As you prepare your business’s holiday initiatives, here are five things to start thinking about now.

Holiday Promotional Items1. Order Your Promotional Gifts

Promotional gifts are a holiday season staple. Personalized, branded gifts are a great way to show your appreciation for your top customers or clients. In particular, investing in premium gifts is a guaranteed way to stand out. Every time your client wears a piece of high-end branded apparel or uses a gifted tech or cookware item, your company will be top of mind. The huge variety of promotional gifts available means that you can choose items to fit any budget, in any shape or size. But whatever type of gift you decide to go with, be sure to order sooner than later.

Order your Promotional Products today! Due to COVID-19 related supply chain disruptions, manufacturers are experiencing challenges with reduced inventory. Production on personalized items is expected to take longer this year. Plan ahead now and make sure you order all promotional items well in advance, so your Salt Lake customers don’t miss out on free gifts and your business doesn’t miss out on brand awareness.

2. Don’t Forget About Employee Appreciation

The past two years have demanded a lot of flexibility and perseverance from every member of your team. This holiday season, it’s more important than ever before to show your appreciation for your staff and thank them for all they’ve done for your Salt Lake business. Many of the same gifts you use to show appreciation to top clients are also perfect for your staff members. You might even choose additional customizations on these items, embroidering names into apparel or personalizing things like coffee and tea sets. One option is an agBox full of branded gifts. This unexpected gesture will help build pride in your brand and show your employees how much you value them. Watch an agBox video.

3. Send Out Your Season’s Greetings

Exchanging holiday cards is another beloved holiday tradition that can also help to strengthen your relationship with clients. By sending out physical holiday cards, you can help spread some festive cheer while connecting with your customers on a personal level. Holiday Greeting CardTo increase the impact of your holiday cards, have a design and print partner like AlphaGraphics South Salt Lake create a custom design for your cards. You can even get creative with die cutting, embossing, foil stamping, and folding to create a stand-out card that will earn a special place on the mantel! Including a hand-written note or enclosing a photo of your team in the card will help reinforce your relationship — especially if your Salt Lake business has transitioned to doing more business remotely.

4. Prepare for Holiday Promotions

Many consumers expect to see sales and special offers around the holidays, so running a promotion is a great way to drive more sales. Prepare for these promotions well in advance with marketing materials. It’s smart to use a blend of digital materials, like email blasts and social media advertising, as well as physical materials, like postcards, mailers, and flyers. Creative signage for both inside and outside your storefront will capture the attention of passersby and help you capitalize on spontaneous purchases.
