Gifts are a great way to get new clients, and thank existing ones. They don’t have to be expensive, unless you’re dealing with a high end client. But they do have to be a good quality item. Don’t give out a pen that will stop working in a week, or some other item that will fall apart by the end of the month.
You can even make your own. Make an interesting little book (see my tip on the Minibuk). Do you deal in the food industry? Make a little cookbook, featuring your product/service. Handcraft an item, but it has to look professional, and not like a first grade art project.
Everyone loves receiving a gift, so pass them out.
