Case Study: Holiday Gift

Project Goal:

Each and every day, Arrow Promotional focuses various efforts to engage and retain our customers. During the holiday season, however, we like to go above and beyond to express our customer appreciation.

Project Theme:

For the 2016 holiday season, we prepared an epic gift for  our most loyal and valued customers. The gift was comprised of various items that fit under the overall theme, “Get Ready for 2017”. Each item was intended to prepare the recipient to best “survive” the upcoming year. The components incorporated both technology in practicality, essentially providing customers with a highly useful and convenient gift.

Project Description:

The holiday gift was packaged inside a custom-designed heavy-duty white metal gift box. Enclosed was a branded action camera, customized conversational candy hearts, branded socks, a Swiss Army knife with USB drive, money plant seeds and a mailer card. Each item was branded with the Arrow Promotional logo.

The Mailer Card

The action camera, branded with our logo, includes all the necessary accessories. The conversational heart candies are enclosed in branded packaging and each heart is printed with the messages #GetReady, #Sweet, or #Epic. The Swiss Army knife includes a USB with 8GB of storage, a mini scissors and a blade, and is branded with our hashtag logo and URL. The custom multi-color dress socks, designed with our brand colors and red hashtag, were included to encourage recipients to put their best foot forward in the New Year. The money plant seeds are packaged in a bag with our hashtag logo and URL.   

Recognition :

Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) awarded Arrow Promotional a Silver Pyramid Award in (Marketing) for the 2018 Pyramid Award Competition. We received this award for our “dedication to solution-based selling combined with creative inspiration and the ability deliver promotional strategies that resonate with customers and deliver results.”

It even elicited new orders and encouraged clients to continue to hire us for future projects.
