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.

REELZChannel Gives Party-goers An Unforgettable Experience

What do you get when you mix an Octoberfest-themed party with the upfronts in April?  You get raving reviews from party-goers and SWAG that disappears off tables faster than it can be replenished.

 

Creating a unique and memorable party gift was top priority for this project for REELZChannel, an independent television channel with original shows such as Hollywood Hillbillies, Beverly Hills Pawn, and Hollywood Scandals.  

Since the party was Octoberfest themed, a ceramic German-style beer stein was chosen as the party gift for those who attended. In order to ensure that the clients’ artwork really “popped,” ceramic decals were used which were then high-fired onto ceramic beer steins. This process fuses the ceramic decal onto the mug so that it seamlessly integrates with the mug itself.

Nice packaging can really take a gift to the next level.  So we created custom-printed gift boxes filled with orange crinkle cut filling to hold each ceramic beer mug. These gift boxes were then placed into branded gift bags for easy transport home after the party.

In the end, mission accomplished!  The gifts receive raving reviews and our client was thrilled with the results.

After getting the gifts back home, some people even found additional creative uses for the crinkle filling such as this hilarious office prank.  Now where are those files?

Manchester University Students Cheer For Their Handmade Mugs

Manchester University, an independent, liberal arts school is located in North Manchester, Indiana, needed a unique gift item to help extend an extra-warm welcome to their 3rd year students. The goal was to instill pride in the University by giving students something they could keep at their desk or proudly display once they graduate. Our handcrafted mugs turned out to be exactly the type of artisan gift that the university was looking for.

So what did our client have to say after the mugs were delivered? “The event we had to give away the mugs went exceedingly well.  We started the students off in a small auditorium on campus and then took them through the tunnels that run under our campus.  The tunnels are rarely seen by students.  They were able to sign their names on the walls of the tunnels.  When they got to the other end of campus we had a party where they got their mug.  We took “Mug Shots” of them for the yearbook. We also numbered the mugs so that they could win prizes throughout the next year and a half of college. The mugs were a hit.  Students LOVED them and they cheered when we said we had left handed mugs!”

We just love helping our clients create memorable gifts like this!

The Holiday Season Offers Businesses A Gift-Giving Opportunity

 

Every year Harbinger Pictures, a feature film production company based in Los Angeles, sends out holiday gifts branded with their logo.  The holidays offer a once-a-year opportunity for businesses to show their clients and employees their appreciation for all that they do.

This year, Harbinger Pictures came to Brand Spirit, Inc. for the first time. They selected this Aluminum Water Bottle to brand with their logo after receiving a free review sample.  This quality-crafted bottle comes with a carabiner to easily clip to backpacks or belt clips.

“We’ve ordered bottles with our logo on them for several years now.  It is part of our holiday gift.  But this year was awesome, we have never had a more enjoyable and easy experience.”  says H.W. of Harbinger Pictures.  “Brand Spirit and Jenna were great to work with, they followed up at every turn.  I felt like I was their number 1 customer, I didn’t have to think they did all the work, made ordering easy.”

What a lovely testimonial!  This is our #1 priority at Brand Spirit, to make our clients happy and exceed expectations.
