Looking On The Bright Side of Shirts

Marketing Your Business Using Custom Apparel

Many entrepreneurs go big with their marketing ventures. They usually end up paying massive amounts of cash for marketing that isn’t even effective, such as television commercials, magazine ads and the like.

They might actually work in a few circumstances, but smart businessmen know that big isn’t always the key to success. In an ad-soaked media environment, the simplest and most direct efforts often yield the best outcome.

If you went to a mall, for instance, you will notice that many people are wearing big brands on their shirts, like Nike, Benetton, etc. These are brands that you’ve probably seen in movies or music videos and all of that. Truth is, you’ve just been marketed to – repeatedly.

At the end of the day, you and your employees will need to wear clothes, so why not try ordering custom apparel with your business name or logo printed on it? It’s relatively cheap, and if you go to networking events and conferences, that shirt or jacket will help you stand out.

Walking Billboards

In some places, startup entrepreneurs hire people to wear their T-shirts in the venue of a relevant business event, and this effectively and instantly builds a brand army. Organizers of marathon fundraisers distribute branded T-shirts, and runners wear them proudly for free, which means they become walking billboards for such brands. What’s the idea behind all this? Easy. It costs cheap, it is effective, and it builds a team of fans who make themselves brand ambassadors in their communities. It is, indeed, a tiny investment with huge returns.

Creativity Cuts It

People often associate branded clothing with boring corporate polos. You don’t have to stay in that box. Be creative, and most importantly, try to create a conversation with the product. The conversation is your target. If you have a nice custom shirt on with your logo, you might get a comment from someone, and that could be the start.

And by the way, being creative here doesn’t only mean having an aesthetically appealing design on your custom apparel. There are other ways, like hanging your branded jacket on the back of your chair at a restaurant. The possibilities are endless.

Finding Talents

If you ask a few companies today, they’ll tell you that talent recruitment is one of their biggest challenges. On top of marketing your business with custom apparel, you may also get the added benefit of finding new talents.

It’s quite simple. There are plenty of opportunities to market your business, and you don’t need a fortune to make them work for you. So start looking for a company that accepts custom apparel orders. But have the patience to do some research so you end up with a good choice. Remember, your apparel will reflect your brand, and you don’t want to be associated with poor quality.
