How is Tuff Flags able to be so much less expensive than other flag companies?
It’s not a secret. We are effective for two reasons.
We prioritize the merchandising function of Tuff Flags. Our team of brand experts know the industry. There are members on our staff that have served cities, schools, and business in this market for over 25 years. We have learned the appropriate caliber of products government entities generally require. We have established far reaching relationships across the industry that allow us to drive our costs down without compromising quality. We Never Compromise Quality for extra margin! Our people watch our competitors closely. It is difficult for most competitors to match us given their outdated business models, but when they do, we find a way to do it better.
Tuff Flags is the most efficiently run company in our industry. We don’t use outdated marketing methods such prospecting with catalogs or waiting for a customer to walk through the door. These outdated methods require your price to be higher to support these business models. While we sell flags and textiles, our company is extremely technologically advanced. With over 70 long-term employees focused on finding more pleasing, efficient ways of communicating with you, offering you a better and faster order experience, and squeezing every inefficiency they can find out of our processes, we’re able to offer much better prices than our competitors.Again, not a secret. In today’s market, consumers should demand these “Best Practices” from their suppliers.
