Using Promotional Items With Your Logo at Christmas

Regardless of the size of your business, using promotional items with your logo is an excellent method of marketing through the festive period and beyond. Companies across the world give gifts to customers and clients alike at Christmas time especially so it's a given fact that there are some genuine business rewards for doing so. 

Reasons Why Businesses Gift Their Customers At Christmas

Gift giving is a theme that is commonly associated with Christmas due to the traditional values which are held with Frankincense, Gold, and Myrrh the presents on which the concept of gift giving was built. Since then, people across the world have indulged in buying presents for friends and family, and it is now increasingly common to see businesses purchasing gifts for clients and customers. With recent BPMA research finding that 34% of recipients keep their item for over a year, a successful Christmas giveaway could become a mainstay in your promotional marketing campaign for years to come. 

Branded giveaways are purposefully designed to help enhance the loyalty between a company and its client, and Christmas provides the ideal opportunity to increase this bond. Customers recognise the value that giveaways have, as they offer a personal touch in amongst the business-orientated nature by which companies usually work. This is proving effective, and supported by evidence showing that customers who feel valued are more likely to continue purchasing from a brand. 

Christmas also provides a time for companies to evaluate their effective strategies and policies whilst looking to target potential new customers for the following year, and the use of giveaways which are personalised to your business, could prove advantageous moving into the new year. 

The wide variety of products which can be given at Christmas supports the concept of carefully selecting your giveaway item, with the practicality of the products available proving vital, as a survey found that 59% of products were chosen due to their usefulness; highlighting what makes an effective promotional item.

Whilst smaller-scaled businesses may often choose to purchase executive gifts with products such as tumblers, paperweights, and mirrors being common gifts given by smaller businesses.
