ornament_01_big-160x160In yesterday’s blog, we began looking at an article by Jill Harness on TopTenReviews.com. In it, she lists a number of suggestions for business owners concerning promotional gifts that work best during the holidays. It goes without saying that the holiday season provides the perfect opportunity to give out promotional gifts. Being in the spirit of giving just comes with the season.

Don’t lose out by having your competition best you in this department. At Synergy Marketing, we have an array of holiday-themed promotional products that will encourage your clients to support your brand for years to come. Yesterday, we provided some information about our great Christmas Card and CD combos. As timeless as these gifts are, today’s blog will offer a few more suggestions.

Calendars. Just two blogs ago, we championed the calendar as the perfect holiday gift. Inexpensive and practical, calendars are year-long promotional tools that are universally used and appreciated. Consider that these promo gifts literally have the ability to promote your brand each and every day for an entire year. And as Harness points out, they make perfect non-denominational gifts.

At Synergy Marketing, we have 25 different calendar designs to choose from. From vehicles to animals, scenery to buildings, sports to food and so much more, our calendar designs cover every type you can think of. Choosing the right one for your brand will be very important. It’s a good thing that we have a team of experts who have experience in helping Canadian business owners make good choices.

Ornaments. Although Harness admits that Christmas ornaments are only used at one specific time of year, it’s important to keep in mind that they can be used each and every year. Talk about a promotional gift that is never worth throwing away! A promotional ornament serves as a yearly reminder for your clients about where to do business. An ornament is a “cute way to send your message”, says Harness.

At Synergy Marketing, we offer amazing Christmas tree ornaments in a variety of shapes. These unique brushed aluminum ornaments come in three holiday designs: Tree, Star and Snowman. Great ways to keep your company on the minds of your clients all throughout each holiday season, these ornaments are sold at just $5.99 each. The price includes one location laser engraving and a black gift box.

“This is a great time of year to hand out gifts,” commented one of our oldest clients this week, “It only makes sense considering it’s the holiday season. I know my customers get a kick out of getting something for free when they come to see me. Especially since they are spending so much these days, they like the feeling of getting something extra. My gifts have helped me to keep my customers over the years.”

Keeping your customers can be made easy. It’s all about giving out the best promotional gifts for your brand. At Synergy Marketing, we are only too happy to help you choose the perfect gift. Give one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales reps a call at 1-877-748-9884. With so many holiday-themed gifts to choose from, you may end up having your most successful holiday season ever!

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!

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.
