And we’ll tell you why… Moreover, we’ll show you how with 11 of the best year end gifts for customers.
Why Send Year End Gifts for Customers
When a simple ‘thank you’ just doesn’t quite cut it, you can express your appreciation through a well-curated gift. And if you’re doing it well, your customers will want to tell their family and friends about it or post it on social media. So, what you’ve actually done other than show gratitude is you’ve marketed your brand further and gained much sought after recognition. Statistically, 90% of businesses use social media to improve their brand image. And if your gift is being highlighted on social media, you’re getting the recognition you need. In addition to this, other reasons to send year end gifts to customers include:
- Gaining referrals: the more your customers speak about their amazing experiences with your brand, the more others will want a piece of the action too. You can gain referrals simply with your corporate gifting.
- Reminding your customers you are available for business: what better way to say Remember Us than with an awesome gift that is actually going to make them remember you. Leveraging the magic of year end gifts for customers is a great way to reach out without being too salesy or promotional.
- Rounding out a year of great customer service with a wonderful experience: you can impactfully end the year with a lovely corporate gift to show your customers they are more than just business to you but a long-term professional relationship.
A customized gift can give your business the competitive edge. If you feel like you want to give your customers a more customized experience, you can tailor a gift basket. The Giftsenda gift builder feature lets you build your own gift by picking items you think will be perfect for your recipient.
How can you send your gifts? Easy! Send them directly using delivery details or to collect delivery details you can send these gifts as a gift link on any messaging platform you like. Your recipient can simply redeem the gift by accessing the link or exchange it for another gift. To round the year out with a bang, you can also create a custom-branded email to creatively send your sentiments to your customers. This will ensure the delivery is just as amazing as the gift itself.
A Guide to Choosing Year End Gifts for Customers
As you are pondering the type of gift your customers would like (because this is typically the most thought about aspect when gifting), don’t forget to think about the type of message you are trying to communicate with your corporate gift. Sincerity is key when trying to sustain and build a business relationship.
Genuinely trying to convey your appreciation is not as hard a task as you may think. Simply convey your well wishes for a great year passed and add in a personalized element if you’d like to go the extra mile.
If sustainability is important to you, be sure to select an item that is either recyclable, reusable, biodegradable, upcycled or all of the above. Moreover, think about functionality. As long as it’s useful, you will have done a good job. If you are finding difficulty selecting the perfect gift, use the Giftsenda gift concierge service that will ensure a smooth gifting process by getting all the assistance you need.
