A Box of Chocolates is A Great Way to Stand Out
Every holiday season business gifts are sent and received. Generally they are appreciated. However, if you really want to stand out from the crowd, you should give business gifts throughout the year. We all get busy with projects and deadlines, and often miss an opportunity to mark some milestone. Celebrating something that may have been mentioned in passing can show your clients, customers and employees that you are really listening and appreciate them. There are many reasons throughout the calendar year to send or give a business gift:
- A deal closing
- Acknowledgement of a referral
- Introduction of a new product or market
- Reaching a business milestone
- A job promotion
- Celebration of life events such as a new baby, a wedding or even birthday
And of course, there is always the simple “thank you for your business” gift.
We are not suggesting extravagant gifts. Many times a small box of chocolates is appropriate and will communicate the value you place on your relationship. A small but unexpected gesture during the year will be appreciated by your client, customer or employee and remembered.
