    Creative marketing goes a long way. If you have a business then you are probably doing SEO, PPC, media buys, and various other advertising to get your phone to ring and visitors to your website.

    What is the IDEAL customer? (the applies to ANY business)


    • one that is pre-sold on the product or service you are offering
    • one that has a personal connection to your product or service

    You will see the highest closing ratio when someone has these 2 qualities...

    How can you get someone to send you these people on a regular basis for $20?

    SIMPLE...

    A t-shit

    Wait, a t-shit?

    Yup, a freaking t-shirt!

    People go to extremes for a t-shit. Want proof? Let's take a look at 3 examples...

    1. Girls Gone Wild

    [​IMG]


    For years girls have been getting naked, showing their tits, and doing anything else asked of them for a t-shirt. Also, I would say they were buying in such large quantities that a GGW t-shirt cost them approx $3 to manufacture. Girls ruining their lives for a $3 t-shirt. Amazing. We loooooove t-shirts, especially FREE ones!

    2. T-shirt Cannons

    [​IMG]



    Go to any major sporting event and there is a good chance that there will be t-shirts wither thrown into the crowd by a promotions team or at-shirt cannon. It usually always results in a scuffle to get the free t-shirt. If the t-shirt happens to be shot into the area of a group of heavy drinkers there likely to be a fight for a silly t-shirt. Do not underestimate the power of a free t-shirt!

    3. Apply for a credit card & get a t-shirt

    [​IMG][​IMG]



    Again, this happens at most sporting events and college campus halls...credit card companies will throw out a low quality, horrible fitting (why are they always XXXXXL? lol) crappy t-shirt...but people line up like sheep wanting one. They fill out credit card offers without even thinking about whether or not they need the credit or whether or not they can afford to have an inquiry hit their score. They don't give a shit because they are about to get a free t-shirt! Makes perfect sense, right?

    Ok, back to the point...

    PEOPLE LOVE FREE TSHIRTS!

    So, get some made...and be creative. Not just your brand and contact info. Think of a catchy slogan.

    If you give someone a free tshirt with your brand on it they will automatically feel obligated to talk about your brand...

    So, where do you find these type of people?

    My favorite place...

    THE GYM

    Why?

    Well, everyone at the gym needs more tshirts...also it is an easy intro...once you make some friends there just toss them one. "Hey man, we had some extras and figured everyone that works out can't ever have enough t-shirts." Find me someone that will turn down a free tshirt? They don't exist.

    Second, these people are dedicated. Think about it - they show up to the gym every day at the same time, regardless of the weather or anything else....I go to the gym every morning at 6am. I see the same people there every single day...and "gym people" are a tight group - once they know about your brand they will spread the word naturally for you.

    Just think...a $20 t-shirt (on average - depends on the quantity and where you order from) can get you a spokesperson for your brand that will mention your brand to friends and family when appropriate. A single tshirt can lead to a "Hey, my friend just opened a new business - I told him to give you guys a call - he was looking for a web designer"

    ...and because they have a personal connection with the person that mentioned your brand they are 99% pre-sold and set on doing business with your brand.

    Tip:

    Design the t-shirt to connect with the group you are giving them to...

    In the example I mentioned giving them to gym friends...here is a quick example of something you could do...

    [​IMG]

    Think my arms are big?
    ...you should see my ROI


    Simple, yet it connects with the person you are giving it to - that little extra effort can result in someone who instantly connects with your brand and becomes one of your best "sales reps" ...all for $20

    PEOPLE LOVE FREE TSHIRTS!

    Very simple, but it works. The leads that come in are warm and ready...

    Usually you will hear: "How much is X?" ...then you go into selling mode

    These leads come to you and say: "I need X, so and so from "_________" gave me your info" - no hard selling needed.

    haha, just an example of relating it to the group you are giving it to - if they connect to it they will push more - plus a catchy line is a good convo starter

    personal income, cars, toys, etc are irrelevant on BHW...all about sparking some ideas in people...

    This method its more likely to work in your country.

    In mine, it wont. People actually care what they wear.

    (not that they have too much money to spend on it, but they just care at least not to wear junk)

    Good share though.

    Thanks

    Junk? lol....we are talking tshirts here...for kicking around...not to wear to the Oscars...this isn't a Gucci shirt...its a simple tshirt...

    Well here in the US people love free tshirts...and that sample above was done in 10 seconds on that site...obviously you would use logos and nice graphic and text...that was just a visual...

    Out of curiosity where are you from?

    I am from Albania, actually form Tropoja :)

    It has to do with culture. In USA they don't really give a damn what they, as long as they are not naked (which still is doubt able, because I have been there), but here they would spend all their money to look somehow trendy.

    Too bad though because I would have made a killing.

    What kind of retards wear that shit around? I'd never wear a t-shirt full of ads here at the campus. Seems quite weird if you're not standing at a booth.

    You're not trying to get them to wear it out to dinner....think about what you use shitty tshirts for...gym, kicking around the house, yard work, etc...

    Why do people fight over shitty tshirts at sporting events? What do girls get naked for tshirts? People eat them up...

    You don't want the to be a mobile billboard for you...you just want them to think of you in certain situaitons.

    This is a brilliantly simple concept. People LOVE tshirts in South Africa. Obviously you don't stick your affiliate links all the way down the back, for the guys who are nitpicking. Creative advertising is the key here.

    Too bad it doesn't work in my place where people DO NOT EVEN READ what is written on their shirt nor READ WHAT IS WRITTEN ON OTHER PEOPLE'S SHIRTS.

    People are missing the point BIG TIME.

    You aren't doing this to get other people to read their shirts. You are giving THEM a shirt...something they connect with. Who cares if they wear it out or jerk off into it. It doesn't matter.

    What you want to happen from this...(here is an example)

    Let's assume you own a web design company...and give a shirt to someone, and we will use the same example in the post...someone at your gym. It doesn't matter if he wipes his ass with it and never wers it out. You want him to connect to your brand. Then, when his friend is talking about needed a website designed for a new landscaping business he is starting that guy will say "Oh, I have someone for you to contact...."

    So, this has nothing to do with them wearing a mobile billboard. This is getting them to spread your brand name.
