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.

Did you know 76.4% of people keep their promotional products because they find them useful!

There’s no such thing as too much marketing exposure. Promotional products are the perfect tool for creating repeat exposure and a lasting impression in the minds of your customers and potential future customers.

According to APPA 52% of people do business with a company after receiving a promotional product, and there really is a never ending list of ways you can use promotional products as part of your marketing mix (APPA, n.d.). Whether it’s a Christmas gift, gift with purchase or goody bag giveaway promotional products will help you stand out and create a lasting impact.

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.
