Giving branded items as gifts doesn’t have to be boring and, in fact, with Coastal Connections Marketing, it never is! Based in Morehead City, our friend and local business owner Caroline Roberts is providing our community with high-quality, forward-thinking branded items for any type of business. “Our clients look professional, grow their reach, and don’t have to lift a finger,” says Caroline. And it’s true – the team at Coastal Connections Marketing (CCM) has worked alongside us at MCKRE over the past couple of years, providing us with top-notch products that we love! With holiday gifts on the minds of many business owners here in Carteret County, Caroline has some tips for client gift giving (that can be utilized year round!):
- Don’t send a box without a message. It’s also really important to include an insert or some type of call-to-action, even if the call-to-action is to have a good holiday!
- Always include a personal touch. It could be a handwritten label, a personal note inside, etc.
- Include some kind of branding on the exterior of the box as a little teaser to build anticipation. CCM can create branded packaging tape, stickers, stamps or custom-printed boxes.
- If you have a smaller budget, a padded envelope with a variety of smaller items is perfect for a higher perceived value. For example, bundling a pen and a notepad with a hand-written note makes such a thoughtful gift!
