A Reward in the Bag

Customers who bring their own bags for shopping usually have a little more spring in their step because they know they're doing their bit to minimize consumption.

If you're a business owner. How can you make your business a more attractive & rewarding experience for your customers?

Give those customers that bring their own bags something to show for it - maybe a discount off their purchase or maybe another Apple or Orange in their bag for the journey?

There is no hiding the fact that multi-use reusable bags are more expensive than single-use plastic.

However, the additional cost of the bag could be off-set many times over by the repeat business your customers will give you.

What are your strategies to attract & keep customers?

It's Your Business

No one knows your business better that you do.

Your business is an individual living thing; your breathe life into it everyday. It is as individual as you are.

So... if businesses are individual, why do suppliers try to feed the same products to one-and-all?

If you're an individual, you should get something specifically made for your needs?

Talk to Bag People to see what can be done to make sure your business stands out.

You don't need to take the same as everyone else just becuase that's what the supplier has in their warehouse or perhaps it's the line that the sales rep makes the most commission on.

Get what YOU need & get it from Bag People.

Find me a Rock - Get Your Brief Right

Our post from last month (11th April - Get the most from your Bags) has created a lot of interest.

Some of our customers are even asking "what does it means?"

Put simply, it means that you need to make sure you've got all your information & data in place before going out & getting anything done.

We have a phrase in our office. "This one's playing 'Find me a Rock'.", it's a term we use when customers might not have completely formulated their thoughts & ideas.

Basically - they've got no idea.

Just take a moment to think about a rock. Have you considered the almost infinite variety of rocks... the mind boggles.

- size (dimensions)
- shape
- colour
- texture
- weight
- composition - what's it made from?

The amount of possible combinations is astounding & would most certainly be over-whelming if you tried to compare every-single-possible-option.

This is where is pays to narrow your focus. Have a ready through our previous post & then have a think about which way you'd like to go with your bags.

We can certainly help with the process & will most likely have a few ideas you may not have thought of.

After all we are Your Promotional Bag Specialists.
