  • Reinforce Your Brand at Trade Shows with Customized Promotional Products by EmbroidMe

    West Palm Beach, Fl – March 8, 2012 –. Trade shows are valuable marketing tools for many businesses.  But not maximizing each visual encounter at a trade show is a missed branding opportunity.  Customized promotional products  will provide your company with a consistent visual branding message. Trade shows are a considerable investment in resources - human and financial - and should be planned for accordingly.

    Of course your booth will have an attractive display of your product or visuals of your service, collateral materials with contact information, plenty of qualified staff on site and a ready devised means to track leads. But have you considered the details that will help attendees to remember your company’s name?  Reinforcing your brand with logo placement on embroidered apparel and customized promotional items will do just that.   

    Your staff should be wearing shirts appropriate for your business – polos or oxfords in colors consistent with your logo specifications.  Although less common today, neckties are appropriate in certain industries and allow traditional business attire to contribute to your brand awareness. You will want customized promotional products  that are creative, memorable, trendy, and maybe a bit out of the ordinary so that people will remember you after they leave your booth. These giveaways can also act as a traffic builder for your booth and the trade show. While bags remain one of the most common trade show items, the lengths one can go to are unlimited: customized promotional products with company logos can be found on everyday items like water bottles, golf balls, games and puzzles or unexpected items like Frisbees or bobble-heads!

    “Our staff is trained to help you think like a trade show expert whether this is your first show or you have done more shows than you can count.  We will guide you through the process of choosing customized promotional products for branding and QR code development for lead tracking or as part of your event marketing campaign,” said an Embroidme Representative “

  • Customized Promotional Products by EmbroidMe Can Help Secure New Business

    West Palm Beach, Fl – February 16, 2012 – There are several ways to introduce yourself or your company to prospective customers. Many times the challenge is getting past the gate keeper.  Sometimes all it takes is an imaginative idea.  Customized promotional products from EmbroidMe can be a key component in a marketing campaign to get your foot in the door and get “that” piece of business. 

    A series of inventive mailers sent to the decision maker, in succession, will feed curiosity and keep your company name topical, helping to pave the way to a warm call.  Your mailer can start telling the story with packaging.  Are you using a generic envelope, an imprinted box or a custom designed mailer?  The contents are the meat and potatoes of the campaign.  Consider your message: will you include a series of clear informational pages or will it be a teaser note to be continued in a future mailing?  Choose customized promotional items  that work in harmony with your message. 

    A pot holder speaks to the need of protection required when handling a hot new product.  A ruler provides the means to measure results you can provide. A calculator offers assistance in adding up sales increases.  A pair of binoculars allows you to see new business on the horizon.  Each item features your logo and maybe your message.  Others tell the story by just being included in the mailing.  The items don’t have to be expensive, but have value none-the-less.  They can be something used daily or simply act as a reminder of you and your business.  EmbroidMe offers more than 800,000 customized promotional products  to choose from.  Don’t forget to use packing material or filler to complement your concept and protect your items during shipment.

     “We have the knowledge and experience to help you find the right customized promotional products to turn your ideas into reality while maintaining your budgetary constraints” said an Embroidme Representative.

  • UFG and Franchise Finance Increase Available Franchisee Lending Program to $10 Million

    West Palm Beach, FL (November 15, 2011) – The United Franchise Group (UFG), the global leader for entrepreneurs, today announced that after the recent success of its franchisee lending program with Franchise Finance, it has now been increased from $5 Million to $10 million. The program aims to facilitate growth by lending financial support to new and existing UFG franchisees, while offering exclusive access to development capital. Franchise Finance has established national finance programs with only the top 10% of all franchise concepts. 

    “We are very excited about our continued partnership with Franchise Finance and the increase in available lending capital for our prospective franchisees,” said Ray Titus, CEO of United Franchise Group. “In only three months of working with Franchise Finance, we have received over 60 applications and nearly 40 of them have already been approved, which has allowed our candidates, who would have otherwise had a difficult time securing capital, to launch their own business.” 

    According to a recent study by the International Franchise Association, franchise lending has seen a 40 percent decline, resulting in the loss of nearly 50,000 jobs and more than $5 billion in economic activity. The Franchise Finance lending program was specifically designed to combat this decline and meet the needs of franchisees by specializing in conventional, SBA, and construction loans, as well as multi lines of credit. 

    “Before working with The United Franchise Group and Franchise Finance, I ran into several roadblocks when it came to getting a loan,” said Fred Jacobi, EmbroideMe franchise owner in Boise, Idaho and loan applicant. “As I went through the process they took my hand and guided me the entire way.  I would have never been able to receive the type of loan I did and be able to start my own business if it weren’t for this program.”

    UFG is made up of five industry-leading franchise brands including SIGNARAMA, the world’s largest full-service sign business; EmbroidMe, the world’s largest embroidery franchise; Billboard Connection, a home-based advertising agency; Plan Ahead Events, a home-based event planning business; and TransWorld Business Advisors, a business brokerage and franchise development services firm. In 2010, UFG developed nearly 200 new franchises and projects its growth trend to continue in 2011 with a goal of adding up to 300 new franchise locations around the world.

  • QR Codes Create a Buzz on Customized Promotional Products From EmbroidMe

    WEST PALM BEACH, FL, Nov 03, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Been noticing those funny looking square bar codes popping up everywhere? They are called QR (quick response) codes, and they have opened up a whole new realm of marketing possibilities. It's time to get ahead of the game and apply QR embellishments to customized promotional products

    A QR code is a two-dimensional barcode that can be scanned by a smartphone camera and transfers information. Based on the type of code it is, it might direct the viewer to a website, make a phone call, deliver a vCard or more. Imagine the conversation and fun clients can have discovering what a company's code has to offer.

    To date, QR codes have been spotted on direct mail pieces, movie posters, business cards and in Times Square. EmbroidMe's catalog of customized promotional products offers an incredible variety of products that a code can be applied to, enabling a company to take full advantage of QR codes to market to consumers in a fun and interactive way.

    Shirts, mugs, keychains, bags, nearly the entire line of customized promotional products from EmbroidMe can be given new life with a simple QR code, that will enable companies to engage clients by the nature of the QR code's detail, all while promoting the brand. Imagine a brand's QR code on t-shirts (or parka, in Maine) for a custom promotion. Or, making a bigger impression by printing up large numbers of t-shirts have people wear them to a public event like a ballgame, street fair or campaign stop. For more impact, put different messages on the shirts, so that people will take more scans of more of the codes that can also be turned into a "retweet" so that customers can share in the promotion on Twitter.

    "As more people embrace new technology, fun and innovative ways to incorporate it will be adopted quickly. Companies can leverage this to their advantage by providing the right customized promotional products, at the right time," said an Embroidme Representative.
