There are many different ways that a business owner can promote their businesses; however, many companies struggle to come up with ideas for promotional products that have not been used countless times by other companies and small businesses. While items such as mouse pads, coffee cups, magnets, pens and key chains are popular and inexpensive, they have been used many times by large companies and small businesses. However, few companies have used shirts for promoting their business and attracting new customers.
One of the many benefits for using shirts as promotional material is that they are extremely customizable. A business owner can decide what color scheme they would like to use, what logo or slogan they want to include on the shirt, the font color, size and style. Contact information can be included on a promotional shirt and the business owner can even decide what style or styles they want the shirts to be available in.
Advertising and promotions are extremely simple when a business uses a shirt as their advertising medium. While people may end up throwing things such as coupons away if they do not think the coupon would benefit them, no one will throw away clothing. In a way, the company in question does not have to do anything at all to advertise their business once they have handed out shirts to attract new customers.
A person wearing the company’s shirt is actually doing the advertising and promoting without even realizing what they are doing. When someone wears a particularly eye-catching piece of clothing, other people are likely to remember the colors, patterns and design that they saw. If the logo on the shirt is especially eye-catching, people will begin to associate the company’s name with the services offered– and it is that company that people will contact when they are in need of certain goods or services.
One thing that both large and small businesses will find favorable about promotional t shirts is that they are inexpensive to order in bulk. In addition, a business can choose to give shirts away to repeat customers, or to offer them for sale for a “limited time.” Many customers will purchase anything that catches their eye, especially if the item in question is listed as being a “limited” release. Whether a business chooses to give away or sell their promotional shirts, they can easily and inexpensively place a new order every season; that way, for example, they can offer promotional sweaters or “hoodies” when it is cold and short-sleeved shirts during the spring and summer months.
