Custom bobbleheads dolls, save for the whole head, are supposed to be stationary. It's not like some toy race car wherein speed is supposed to matter. But if you want to succeed in using custom-made figurines, speed does matter. But it's not the speed of the doll itself. It's the speed of the whole process.
You're using them to promote yourself or your business. It goes without saying that every single day matters. You're probably competing with someone and if you and your promotions rest for even just one day, they can overtake you or widen the gap between you. So if you're going to use bobble heads for your promotions, speed matters.
So what exactly are the processes in making them? Here are the basic processes involved and how you can speed it up:
- Generating ideas
This is where you brainstorm for ideas and design. The mistake that some people do is they tend to ask a lot of people for comments or suggestions. This is actually good if you have a lot of time on your hands and you're sure that your idea is safe with them. Besides, ideas may or may not work. It would be very unproductive if you spent a lot of time building on the idea only to see it not happening. The best thing that you can do is to talk to an expert. You can approach them with your idea for the figurine. Since they're experts in this field, they have the knowledge on what works and what doesn't.
This is what will take the longest. This is especially true if you decide to manufacture them yourself. Manufacturing custom-made bobble heads is a very complicated process. So it would be best to leave it to those who have the technology to do it. But sadly, quality is sometimes sacrificed for speed. This is why it's important to partner up with a manufacturer that has the skills and technology to make your dolls quickly and efficiently. Doing so will make sure that the quality is not sacrificed in the process.
- Delivery and distribution
The reliable manufacturers are partnered with the reliable couriers. They will make sure that there won't be any problems with the delivery. When you receive the figurines, it will now be up to you to efficiently and effectively give it out so that it will reach more people at less time. You can do so by joining or organizing events. This will make sure that your bobble head will reach targeted customers.
Speed matters in using custom bobblehead dolls as a promotional tool. But quality matters as well. They should go hand in hand to make sure that you'll reach your target. Work on having quality bobble heads and then work quickly and efficiently. You can do so by partnering up with a reliable manufacturer.
