2 Introducing…. The entertainment industry is about creativity. It’s about vision, originality, and inspiration. It’s about expression. It’s also a business, a multi-billion dollar industry. In 2004 American consumers spent almost $200,000,000,000 (two hundred billion dollars) on entertainment related goods. As a merchandise/branding company, our goal at Soapbox is to make your business as profitable as possible. What sets Soapbox, LLC apart from other merchandise companies? What sets Soapbox, LLC apart from other merchandise companies? – Full Service: We are truly a full-service company. While other merchandise companies may claim to be full service, most don’t truly offer solutions for all of your merchandise needs. We begin with helping you design a fashionable and profitable product line, and we aren’t done until the goods are in a satisfied customer’s hands, whether that person is shopping at their favorite store in the mall, purchasing from a vending table at a live event, or ordering it from your website. – Branding: Soapbox, LLC is more than a just a screen printer or an e-commerce provider. Soapbox is here to help you build your brand. Just as your music evolves throughout the years, so should your merchandise. An artist, no matter how far they stray from their original genre of music, will still have a distinctive sound associated with their name. Why shouldn’t their merchandise be the same way? Soapbox will work with you to create a merchandise line that will be more than t- shirts. We will help you create and maintain your brand. Through innovative marketing we will help you target specific market segments effectively and reach more people, in more places.

3 Technology The merchandise industry has been running off clipboards and Excel® spreadsheets for far too long. Our in-house technology department has designed software exclusively for Soapbox to help you maximize your profits and manage your merchandise more efficiently. Inventory Management: Using barcode technology, Soapbox has taken the guess- work out of merchandise inventory management. Through a secure, online connection, you will have 24-hour access to not only total inventory, but inventory by location. For example, you will be able to tell how many pieces are in our warehouse marked for e-commerce fulfillment, how many pieces are on Truck A for the show you are playing the day after tomorrow, how many pieces are on Truck B, waiting to be returned from the tour that ended last night, and what you have on-order that has not yet arrived.

Vending: With Soapbox, you will have twenty-four hour access to sales data and inventory management. This means knowing what your hot sellers are and never running out of product. Our engineers are in the process of developing software to project live event sales based on industry trends and artist’s previous sales statistics. This means no more under-ordering, nor will you end up with boxes and boxes of product at the end of a tour.

10 Vending Potential income from on-site sales is huge, but rarely reaches its true potential. Long lines at vending tables, unorganized displays and understaffing are just a few of the frustrations that cause many fans to walk away without making a purchase. At Soapbox, we understand the opportunity, and work hard to make the sale. Whether the event is a hall vend or an artist vend, we will be sure every table is organized and well staffed. We provide experienced, professional crews and custom-made displays to attract customers and efficiently handle sales. Our in-house transportation can handle tours of any size. With our bar-code technology you have real-time access to your inventory twenty-four hours a day and sales reports are available immediately following the event.
