Tips for the Best Client Gifts Ever!

Brands send gifts to clients, influencers and media outlets all the time, in the hopes of getting valuable, honest word of mouth circulation. You want the gifts to stand out, while also offering a clear look into what the brand and products are all about. When it’s done right, freebies can be like little golden tickets that build lots of awareness for your brand. 

A whopping 88% of people remember brands that sent them promotional gifts. Of course, the key is making sure your brand is remembered in a positive way.

Here are 4 gift-giving tips that can help you catch attention and get people talking about your brand.

Make it personal.

Everyone wants to feel special. The more you can personalize each gift you send, the better the effect will be. In this case, quantity is important, but spending the time to make your recipients feel special goes a long way in earning respect and trust. A hand-written note alongside your gift is a nice touch that really isn’t going out of style anytime soon. The more personal, the better!

Make it about them, not you.

Along the lines of making your gift personal, you should also make sure it makes sense for the person receiving it. Slapping a logo on a mug makes the gift about the brand. Creating a gift your client will actually use and enjoy makes it about them.

Make it look presentable.

In this case, presentation does matter. While you’re deciding what goes inside your gift, make sure the first impression is a good one. Pay attention to the packaging, the colors, the feel, the size…everything that can catch someone’s eye for love at first sight.

Make it useful.

Listen, we’ve all opened up gifts that we never, ever used. Stay away from the little trinkets that can already be found in a cluttered drawer or closet. If your client can actually use your gift, they will think of your brand often, and will be much more likely to share it with others.

Use these 4 tips as a starting point for your next freebies, gifts, or press mailers. For more marketing tips to help your brand stand out and grow awareness, check out our marketing resource library!
