The power of personalised products

January 26, 2018 by  

Whether you’re ordering products to send to your favourite clients, special Christmas gifts to send to the family or your company is getting ready to exhibit at a show, never underestimate the power of having personalised products. Why?

One key word – ENGAGEMENT.

This covers both business and personal products. After all, engagement is key in keeping a client interested. A client wants to feel like they are your number one contact and personalisation shows that you actually put some thought into your relationship with them. Personalisation equally has the power to turn an average present into something meaningful and cherished forever.

Not convinced? Here are some reasons why personalised products make great presents and corporate incentives.

A Personal Touch – A personalised plaque engraved with their name, a photo on a coaster or an imprinted frame, all are good ways of making a friend or relative feel special. It lets them know that you made this gift just for them, and it’s not just something purchased last minute or in a hurry.

Increase brand recognition – By customising an item that a customer can use in his or her everyday life with your logo, you’re able to keep your business in sight and therefore in mind. No one will have the same – Everyone had been to a party and the birthday boy receives two of the same gift. A personalised gift is a sure-fire way of avoiding anyone having got the same as you.

Mass outreach at a low cost – Budget is often a concern for small businesses and choosing a product which will give you the most “bang for your buck” is important. With a small price tag but large, lasting impact, personalised products are a great way to get value for your investment.

Something to keep – Once the birthday party has ended, or after the recipient has played with the items for a few days, they will likely become another dust collector. Having a personalised gift can make a special present stand out from the rest. As you can see it really is amazing what a little bit of customisation can do to keep a recipient happy.
