Think about the customers in your store and the types of products and services you offer. Think “You are a screen printing or a direct-to-garment printing company and T-shirts are your business” or “Because you are a sportswear printer, are jerseys and sports gear your niche?”
Whatever, you have years of expertise in printing, you should add more products to your store and offer more product customization services either in your local shop or an eCommerce store. That is to say, if you can offer more to your customers, you can stay competitive and attract more visitors.
The big reasons why you need to be offering more products:
01. E-commerce doesn’t go anywhere:
While every custom merchandise business has a physical store , it’s no secret that e-commerce is booming and its boom won’t slow down quickly.
The more you can offer your customers online, the more you can retain existing customers and attract new ones. And 2022 will be a very busy year in e-commerce. According to a recent report from Adobe, Americans will spend $ 1 trillion online by 2022. It’s a huge market share worth getting.

02. Customers Want a One-Stop-Shop to Customize, Print & Buy:
How many times have you created a client’s work order, but have you noticed that you also need other printed matter that your store does not provide? They may be able to print the T-shirts, hats, and hoodies they need, but to buy custom printed banners and stickers, you need to go online or on the street.
When you can present your business as a one-stop shop for your customers, you have less chance of them buying their printed matter elsewhere.
03. New Opportunities/Demographics for Your Shop –
Simply put, the more products and services your store can offer to the public, the more you can do business and increase your profits.
Do you have printers? Are those printers sitting idle?

In addition, by offering a new and diverse product group, we are more likely to attract customers from different niches and demographics than before. For example, if you print for team sports but offer products such as key chains, lanyards, and banners, you can get the attention of your corporate customers.
You might think, “I don’t have the budget / overhead to provide more products.” Fortunately, ImprintNext allows you to offer more products and services without the need for additional equipment or internal inventory.
04. Here’s how ImprintNext can help you offer more product:
