Five common mistakes when planning your event and purchasing Swag that can throw a wrench in your event and how to avoid them.
5 Common mistakes
1.You order and there is a mistake with your order
How many times have you encountered mistakes when buying swag for your event and don't have time to "fix" the mistake ?Even once is more than enough. According to Murphys Law-If anything can go wrong, it probably will!
Allow time for mistakes. Always order swag in time to arrive at least one week before your event This will allow you to examine the product and make sure all is correct and accounted for.. Make a claim immediately and we will do everything in our power to make it right!
Which brings me to the next common mistake.
2. Buying anything inexpensive and on a whim because you are out of time and don't know where to turn!
Research your vendors and build a relationship with them. Let them help you to make your event and you look great!
Do your homework. Ask questions, ask for referrals Look for Customer service and value added services..they are worth their weight in gold.
