Promotional Marketing through Branded Merchandise

The idea of promoting your business through print is very difficult. This will require a lot of investment money for printing whatever merchandise you want to offer. But one of the best solutions is to sell your product through clothing accessories.

I want to present a few resources for marketing your company with smaller niche products. Selling hats, t-shirts, beanies, or any other similar product can earn you a small amount of money. Not only this, but merchandise also helps to promote your branding when customers wear them out in public. The opportunity for marketing is always strong but takes a solid base of dedicated fans and customers.

CustomInk

I think that CustomInk is a fairly popular name among Internet users. They can print shirts with almost any logo, digitized or otherwise. It will take some processing but their prices are very fair. They can also offer other products such as hats, bags, pens, etc.

Definitely check out their categories to determine if anything would be helpful to your company. Branding is the most important step because you want to print something which people are excited to wear. This will promote a positive attitude towards your company and hopefully sway other interested users.

BlueCotton

Another fantastic online retailer is BlueCotton which specializes in custom t-shirt designs. These guys don’t just print the shirts but can also help with designing logos or illustrations, too.

The online studio editor is another great tool for business owners and newer startups. You do not need to worry about somebody messing up your customization or graphics. The placement is exactly as you need it and there are rules for aligning elements properly. It certainly isn’t for people without time to sit down and really customize something nice.

Additionally BlueCotton offers a wide variety of products which go far beyond regular t-shirts. You may order a collection of hats, sweatshirts, business shirts, and dozens of other printed materials. Their services are fantastic and ever-expanding. Definitely give them a try if you have the interest of promoting your brand with solid products.

CafePress

The website Cafepress is also fairly popular among customizations. Their resources do seem a little more confusing and complicated. But this certainly isn’t without reason. Their products page is also expansive and very similar to the others.

But Cafepress can offer a more detailed solution for your branding. They also sell previously-created print work on their t-shirts and other products. This means you can pickup a nice design without needing to create something beforehand. The choices are all about what you personally need to successfully promote your business among happy customers.

The company runs a series of brands which perform a similar task. Check out some of their related websites if you want to push your marketing into some other avenues.

Closing

Be sure and read up on some of the choices here, and go through ideas on your own time. It takes a keen entrepreneur to know how to market a brand towards a particular audience. By studying the trends of your market it should not require a whole lot of guessing games, either. But I do believe these resources can give your company a leg-up against the competition.
