Say “Thank You” with Branded Gifts that Keep on Giving

Entrepreneur, social media expert, and author Gary Vaynerchuk was in Boston this fall sharing ideas around his recent book The Thank You Economy.  Gary’s bottom-line advice? New social media tools are an outstanding way to scale—and profit from— old-fashioned good manners. Listen to your customers, learn what they want and need, deliver in ways tailored t0 their needs, and never, ever forget the follow-through: thank them, either in words, actions, or both.

Sure, we know you keep meaning to thank that new client for his business. Or finally get that employee recognition program up and running. Or let your “always there for you” supplier know how much you appreciate it. With the holiday season upon us, there’s no time like the present to give a present to those who help make your business successful. Send a thoughtfully selected gift featuring your company’s brand, and the recipients won’t be the only ones thanking you. You’ll thank yourself when your new customer becomes your largest account, your hard-working employees break all previous sales records, and your supplier faithfully ships your custom orders on time.

Here are a few branded merchandise ideas to put some holly jolly into everyone’s holiday season:

The contact at your new client loves soccer? “Welcome to the team” soccer balls  for everyone at the company can help keep the new client on your bench. A customer has been doing business with you for 10 years—not your biggest customer, but one of your most loyal.  Travel mugs with “you keep us going!” underneath your company’s logo will keep them coming back for more–maybe a lot more. (This idea would work for a dedicated supplier as well.)
Lay in a supply of picnic bags with your company’s logo on them and award your star employees with a day off and a picnic bag full of goodies.

 Thank you’s like this will help your best workers maintain their appetites for working hard!

The ideas are endless, as are the potential rewards of giving branded thank you gifts. So what are you waiting for? Go say “thank you!”
