand visibility. Consider sponsoring a local event or festival and featuring the giant rubber duck as part of your sponsorship. This could be a great way to generate brand awareness and connect with your target audience. Having the giant duck with your logo displayed at your booth will be a show-stopper, drawing potential customers in to talk with your staff. You can take this one step further, and create a giveaway raffle for a customized big duck. Offering a giveaway can make a business stand out from competitors who are not offering any incentives. This can create a positive impression of your brand and help you gain an edge in a crowded market. Set aside space at your table for the event attendees to drop their business card in a fish bowl. Business cards provide valuable data, including contact information, job titles, and company names, which can be used for marketing and sales efforts. The winner of the drawing will receive a big custom rubber duck with your logo! Additionally, you'll collect the contact information of potential customers that you can use to follow up with after the event is over. Your sales team can use this information to tailor their marketing efforts to the specific needs and interests of their leads. This can increase the likelihood of converting leads into customers.




No matter how you choose to use it, a promotional giant rubber duck is sure to turn heads and create buzz for your brand. Just be sure to have a clear marketing message and goal in mind before launching your campaign. Executive Advertising can help you customize a giant duck now with your logo on our website:
