What's In It for Me?
It does not matter if you're pondering something for your business, your family or simply even what to have for lunch today!
- What do I want?
- What will I get?
- Will this make me happy?
- Will this make me money???
And guess what - this is a GREAT question!
Because we need to find the answer to actually get what we want!
Hungry for a burger? Would you order a chicken salad? NO - DUH!
This applies in your business, too!
You have to know what you want in order to figure out how to get it.
- Financial freedom?
- A great new customer?
- Help when you are trying to do something new?
- Info that will help you NOT make expensive mistakes?
What if ... you were about to run an order at 10 PM at night but you have a question... ARGGGHHHH - I hate that, don't you???
Wouldn't it be awesome if you could chat with other apparel decorators, right then?
What if... you could have someone ELSE searching for products your customers asked about. How much time would you save if you were not looking through gobs of catalogs all the time?
What if... there is a way to set your prices so that you are actually making a profit? And your customers would not fuss about it?!?
All of this (and so much more) exists, is REAL and is available to you - with a membership in the National Network of Embroidery Professionals (NNEP), your professional trade association for embroidery and apparel decoration business owners.
Here is how Mary Mayer of Your Name Here describes the value of NNEP:
'What’s in it for me? That's the question we ask before paying money to join "something." But not always is the answer easy to identify. Why pay $ to join NNEP? It won't increase my bottom line by directly adding revenue. I am on the East coast and they are in Ohio. I've already established my business so I get case pricing with a lot vendors. Is it really worth the cost?
YES. YES. YES!!! But oddly enough, for me...the value isn't measured in $$ (directly). This past year, a referral came via NNEP. It was to embroider on rubber boots! I thought there was no way I could do it, but I called Jennifer and was encouraged to at least try it.
She gave me some pointers on stitching and also some advice on how to handle the business aspect of the project. The satisfaction and sense of accomplishment I felt with this successful and profitable order cannot be measured by dollars alone.
The members-only forum is a PRICELESS resource! Someone posts a problem, and there are usually a wide variety of suggestions. Some answers leave me thinking, "That person has no clue what they are doing.” Other answers leave me thinking, “I have NO CLUE what I'm doing!” It's an opportunity to learn from others, and also to be reminded of my accomplishments.
After eight years of having a brick and mortar, storefront embroidery business, I still think that my NNEP membership is as important to my business, and to me, as it was the first day I opened my shop!"
