How Are You Showing Your Appreciation to the Clients who Stuck Around?
Sep 29, 2020
Showing your appreciation for loyal customers is critical. And with work-from-home friendly products and shipping options, it’s also easier than ever.
2020 has been hard on everybody. Business owners have struggled with cash flow problems, many employees have been laid off or furloughed, and even people who haven’t been directly affected by the pandemic are struggling with insecurity and anxiety over what the future holds.
In times like these, everybody has to make choices. The clients who remained loyal to your business this year didn’t just maintain the status quo—they made an active choice to prioritize their relationship with you and your business during a difficult time.
Now is the time to say thanks.
Why Send Appreciation Gifts
The brands to which people feel most loyal are often the ones to which they feel a personal connection—regardless of whether they represent a mom-and-pop shop or a multinational corporation.
And while you can’t know exactly what is going on with each of your customers, it is safe to assume that the pandemic and economic downturn have hit many of us personally.
For those who are still showing up, a “thank you” is in order. The clients who prioritized you this year are your most reliable and dedicated customers. Protecting those relationships and building goodwill within this client base is one of the most important steps that you can take to elevate the reputation of your business.
Read on for ideas about specific gifts you can send to show your appreciation as well as how we’re making shipping and distribution even easier during COVID-19.
Yes, we know, pens are a little basic.
But we’re not talking about the kind of pen that stops working immediately, then spends four years rolling around under a car-seat. We’re talking about one of those sleek instruments that earns pride of place on the desk. The kind that makes even paying bills just a little bit pleasurable.
We recommend a ball point variety in a black, chrome, or stainless finish.
For Social Butterflies
One of the hardest parts of the pandemic is not getting to interact with the people and places you love.
Consider gifting casual apparel with your logo or a picture something that brings people together at your business (the coffee station? the legendary pizza?). This will remind your customers what is waiting for them when the pandemic ends.
For the active among us, you might consider sending a PPE day pack complete with sunglasses, a water bottle, hand sanitizer, and a reusable mask and gloves. Help your customers get back out there safely!
Fall is traditionally a season of bounty and reflection.
Show thanks for your customers by sending a Thanksgiving-themed gift. We like harvest snacks, personalized calendars, a cozy hat-and-mitten set, or a gratitude journal.
In the time when we reflect on our year and gather our intentions for the future, it’s great to let you most loyal customers know how much they matter to you.
How It Works
With many offices closed, we’re offering ways to make the distribution of promotional products easier.
