Contrast Matters: Your Logo and Identification | The Learning Center by Coller Industries Incorporated

A great business logo should imprint in the minds of your clients, customers or audience using text, icons and graphic elements, such as color or shapes. As author Robin Landa says, “A logo is the single graphic design application that will be a part of every other brand design application [for your business].”

When you look around, you instantly see logos everywhere, from the pen you write with to the car you drive and even letters you receive in the mail. This is because businesses know that as you see these logos, they instantly remind you of their brand, even if you throw them in the trash. You can see the same thing with your logo and identification products.

For many industries, name tags are an essential part of business. While some companies require uniforms, others may not need anything so formal. Name tags are a way to get employees at any business looking similar. They quickly identify employees, volunteers and even products and services rendered.

No matter what type of business you run, name tags are beneficial. The nature of your business doesn’t matter; your customers should be your priority. After all, a happy customer is your greatest asset as a business. So, no matter what you do, you should be working on customer engagement.

Networking, Branding & Marketing Strategies

Networking, Branding & Marketing Strategies

Networking is a supportive system of sharing and exchanging information and services among individuals, groups or institutions that have a mutual interest. Specifically, it is the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business. Networking extends beyond any meeting or event to actively develop business and personal relationships.

Especially when it comes to a business network, making sure that you build these lines of communication is crucial. Without them, there is no network. These lines, commonly referred to as a relationship or communication, are the most important thing to maintain a network. If you don’t have a good set of contacts, a brand that can support itself, or strong marketing strategies, a network will fail.

Conferences are more than an assembly of people for a cause or common interest. Each event is a place to convene and plan for upcoming projects, workshops and so much more.

While most events occur on a face-to-face basis, other event forms can include video conferences and telephone meetings.

Learning Center: Retail and Sales

Center Your efforts on Retail and Sales | The Learning Center by Coller Industries Incorporated

Unfortunately, we have all seen when a customer walks into a store and doesn’t get the attention they were looking for, so they leave. They were expecting something that the store offers but didn’t feel that they got the right help while looking for the desired product. While it may seem like a small thing, a simple way to avoid your customers feeling this way is to provide name tags for your employees. These tags can immediately remove any barriers or concerns a customer may have. They allow customers to ask questions and express these concerns to those who care. In turn, this establishes trust and keeps people coming back to your store.

So, no matter your location or business, name tags are here to help. From security to branding, retail establishments have almost become synonymous with name tag use. When a retail employee wears a name tag with a logo on it, the tag becomes a form of advertising. It can then reinforce the company’s brand in the minds of their customers. These name tags have so much power, but you must first give it to them.

Wearing and Using Identification

Name tags may seem like a trivial thing, but clever use of this tool needs to be part of your marketing. Wearing and using identification provides a means to offer your customers exceptional service. Employees who wear name badges signal a sense of responsibility and become approachable at any time. As such, identification is an important part of any corporate identity.

Often worn in work environments, name tags are a required uniform piece. They are used by many companies, such as restaurants and retailers, so that customers can identify an employee quickly by name. Others use name tags in professional settings where uniforms are not typically worn. These include universities, banks and other companies.
