What are company swags?
Company swags are promotional gifts or products that businesses typically use to promote their brand and create recognition amongst customers, prospective clients, and employees.
What most companies look for with these types of products is to build brand recognition, engagement, get repeat business, and a boost in sales among other advantages. Some of the most common company swags that businesses use are corporate gift boxes full of savory or sweet foods (or both), mugs, notebooks, pens, USB drives, t-shirts, caps, and water bottles.
What’s Their Main Purpose?
Easy peasy, to improve the company’s visibility and people’s perception of it! Of course, the outcome is determined by the branded product and the recipients they’re given to.
When you give company swags to customers you expect repeat business, good referrals, relationship improvements, and loyalty. When you give these types of corporate gifts to employees, you’re probably looking to better their engagement, motivate them, keep them happy with their workplace, and boost their satisfaction.
Apart from keeping your team and clients happy, company swags can also:
- Build brand recognition.
- Strengthen your recipient’s relationship with your company.
- Make you stand out from the crowd.
How can you make them really great?
By carefully choosing items according to what’s going on at the moment between you and your recipients and by making them memorable, thoughtful, and truly valuable to every person that receives them.
Giving whatever comes to mind—like ordinary mugs or pens with your logo—won’t make you stand out from the competition. And this is important: always remember that how it looks outside is just as important as what’s inside! So don’t spare money or interest in the packaging.
Let’s say you want to build brand awareness:
Choose something that vibrates with your brand! If you’re all about sweetness and like to make people feel really good, a French macaron gift box is the way to go. You should also put your logo where it’s visible and doesn’t have a chance to get lost in the sight.
Want to keep your customers loyal?
Go personal! The main message you want to transmit is “thank you for being here!” so make your swags appreciative: find out what your customers really like… is it savory or sweet food? Perhaps a good wine with a customized greeting card? A dazzling French macaron stack? Determine what’s your budget* and decide what are your corporate gifting possibilities depending on the importance of the client.
