Business Gifting Success: 3 Strategies to Maximize ROI

Business Gifting Success: 3 Strategies to Maximize ROI

Bottom line: business gifts are good business. They improve the loyalty of customers, service level of suppliers and productivity of employees. No matter how big or small your company is, it’s wise to have a realistic plan for business gifting. Executed properly, corporate gift-giving as part of your business strategy has surprising results.  Now that you’ve mastered the ground rules of business gifting, here are three strategies to maximize your ROI through gifts.    1. Segment Gifts to Reflect Relationships.  Create tiers for the value of your business gifts. Not every partner, employee, client, supplier or referral is equal. When you place a higher emphasis on your most valuable relationships, you leave the biggest impression where it matters the most. Use the 80/20 rule. This says that 20% of gifts produce 80% of your ROI. Understand which of your relationships produce the greatest results. This determines how you can drop costs associated with less valuable relationships. Shop by price with GiftTree’s business gift collection and find the perfect gift for every business relationship.   2. Know This: Impression And Timing Are Everything.  Give the perfect gift, on budget, at the right time and your company looks like a million bucks. Give the impression that you spent a high amount when you really came in under budget. Giving at a thoughtful time will always keep your company’s reputation in check. GiftTree has many ways of helping you achieve these goals, starting with presentation. Satin ribbons, personalized plaques, logo branding and keepsake baskets make a grand entrance. Next is quality: our gourmet food and wine goes through lots of taste testing to...
Why We Gift Wednesday (Ice Cream Truck Edition)

Why We Gift Wednesday (Ice Cream Truck Edition)

Welcome to Why We Gift Wednesday! Each week, we celebrate one of the thousands of reasons that we truly love giving. Whether it’s honoring the relationships that we have, feeling grateful for an occasion or a special time of year, or relishing life’s simple joys, Why We Gift Wednesday is all about giving and generosity – the expression of appreciation for life’s many happy moments. Remember the good old days of the ice cream man? You’d hear that tinny, music-box version of “The Entertainer” coming from the truck’s speakers, and suddenly every kid on the block is making a mad dash for their piggy bank. The ice cream man always seemed to remember which treat I liked the best, too – orange sherbet Push-Ups, with the Flintstones printed on the tube! Now that we’re older, the days of rocket pops and fudge bars are behind us. Our palates have evolved – we’ll pass on a grape popsicle, but we’d love a scoop of madagascar vanilla ice cream with a little drizzle of Bourbon Maple Syrup. But this doesn’t mean we can’t expose the young ones to the joys of the ice cream truck. The next time you hear that music blasting around the neighborhood, grab a couple bucks and take the kids! You’ll instill the nostalgia of one of America’s greatest summer pastimes.

Recognize and Reward Employees with Business Gifts

Recognize and Reward Employees with Business Gifts

Business gifts are a great way to boost productivity and morale within your company.  A great gift makes employees feel special and cared for. Employees are motivated to return the kind gesture through their work. Employee business gifts are strategized in four tiers: incentives, rewards, gifts for individuals and teams. Let’s take a more in-depth look at each tier with business gift recommendations to recognize and reward your best employees. Companies with high employee engagement have 50% higher sales. They experience 22% higher productivity, 50% more returning customers. The word “incentives” means different things to different people. In its simplest terms, an incentive is anything designed to drive productivity toward an ultimate goal. Enhance your brand experience by increasing your employee engagement, leading to more customers.   Incentive Business Gifts Corporate incentives and employee recognition gifts create a culture of loyalty, strengthening the bottom line and growing business. Incentive gifts engage your employees! Higher engagement means higher productivity and an enhanced bottom line.     Rewards Make sure that your employees’ hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. Reward them with gifts they’ll truly love! GiftTree’s collection of rewards gifts for employees expresses your sincere appreciation for your employees’ dedication and willingness to lean in to the goals of your company.     Individual Gifts Always follow the golden rule of gifting: the best gifts are the ones that are tailored to the recipient. Consider the employee you are giving a gift to! What are their tastes, their needs and their personality like? When your company gifts a well-thought-out gift, your employee will recognize that they are a valued member of the team.  ...
