With the holiday season here, you are going to have to start thinking of ways to make your company standout from the crowd and make it more memorable. Some businesses send out calendars or desk toys, but they are just as quickly taken and forgotten. How many mouse pads do you really need and good luck getting those to work with iPads? You are going to want to come up with something unique and useful that is going to make your client remember you throughout the upcoming year. One of the more overlooked ideas is an embroidered hat or custom logo shirt for your client to have and wear.
First off, it isn’t a unique idea, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good one. Custom apparel is going to remind your client of you every time that they put it on, but also advertise you. The potential of your customer’s own business connections or friends seeing them wearing your brand might trigger something in them. They might ask about you and your product, or assume that since they are wearing it, you must be good. After all, why would someone wear a hat from a company that they dislike?
As a gift for every customer out there, an embroidered hat might start to get a bit more expensive, but there are tons of apparel products that you can put your logo on. Even just a simple t-shirt or baseball tee can go a long way in thanking the people that have your supported your business in the last year. These are the folks that inevitably pay your own paycheck, so spending just a touch extra on them might be a great idea to continue your rapport. Set it at levels where low return clients are given one item, where your top five major clients get the other.
Next time you are out, check out how many people are wearing company shirts or embroidered hats from companies similar to yours? The chances are that you won’t find many. This means that these shirts will fill a niche and both help your business, and make your clients feel like they are special to you. Making your clients want to keep coming back for more is what is at the heart of business, so treating them to something a little special this holiday season is in your best interests. Whether you go for a hat, a shirt, or some other interesting apparel idea, your clients are going to love it.
