Distributing printed clothing is a wonderful way to promote your brand because your brand gets visibility for as long as there is strength in the cloth or till it gets cut up or burnt. The most common item under this category and one that we see all the time are T-shirts. Caps/hats and scarves are the other commonly used branding options on printed clothing.
T-shirts come in every which size, they can be customised, they can come in thin knitwear material for next to nothing or they could be expensive T-shirts that are given to exclusive customers. They have numerous places to place your branding. T-shirts offer many options for branding, from different kinds of printing to embroidery to dyeing in different colours. T-shirts also offer a lot of visibility and are therefore widely used. For wide distribution and mass visibility, the cheaper varieties of T-shirts are used. These form an article of cheap clothing that one may use for an event, but because these quickly lose their shape, they are soon relegated to cleaning the car or polishing the silver or even used to pad the dog’s basket! When branding T-shirts, you have the option of putting your branding on the front or back or the sleeves. You could have the T-shirt dyed in your brand colours. Lower quality T-shirts normally have the branding done in a big and obvious manner while more expensive T-shirts have more discrete branding.
When building a company, it takes a lot of time, effort, fund, creativity and strength from people. It is not easy to build a company and even handle it. But what’s even harder is to manage it to become successful and thriving in the world of business. There are other businesses trying to be successful as well and you have to compete with them if you want to be the best.
Now, as we all know, there is a fierce competition between businesses nowadays. And it’s all because various small businesses are trying to compete with other huge companies for the attention and the money of consumers. Though it may be harder because these huge companies have long been in the business and know the ins and outs of the industry, small businesses still have the chance to make it to the top if the management will put in a little more effort and appreciate the true life-force of the company.
The consumers are considered as the life-force of the company because without them, who will buy their products or who will get their services? Although employees play a huge role in here as well, it’s the consumers who keep the business going and steady so it is just to give a little something to them to show the company’s appreciation for their support.
And what we mean by a little something will be these unique promotional products. Printed and promotional corporate gifts are still the trend nowadays. Not only does it help in promoting the company’s brand but also help in strengthening the relationship between the company and the consumers.
- Help Promote and Advertise the Company
Although there are several other techniques that companies employ to value their loyal consumers and attract potential customers, the importance of giving away promotional corporate gifts have been discovered and understood by companies along the way. And believe it or not, these promotional products do help in promoting the company’s brand in the process. That’s the first benefit when giving away such item to consumers.
Because these gifts will bear the name of the company, the logo, and the message as well, it will accumulate an amount of exposure that the company needs for advertising effects.
- Create and Strengthen the Consumer’s Awareness of the Company
It’s the same one as the first benefit. There is nothing more important than making people aware that your company does exist and that it sells these products and give services. It can be achieved through advertisements but a simple corporate gift may just do the trick.
- New Customers will be Attracted
Because it’s still a business, promotional corporate gifts do help in attracting the attention of consumers. Take for example, in an event or an exhibition, consumers likely go for companies that give away freebies and they tend to ask more of the products and services.
- Brand Loyalty is Assured
It is very evident that people likes to get free items. Whether it’s something small or big, people don’t mind it as long as it’s free. A consumer who gets free items, uses it, and loves it, they have the tendency of wanting to purchase it for real. These are applicable for leading supermarkets when they wanted to promote a new item.
- Builds and Retains the Company’s Brand
If a consumer is constantly exposed to an item that bears the name of the company and its logo, it reminds them that your company exists and that they can purchase various products. A mug is a mug but if it has the company’s name on it with the slogan, the consumer is reminded every time they see it.
Furthermore, promotional corporate gifts are more than just promotional items. These are the gifts given away to consumers to say a little thank you for their continued patronage.
