In today’s business environment, there is just so much competition, so in order to stand out from your competitors, you need to do something that they are not!
You may have already set out marketing plans and strategies, but CORPORATE and BRANDED GIFTS/PROMOTIONAL ITEMS are a great way to WIN over and impress your current and potential clients. Plus it will give you that “One Up” over the competition that you need to get cut through.
Branded Corporate Gifts and Promotional Products are usually given to new or existing clients on special occasions like on festivities, birthdays, VIP launches, corporate events or even at the successful completion of a business deal. They are a great way to leave a lasting impression on someone, so they will continue to use your services, or start using them.
Here are a few ways Corporate Gifts and Promotional Items can boost your marketing strategy:
- Custom make your own gifts – Work with a Promotional Company and get them to manufacture something UNIQUE to your industry and business, keeping in mind the tastes and preferences of your client. This will allow you to make clever and memorable impression on the client, so your brand is all they think about. This takes up much less time as opposed to putting various marketing strategies into action.
- Buy in volume, so you don’t need to spend a lot of money – This is the old philosophy of “Economies of Scale”. It is so true though, don’t just get 50 items, if you are going to go to all this effort you need to make it worthwhile, so order in the 1000’s or 10,000’s and you will bring your unit cost down dramatically. You need to work smarter and not harder. Then you are prepared for the year for all your upcoming events and functions.
- Increase your Brand Awareness, by not even trying – Since your gifts will bear your firm’s logo or brand name on them, you can be assured that this will help increase your brand’s visibility for a long time. Suppose you are gifting your clients promotional USB, which they can use on a daily basis. This will keep your brand fresh in their memory for as long as they use the gift.
