The Holiday Season Is Promo Gift Season!

Posted in Promotional Products on 04.12.15 by John Meloche

personal-breath-logo-1024x1269We’re officially three weeks away from Christmas! On behalf of the entire staff, here at Synergy Marketing, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you the happiest of holidays. True, we’ve extended this wish in previous blogs – and we’re likely to do it again – but we’re truly in the holiday spirit, if you can’t tell already. At Synergy Marketing, the season of giving is all year round. But, we especially like this time of year!

If you haven’t yet gotten in on the action of giving, there’s no better time than now to start. You see, our promotional gifts are very often used by business owners to extend well-wishes to customers and employees alike. What makes our promo gifts so valuable is that they do a lot more than the average Christmas card. Promo gifts are useful and handy items that can be used on a daily basis.

Just take, water bottles, for example. Now, what do you think would have a better impression on your customers as they visit your store over the next three weeks – a business card or a water bottle? People drink water every day, many of them work out and need to be hydrated and most of us simply need to carry something to drink with us wherever we go. The bottom line is that water bottles are used a whole lot more often than business cards are. You get the picture.

During the holiday season, Synergy Marketing especially likes to promote its holiday items. Our Christmas card and CD combo is especially popular. It’s not the “average” gift that we made mention of earlier. With the CD containing 12 memorable holiday classics, this gift is one that can be used year in and year out. It’s hard to come up with a longer lasting advertising mechanism!

Of course, not all of your gifts need to be holiday-themed, just because we are smack-dab in the middle of the holiday season. Our collection of key chains work amazingly well all year round. Another perfect example of the “every day gift”, the key chain is something that almost everyone you know needs. When you give out a key chain with your company name and logo on it, you’re pretty much guaranteeing its recipient of a daily reminder of where to shop.

How about earmuffs? Not only are they great holiday gifts, but they are great gifts all winter long. Not long ago, we blogged about our great Wrap Around Earmuffs, and explained that gifts that people can wear are among the most beneficial for your business. Essentially, your gift becomes part of a walking billboard. Wherever your recipient goes wearing your earmuffs this winter, your company will be advertised!

We should take this time to point out that you should certainly place an order for the promotional gifts of your choice right away. Synergy Marketing will be open each business day of the week straight through until the 22nd of December, which is scheduled to be our last full working day of the year. Our offices are scheduled to be closed for the holidays until the new year, with Monday, January 4th as our first full day of operations in 2016.

Give us a call at 1-877-748-9884 to discuss ordering the promotional gift that you think your customers and employees would most enjoy. As we’ve experienced for many years, the holiday season is the perfect time to impress those who matter most to your business, so that it flourishes well into the new year!

3 Ways To Please Everybody With Your Decorations

Posted in Synergy Suggestions on 17.11.15 by John Meloche

Christmas Ornament In Front Of Businessman Working At DeskIn yesterday’s blog, we touched upon the subject of office decorations during the holiday season. It’s a good idea, no doubt. Boosting employee morale can easily be done when your staff members are able to come to work each day to a vibrantly-decorated place of business. However, as we pointed out yesterday, it’s important to be mindful of different traditions. It’s also important to ensure the safety of your staff when decorating your office.

On Care2.com, Linda Merrill writes that holiday decorations in the office can cause problems. She cites a 2006 International Facilities Management Association (IFMA) survey of employees that found that “25 percent reported problems related to the decorations and 85 percent of the complaints led to policy changes.” So how can you decorate your office space in a way that pleases everybody?

Here are three ways:

1. Allow employees freedom with their personal spaces. This may not apply to all businesses, but for those where employees have their own offices or cubicles, feel free to allow them to decorate as they please. As long as the workspace is not impeded by the decorations and that a “business as usual” environment is maintained, it can be great for employee morale if they are allowed their own freedom of expression.

“Consensus seems to be that for employees who wish to decorate their personal spaces they do so on their own time, such as before or after work or during a lunch break and it should not impose on their neighbours in any way,” reports Merrill, “Truly religious symbols such as a nativity scene should be kept small and unobtrusive, for the owner only. On the other hand, more common decorations such as garlands are more generally appropriate for all because they represent a more commercialized aspect of the holiday.”

2. Start a food drive. This is a hugely important holiday tradition that should garner the involvement of all employees, no matter what traditions they acknowledge. Having a station set up for the collection of non-perishable foods in your office is arguably the best possible “decoration” you can set up. AllBusiness.com strongly recommends that you share the “true spirit” of the season in this way.

“The holiday season is not only a time to celebrate, it is also a time to think of those less fortunate than ourselves,” says the site, “Bring the spirit of giving into your office by organizing a company food drive. Ask employees to bring in canned goods and other non-perishable food items to donate to a local shelter or other aid organization. Display the food items in a corner of the office where the growing pile will inspire employees to bring in their own contributions.”

3. Use your company’s promotional gifts. Who says that promo gifts can’t be used as decorations? The holiday season is a great time of year to help boost company pride. Place your promo gifts throughout the office and offer them as prizes to employees who are the most productive. Friendly competition never hurts. And when your staff members are given more opportunities to earn bonuses, it helps to drive competition.

At Synergy Marketing, we have a wide array of promo gifts to offer our customers. Water bottles, pens, flashlights, wine stoppers, key chains, knives, tools and so much more are available now! We even have a fantastic array of holiday gifts including our very popular Christmas Card and CD combo! Don’t hesitate to give us a call to order the promo gift of your choice today. Simply dial 1-877-748-9884!

3 Ways Promotional Christmas Cards Help Your Business

Posted in Promotional Products on 10.11.15 by John Meloche

Cute woman dressed in wintery, holiday clothing, suitable for representing Christmas.Giving out Christmas cards is a very common tradition during the holiday season. That season, of course, is right around the corner. But, in the business world, it’s already here! Business owners always need to get a jump on the entire holiday spirit-thing. Marketing your business so that it attracts holiday shoppers is important during the busiest shopping season of the year. And, as we pointed out in yesterday’s blog, the handing out of Christmas cards is a proven marketing strategy.

Here are three ways promotional Christmas cards help your business:

1. They help you to develop and grow relationships. During the holiday season, you don’t just want to think about boosting sales. You want to think about building relationships. Doing so will inspire repeat business well after the holidays are over. Keep in mind that you are likely to meet a lot of new people in the coming weeks. What can you do to ensure that those meetings turn into newfound relationships?

On TheMarketingPeople.com, it is revealed that handing out Christmas cards also helps to build and maintain relationships with those who have been supporting your business for some time: “We all know how difficult it is to keep in touch with all your clients all of the time, a bespoke Christmas card is great for saying hello to a client you’ve not spoken to in a while, also it’s a great way of adding a little extra thank you for the clients you are dealing with right now.”

2. They help you to outshine your competition. Yesterday, we noted that the giving out of Christmas cards, by your company, can help for it to be memorable well into the new year. This is especially important when you’re battling with competitors over holiday shoppers. This is certainly the time of year to give customers reasons to choose you over your competition. Your kind gesture of handing out Christmas cards will certainly endear you to more people.

On CyberImpact.com, it is stated that Christmas cards make for great ways to set your business apart from its competitors. “In these times, we must do everything we can to attract and keep the attention of our customers,” says the site, “This is why we must work twice as hard and be even more creative when preparing our holiday greetings. With Christmas cards, we have the opportunity to be both original and relevant.”

3. They help you to increase sales. At the end of the day, this is essentially the point of handing out any promo gift. All business owners wish to increase sales. And, during the holiday season, this is especially true. This is why spreading holiday cheer, as part of your marketing campaigns, is such a big deal. When you hand someone in your store a business card, it provides an opportunity to spark a conversation that can lead to a sale.

“Of course sending out branded Christmas cards isn’t just to wish everyone a happy Christmas!” admits TheMarketingPeople.com, “It’s an opportunity to open conversation which could mean more sales for your business. Any talking point for you and your clients holds potential.” At Synergy Marketing, our many years of experience have proven to us just how effective the handing out of promo gifts can be during the holidays.

This is why we so highly recommend our Christmas cards with CDs. The added bonus of getting holiday music along with a card helps our clients to be put “over the top” with their customers. You can choose to hand them out to your customers directly, or you can send them in the mail. Either way, you’re bound to gain great favour with the buying public with these inexpensive ways to spread holiday cheer.

3 Reasons To Give Christmas Cards To Your Customers

Posted in Promotional Products on 09.11.15 by John Meloche

img-xcd-2011-christmas-cards-1024x1269 As you’re very likely aware, the holiday shopping season is officially in full swing! With the end-of-year holiday season fast approaching, consumers all over Canada will be spending the better part of the next two months searching for gifts to give their loved ones. As we’ve pointed out a number of times on the Synergy Marketing Blog, this is the perfect time of year to get into the spirit of giving.

Business owners, we’re looking at you! Not only will people arguably appreciate your gift-giving gesture now more than ever, but you have the perfect opportunity to help spread holiday cheer. And what’s the best way to do that? Giving out Christmas cards is a common practice. Why not make it part of your company’s yearly tradition? It should come as no surprise that giving out cards will help your business to earn quite the reputation that won’t soon be forgotten.

Here are three reasons to give Christmas cards to your customers:

1. It will inspire customer loyalty. Remember that you will most likely be given the opportunity to welcome more customers into your store, in the coming weeks, than at any other time of the year. By offering Christmas cards to your new customers, you will leave impressions that will inspire them to revisit you in the new year. Can you think of a more effective and cost-conscious way to impress all of your holiday shoppers?

On CyberImpact.com, Christmas cards are referred to as being more than communication tools – they are customer loyalty tools. “The Christmas card is certainly one of the most effective ways of communicating to increase customer loyalty,” insists the site, “And for a small business, you know how important this can be! During the pre-holiday period, it is the essential element to consider for your email marketing strategy.”

2. It makes your business memorable. It’s also important to keep in mind that your company will be one of several that your customers will visit this holiday season. So what can you do to stick out from all of the others? Your Christmas card is meant to make an impression – one that will differentiate you from your competitors, and even businesses you’re not competing with. If you want to be memorable this holiday season, you can’t go wrong with handing out cards.

As you may have guessed, we’re not the only company that thinks this way. “A well designed bespoke Christmas card is unbeatable and will bring your business front of mind to all recipients,” claims TheMarketingPeople.com, “Whether its pictures of your team dressed as Santa or the office dog in disguise as Rudolf or a more traditional snow festooned pine tree, good memorable design either printed or digital works.”

3. It provides a proven profitable marketing technique. According to CyberImpact.com, “studies show that sending a Christmas card is a marketing technique that yields a significant 39% return on investment for each dollar invested (Power of Direct Marketing, DMA, 2011-2012 edition)!” At the end of the day, all business owners are looking to make more money. A gesture as simple as handing out Christmas cards during the holidays can certainly help you to do that.

At Synergy Marketing, we provide our clients with the perfect promotional Christmas card. We’ve done one better than the traditional card by adding a holiday CD! Containing no less than 12 memorable classics, the CD and card combo is a surefire way to impress every recipient this holiday season. The cards are not dated, so you may use them for future holiday seasons as well. For just $5.95 each, our Christmas cards and CDs are must-haves!

5 Benefits To Handing Out Holiday Cards To Customers

Posted in Synergy Suggestions on 10.11.14 by John Meloche

Xmas-CD-2011-160x160‘Tis the season to be merry! And if you’re a business owner, having this philosophy will do your company a great service in the coming weeks. You see, we’re officially now at the time of year when spreading holiday cheer is the norm. But more importantly, it can be quite a lucrative practice for you. Naturally, the increase in the number of shoppers coming your way will give your more opportunities to build stronger relationships.

And making sure to pass along warm holiday wishes is the ideal way to grow those connections. One way to achieve that is to hand out holiday greeting cards. It’s an age-old practice that hasn’t lost its lustre over the years. People appreciate kind gestures, especially during this time of year. So there’s no time like the present to hand out these “presents”. StudioMirageGreetings.com agrees and lists five benefits to handing out holiday cards to your customers.

1. It communicates your appreciation. The website states that giving customers Christmas cards is the perfect way to show how much you appreciate them. It lets them know that they are special. According to the site, “the holiday card will allow you to convey a personal message. Your clients will know that they are important to you and this will also help in maintaining customer loyalty.”

2. It strengthens relationships. As we mentioned before, your kind gesture of a holiday card will help to build the relationships you’ve been developing with your customers. No matter the business type, clients appreciate their interactions with companies over and above the actual products and services they pay for. As StudioMirageGreetings.com points out, the holiday season provides “a good opportunity to acknowledge your working relationship and extend a friendly gesture.”

3. It markets your business to new clients. As great as holiday cards work to grow the relationships you’ve already made, they work just as well in growing your client base. “They enable you to put your business name out there,” reads the website, “Sending cards to prospective clients shows them that you are willing to go the extra mile by taking the time to send them a personal greeting during the busy Christmas season.”

4. It provides a personal touch. There are many informal ways to express thanks. A holiday card is not one of them. This is especially true when you are thanking your employees. “Show your appreciation to employees and co-workers by giving them a greeting card with a personal message,” advises StudioMirageGreetings.com, “Acknowledgement of employee effort is good for morale and in maintaining good communication and work productivity.”

5. It helps you to stay organized. Admittedly, sending out holiday cards may take up a bit of your time. But considering how important a gesture it is and how much it can benefit your business, it’s certainly worth doing. Organizing your time this holiday season will be of paramount importance. “Stepping it up” to organize your time will hopefully become a practice that you carry on right into the new year.

At Synergy Marketing, we can do you one better than a traditional holiday card. We offer cards that come with wonderful holiday CDs! They make the perfect promotional giveaways during the holiday season. The CDs include 12 memorable holiday classics and the two different card designs are not dated so that can be used year after year! To place your order, give us a call at 1-877-748-9884!

Choosing The Perfect Holiday-Themed Promo Gift

Posted in Promotional Products on 21.11.13 by John Meloche

Xmas-CD-2011-160x160Here come the holidays! And as we’ve been blogging about for the past couple of weeks, it’s the perfect time of year to hand out your promotional products. After all, it’s the season of giving. And when giving out your promo gifts this holiday season, you may want to pay particular attention to the types of gifts you are handing out. There are several holiday-themed gifts to choose from.

As Jill Harness writes on TopTenReviews.com, “Sending a holiday gift is a good way to get your brand remembered and show customer appreciation. Depending on your business, you may want to refrain from offering anything that gives preference to one specific religion, but organizations such as churches and certain political groups may be better off buying items that are affiliated with specific beliefs.”

As mentioned, with so many holiday-themed gifts to choose from, it will be hard to go wrong. As you know, Synergy Marketing is here to help you with your holiday-themed promotional gifts. But let’s take a look at the suggestions listed by Harness as to what gifts may make the most sense for your clients this holiday season. Remember, it’s all about securing customers’ loyalty for years to come.

Christmas Cards. It’s hard to go wrong with these, right? Well, perhaps it depends on the types of cards you give out. Cards are thoughtful gestures that don’t often separate you from everyone else. However, as Harness points out, “while you could buy generic Christmas cards at any local store, purchasing them from a promotional product company will allow you to brand them with your logo and a personal message.”

Keep in mind that your promo gift is meant to add a personal touch to the customer experience. Naturally, you’ll want all of your customers to enjoy the holidays. But you’ll also want to remind them of where to shop well after the holidays are done. At Synergy Marketing, we have a number of holiday cards to choose from. But to be honest, they are more than your average Christmas cards!

Holiday CDs. “An increasing trend in holiday promotional products is the concept of holiday CDs,” writes Harness. And, at Synergy Marketing, we are well aware of this trend. That’s why our Christmas cards come with CDs that contain instrumental holiday music! Each CD is comprised of 12 memorable holiday classics and there are two different card designs.

What’s great about these items is that there are no dates on the cards so they can be used for this year, next year and any year thereafter. The music, of course, is timeless. So investing in these CD and card combos is an excellent idea as you’ll have great holiday gifts for years to come if you choose. Usually $5.49, these cards with CDs are now on sale for only $3.99 each!

In tomorrow’s blog, we’ll continue to take a look at Harness’ suggestions as to what promotional gifts make the perfect holiday giveaways. As always, our Synergy Marketing sales reps are available to speak with you about which gifts would work best to promote your business. Give them a call at 1-877-748-9884 and let’s work on making this holiday season your best one yet!

5 More Creative Holiday Marketing Ideas

Posted in Promotional Products, Synergy Suggestions on 15.11.13 by John Meloche

HW-401_BIG-160x160In yesterday’s blog, we began looking at an article by Ivana Taylor on SmallBizTrends.com that outlined a number of ways in which business owners can market their companies for the holidays. This is the time of year, as you well know, when you’ll have the opportunity to meet with more customers than at any other point in the year. It’s a must you take advantage of it.

In today’s blog, we will revisit that list to further reveal ideas that will help grow your business, starting now and going well into the new year. You’ll notice, by the way, that the use of promotional products does make this list. At Synergy Marketing, we’re only too excited to help entrepreneurs throughout Canada make use of promo gifts to grow their companies.

Write a free (industry specific) downloadable Holiday Survival guide for your customers. Showing off your expertise is always a good idea – as long as it’s done tastefully. And providing your tips and advice (not unlike we’re doing in this blog!) is a great way to do just that. Offer your clients free tips and tricks that they will really appreciate. Taylor goes as far as suggesting that you think about compiling an e-book.

Write your own “Holiday Story”. “With so many low-cost photo book options out there, it’s a no-brainer to hire a writer, take some pictures (or use your employees’ kids to create illustrations) around a holiday story,” writes Taylor, “You can develop a story that features some of your core corporate values wrapped around the holidays…(it) will be a keepsake AND a promotional item for your customers.”

Create a real-life or a digital “Holiday Tree”. Taylor suggests that you decorate a tree with your “features and benefits”. Use low-cost decorations to spruce things up while incorporating examples of your brand’s products. You can even use pictures that you’ve taken of you and your staff and customers. The more makeshift ornaments that you add that symbolize your dedication to these relationships, the better impression you’ll make.

Commission a special holiday greeting. Taylor admits that some people simply can’t resist sending out holiday greeting cards. And as far as we’re concerned, that’s just fine by us! As we blogged about a couple of days ago, one of our best promotional products is the Christmas Music CD and Card for only $3.99 each! Contact one of our reps today to get your hands on them! They are perfect cost-effective holiday promotional tools.

Create a Customer Recipe Collection. “Instead of collecting recipes from friends and family, let your customers know that they are part of your family by including THEIR favorite recipes mingled in with yours,” suggests Taylor. This is a great way to engage your customers, letting them know that they matter to you. The same attitude should be taken towards the feedback they give you all year round. It pays dividends.

As we mentioned earlier, the staff here at Synergy Marketing loves to help Canadian business owners promote their companies. Our promotional products have been achieving this for many years. Let’s get you doing the same. Give one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales reps a call by dialing 1- 877-748-9884. This holiday season is bound to be your best!

5 Creative Holiday Marketing Ideas

Posted in Promotional Products, Synergy Suggestions on 14.11.13 by John Meloche

DRK-03_BIG-160x160Business promotion is the name of game. At least, around here at Synergy Marketing it is. But as we’ve been blogging about all week long, the current time of year presents the most ideal time to put some extra effort into advertising your business. With the holiday season approaching and shopping picking up quite significantly, you will be given greater opportunities to build new relationships with customers.

As we’ve been mentioning, holiday-themed promotional gifts serve as great ways to make new connections. But, of course, there are numerous ways that your business can attract more customers into your place of business to begin with. In today’s blog, we’ll take a look at a few of those ways as outlined by Ivana Taylor on SmallBizTrends.com. And they’re all “creative marketing ideas that won’t break the bank”.

Dress up your website or blog logo. Similar to the way that Google likes to play with its logo on certain special days of the year, you should make your business logo and website reflect this time of year. It’s a fun and easy way to let your online visitors know that your business is friendly and inviting. Taylor advises that you give the same holiday flair to your social media pages, including your Twitter account.

Try personalizing or customizing. Interestingly, Taylor points out the importance of branding items with your company logo – just as we do, here at Synergy Marketing, on a regular basis. She notes that there is pretty much no end to the number of things that you can personalize, but remarks that you should “create water bottles or other beverages with your logo and/or team photo on it”. We can certainly help you with that!

Meet your customers half-way. “Take a look at your business process,” writes Taylor, “what opportunities do you have to save your customers money by letting them ‘contribute’ to the work?” For example, do you own a food service business where it would save you money if customers brought their own mugs for coffee? If so, offer it to them at a discount. There are many ways to meet your customers half-way.

Create a Video Card on your site or on YouTube. You are likely aware of the vast popularity of YouTube. It seems as if people are logging on to this site more than they are watching their favourite shows on television. Utilize this phenomenon by filming you and your staff singing a holiday song in front of a video camera. It won’t hurt, of course, to plug your company and include its logo in the final edit.

Create 12-days of “your product”. A riff on the popular Christmas song, this idea is a great way to inform your clients about your top products. As Taylor points out, “many of your customers don’t even KNOW about — let alone purchase — all the different products and services you have to offer.” It’s no different than the “book of the month” club idea. It will add interest to items that may not be selling as well as you’d like.

In tomorrow’s blog, we’ll continue to take a look at Taylor’s list of holiday-themed marketing suggestions. And as always, our staff is available to speak with you about how our holiday-themed promotional products will help you to boost business during and after the holidays. They can be reached at 1- 877-748-9884. Give us a call and let’s make these holidays your happiest ones yet!

Christmas Music CDs and Cards Now On Sale!

Posted in Promotional Products on 12.11.13 by John Meloche

Xmas-CD-2011-160x160Happy Holidays everyone! You may think that it’s a bit early to be saying that. But if you’re a business owner, you know that the time is perfectly right. In other words, now is the time to invest is some wonderful holiday greeting cards to give to your customers, colleagues, co-workers, family members and friends. And Synergy Marketing has the perfect card for you to give out!

Our Christmas Music CD and Card contains a wonderful CD with 12 memorable instrumental holiday classics. Originally priced at $5.49 a piece, these awesome card/CD combos are now going for just $3.99 each. We’d argue that there is no better way to promote your business between now and the new year than to hand out these great greeting cards and CDs.

Cost-Effective. First of all, these great promo gifts are among the most value-providing gifts on our roster. Think about the cost of your average greeting card. You can often find them in the five to six dollar range. Now, what is the average cost of a CD? You’d be lucky to find such a combo for less than $15 in any store. Well, thankfully, Synergy Marketing provides you with all the luck you need.

Long Term Use. Secondly, these cards are not dated. That means you can order as many as you like in order to potentially use some for next year and the years thereafter. It’s not like the holidays are ever going to go out of style. As a result, this card/CD combination will never go out of style either. Offering “Seasons Greetings” this way is a perfect way to drum more holiday cheer.

Spreading The Spirit. Speaking of holiday cheer, this time of year, it’s imperative that you do just that. People are in the spending mood for obvious reasons. The more reasons you give them to continue to visit your store, the more beneficial it is to your brand. That “personal touch” that we often mention promo gifts provide is best exemplified by these great holiday cards.

“I gotta get those cards,” insisted one of our oldest clients yesterday. Reminding us about the success he’s had year in and year out, he was only too eager to order up another batch. “It’s a no brainer to give out holiday cards,” he said, “And with the CD, these things are a steal. I give them out every year and find that people really appreciate them. They think it’s just a card, but then love that a CD comes with it.”

Give your favourite clients and colleagues this thoughtful holiday gift and you’re bound to give your brand a greater impression. Remember that it’s the relationships you develop through giving out promo gifts that make them such successful advertising tools. The holiday season is easily the best possible time of year to be getting in on the gift-giving spirit.

As we mentioned earlier, the Christmas Music CD and Card is now on sale for just $3.99 each. This investment in your business will go a long way to boosting its image. As well, your handing out of these cards will boost the holiday spirit of those who are lucky enough to be recipients. Order yours today! Simply call Synergy Marketing at 1-877-748-9884.
