Editor's Picks: Teed Off
We all know it makes good business sense to start selling at least three months in advance. With prospecting, meeting, securing sales, deciding on colors, approving imprints, manufacturing and shipping, you need time and lots of it. So even though it's mid-February, now is the best time to begin your T-shirt selling season.
If that's not enough incentive, there's also this fact: winter sucks. Everyone hates being cold, and chills moods and freezes sales. It's hard enough to break the ice, and once you do, you don't want to spend the time talking about numbers and ROI. You want to talk about the beach, and blue skies, and sunlight beating down on exposed arms, and breezy T-shirts, and before you know it your client's in the mood far summer and in the mood to buy. And wouldn't you know it, you have the perfect T-shirt all lined up.
Here's a sneak peek at a few of the popular T-shirts you'll find in February's STYLE feature. Read the full story when it comes out next week, or head over to PromoMarketing.com's SEARCH now to see all the latest short-sleeve styles.
