50 Nautical Marketing Methods

From Sea Creature Seating to Poised Pirate Pictorials

— May 20, 2011 — Fashion
Marketers are always looking for new ways to promote their products. These nautical marketing methods will garner publicity with a fishy twist.

Instead of looking to the street to generate new ideas, why not take a glance to the sea for a change? Jewelry sparkles when given a shell shape and fashion editorials are enticing with sailor hats and striped shirts. These nautical marketing methods are not only limited to fashion and accessories; furniture is another product that's imbued with a seafaring feel. The Anemone Armchair, for example, has a sea creature appearance that makes the seating colorful and distinct.

Even if you can't swim, these nautical marketing methods are reason enough to take the plunge and start molding your products with a seafaring spin.
