You can advertise your business in several ways, but you have to build a reliable and recognizable branding identity at the core of the process. There are many ways to do this from a marketing standpoint, but the most important thing to keep in mind is that the customer is going to be more familiar with your logo and brand the more they see it, but that they are also going to carry connotations about the context of where they saw it. For instance, if your company prides itself on being green and environmental activist, choosing a print flyer that people will likely litter with is a poor choice – lots of people may see the flyer, but they will associate it with litter. One good way to promote your brand is on corporate apparel.
Branded Apparel Can Be Sold
Branded corporate apparel doesn’t only have to be for employees to wear. Depending on your industry, you could also give it away as a promotional product or sell it as merchandise. You’re investing in durable materials and a solid printing process so that the apparel doesn’t wear out or fade too quickly (that would be a bad association to have with your brand).
Branded Apparel Can Create Positive Connotations
When you’re using branded apparel as part of special activities, like community clean-up events, people who see the logo will associate the brand with the positive work being done. Another example is if your employees are working out in the field and provide positive interactions with consumers, the positive feelings will be associated with your brand since the logo is a visible part of the process.
Branded Apparel Improves Perceptions
While it may not make sense from the outside, studies repeatedly show that a person in a uniform – any uniform – is perceived as having more authority and knowledge and being more trustworthy than a person doing the same work while not in uniform. This can work to your advantage, depending on your industry. If your employees need to speak to the public, having them in a uniform makes it easier to communicate with customers. And since that is often the most challenging part of a job, this can also help improve morale and job performance.
