Why use gift certificates for your business?
Gift certificates offer seamless convenience to both givers & buyers alike. Recipients often have the freedom to choose the products or services they want & people no longer have to go through the dilemma of selection.
From a business perspective, advantages of using gift certificates can include but are not limited to increased sales, improved cash flow, inventory management, more marketing opportunities & a stronger bottom line as a result of unredeemed gift cards.
Adding gift certificates to your marketing mix also enhances customer engagement, encourages repetitive visits, and can easily get new clients to your brand. Moreover, they are a form of cost-effective advertising that can help you create a Top Of Mind Awareness (TOMA) for your business. TOMA means that your business or brand is the first thing that comes to mind when people think about a particular product, service, or the perks that you offer.
Here are some facts about gift certificates that you shouldn’t miss:
- Gift certificates provide an additional revenue stream for retailers, generating revenue in advance of sales.
- Shoppers using gift cards are 2.5 times more likely to pay full price for the products they buy.
- Many gift cards are not redeemed for their full value so that encourages repeat visits.
- Many people spend more than the value of the gift certificate. (72% of consumers will spend about 20% more than the value of the gift certificate)
Insightful, right? It is no secret how businesses can benefit by leveraging gift certificates in their marketing initiatives to keep up with the small business & e-commerce trends. Besides, they also make really great last-minute, budget-friendly and thoughtful presents! It’s a win-win.
