Branding is a crucial aspect to almost any business or retail operation. Imagine if no one could easily recognize “Coca Cola” or “McDonalds”. The success of a business hinges on good branding and this branding needs to extend to employees and corporate arenas. Get your staff or consumer base to help with the branding by outfitting them with custom logo- and branded apparel. This is your chance to get the logo out there, and “keep them in stitches“, so to speak.
When you give out logo and branded embroidered clothing, know your audience. You wouldn’t give a conservative golf polo to a group of
emo-hipsters anymore than you would give wool head caps logoed to the CEO or executive board of directors. Logos and brands can be shared, but the clothing that gets the stitches needs to be relevant to the audience you are trying to reach with either your company logo, brand and message. For example, if you have an upcoming shareholder meeting, have a range of sizes of nice polo style shirts embroidered with the company logo on the chest. If you want to reach a younger and more hip crowd, hire someone to conduct a little market research to see what is popular with that demographic and embroider whatever the “trend du jour” happens to be at that time.
It is also important to remember that your logo is only one part of your branding strategy. It is not the end-all be-all for the branding campaign. Incorporate the logo into embroidered clothing as part of the campaign and do not rest on the laurels. According to insider magazine “Branding Strategy Insider,” a logo should serve as a tool for achieving brand recognition when combined with successful social media, TV and print advertising.
As important as it is to get your logo on clothing and apparel, it is important to convince the recipients to wear the clothing and that it is cool to do so. This is where word of mouth and successful marketing comes into play. A great example is in the snow- and skateboard industries. It is a common thing to go to shows, competitions and resorts to give away merchandise with the logos. As the kids and riders see others wearing it, it gains “street” cred and becomes highly sought after. Make people want to wear the embroidered merchandise and the branding is well on its way to success.
Success in branding means added success in selling or marketing the products. Once people are convinced the brand is cool and the clothing gives them street-cred, the battle is won and sales skyrocket. Do it right, make it cool and enjoy the success.
