As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, we can’t help but start to plan for the upcoming holidays. It’s an exciting time of year for us Canadians, not too cold (yet) and the whispers of warm cookies, presents, and decorations begin.
It’s also quite stressful. Parents need to start their lists, employers need to ensure everything will get done before time off and store shutdowns occur. They also need to think about holiday parties, office decorations, and the big question of whether or not to give out corporate gifts. If you’re an employer and you're in this boat, fear not! We’re going to walk you through the fundamentals of corporate gifting!
What Is Corporate Gifting?
Corporate gifting is when a business sends a gift out on their behalf. Common reasons to give these types of gifts include: birthdays, holidays, personal or professional achievements, appreciation gifts (such as a “thank-you for becoming a client” or “congrats and thank you for being with us for X amount of years!”).
And what’s great is that corporate gifts can work for the hybrid model as well. Most companies will allow you to send the gifts to multiple locations, meaning that they can also be used to help your team stay connected and feel valued—no matter where they are!
Who Is Corporate Gifting For?
A corporate gift can be for employees, clients, prospects, vendors, you name it!
Why Should My Business Participate in Corporate Gifting?
Corporate gifts do not have to be elaborate or even expensive, it’s the thought that counts. And the thought does go a long way…
Let Your Team Know You Care
Your team works hard for your company and their jobs are a big part of their lives. While they do get a paycheck, going the extra mile can mean a lot and even encourage loyalty. It doesn’t take much time or effort on behalf of the business but it’s well worth it when it comes to the wellbeing of your team.
A happy work culture is better for you, for your clients, and for your employees!
Help Nudge a Prospect in the Right Direction
Let’s say you’ve just had a great meeting with a prospective client and then followed it up with a corporate gift to say thank you and let them know that you appreciate their time. You can bet that is not only going to sit well with them, but it’ll also help keep your company top of mind.
Build a Stronger Relationship With Your Clients
By sending a corporate gift to a client, you’re showing them that they are more than just a number to you. Sure, they get great services or quality products from you, and pay you in return, but that’s not really where you want it to end, right?
We all know the 80/20 rule. 80% of your business comes from 20% of your customers. So why not make the 20% feel like VIPs? This will not only encourage repeat business, but it’ll likely lead to strong relationships, great testimonials and more clients!
