Who doesn't love swag? Nobody.
But did you know gifting clients or new hires can Promote & Grow your Brand.
Weather you're onboarding a new hire to your team or welcoming a new client; Onboarding Packets (a.k.a. Swag Packs) with your Branded Promotional Items are a great way to build brand loyalty and introduce them to your company culture. A great "Welcome Bundle" should include items that employees/clients will not only love but will use on the daily; your customer and employees can be advocates and promoters of your brand 365/24/7.
A well Branded Promotional Item, is subtle but constant reminder of your Brand Awesomeness.
How should use Swag Packs to Promote & Grow my Brand Loyalty?
Have an Onboarding Plan and project ahead; consider how many new hires or new clients you might expect throughout the year. Order your bundle ahead of time with a couple to spare. A great Onboarding Plan should include your promotional bundle along with a personalized greeting; such as a hand signed greeting card. Determining when the best time to give your bundle is really important, few things to consider:
• If they are a new hire, the first day on the job is best. This will make them feel welcome and give them swag to rep your brand from day one.
• For prospects, delivering right before the time of final decision, can help win them and their business over.
• For new clients, ship them within 1-3 days from their purchase or commitment to your company. This will as arrive a few days after they made their decision, reassuring them they made the right choice with you.
