In a world that’s becoming increasingly impersonal and isolated, with people content to communicate only via email, text message or social media — and many times hiding behind pseudonyms or misleading profile pictures when they do — there’s one area where real face-to-face interaction still reigns supreme: business!
Spike’s Trophies understands business, because we’ve been in business for 90 years! Although we’ve continued to evolve along with technological advances and now reach customers nationwide via the internet, we still care about good old-fashioned values, like looking people in the eye and talking to them to find out what makes them tick.
Customers appreciate a personal approach. When they’re shopping for goods or services, they don’t want their only option to be dealing with a computer or a robot. Sometimes, it’s actually a lot easier and more pleasant to deal with humans!
That’s why, no matter what kind of business you’re in, the importance of employee identification can’t be overstated. A name badge seems like a small and insignificant detail in the grand scheme of a busy company, but it really can make all the difference. Here are just a few ways that custom engraved name tags from Spike’s can help your business thrive:
Have you ever wandered around a store looking for help and couldn’t discern who actually worked there? What a frustrating waste of time! Compare that experience with how you feel when employees wear name badges. Even if they don’t immediately speak to you, you know their name and their purpose: to help with whatever you need.
Name badges, especially the high-quality variety we offer here at Spike’s, look very official. They command respect. Staff members wearing clear identification on their clothing can be a deterrent to theft or malfeasance. On a somewhat different note, in large office buildings where many different people are coming and going on a daily basis, security can sometimes be difficult to maintain. Requiring all staff to wear name badges leaves no doubt who is authorized to be there and who isn’t.
Not only will a name badge help you make a positive impression on a customer during your first interaction, but that customer will leave with a clear memory of the friendly employee who helped them AND the overall good experience they had with your business. They’ll keep coming back. They’ll tell their friends. Boom! Your brand recognition expands, along with your profit margins!
In summary, a well-designed name badge has more power than you might think, and you can find an unbeatable section of badges here at Spike’s! Browse through our inventory to find the right material and design to suit your needs.
