Improve the Customer Experience
Many different situations arise that might call for promotional merchandise to be given out. One example is using it as an in-store promotion.

Another great way to offer company swag to customers is by providing a gift basket full of items when they join you as a client. There are countless ways you can work swag into your business plan.
Doing this can boost sales and help get your business name out there as people use their products.
Recognize Your Employees
Employee satisfaction significantly impacts how they perceive their job. And it determines how likely they are to go above and beyond to keep it.
One great way to show employees you appreciate all they do is by offering items like branded t-shirts in a company swag store.
In addition, having a store makes it possible to gift vouchers and let employees have free items. Or, you can have employees purchase items to represent the company they work for which offers another income opportunity.

If they’ve never heard of your business before, seeing something might encourage them to look it up.
Overall, seizing the opportunity to have people showcasing your business information can work out better in the long run than paying for advertisements online.
