New York based, award-winning celebrity and VIP gift bag company, Madison & Mulholland, Inc. launched “Hampton Gift Bags by Reservation Only” program today in New York City. Gift Bag industry expert, Jane Ubell-Meyer (CEO of Madison & Mulholland), created this unique program allowing retailers to connect directly with consumers who receive their products in Madison & Mulholland gift bags. The program allows a consumer to reserve a gift bag online, that is filled with products & services. The consumer is emailed a specific designated location in New York City where they can pick up their gift bag. The initial launch in NYC is limited to five hundred gift bags.
The program was beta tested this summer in the Hamptons and proved to be a stnning success primarily due to word-of-mouth marketing throughout the high-end demographics and the luxury market in the Hamptons as well as their advertising partner, Dan’s Papers.
The program is a financial boost to companies who qualify and sign up for the program. Clients who join the program are encouraged to continue to be pro-active and reach out to their targeted demographics in a personal way. Retail stores experience increased foot-traffic and have experienced a boost in sales from new customers.
Lucille Khornak, leading Portrait Specialist with galleries in Bridgehampton and Southampton, NY participated in the initial launch in the Hamptons. “The Hampton gift bags were a great connector. All summer long, our galleries became a destination, a reason for people to walk in, see what we do and pick up a great gift bag. As a portrait photographer it was great to see all those new faces and it was great for business “.
