Four Reasons Promo Products Brighten The Holidays For Your Customers


promo productsPromo products can bring a little merriment into your customers’ lives—and keep them coming back to your business into the New Year.

How?

Because your customers are just like you. They want the best deal on whatever products or services they buy. Gifting them with custom products is a way to cement their loyalty instead of losing them to a competitor.

Here are four reasons to use promotional products this month:

1. They can inspire fun.

Whether you give your customers a custom golf set or promotional wine accessories, you’re setting the stage for a good time. Want your logo to be a part of their happy memories? Give them a custom gift they’ll reach for time and time again.

 

2. They can tempt the taste buds.

Food is one of the best parts of the holidays, so delight your customers with gourmet custom food gifts. From rich promotional chocolate and decadent custom brownies to savory nuts and crunchy popcorn, food is comforting and it’s appreciated.

 

3. They can bring cheer to the workspace.

The desktop is a coveted spot for promo items, so give customers something colorful and bright that they can use on the job. Imprinted products such as pens, notepads and desk sets are useful and help create a cheerful association to your company.

 

4. They can warm up wintry days.

Jack Frost is no match to cozy custom gifts such as luxurious blankets, warm fleece jackets or trendy beanies. These are gifts your customers can use right away, and they’ll have you to thank for keeping cozy and warm in frosty weather.

 

Promo know-how tip:

Do you know what holiday your customers celebrate? You can send the appropriate gift for the occasion or keep your promo items nonspecific so they’re suitable for any holiday.

Top Five Reasons To Give Corporate Holiday Gifts


corporate holiday gifts

With the holidays fast approaching, ’tis the season to think about corporate holiday gifts. They’re one of the most effective ways to polish your company’s image and earn your customers’ loyalty going into the New Year.

Plus, your clients, associates and business partners are likely expecting at least a little something from you. If they’ve worked with you all year, the gesture of a business holiday gift shows you value the relationship—you’re not just in it for your benefit.

When you give corporate holiday gifts, you …

1. Make your business stand out.

Think your customers won’t take note if you send them a luxurious embroidered blanket or a ribbon-tied box of gourmet brownies? Oh, they’ll notice. And what’s great about business holiday gifts is that it doesn’t matter what the gift is, as long as it’s thoughtfully selected. Whether you give something sparkly or sumptuous, exciting or elegant, your customers won’t forget it.

 

2. Highlight your company’s core values.

What’s at the heart of your company: ingenuity, tradition, forward-thinking, a commitment to quality? Your corporate holiday gifts can express these values in a tangible way. When you give your clients a meaningful, carefully selected gift, it leaves a lasting impression on them and speaks volumes about your business.

 

3. Show your appreciation.

Business holiday gifts aren’t about blasting your brand to recipients—they’re about expressing your gratitude for their business. Your company wouldn’t exist without your customers, so say thanks with personalized gifts. Consider your audience and give them something they’ll be genuinely happy to receive.

 

4. Strengthen your brand.

Business holiday gifts are a win-win: you’re gifting something special to your audience, and you’re getting your name out there, too. Just keep it subtle with your branding so your gift doesn’t seem insincere. Try using a tone-on-tone imprint or color scheme that coordinates with your logo for more understated branding.

 

5. Solidify your business relationships.

Start the New Year off on the right foot with your valued customers by giving them well-chosen corporate holiday gifts. It shows that their business is important to you and that you’re committed to working with them in the coming year. The key is to choose something special—you don’t want to select promotional items you normally give. This is the time of year to wow them.

 

The holidays can be a magical time of year for your marketing and your brand when you give corporate holiday gifts. Whether you aim to impress or you simply want to send season’s greetings, your audience will appreciate the gesture, and you’ll be establishing an emotional bond that will last long into the New Year.

 

Promo know-how tip:

Make your holiday gift budget go further by segmenting your audience into groups and sending gifts based on the level of the business relationship.

The Power of Personalization


One of the biggest benefits of promotional products is the incredible opportunity for personalization. Every marketer wants to be able to fine-tune their message for targeted audiences, and custom logo merchandise lets you do exactly that. A personalized marketing message speaks directly to your client, while “one size fits all” messages are easily ignored.

Personalizing your message starts with product selection, but it doesn’t end there. For example, you can fine-tune your execution and delivery by including your customers’ names directly on the product. Items that are personalized to this extent are unique, memorable, and more likely to be kept and used for a long time.

Mike Linderman, former chairman of the Promotional Products Association International, put it very simply when he said: “People like seeing their own name above all else.”

Personalization is even more important when giving business gifts during the holiday season, a gesture that should never come across as impersonal or forced. Keep this lesson in mind as you shop for holiday business gifts this year!
