You just put on a killer show to a jam packed audience, and by the wild roars and ecstatic faces, you can tell they loved your performance. Years of practice in your garage and unflinching dedication are finally getting mass appreciation from a consistently growing audience. Finally, you can almost taste the sold-out shows, rubbing shoulders with the stars, hitting the charts, and crafting your notoriety in the industry. This is a defining moment as many budding artists loose a grip at this stage and fall back into oblivion for a number of reasons, one of which is a failure to be proactive in their promotional and organizational initiatives.
Time and Tide Wait for None
Fame is fleeting in nature and once you get your time in the spotlight it is important to nurture, grow, and retain the support base. There are a number of strategies that you can use to create a loyal fanbase and reach out to more potential fans. Fans need the ability to identify with your act and feel that they are part of the wider ‘family’. Customized and branded merchandise, such as personalized t-shirt always work like magic.
Make Your Band a “Brand”
Customized T-shirts help you brand your act, create a cultic following, promote your appearances, and turn a profit. Custom design t-shirts are affordable and give you a direct way to connect with your audiences and welcome them in your army of patrons. This, and other factors have increased the demand for promo goods such as customized t-shirts in the music industry, which partially explains the increasing number of custom t-shirt printing companies.
Why Customized Band T-Shirts?
Branding and Profits
When your band is performing live, wearing personalized t-shirts is one of the best ways to create a hype about your band. You must also ensure that such merchandise is available for sale to those in attendance. It is not only a powerful advertising tool, but also a proven technique to establish yourself as a brand and leave a lasting impression on your audiences.
Free Giveaways for Promotions
T-shirts are great promotional giveaway items. You can even use a ‘t-shirt gun’ – a stage prop especially made to fire t-shirts into crowds, mostly used at live performances. Giving away t-shirts at live performances, on the road, radio, or television, or as some form of prize, is a surefire way to endear yourself to fans and market your band as a brand.
