If you are giving promotional gifts to your clients it is important for you to pick gifts that match the occasion on which they are being given. There are so many different options when it comes to promotional gifts that it can make the situation difficult because it can be hard to know what to give.
Matching the event to the promotional gifts is the best way to get around this.
Where Are You Giving The Gifts
One of the first factors that you should consider is where you will be handing the promotional gifts out. Is it at a convention or trade show? If so, you may want to think about how your company relates to the theme of the convention or theme show. Then give promotional gifts that relate to that link. For example, if you are a roofing company and you are at a home improvement trade show you may be able to give a gift relating to home improvement such as a personalized tool belt or a measuring tape.
What Message Are You Trying To Send
It is better if the promotional gifts you are giving have a message behind them instead of just being something that you give. If you are trying to put out a message about how punctual your company is, you may want to try giving gifts such as time pieces, calendars or other ways that you and your customers can mark the passing of time. If you are a financial company, gifts such as calculators, wallets or banks can also be fantastic ways to link your company to saving money.
Cost Is Important
While it is important to give out quality gifts, the cost that you will incur is important. You don’t want to bankrupt yourself by purchasing very expensive gifts especially if you will be handing them out in large quantities. You should consider going with a smaller gift that is of better quality than with a large item that is cheaply made and which will break shortly after you have handed them out.
Remember To Leave Enough Ordering Time
You want to make sure that you are leaving enough time to order your gifts. The last thing you want is for the gifts that you have ordered to come in after the event that they were ordered for. Remember to factor in enough time to have items engraved or embroidered and to have the items shipped to you. That way you won’t be left hanging.
