Go Green, Gift Green

Words such as ‘eco – friendly’, ‘environmentally responsible’ and ‘sustainable’ are on everyone’s lips these days. With increased awareness about environmental issues among customers, businesses around the world are taking notice of this phenomenon. This has resulted in increasing demands for eco-friendlyproducts.

Brands Go Green!

Constantly pushing the boundaries of creating a positive brand image requires a multi-dimensional approach to branding. If the brand stands for an idea or an initiative, marketers see to it that their stance translates well into their brand identity. This makes branding and marketing a challenging business. Gifting is a unique solution to spearhead this process.

When done right, gifting can help reflect the image of the company. Hence, it becomes more important for corporates to look into the kind of gifts that are handed over to their potential clients and employees. As brands take efforts to become a recognized andresponsible business that is invested in preserving the environment, the gifts they distribute to their clients and stakeholdersare becoming more aligned with the sentiment of going green. This has deemed ‘Green Gifting’ as one of the many effective ways to build a good reputation in the corporate social responsibility sphere.

According to a Capstrat Public Policy survey on sustainability, 56% of consumers would opt to pay more for a product that’s environmentally friendly compared to a non-green product.

Why Green Gifting?

With growing concerns for our planet’s well-being, eco-friendly innovations are popping up in every business sector and industry. Companies are adopting sustainable practices, while consumers are becoming eco-savvy and willing to invest in eco-friendly products. And incorporating this idea into gifting, makes perfect sense.

Responsible employees and corporates equally love and admire gifting products which are made using recycled products or bio-degradable products which decompose easily and don’t end up in landfills.

Green gifts such asjute bags, plants to cutlery, bio-degradable pensand food packaging products like plates, bowls, trays, spoons, etc. are being accepted and appreciated all over the world. With the wide use of gifts that use solar units that require low maintenance,brands can add to the efforts of reducing our carbon footprint, all the while satisfying the purpose of being a valuable gift.

Corporate Gifting #Giftex2017

5 Reasons why you should invest in Corporate Gifting

The struggle to garner more market share, while extracting maximum possible revenue out of existing customer base, has spawned a variety of marketing strategies. From old conventional tactics like printing ads in the newspapers to the now digitally oriented-mailers, no stone has been left unturned to push products and increase sales. In a bid to play catch-up with the latest trends, the world has forgotten that sometimes the most humble ways are the most effective ones.

A few marketing gurus might argue that corporate gifting is not a legitimate marketing strategy. But don’t let this misconception influence your marketing decisions. Before you write off corporate gifting as a fad that results in no meaningful returns, hear us out.

Here are 5 reasons why you should incorporate corporate gifting in your marketing strategy:

  1. Better brand recall

Consider this – the ads that pop up on social media and elsewhere on the internet stay on the screen for only a matter of seconds before the user scrolls past them. In fact, many users report such ads as it ruins their online experience.Compare this to a thoughtful corporate gift that stays with the person much longer.

According to a study by Promotional Products Association International (PPAI), 90.4% people still  possess a promotional product that they received in the last 24 months; and around 58% people keep it for around 4 years.

  1. Your alternative business card

In the field of business, you tend to interact with a lot of vendors. How do you make sure that your business card makes your brand memorable?

It’s simple, really. Stop giving out business card to potential customers. A corporate gift that innovatively speaks about your business will create a better impact than a business card ever will.

  1. Not too invasive

“Try to design your product around the customer’s needs”. Every marketer strives to live by this golden rule. But not when it comes to advertising. Sadly, marketers fail to realise that no customer wants to receive their mails and certainly nobody wants to see invasivepop-up adsruin their online experience.

Gifting is an ideal solution that doesn’t need invade their privacy. It could be something as simple as a coffee mug, or as exciting as a pair of high-end earphones/Bluetooth speakers.

 

  1. Less wastage

While terms like ‘reach’ and ‘engagement’ quantify the people that consume your content, there is no certain way of knowing whether your marketing mix is falling on deaf ears. With corporate gifting, you have control on exactly who receives and consumes your content and minimise wasting your resources on irrelevant audience groups.

  1. Cost effective

With the advent of mass customization and mass production, a lot of gifts can be produced for large audiences at cheaper rates. In fact, the production costs can be brought down, as compared to the cost-per-impression of several other mediums.
