Benefits of Corporate Gifting
There are three keys to a successful corporate gifting program:
- The gift must be high-quality
- The gift must be personalized
- The gift must be desireable
A corporate chocolate gift from Norman Love Confections checks all three boxes.
The benefits of a corporate gifting program are extensive, including:
Southwest Florida is a strong business-to-business community. However, businesses do not choose to work together – people do. That’s why it is so important to foster personal connections and maintain positive relationships. A corporate gift offers a token of appreciation for customers, clients and prospects.
Employees always appreciate year-end monetary bonuses, but providing something tangible they can feel and touch improves morale. Much like customers and clients, employees want to feel valued and appreciated, too. Plus, satisfied employees are productive employees, and productive employees drive growth for successful businesses.
Emphasize Brand Identity
Companies that produce corporate gifts can incorporate a business’ brand colors, logo and key messaging into packaging, or even the gift itself. Candles, cookie boxes, tumblers, flowerpots, jars of jelly, chocolate boxes and other items can all be branded with a company logo. Keepsakes that last longer, like coffee mugs and paperweights, offer continual branding recognition.
Bulk Buying Power
Businesses can purchase corporate gifts through retail stores or online sites, if inventory is available. However, those avenues don’t necessarily offer bulk discounts when buying dozens, hundreds or even thousands of items. Purchasing greater quantities typically lower the per-item price.
Competition is fierce in every industry, and businesses invest a great deal of time and resources into marketing. Advertising, public relations, social media, digital marketing and email marketing are among the most essential marketing strategies. Corporate gifting, however, isn’t as common, so this token of appreciation is memorable and lasting.
