Corporate Gift Ideas: Fine Art To Talk About

Art PicksIdeasTips & Tricks

As you read this, it’s fair to say that you can think of at least a few corporate gifts that have been given to you by a client, a vendor, a colleague, and the list goes on. There’s a good reason for this. Research shows that physical gifts attract more customers and make them repeat customers more so than digital gifts. 

Corporate gifting is an effective and meaningful strategy for connecting with prospects, clients, customers, and more. In this blog, we will tell you all about corporate art gift ideas and give you tips to help you stand out and make sure YOUR gift is remembered, in the right way! 

What Makes A Unique Corporate Gift Idea?

There are a number of ways to set your company’s corporate gifts apart from those of your competition and ensure a positive impact. 

Make It Special

If you’re sending a corporate gift to your clients, make it special and personalized to them. By doing this, it shows that you care. Here’s an example, when sending a corporate gift to your client, don’t forget to write a personalized message. It’s a small gesture with big rewards. 

Make it Personal 

While this part takes some time, it’s the perfect way to make your clients feel valued. As we know, many companies were online during the COVID pandemic. As life returns to normal, they will likely be returning to the office. Why not send them pieces of art to put on their office wall?

Make It Actionable

Identifying a purpose for the gift can assist you in achieving a key aspect of corporate gift. Are you delivering a top-of-funnel gift to boost brand recognition, a middle-of-funnel gift to promote engagement, or a bottle-of-funnel present to improve the pipeline? Consider where your receiver is in the sales cycle when developing your gifting plan so that you can maximize your return on investment. What call to action will make the time and effort it took to send your gift deserving of its value?

An effective one-of-a-kind business present should be able to elicit an answer. As part of their call to action, try to get the recipient to engage with the gift in some way. Engaging, heartfelt experiences will be far more memorable than a branded coffee mug of promotional pen.

Why Is Corporate Gifting Important?

Employee benefits come in a huge range – think health insurance, life insurance, paid time off (PTO), profit sharing, and corporate giving. Establishing a connection between the present giver and the company or brand is the aim of corporate gifting. Corporate gifts are a great way to promote brand connection with employees, clients, and potential customers.

Improving The Image Of A Brand

Corporate giving is a great way to improve your brand’s or business’s reputation. Everyone likes surprises and gifts, so giving your staff gifts helps them feel valued. Your reputation will improve as a result of the positive word of mouth from your staff.

Showing Respect

Giving branded corporate gifts to customers, suppliers, and employees communicates the company’s thanks for them and their support.

Boosting Company Morale 

The office environment improves when gifts are offered for commercial purposes. Corporate gifts improve an organization’s mood. Both customers and employees will attest to the fact that the company values them and is committed to working with and rewarding them.

Promoting Your Business

Have you considered using corporate gifts to advertise your company? You can use gift-giving as a marketing opportunity to promote your company. Using items printed with your logo and business cards, such as pens, t-shirts, notebooks, hats, calendars, keychains, and more, is a good way to quietly promote your company, but pieces of art works better.
