People who are used to doing things online love offline interaction too. There is a way to really get people’s attention, which is to send a special gift to your best customers, your best affiliates, someone who engages exceptionally well, or just because you feel like it. When you send something through the mail, people really do notice. Here are some ideas for you to use depending on your budget.
Send Out Cards Brownies
This is a simple way to send people you admire something special. You can send a branded card with the brownies which are delivered in a special box, and they are delicious. They are the real thing and people love them almost more than Granny’s brownies.
Hats, T-Shirts, Aprons
This is a great idea depending on your demographic. Send a very high quality branded item to anyone you want to call out and make feel extra special. Make the item you send relevant to your audience. Not everyone likes t-shirts. For example, if you have a food-centered niche, a branded apron or cutting board might make a good gift.
Flowers or Fruit
A fun gift to send through the mail to your best customers is flowers or even fruit. There are wonderful options out there today for sending these types of gifts. They’ll often send something that you can brand with your logo too.
You can send branded chocolate to a customer or helper by using a company like Chocomize (https://www.chocomize.com/). Today, with the ease of printing, you don’t have to spend as much money as you may think to send something super-special.
Sending Starbucks, Amazon, or other gift cards to someone who did something out of the ordinary within your groups is a wonderful way to reward them. You don’t always have to give away your own products free to get attention and make someone happy. In fact, this type of gift feels much better.
Handwritten Thank You Card
Another way to thank people and to connect offline is to send an old-fashioned handwritten thank you letter on stationary written with a pen and your own hand. This can take some time and be harder to do, and should be reserved for only super-special people.
A Framed Photograph
If you went to an event with someone and got a special photo taken with them, it can make a wonderful gift along with a thank you note. Get a frame you think they’d like, put the picture in it, wrap it with a bow and send it with a thank you note. It will bring a smile to their face and make them feel super-special.
Connecting with people in a way that feels thoughtful, special, and personal is a great way to make a big difference in the level of your connection with someone. Save these things for someone who really did something to make themselves stand out (or a hostess for an event) and it will be seen as really special.
