Sending corporate gifts for clients doesn’t just have to be done during the holidays. You can read that again.
We’re stressing this because you should know that sending gifts to your clients only on the holidays will most likely cause them to end up in a dusty cupboard – along with all the other holiday gifts from the companies they do business with.
Holiday gifting is so expected that it’s become quite an obligation and a faux-pas of sorts if they’re not given.
It is important to maintain relationships with your existing clients and show them that you care, and sending custom branded gifts is a great way to do it.
While a holiday gift isn’t a bad idea, if you want to really stand out in your clients mind, you can do so by sending them unexpected gifts throughout the year.
This consistent reminder of your brand could in turn lead to increased sales as your company, products, and services will be fresh on their minds.
We’ve compiled 12 perfect corporate gifts for clients to help keep your company in front of your clients all year.
Pro tip: Personalize your corporate gift to that specific client to highlight your attention to detail and to show that you anticipate their needs.
