Will your team be outfitted on time?
There is one thing coaches, team parents and administrators dislike – uniform and apparel ordering. No wonder – it’s a time-sensitive, complicated, time consuming and often disorganized task that’s just too difficult for the volunteers.
It’s usually involves spreadsheets, order forms, samples – and that’s just the start.
Then all the orders must be entered in to, you guessed it, a spreadsheet. Then its time to collect the money and work with the apparel supplier to make sure everything will be delivered on time.
Before delivery there will be countless phone calls from team parents about changes to orders, requests for order status updates….you get the picture.
Team uniform ordering online – why not?
Fear. Full stop.
More and more Canadian’s are shopping online than ever before – uniform shopping is no different. Ask yourself if you wouldn’t rather look through your team’s apparel offerings online at your own time and pace as opposed to filling out a form on, the often rushed, registration day?
Providing team parents and supporters the ability to shop and BUY your uniforms and team wear on their terms is sure to boost sales.
Benefits of selling uniforms and teamwear online:
- Buyers can shop on their terms
- The team doesn’t need to carry inventory – reducing overhead and freeing funds for team projects
- The team can introduce new products quickly – find the products that sell so you can raise more funds
