A Lanyard's Layers
There are a lot of sub-elements to look for when evaluating a fast turnaround time. No charge rush orders, American manufacturing, and quick order processing all play a part in getting an order quickly. Though it may seem the least important, don't underestimate the value of the lattermost element. Fields offers a lanyard that can be turned around in four hours, which is far faster than even the standard 24-hour rush.
3. Low Minimums
Not every lanyard order is going to be for Madison Square Garden. For small or mid-sized orders, being able to get lanyards at a low minimum will make closing the sale a bit easier. "The low minimums in our catalog really help when dealing with a small company, school or organization," said Flynn.
4. Quality Samples
Whether it's free spec samples, giant freebie kits filled with generic decorations and blanks, or even high-quality digital sampling, a lanyard supplier with a good sample program can be a great selling aid. Not only will you be able to test things like durability, texture and decoration quality, you'll also be able to show a client what they're getting for their money. (Note: For a free lanyard kit from Fields Manufacturing, call or email the company while referencing "LanyardKit-PromoMarketing.")
5. Available and Knowledgeable Staff
Having all the answers, all the time, just isn't possible, even for the best salesperson. There are going to be times where you need an obscure materials question answered ("Some of my nurses have a rare plastics allergy, what's the exact plastic your lanyards are made from?"), are in a scramble for a case study, need product safety data, or any other number of a billion things you couldn't possibly know. When these kinds of questions pop up, having access to a supplier sales force that is able to provide this information can make all the difference.
