Sick of political TV ads? Try a presidential campaign button – Des Moines Register
The Des Moines Register wrote a brief article about a retired man selling campaign buttons in Iowa leading up to the Iowa caucus. After Iowa, the man planned to head to New Hampshire.
He was selling buttons for $5 each or three for $10. Button Biz is located in Nebraska, but you can see Iowa from our office. Although I didn’t make it to any Iowa caucus rallies this year, I have been to them in the past. Four years ago, I happened to be in Denver at the same time as the Democratic National Convention.
It was amazing to see how many button vendors were in Denver. The $5 price is very common for people selling buttons. And I’ve also noticed most vendors sell buttons that are 2.25″ or larger. The 3″ and 3.5″ seem to be very popular as well. The reason there were so many vendors was because people were buying a lot of buttons. It was very common to see people walking around Denver with 5 or more buttons on there shirt.
Buttons that sell for $5 are extremely profitable. If you take a look at the price per button, these vendors could potentially make $4.75 profit on a $5 button.
It may be a little too late to profit from this year’s Republican presidential primary, but there’s always the general election and the conventions.
