Pharrell Williams knew the importance of it and there’s no doubt we all need a bit more just now-happiness. The convivial, chirpy feeling we’re all so fond of. Clearly being a pleasant human being and nice to those around us goes a long way. But we believe little perks or bonuses can add an extra dollop of happiness to work relationships. We want to make more people happy with promotional products!
Why it’s important to keep everyone happy.
In business, we obviously work to make people happy. We want them to be pleased with the product or service we provide, enjoy working for us or take joy in working relationships. Increasingly though these touchpoints have been put under strain, either by lack of face-to-face interaction with Covid restrictions or simply more online working and shopping. For many, the connections we had with shopkeepers, suppliers, clients or our team at the office have dwindled.
This reduction or absence of meaningful interactions can have serious consequences for people’s mental wellbeing. This is not just bad news for staff morale and productivity but business too. Disillusioned consumers can’t connect with businesses in the same way and it’s just not good for society as a whole.
So many of our interactions are now digital that not only do we not talk to real humans as much but very little is tangible. There is something very powerful about actually being able to touch something and hold on to it and keep it as a lasting reminder.
How promotional products can help make people happy.
Promotional products are at their simplest, little gifts and who doesn’t like to receive a gift? It immediately induces positive feelings, especially towards the benefactor, who in this case, is your lovely, thoughtful company. This zeal for your brand can spread like wildfire as news of this kind gift is passed around. Your company suddenly has emotion and a personality that all stakeholders warm to.
For consumers a token of your appreciation for their brand loyalty can delight and inspire. It can encourage them to re engage with your brand, take another look at your website and build long term bonds.
For staff, these happiness rewards can be a way to reach out to home workers that makes them feel valued and part of the team. Even modest gifts can help to boost staff retention and loyalty.
Where promotional products really set themselves apart from digital vouchers or e cards is that they are tangible. You get the anticipation of opening the parcel, the joy of holding a well made, stylish product and the excitement of using it. With most promotional products you have the added benefit of longevity, these gifts can be enjoyed again and again. Think how often a branded water bottle or travel mug gets used (and paraded around for all to see!) And every time your little present is used, they have a reminder and positive feeling towards your brand
