Are Your Promotional Products Doing Their Job?

Promotional products make the perfect giveaway all year round. Distributing promotional products with your company’s branding is a creative and cost-effective way to increase sales and create brand awareness. Give a logoed item to a happy customer and you increase the chances of that person becoming a brand ambassador. When a customer wears your logoed cap, t-shirt or backpack, they become a walking billboard for your company.

Give a logoed item to a prospective customer and they will likely keep it for several months. Each time they see it, that’s another impression and repetition of your brand’s message. Which company will be top of mind when they are ready to make a purchase? Yours!

But how do you choose the best promotional product for your business?

Think about the recipients and give them an item they will like and use. Targeting office workers? Choose an item they can use at their desks; pens, USB Flash Drives and note pads are all items they will use repeatedly, each time reinforcing your brand message. Targeting outdoors lovers? How about backpacks, water bottles and caps?

The sky’s the limit when it comes to promoting your brand via products and corporate gifts.

At EmbroidMe we have a huge range of products that can be branded, so give the friendly team at your local EmbroidMe store a call. They’ll help you find the perfect solution.

Is Your Team Geared Up for Winter?

Now that daylight savings has come to an end, it means winter is fast approaching. These colder months bring rain, wind, frost and cold temperatures.

Are you keeping your team warm and dry this winter? Now’s the time to start updating your winter wardrobe, don’t wait for winter to set in.

When it comes to winter fashion many people would tell you that the trick to keeping warm is by wearing layers, but that can cause an issue for your company’s branding.

Uniforms provide excellent benefits for your business, however in winter the company logos and brands frequently get hidden behind non-branded jackets. Branded jackets give your team credibility in the same way a branded shirt does, and including a branded jacket in your uniform dress-code means staff and team members will take the brand with them wherever they go this winter.

A good brand uniform reassures customers that the plumber, builder, or any type of tradesman or delivery person that turns up to their house is actually from the company they called. But it’s not limited to that. Sports teams and coaches are easily seen, professionals are identifiable in meetings, event staff and road-workers are visible, salesmen gain credibility, and ultimately everyone is kept warm.

Don’t only provide your staff or team with shirts to promote your brand, invest in jackets to ensure that your brand isn’t hidden.

Using Promotional Products as a Form of Goodwill

52% of people do buisness with a company after receiving a promotional product!

Are you looking to create a lasting impression in the minds of your customers, and potential future customers? It’s time to invest in some promotional products.

Previously we looked at how promotional products serve as a secondary business card. If you leave customers with an item they can use every day that has your branding on it, just think about how many times they will catch a glimpse of your logo.

So, how else can promotional products benefit your business?

Promotional Products and Goodwill

Using promotional products for gifts with purchase, customer Christmas gifts or giveaways provide that extra added value to their buying experience. Many customers will see this as an act of kindness and goodwill. In turn you can create a lasting impression, and create an overall positive image towards your brand (Disrupt Sports, n.d.). According to APPA 84% of survey participants have said that promotional products have created a more favourable impression on their brand (APPA, n.d.).

It’s time to show your appreciation to your customers and start getting those Christmas gifts ready.  EmbroidMe has thousands of promotional products to choose from. No matter what industry you’re in or what your budget is we have something for every situation.

Promotional products are beneficial to businesses in so many ways, so over the next few weeks we’ll be taking a look at some of the top benefits for your business.

Using promotional products as a secondary business card

Business cards are a staple marketing tool right? But, the recipient doesn’t look at these everyday. Generally they will pull out the card only when they need to give you a call. However, with promotional products you can add some extra value to your business cards. Every time you hand out your business card leave them with a branded product too (Matista, 2013). Nearly 50% of recipients use a promotional product daily, which means the user will see your logo repeatedly, hence the product serves as a secondary business card.

Promotional products are the perfect way to show your appreciation to your customers, and it’s time to start ordering those Christmas gifts. No matter what industry you’re in or what your budget is, EmbroidMe has thousands of promotional products for you to choose from.

For a limited time only purchase any Trends Collection drinkware and receive free setup. Terms and conditions apply.

Boost Your Teams Morale With A Corporate Uniform

Is your team lacking morale? It might be time to introduce a corporate uniform. 

Reaching your maximum potential as an organisation is really only possible when you have a cohesive team on board. You need a team that identifies with the same values as the company, as well as working towards shared goals.

If you are finding that your employees are working as individuals, rather than a team it is highly likely that your employees do not feel as though there is a team environment. Therefore your employees lack morale. However, there is an extremely simple way to boost team morale at an internal level, introduce a corporate uniform. While employees are likely to resist the idea of a corporate uniform they are not just beneficial to your company, but also to the employees themselves.

Often employees find it extremely hard to bond and develop positive relationships with their superiors and their colleagues. So introducing a uniform effectively blurs the lines between management and employees. As everyone is wearing the same apparel, employees will start to feel as equals. There will now be a sense of an all for one, one for all working environment making it far easier to form positive relationships. As a result the level of communication between an employee and their superior will often increase.

Secondly, corporate apparel becomes a major part of your corporate identity and culture. Uniforms often serve as a source of pride, people feel proud to represent the team they are a part of. So wearing the company name, logo or tagline on their shirts enables employees to strongly identify with the values held by the company. Ultimately by boosting your teams morale and creating a positive working environment productivity will inrease, employees will now strive to attain their goals.

Is it time to boost your teams morale with a corporate uniform? EmbroidMe has a solution for you. 

EmbroidMe is New Zealand’s largest embroidery franchise, providing custom embroidery, screen printing, and promotional products nationwide. With a range of high quality corporate apparel the team at EmbroidMe will work with you to choose apparel that suits your teams identity and culture.

Give your local EmbroidMe store a call today, and start keeping your logo front and centre every day.
