Here are Three major ways Blank can help leverage your business.
Increases your brand recognition
Imagine how quickly you associate golden arches with McDonald’s; it’s almost like a gut reaction. And that’s because McDonald’s has spent millions ensuring any gold and red color combo, Ronald McDonald picture, or golden arch, immediately triggers that reaction. They understand the more people who recognize their brand and immediately associate it with their services, the better business is.
With Blank, anyone who has seen your Instagram/FB and tshirt, will be further trained to recognize your brand, while people who haven’t will get a chance to see it in more than one place, online and on clothes. Placing your business’ most popular picture on a tshirt, may not take you to McDonald’s status, but it will definitely help people recognize your brand. The more recognition, the better.
Gather more followers
All it takes is for one person to see your shirt and ask where the picture came from, and BOOM, there you are referring them back to your Instagram or Facebook page. If you use a captivating enough photo, not only should that lead to more than just one person inquiring, but more people actually following your page. Which brings me to the next reason Blank is good for your business.
Get more clicks
Having your website info in your IG bio or FB info, gives people who follow or visit your page, the chance to be directly linked to you. And because social media is only supposed to give enough information to pique interest, not fully divulge it; those people who are visiting and following are more likely to use the link for to get a better understanding of what you offer. Once they are find your site, if it does what it’s supposed to, it should be the last stop in the sales cycle (the most important part of the cycle). Use Blank to help get them there.
So, yes, while this tool will do wonders for egomaniac’s, but will do better utilized as a marketing and branding tool. Take your most captivating image from your IG or FB, and place it on a tshirt to see what such a simple idea can do for your business.
