How to Add an Extra $80,000 Annually Selling Umbrellas
Every one of you has had that “a-ha” moment when you first realized the value of promotional products, and how it could change and/or further your careers. For one of our customers, she didn’t even know what our industry was all about. She was selling chocolate bar fundraisers to schools, and making a good living doing so. However, all it took was seeing rows upon rows of parents holding umbrellas in the bleachers during a rainy football game at one of her local high school visits, and boom—she had the idea on how to enhance her clients’ brands and grow her business.
After learning the ropes of the industry, she contacted Storm Duds Raingear. They discussed all of the ideas that she had, and together, decided on a Folding and Golf Style Umbrella that came in more than 30 different color combinations so that she could work with all of the schools in her area. (For the record, schools are crazy about their colors.) What was the end result, you ask? $20,000 in brand new business in just one quarter, re-orders continuing to pour in and a successful distributorship born!
In addition to the education market, here are some other industries that umbrellas are a great fit for:
- Outdoor events
- Thank-you gifts
- Trade show giveaways
- Sporting events
- And more
