If you are in direct sales, let me ask you a question. Are you promoting your business enough? Are you taking the extra steps to promote and advertise to help your company grow, especially with customized Tshirts, printed totes or other screen printed items? You might think you are, but there is always more you can do to help your business.
For instance, promotional screen printing would be a great and useful way to advertise your service and reach new people in the community and worldwide as well. Some people do not think about taking the time to plan these kinds of things out where potential customers or even potential future business associates can see the idea in action and make a decision on it being a help to them.
You want to create an eye catching logo and phrase that fully states what you do, i.e., custom shirt printing, and be sure to put your website or a number where they can reach you. There’s nothing more frustrating than seeing something you are interested in and having no clue where to go to find out about it. What do you do when you get your promotional shirt printing mugs and have no idea what to do next? First you want to make a list of how to go about getting them out. Do you drop them off at local businesses? Do you leave them in your front office for people to pick up?
Promotional shirt printing, garment printing and tote printing are just a start to promoting your direct sales business further. There are many things you can do and will want to continue to do. When people see or hear your ad many times yet never go in, that doesn’t mean they will forget about you.
When and if something happens where they need your services, they will remember your promotion and automatically want to try you out. It never hurts to overdo it sometimes because that will get you noticed and help you continue to grow in your business. It will also help you come up with new ways to expand your services and to the areas you provide your services to.
Promotion of your Direct Sales business with any item especially T-shirts is vital to growing your business. There is a message sent when promotional items are given to current and future customers. It can say I am a generous business owner. It can say I am creative and fun and care about you. It can be expensive to always be giving items from your business inventory. Here are some cheap ways to promote you direct sales business with screen printed items.
Create a One Color Simple Design
Come up with a simple design that is reflective of you and your branding. Use your colors, fonts or images that make you unique. Yes, in direct sales you are selling for a wholesaler but your customer is not buying from them but form YOU. Don’t be afraid to show your personality in your design. Our art department can also help you.
