Using Bobble Head Dolls to Promote Your Book or Comics
You’ll be happy to know that it’s actually very easy to use custom bobble heads. They’re customized so you can use them for just about anything. While using generic bobble head dolls can work as a promotional tool, you won’t be utilizing its full potentials. Let’s say that you have a comic book out about the newest superhero in town. There are a lot of strategies that you can use to promote it. You can do tours of comic book shops and maybe even do a comic book signing. But if you’re not that popular yet, not a lot of people will go to it.
What you can do is you can have wobbly headed dolls or custom statuettes made. You can search online for a good custom figurine manufacturer and you can show them the main character of what you’re trying to promote. With the expertise of the manufacturer, you will have a promotional tool that looks like it jumped right out of your comics. You can then use the custom designed figurines to generate interest for your comics. There’s no better way to promote it than the superhero himself promoting it for you.
There are a lot of things that you can do to make it more effective. Since they’re customized, you can design the bobble head dolls in such a way that it’s “acting”. For example, you can design it with one hand up as if he’s about to fly like Superman. You should also try to make it as close as possible to the illustrations or descriptions in your work. You should follow the looks, costume and even the color. You should also print a promotional message. It can be something simple as the name of the superhero. If you prefer, you can print some sort of teaser on the custom bobble heads or on the containers. You can generate suspense by putting just the date of the release as if something big is going to happen on that date. Talk to your custom figurine manufacturer about all the possibilities to make sure that you can take advantage of them.
You can also put a voice recording in the bobble head dolls. That’s a relatively newer technology that will surely surprise a lot of people. If you’re going to pattern the custom bobble heads after a main character in your book, you can have them say a great line from the book. But not all manufacturers can do this. This is why it’s important that you choose a custom figurine manufacturer that has a lot of experience.
