YOUR CUSTOMERS LOVE CHOCOLATE SO GIVE IT TO THEM
When you’re planning your corporate merch spend for the year, there’s always a huge temptation to go for branded objects that will keep your brand front-of-mind with your customers.
Of course, desk clocks, leather portfolios, coffee mugs, travel cups, t-shirts and all of the latest whizzy gadgets might be cool – but ultimately, your customers will more likely remember how your gift made them feel when they received it.
Long after your branded squeezy stress ball has been relegated to your merch cabinet, your customer’s 8-year old child – or worse still, their dog Thor – the memory of a gift of quality chocolate will remain in their mind (and taste buds) for way much longer!
Chocolate makes people feel good! Especially good quality couverture chocolate.
This is because it’s packed with a bunch of feel-good ingredients – like 1, 3, 7-trimethylxanthine – or caffeine as it’s more commonly called. Phenylethylamine, is another family of chemicals found in chocolate in very small amounts. Similar in structure to synthetic amphetamines – but a naturally occurring substance in chocolate – our brain produces phenylethylamine when we fall in love. It acts by producing endorphins, the brain’s natural “feel-good” molecules.
So the short story is, eating chocolate makes us feel loved up – and that’s exactly the feeling you want your clients to experience when you’re thinking about what to gift them! Besides, who doesn’t love receiving a beautifully packaged chocolate gift box to share round the office? It’ll make your customer look like a rockstar – and whatsmore, chocolate’s off-limits for Thor.
Chocolate is also a versatile giveaway on your tradeshow booth. People l-o-v-e chocolate on booths and will go out of their way to dip their hand into the chocolate bowl, giving your sales team the opportunity to have a chat and grab their card.
What’s more, you very rarely need to take chocolate back to the office after a tradeshow – unlike those pesky stress balls which typically end up being traded for other vendors’ merch on the final day. Your booth visitors will enjoy their sweet treat, while thinking about how thoughtful you were to have saved them from the dreaded conference mints.
