Custom Branded Apron - the marketing idea to stir up attention


I'm not whipping this up or trying to stir up attention .. okay, maybe I am a little !  

In my opinion, a branded apron is an often overlooked marketing tool to build brand awareness.   Why?

Virtual Event .. let me introduce you to promotional merchandise

So why not maximise your virtual activities. Add some 'merch' to your digital events, so you can still deliver some fun and long lasting physical connection to your brand.
