Tasty Business Gifts they WILL like and remember you for.
Deluxe sweets or candy Business Gifts for a client make up a small slice or your marketing budget, but will play a big role in the whole picture of your relationships with your customers.
Sometimes it's not just what you know that keeps them coming back, but how much they trust and like you. Right?
Think about this. If your realtor, accountant, financial advisor or a sales rep made you feel extra special and took steps to show you that you were a very appreciated customer, wouldn't that make them stand out? How would you feel about your accountant if he/she sent your favorite cookies or gourmet chocolate bar after doing your taxes? You already paid them, they received their part of the deal, but they still took the extra step to show their appreciation for you choosing to business with them and not someone else.
Business gifts are also great for a coworker, employee, business partner or even prospects. They are gifts for all occasions too. Deluxe sweets and candy are sure to please their taste buds so this is also a sure bet to be a hit! No need to worry about taking a risk of them not liking it. Here are some ideas to get your creative juices rolling.
If you wish to give each employee their own separate gifts as opposed to one big one, like a cake, consider these delicious business gifts I hand-picked:
Cookies in Decorative Tins or "Thank You" Gift Boxes: Why just send cookies in a normal box? Dress them up a bit.
Decadent Chocolate Covered Apples: I love the M&M ones! This is a true gourmet gift at a reasonable price. They also have other tasty flavors like Caramel Toffe Chocolate apples or Jumbo Chocolate Dipped Pecan apples. Your employees with enjoy every bite. Check 'em out!
Say "thank you" to your clients with these business gifts below and they won't forget you. Show your clients you care for them and they will prefer to do business with you rather than your competitors.
Happy Birthday Cookie Greeting Card: Everyone gets cards for their birthday, but who gets a personalized, card made out of cookies? Create your own message, choose the cookie flavor (sugar, chocolate chip, M&M and more) and the color of the ribbons. Surprise your most special clients when they least expect it.
Decorative Cookie Jars: An ornament that will sit on their kitchen table to remind them all the time how much you appreciate them. Then send them more cookies later on to put in their jar.
Mrs. Fields Cookies in Decorative "Thank You" Tins: A nice touch. A personal "thank you" containers protecting the delicious treats inside.
Want to leave your prospects with something to remember you buy that they'll enjoy? Imprint your company's logo on these delicious business gifts:
Corporate Logo Gift Baskets: Once you've done your job prospecting, leave your "mark" on some delicious cookies. And make sure you call them back to set up an appointment to sell your product or service!
Mrs. Fields Corporate Logo Cookies: Fill up their tummies with some tasty cookies and leave an impression on their eyes with your company's logo.
Gift Occasions and Homemade Ideas for Business Gifts
"Thank you" gift to prospect that did NOT do business with you.
A chocolate covered apple with chocolate chips on top with a card that says, "Sorry I couldn't help you this time, but I'd sure like to stick (no pun intendend) around a bit to see if we could be at your service in the future.
"Miss you" gift to client who is due to see you for an update on their insurance policy or financial plan.
chocolate covered strawberries to a family and an invitation to stop by your office that says, "I'd sure feel safe knowing all your assets are still "covered" just like these strawberries. Please call me by Tuesday I left some time for us to talk.
A box of frosted Halloween sugar cookies of shapes of ghosts, pumpkins, witches, etc., with a note that says, "It's ok to be scared on Halloween, but please don't be afraid of me I'll protect you. Please call me by Tuesday so we can update your insurance policy to also protect your new boat."
Have fun using your creativity to offer great business gifts to your clients, prospects, coworkers and employees just how important they are to you.
Your clients feel proud of THEIR many "BIG" moments that happen to them and their families. So why not give them the recognition they deserve? Afterall they could have chosen to do business with your competitor, right? As long as you express sincere interest in them (and not faking it either) as you present them business gifts they will be very appreciative and you will DEFINITELY stand out in their minds. And the only way you'll discover these golden nuggets of information is by talking with them on at least a fairly frequent basis.
