How You Can Sell and Profit From Selling Customized Cases for Smartphones and Tablets
Consider this: The growth of the tablet has been more rapid than that of smartphones. Impressions happen with the blink of an eye. Impressions lead to revenue. How are your clients using their tablet cases to promote their brands? Aside from creating impressions, cases are damage control. According to an IDC report, tablet damage occurs most because of costs, followed by spills. Cases can alleviate or minimize such damages. Damages=costly. Cases=cost effectiveness. Tablet cases are a surefire way of safeguarding important technologies while also providing people—customers—with lasting impressions. What types of industries, though, would use tablets and have a need for cases? Almost all of them.
