1. Customer Appreciation

“Thank you.” Two simple words that go such a long way.  Saying thanks with a branded gift makes an impact and lets customers know that their business is valued. Plus, experts estimate that acquiring a new customer can be up to 10 times more expensive than keeping a current one.

2. Employee Recognition and Service Awards

Research shows that recognition is the single most influential cause of great work across all generations of U.S. workers. It is also the number one reason employees stay with an organization. A great branded gift can go a long way to show employees that their efforts are appreciated.

3. Safety Awards

Safety is critical and safe work practices should be celebrated. Branded gifts, large or small, are great for recognizing safety milestones like accident-free years and encouraging safe work in the future.

4. A “Use it or Lose it” Budget

Some of your customers will need to use up their 2016 budget dollars to ensure their funds won’t be cut for the following year. Showing them the value and impact of promotional products can encourage them to maximize their marketing budgets as the year draws to a close.

5. Vendor and Supplier Appreciation

Business relationships matter and suppliers are essential to your customers’ success. A branded gift will let this often overlooked group know they are appreciated and looked at as part of the team.

Ultimately, the goal is to choose a piece that people are going to notice – something that establishes or reinforces your customers’ brand presence.
