Time to Show You Care: 4 Ways Promotional Products Work for Valentine’s Day


Valentine's Day is a perfect occasion to show customers and employees how much you care!

Time is ticking away in 2016, and Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. When we think of holidays for which promotional products work we may automatically jump to the fourth-quarter, but Valentine’s Day is also a perfect match!  It’s not a secret that it’s never too late to show your appreciation to your customers and employees - and branded items are much more memorable than dime-store chocolates and trinkets.

Here at Maple Ridge Farms we love any excuse to indulge in gourmet goodies. And since we also love to share, here are 4 ways that promotional products (such as delectable chocolates, nuts, and savory cheese and sausage) work perfectly for Valentine’s Day:

 1. Stand Out in the Crowd

The end-of-the-year holidays can be chaotic. Chances are that you have customers, employees, and other associates who received an abundance of gifts at the end of 2015. Sending a gift for Valentine’s Day will surely set you apart in their minds. For that exact reason, some companies specifically choose to send their yearly gifts and show their gratitude after the start of the year – and Valentine’s Day is a perfect occasion! A token of your appreciation sent now will most certainly not get lost in the shuffle.

2. Reach the Overlooked

During the hustle-and-bustle of year-end festivities, it becomes easy to let things slip through the cracks. Are you thinking, “I can’t believe I forgot to…” or “I really should have…” in regards to holiday gifting? Valentine’s Day is a great way to reach out and still make an impact. It’s a way to avoid having your sentiment seem like an after-thought.

3. Simply Say “Thank You”

One way to keep your customers coming back time and time again is to send a simple thank- you for their orders and support in the previous year. The same goes for your employees. Saying “thank you” for their hard work in 2015 is a way to keep them striving for excellence in the upcoming year. Taking a moment to let those involved in your business know you appreciate all they do will keep them coming back for more.

4. Get a Jump Start on the New Year with Distributor Self Promotion

Making sure your brand and image have retention throughout the year is easy when you start early. There are numerous sources for your customers to choose from.  Remind them that you are their best source for gourmet food gifts while treating them to a taste of what’s available.  Give them a reason to ask, “Where did you find that?”

Don’t forget to take advantage of all Valentine’s Day has to offer in terms of promotional products. Sending gourmet food gifts to your customers, employees, or other associates now will be a sweet way to reach out, share the love, and start the new year off with great taste!
