Social media is a valid part of any new business big or small; it is a proven way to draw customers to your business. A lot of people get a little misguided about Social media; it’s not a place for straight forward sales pitches. You have to warm people up to you, and the value of your business to them.
Customers want to be made to feel like they are getting a deal, sometimes you have to give to get. The old saying “you have to have money to make money”, is hard but true. To win the favor of your social media fans you have to give a little, not so much in a monetary form, but in information.
That information does not have to pertain to your business; it can be funny, about history, a new recipe, or even sporting facts. The main thing is to be human, and not a sales machine that is after their money. My customer base has been for the most part churches, Christian schools, and some small business, so a lot of my posts have a religious undertone; being from the south that makes it a little easier to use religion, guns, and American pride.
So when dealing with your social media account, remember, offer your follower more than a sales pitch.
We just got done printing 500 shirts for Johnny’s Shoe Store, and Wiseman’s Western Wear. Businesses like Johnny’s and Wiseman’s use t-shirts as advertising, and everyone loves a comfortable tee. The folks at Johnny’s and Wiseman’s were awesome to work with.

Its be a busy but great few months here at No7 Designs, several big orders, and the opening of our new e-commerce Store this week, I have not had much time to blog. We at No7 Designs are doing whatever we can to grow our brand, and provide the best quality product that we can. We only have one shirt that is available in our store today, a zombie shirt that I designed for a local gun store, #indianspringarmory.com. The more that we are able to grow, the more that we will add to our store. We are going to try to have a variety of shirts, so we can attract more diverse clients. Stay tuned to out website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds.
We were @ Kingsport Speedway tonight working out the details on shirts for them, I can’t wait to do their project! I have lost interest in racing over the years, but being @ Kingsport Speedway brought back the joy of hearing the sounds of cars flying around the track. In comparison to Bristol it may be smaller but it was awesome hearing that sound and feeling the vibration from the cars racing.
I was granted access to go down into the pits to talk to the drivers, I made some really good contacts, and met some really nice people. Racing has been termed a good ole boys sport, to I see nothing wrong with that. Fast cars and good times are what racing is about in the south, and there is no better way to experience it then @ Kingsport Speedway. So stop by one Friday night and fall in love with a great southern sport, in Kingsport or the local NASCAR home track near you.
Happy New Year from No7designs.com, We are excited about what we are going to be able to do this year. We have got our new 6 color press upgrade installed and ready to create some awesome new shirt designs.
With a 6 color we can print the more complex high end graphic shirts, as we inter this New Year we hope to obtain new high end customers, but we are committed to the basic of customer request. Even though we are looking to expand our client base, we want to help all our customers to be successful in getting their business, church, school, or sports team noticed.
As a screen printer it’s important for our business to satisfy our customers with their orders. If quality is job one, we will make our clients more than just a number, but we will build relationships that will keep them coming back. I have realized that about 90-95% of our business is return business. So for us at No7 Designs getting it right the first time is crucial to retaining our client base.
We are updating our equipment here at No7 Designs, we have ordered our 6 color, 4 station upgrade from Printa Systems. We are excited to get our new equipment and stepping up our game here at No7 Designs; so that we can offer more to our customers.
