Customers, clients, fans, staff and other supporters .. they are essential to your business, whether you a multinational or a small operation. In fact, without them, a business wouldn't be in business for very long !
While showing appreciation should be a regular event, it is often a neglected aspect of business activity.
So, with a new year underway, why not use Valentine's Day 2015 as the perfect opportunity to start some 'thank you' engagement with those that matter to your business and play a role in its success.
The starting day is really not significant, however, Valentine's Day provides a ready made theme to convey your heart-felt love i.e. in a grateful, never take you for granted, we care about you kind of love.
For cafes, restaurants, theatres/cinemas and retailers, it is easy to see how to incorporate Valentine's Day thank you appreciation gift and message.
- Promotional fudge or coconut ice with a coffee order
- A gift on every cinema seat on Valentine's Day, such as stadium cup
- A lollipop or give-away when a customer comes into your store and orders
... even a hairdresser can have some fun e.g. a branded nail fille with the message 'we love cutting your hair'.
Be creative, whatever your industry, there is a promotional product that can work a treat for you.
A few tips:
- Set appropriate budget to match your business and clientele
- Review promotional gift options.
- Add a note or subtle branding. You can be creative with a catchy tagline, perhaps something that aligns with your industry or something cute, cheeky or corny like 'Just wanted to let you know what you MINTS to me'.
- Make the gesture genuine .. don't make the message a sales pitch.
