The reasons for the above are to make a HR Manager’s life hassle free. Trying to figure out what to give your employees is confusing. This option is to make your team a part of the selection process.
Distributing company caps
Distributing caps from a company store will guarantee each branded cap will be worn and will get at least 3,300 views in its lifetime. This is an inexpensive way to show off the company’s brand. Your cost is less than 3 cents per impression
Custom decorated apparel will get even more looks. A full back tee shirt is an inexpensive way to get your message out. In a year a tee shirt will capture at least 4,000 eyeballs. At $10.00 per shirt it will cost less than 2 cents for each eyeball.
If the company decides to allow employees to purchase company merchandise the collection process is a slam dunk. Employees will be able to order and pay for all merchandise on line. Another option is payroll deductions to cover the cost.
The best benefit of a company store is getting the brand out and making everyone a winner. Employees get branded merchandise and the company gets brand recognition.
Northwest Custom Apparel has been doing company stores and have a good track record putting them together. It has proven to be a moral builder and a great marketing tool.
Collecting individual checks (which at times bounce), collecting cash (gets misplaced) and trying to collect from members of the group who won’t pony up their money. This is the biggest problem when selling to a group of individuals who want you to do all the work and accept all the responsibility for handling the money.
Also, the group might want their cut of the proceeds after you did all the work. Group sales are a thankless job.
Now there is a solution to this problem.
It’s called on line selling via a custom website. This simple system takes all the problems of selling to groups. These custom websites are often referred to as “Flash Stores.”
A flash store manages the whole project for all individual sales made to group members. No more problems with collection, sizing, and profit sharing. We live in the Seattle Tacoma part of the United States and it seems these tech savy customers want everything to be easy.
A few benefits of a Flash Store will include:
Flash Store design is free
Individuals can control their own personal order.
Funds are collected on line with a credit card
After the store closes the profits are sent to the group.
Easiest fund raiser known
Product can be shipped to buyer
Free delivery to one location
Store is open for a limited time. This pushes members to make a decision.
You can offer brand merchandise (Nike, Cutter & Buck, Eddie Bauer, Ogio)
The real benefit is that the whole store is very simple to set up and manage. The product is selected by the group and they get to order what they want. Because there are no upfront set up charges anyone can set up a store at no money down. Northwest Custom Apparel is the flash store expert.
Groups that have no money can have a serendipitous kick start.
This can also be done by companies who want to give their employees a logo wearable. It is a lot easier because the employees order what they want and the company picks up the tab.
