Ever since the invention of social media, the most successful businesses are the ones that find inventive ways to use it as a marketing tool. The key is, however, that social sites need to be used in creative and inventive ways. Merely creating a Twitter account or Facebook Like page is not enough anymore. For an added touch of professionalism, try combining social media with promotional gifts to get customers noticing your business.
The use of social marketing sites is a great way to bring your business into the modern century of technology. Promotional items like mouse mats can also make your business appear more technologically savvy as well. No matter what kind of business you own, promotional items can serve your business and your customers well.
If you want a better idea of what your audience craves from your business, you may want to reward them with promotional merchandise for taking surveys regarding your business. Often, younger generations can have great ideas for new social networking sites your business can use for marketing. Try offering a variety of promotional items in a goodie bag along with a coupon or gift certificate for your company, in exchange for some fresh ideas from your customers. By getting your business out on as many social networking sites as possible, you are increasing the visibility of your site online which can result in greater profitability in the long run.
Getting customers engaged through promotional gifts is a great way to earn respect for your company. In addition, customers will feel like they are a valued part of your business. When you create positive synergy amongst your customers with promotional gifts, you can build better customer loyalty for your business and keep them coming back for more.
When considering which promotional gifts to use with social media, desktop gifts are usually a popular choice. Desktop gifts like conference folders, mouse mats, and coffee mugs are very popular items because everyone has a practical use for such items. In addition, these items can make your business appear professional to an entire other audience that is encountered by your customers with the promotional gifts everyday.
If you want to really get creative with promotional gifts and social media, try hosting a “social media” treasure hunt. Host your company on as many social media sites as possible. The person that finds your company on the most social media websites gets the promotional gift of his or her choice. This can be a fun way to increase your traffic and popularity in social media networking sites!
