Beautiful Incentive Gifts to Increase Sales & Promote Your Cafe

We can all learn from Starbucks. They made collecting stickers a premium experience for customers and they’ve found an effective tool for repeat sales during the holidays on top of their other offers.

If you’re a start-up cafe and are looking to gain more awareness while increasing sales, running an incentive program for a month or so should be one of the strategies to explore. The coffee giant has perfected their program and other businesses have been following suit with their own spin on the mechanics of each incentive program.

Add a few twists to your incentive program other than the usual “buy X number of stuff to get Y.” Get creative and think of it as an experience for your customer. Perhaps instead of getting points for buying a product for themselves, why grant points when they buy something for a friend while in the store? It’s important to know your demographic and research on what they care about.

As a cafe, travel tumblers would make the perfect incentive gifts to entice product purchase but also put your business name on something people use everyday and an item them will keep for a long time.

Here are a few unique customizable drinkware your cafe might use as an incentive gift.

Densify Excites Techies with LED Sabers for AWS Reinvent 2017

Densify, a data cloud expert, joined the AWS Reinvent 2017 event last November and needed customized logo-branded LED sabers to be given as a fun booth giveaway; and we were there to supply these awesome gifts just in nick of time. 

As a tech company, Densify was very smart to integrate the perfect pop culture element into their booth to keep visitors and guests engaged and curious to come over and learn about their product.  

Using the popular movie theme for their giveaways, the brand chose our LED sabers that change colors with the touch of a button and make real saber sounds. To make the booth experience memorable, participants were asked to scan a QR code that gave them instructions for a scavenger hunt. These cool LED sabers were the prize for successful hunts. 

Geeks and tech savvy event-goers were immediately drawn to the booth and the sabers were such a hit that they ran out by the second day. The brand was able to hit their targets of product awareness, community engagement, and lead generation just as they projected.

Densify’s awareness strategy is a great example of “experience marketing” done right. Their campaign was simple, fun, and stayed true to the nature of their product and target audience.
