ABOUT POLICY GENIUS
Life insurance can be a confusing "there’s probably a better deal out there" maze. But with Policygenius, it’s easier than ever to achieve the power trifecta of “healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Policy Genius helps you find the best price while answering all of your questions so you can get peace of mind. As a customer-first company ourselves, we appreciate this team’s ethos and mission!
Props to the ShapeShift and Policy teams for the work they do and how they thoughtfully craft swag as a meaningful part of their brand. Now let’s dig into the swag 😎
🚀 SWAG PROJECT
ShapeShift T-Shirt Giveaway Swag
PURPOSE: Incredibly Soft Giveaway T-Shirts for ShapeShift’s Booth at #ETHDenver!
SWAG SUCCESS INGREDIENTS: Bulk Swag, Brand Awareness, Community Swag, Conference Booth, Social Media Presence
Swag works best with the people who already care about your brand. Case in point: ShapeShift. And with a tight-knit and passionate community like the ones you’ll find in crypto, high quality swag is a must. But more than that, it’s a fun way to spread the word about your brand, especially when you’re a company at the forefront like ShapeShift!
Because large-scale community events like conferences have taken a turn for the virtual, giveaway swag is more powerful than ever. As such, we’re excited to feature this throwback to pre-COVID times with ShapeShift’s custom branded Bella + Canvas tee, featuring their adorable fox mascot!
These specially made shirts were part of ShapeShift’s booth at ETH Denver, the world's largest & most diverse Ethereum #BUIDL event ever produced. And by the looks of things, those shirts ran out pretty fast 😉 What can we say? With such a kickass design on our soft Bella + Canvas tees, it’s no surprise everyone wanted one.
