A Direct Sell Story
Need: In 2011, long-time client Wildtree, a direct selling company with independent reps spread out all over the country, needed access to promotional products for the reps and for their teammates. The company, however, didn’t want to have to take on the responsibility of selecting and stocking promotional products, and finding funds (and space) for the inventory.
Solution: We created an online store and stocked the merchandise in Nashville (at our cost) for quick shipping convenience. We also bring that stock (and more) to the company conferences/events during the year for sale on the spot directly to the reps. The result? Year-round ordering and fully stocked tables has resulted in almost double the amount of branded merchandise that was being purchased, and thus double the amount of exposure for the brand. The company has grown like fire since that time, and while we can’t take full credit, we feel like we have certainly played a part =) click Here if you’d like to see the site.
Promo For Presbyterians
Need: In 2013, Westminster Presbyterian Church asked us for solutions to help raise awareness for an upcoming mission trip. Sometimes in a larger organization of any type, it can be hard to communicate effectively about upcoming events. Knowing the power of promotional products, we were eager to help.
Solution: We presented 3 product solutions -- a reusable shopper tote, a travel mug, and a double-wall tumbler with straw -- all in the same color. When presented with a logo that was not imprint-friendly, we revised and redesigned the graphic to give it a cleaner, crisper look for each of the products offered, and delivered full color mockups for client approval. The result? A happy client, and better communication throughout the church about the event.
Spirit-Wear Embraces Technology
Need: In 2012, exhausted from the traditional time-consuming methods of booster shops - sending out flyers, collecting order forms and checks, tallying everything up and ordering goods - Scales Elementary School in Brentwood, TN, approached us with their obvious need to make things easier and more efficient.
Solution: We created an online Spirit store for parents and teachers with images of logo’d products, available sizes and colors, pricing, and online checkout with credit cards accepted. The result? Instead of all the headache of collecting order forms and checks, they simply call StitchMark with product suggestions/requests for the site, StitchMark uploads the product images/info, and they open the store for orders. The result? Decreasing headaches plus increasing spirit wear sales equals more school spirit and happier people.
Doctor Creates A Warm Environment
Need: In 2011, a long time client, Otolaryngology Associates of Tennessee, approached us with the idea of offering employees something a little nicer than just the regular old uniform-wear. Something warm that could be worn indoors that still looks professional and upholds the integrity of their firm.
Solution: We presented a Columbia brand microfleece, quarter-zip pullover, with embroidered company logo on the left chest. We delivered full color mockups and touch-n-feel samples of the product both for demonstration and for sizing purposes. The result? Not only did the doctor love them, but he was loved by his employees for his generous gift and has repeated the process each year with us, ordering another gift of some sort. Promotional products can make employees happy while still promoting a professional image for the company.
