With the millions of online businesses out there these days, how can you stand out from the crowd? The answer is simpler than you would expect. Do what so many brick and mortar businesses do. Give your clients something to remember you by. Not just your service, but a tangible thank you or a useful reminder of your existence in the form of a promotional product. Businesses use many online services from hosting to software to e-mail and search engine optimization. They actually use so many online services that one can often forget what they are until they see their monthly Invoices or credit card bill. These companies do not want you to remember them solely for the monthly shelling out of dough that we have been accustomed to paying. Even small gestures to your customer base and potential customers go a long way.
Recently an online tropical fish store included with their shipments a mouse pad that has a coral reef theme along with their logo, phone number and web address. Their average customer spends $100.00+ per transaction and commonly will shop around the internet for their aquarium needs. This promotional product has helped to bring repeat customers back to the site because when their customers sit down at their computer to buy, they are looking at a big advertisement just under their mouse. The next promotional product on the roster is a water filled pen with a plastic tropical fish replica inside and of course the name, toll free number and the web site imprinted on the barrel. Another web services company routinely sends out statements via e-mail along with a customer satisfaction survey on a quarterly basis. By offering a free wall calendar to those who responded to the survey they found that participation had more than doubled. The promotion and response was a hit and now their customers have a useful hanging advertisement in their office or at home that is seen 365 days a year.
Your budget, goals, and business will determine what promotional products will work for you, but whatever you choose it is always a good idea to reach your customers and potential customers with more than just a sales pitch or an invoice. On line advertising has becoming so crowded that it is hard to separate your companies valuable services or products from the next guys ÂSpectacular deal of the centuryÂ. Giving a little gift has proven time and time again to go a long way.
