Default How an embroiderer can cope up the Market competition.

Being an embroiderer are you thinking that your customers not satisfied with your services? Or do you think you are unable to match competitorís price? You might be thinking how the hell your competitor can offer this price? Sometimes your heart or mind asks you how I can hold the customers for life time.

If more or less these questions come to your mind then this blog is definitely for you because it will give you the solution for the above questions.

This is Mack writer of this blog I am in the industry from past decades. Being a management student and a tiny part of the industry I have met with many embroiderers I was asked this kind of questions many time, so now start writing these lines because I love to help my fellow industry related people.

1st of all keep this in mind that never try to adopt every step of your follow successful embroidery company because they stand at a different position itís one of the biggest reason of failure and stress as well because sometimes you just need to adapt the situation rather adopt. I will give you a practical example of one of my friend who is now successfully running his embroidery business by just following the same now I will tell you that what he did and then what happened with him.

By seeing the success of a good embroidery company (cant mentioned the name) he hired a Digitizer (which are costly in western countries) he started working with him he was quite happy in the beginning but at the end of month he found that his profit ratio has decreased, he continued the practice for one more month then he talked to me that he was not happy with his business even now I have my in-house digitizing he asked me for the advice as I have little knowledge of accounts and finance. After some calculations I asked him to fire the digitizer and work with a good digitizing company which offer you excellent quality with nominal charges until and donít hire a digitizer unless and until your orders cross the limit of 50/month.

He tried it and took Free trial from different companies for the same design and chose a good one from them, now his profit ratio and no. of orders are increasing every month may be near future he will be able to hire a digitizer (my best wishes are with him).
In my every blog I will try to point out a few minor and measure things for the sake of my fellow Embroiderers.

I don't know. I like and agree with some of what he is posting. I mean yeah... don't try to copy your competition... they are good at what they are good at. YOU (ME, whomever) be good at what you are good at.. which is usually what you LIKE to do.

I also do agree in theory that it is usually better to sub out your digitizing than it is to have ONE in house person. And this goes back to my first point... what they LIKE to do. It makes a difference. There is NO school for what we do... only reinvent the wheel every single digitizer every single day! For example I like creating bordered letters, machinery, tractors, autos, etc...but do not ask me to do any natural fur effects or very small lettering... another digitizer here loves those things so they are very good at those designs. To think that one person can be good at everything?? I dont


So subbing out to qualified digitizers... maybe two or three once you find out which type of design each is better at makes sense to me. Keep an editor in house, sure, someone who can do the simple logos and the lettering drops if you want.

Hi Robert - It is just a well worded, but hidden ad for quality punch, go back and touch the blue underlined words in his post, they all lead to quality punch. Post me back your take on the blue underlined words. It looks he joined just to post an ad.

Yeah, I agree that this is creative advertising... but I also agree with what they wrote... and IF they follow through on the last sentence...meaning they intend to add to discussions on the forum then they would be better than the ones that ONLY ask for work. For me at least.

Not sure about the "Fur" part? I meant like realistic animal hair or features... not my thing. I mean I CAN do it, but my business partner is MUCH MUCH better at it than I am.

Yes somewhat it was posted for advertisement purpose (Apologies if anyone didn't like it) but we are actually looking to share our 10 year experience in the digitizing services.

Which will eventually help newbies or Rookies to troubleshoot the problems which they faces in modern digitizing.

I'm here to just share my experience with all the community.

My company have done more then enough in this field and won more then 47 industry awards and over 5000 customers.

Thanks for your positive feedback.
Also for the negative feedback which will help me to improve in upcoming post.

We will be keep posting good stuff in future and would love to get your feedback.
