Personalization more important than the price tag

 

Branding demands more creativity, innovativeness and more thoughtful ways for creating visibility of the brand. Expressing genuine appreciation to the people you care the most – clients, business contacts and your own employees.

Advertising gifts and premiums i.e products with logo’s can be given for all kinds of different reasons. Whether its winter or monsoon, whether it’s within your office or outside your office, whether it’s for something big or something small, business gifts are a great way to show that you care. It could be used to build a new relationship, to strengthen an existing relationship and importantly promote your BRAND. Here are some common occasions for business branding, along with a few branding ideas.

If you are looking to build a long-term professional relationship with a top executive from another company, with the VP of your parent company or perhaps trying to woo potential acquirers, a proper business gift can certainly go a long way towards helping you generate goodwill.

PPAI Blog

 

For these kinds of gainful relationships to be formed sans appearing too pushy, try to give gifts that are not flashy. Timing of your business gift is very important. Do not give it right before you need to ask for something in return. Instead, give it as a warm gesture on your part with no strings attached. Months or even years later down the line, these gifts are used again and again and the brand continues to get visibility.

The India Art Investment Company at Giftex 2016

Gifting is so much more than just the physical exchange of objects — it is a way to communicate. A gift is not necessarily about the object itself, but more about the emotion and sentiment behind it.

Giving art is one of the most original, thoughtful and fun things you can gift (other than a pet). The sheer understanding that a piece of art is an expression that has so many emotions of not just the artist but also his entire family is so profound. Art is about culture and traditions.  An artist opens a window into a country’s heritage through his artwork. Art speaks to us on an inexplicable and intangible level.

Corporates today are looking for something exclusive when they have to make a statement, and art makes a perfect fit in more than so many ways. Art as a gift offers you the freedom of choosing from so many subjects who are secular and universal and further it can be adapted and commissioned specially for you. Amidst the confluence of mass produced, easily accessible design objects and product lines, art fulfills the craving for being unique and exclusive. Further, the trend towards charity, economic sustainability, inclusion, self- reliance has been gathering pace and touching lives of young, old and corporates. The time has come for rediscovering the art of gifting. It is a great feeling to have contributed to a community of artist who are fighting for their sustenance and keeping their age-old and almost forgotten art forms alive.
