The Basics of Corporate Gifting
First things first, what is corporate gifting? Corporate gifting is a practice that has gained much popularity through the years. Where gifting was once a simple “thank you” for select employees or customers, it is now a common practice for professional relationship building and brand awareness. When a company, business professional, or organization gives any type of appreciation gift or gift card to a colleague, prospect, or client that’s known as corporate gifting. Corporate gift ideas can come in many shapes and sizes, from notepads to custom tech accessories.
The Secret to Giving the Best Corporate Gifts
What makes a good corporate gift? If you want your appreciation gifts to end up on peoples’ desks and not in their trash cans, you’ll need to be thoughtful with your gifting. Thoughtful gifts show attention to detail and consideration for the recipient; something personalized, unique, or valuable. Thoughtful custom corporate gifts during the holiday season are statistically proven to increase business. Did you know, according to a corporate gifting study conducted by PPAI, 50.3% of consumers who receive a thoughtful holiday gift are likely to do more business with the company? And 41.6% of consumers who receive a thoughtful holiday gift are likely to leave a positive review for the company? The key here is thoughtfulness. Professionals are flooded with junk emails and gifts. Give them something they’ll be genuinely excited to receive.
