Behind every successful business is a successful business strategy. The success of a business strategy is determined by the amount of money it brings in to the company, opens newer avenues to expand, and brings in bigger clients ready to put their money and faith in the business. A very easy and effective tool to successful business is marketing, or promotion of the product or services of the company. Promotional products designed by any company and used as giveaways to clients and general public is the most effective way to get noticed.
Alternatively known as promotional gifts, items, or merchandise, these are products specifically designed, ordered and distributed among a company’s existing or potential clientele. These products can be anything- from the most basic tools of everyday office use or home use, or personal products like clothing and accessories, to more sophisticated items that make for corporate gifts.
Occasions to Distribute Promotional Goods:-
o A new business in the locality would like to generate publicity in the local community about the services they have on offer. Of course, almost all new businesses try to attract customers by offering launch discounts and commitment to faster and reliable service. However, what good will the offer do when there are not enough people who know about its existence too?
Promotion does not have to cost much. Promotional pens and mugs are inexpensive gifts that can be distributed freely among people. People find use in pens and mugs on a daily basis; with details of company services and contact numbers, they will remember the giver for more than just the gift.
o Distribution of free, promotional merchandise finds takers in established businesses too. Companies looking to expand their services to new regions sometimes need to advertise their brand. Customer loyalty comes only once customer awareness towards the brand is created. Big companies, too achieve this by sending out promotional goods. Many may organize events for publicity and distribute gifts embossed with the company’s logo as a souvenir.
o Keeping business alive is almost as important as finding new business. Clients who put their money and trust into a business must also be reminded from time to time just how valued they are. Holiday seasons are the most ideal times for sending out a gift suited for that occasion. Everybody is in a festive mood spending time with family and friends- a gift from people who deal with their money is a considered thoughtful by the client and definitely good for the business.
o Official events like conferences, exhibitions and client meetings are other occasions to thank the client for their money and trust in the company. Gifts in this category are called as corporate gifts, and range from simple calculators, calendars to the more expensive electronic gadgets or sporting goods.
Thus, whatever be the occasion, it is never the wrong time to promote business. Gifting in business world is a win-win situation for both the giver and the receiver. Promotion and goodwill- both achieved effectively.
