It's pretty obvious that "collectibles" are a hot trend these
days. From plush stuffed animals to Christmas ornaments, there is
a bevy of product lines whose customers have mysteriously
transformed into rampaging, fanatical collectors willing to do
anything to get the specific products they need. With the kind of
excitement (and profits!) that collectibles can generate, it's no
wonder that everyone is on the lookout for that next big
Unfortunately, there is no way of telling what the next hot trend
will be. For instance Adidas Yeezy 700 V2 Schoenen Mauve Nederland Heren , no one could have guessed the immense
popularity of the Beanie Babies -- however, the Ty Corporation
did (and still does) a great job of encouraging the collectible
aspect of their product line. We can take some valuable lessons
from Ty, as well as other producers of collectibles, when we
think about marketing our own products.
There is, of course, no way of guaranteeing that your product
line will create a craze of rampant collecting. However Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 V2 Vanta Nederland Heren , there
seems to be a few characteristics that the big collectible lines
have in common. From these, we might be able to give ourselves a
headstart when we start creating product lines and marketing
* Personalize your products. Collectibles need some way for
collectors to distinguish one product from another. Many
collectible lines have individual, personalized names for each
product. Beanie babies, for example, don't just have stuffed
bears, tigers Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zwart Nederland , and rabbits -- They have Valentina the bear,
Blizzard the white tiger, and Nibbley the rabbit.
By personalizing your products, you will make it easier for
collectors to discuss your products. It is also easier for them
to keep track of which of your products they have and which ones
they need to complete their collection,
* Have a good selection of products. In basic terms -- For a
product line to be collectible, there needs to be something there
to collect! If you only sell one item Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Sesame Khaki Nederland , you probably won't have
collectors knocking at your door. If, on the other hand, you have
so many different products that you can't count them all, it
might seem to people that there is no way they could ever get
them all, which would also discourage collecting.
It seems to me you need to walk a fine line here. You need to
have a large selection of products to collect, but limited enough
that the variety doesn't destroy the unique character of your
* Limit the availability of your products. Ty substantially
increased the collectibility of their Beanie Babies when they
instituted their "retirement" policy. After a limited run Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Beluga 2.0 Grijs Nederland ,
certain products were retired, making them harder (and therefore,
more valuable) for collectors to get.
At first glance, this may seem like a bad idea for the
manufacturer. After all, if you aren't selling the particular
model product any more, why does it matter that the value goes
up? Well Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Zwart Reflective Nederland Heren Schoenen , as Ty found out, the retirement system meant that
people were more willing and eager to buy newly released
products, with the understanding that they too would be "retired"
sometime in the future.
Hallmark uses a similar system with their collectible Christmas
ornaments. The individual ornaments are only produced for one
holiday season, making it vital for collectors to buy early
before the chance is gone.
* Don't assume that your products are collectible. This is kind
of counter-intuitive, but one of the surest ways to make sure
that your item is NOT going to be collected is to heavily
advertise it as a "collectible" or call it a "limited edition."
It seems that people want to discover collectibles on their own
rather than be told that they should collect something.
Therefore, it is probably best to just advertise the usual
aspects of your product Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Lundmark Nederland Heren , rather than stress its collectibility.
The important thing to remember about this whole process is that
the whims of the collector are hard to predict. You can't ensure
that your product will start a new craze to rival Pet Rocks
(remember those?), but you CAN strive to make your product line
compatible for collectors. That way, should the lightning strike,
you will be prepared to reap the rewards! Article Tags: Beanie Babies
I was out for a quick afternoon snack and stopped by a local Jack In The Box. I looked over the items and pulled up to the microphone to place my order. I was greeted, ?Welcome to the world's best Jack In The Box. How may I help you??
I laughed at the greeting. Had I somehow stumbled on what was indeed the best Jack In The Box restaurant in the world? Or had I stopped in at a fast-food restaurant, which thought of itself as the embodiment of the world's best Jack In The Box? Or Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Antlia Blauw Nederland Heren , had I (which was most likely) simply chanced upon a very sarcastic employee? Over the microphone and speaker communications system, you would think that sarcasm would be easy to detect, and yet I was coming up with zero indicators. I would have to wait for a face-to-face meeting to decide on the intent of the greeting.
I pulled up to the service window. A friendly face took my money, gave out my order, and wished me a good day. There was no sarcasm. There was only efficiency and a genuine friendliness. He name was Carmen.
As I drove away I promised myself to send an email to corporate head.
