Web Store Best Practices
If you want your Web Store to work best, follow these tips!
Limit the number of different colors per item to 3 or less. Too many options can cause a customer to become overwhelmed and leave your Web Store before buying anything at all!
Most Web Stores earn 80% of their sales in the first week of being open. For this reason we suggest an “open time” of your store to be between 1 to 2 weeks.
Too many styles and products can also reduce your total Web Store sales! 3 to 4 styles or products has been the “sweet spot” for most Unions.
Amazing Designs Sell
Amazing Designs sell more. You gain access to our in-house Union artist to help create that design! We recommend contacting us as early as possible, so you have time to help us develop the best design possible!
Social Media Posts & More
We provide you with a social media post in the form of an animated advertisement. We also provide images you can use to email or post on your website. This way you can let all your members know about the limited time Web Store easily.
Announce the Web Store to all your members on the first day the store is open. Most of your orders will be placed within 24 hours of this announcement! Make a “final day” announcement as well so there are no stragglers.
Why Union Gear?
“Unions are about people!”
We’re Passionate About Union Workers.
Union Gear uses UNION labor. We are signatory with IUPAT District Council 91, Local 47. We pay our Union dues, and care about our Union workers. When you work with us, you are supporting real Union workers.
Why we love our Union
Union Gear uses Union labor because we believe in the American worker. We believe in supporting hard working people. We may not always be able to beat the prices of a foreign sweatshop, but you are guaranteed quality work at fair prices.
Even our artists are union members
Union Gear uses Union labor from start to finish from artwork design, logo work, screen printing, and more. Our apparel products are made in the USA by Union manufacturers.
Made in the USA
Even the FABRIC is made in the USA!
“From Dirt to Shirt, our products are made right here on American soil since 1995. This allows us to keep and create jobs for the American people.”
