“Maintaining a strong working relationship with our dentists is a key part of our business success.

Troppolicious put together incredible, customised gift boxes for our VIP dentists & they were an absolute smash hit. It’s such a great way to acknowledge & show our appreciation to our VIP’s.”

Dr Paul Lane

5/5

Did you know…
it costs 5 x as much to attract a new customer, compared to keep an existing one?

01

Opportunity

The likelihood of you selling more to existing customers is 60%-70%.

02

Advantage

Only 18% of companies focus more on retention than acquisition. Be ahead of the game.

03

Impact

Increasing customer retention rates by as little as 5% translates to 25%-95% increase in profits.

If a gift isn’t personal. Forget it…

In a recent Global Culture Report (2021) which studied over 40,000 employees across 20 countries, 70% of employees say recognition is most meaningful to them when it is personalised.

Don’t keep making these common mistakes.

DON’T DO THIS

  • Only sending gifts for anniversaries, birthdays & Christmas
    (you’re lost in the noise of everyone else)
  • Gifting with food, gift cards or consumables
    (they are common ‘one off’ impression & frankly – lazy)
  • Put your company logo on corporate gifts
    (it becomes an advertisement, not a gift & no one wants it)

DO THIS

  • Use gifts to surprise, delight & appreciate VIP’s.
    (strengthen your connections, with no strings attached gifts) 
  • Laser focus on a select list of VIP’s, not everyone.
    (the ROI on selected VIP’s is far greater than ‘gesture gifts’ to all)  
  • Give useful, personalised gifts of the highest quality.
    (they’ll remember and talk about you often (a.k.a organic referrals) 

OUR 5 STEP PROCESS

  1. Identify – Who makes a real difference to your business.
  2. Budget – How much should you re-invest to protect & grow profit.
  3. Profile – What are your VIP’s likes / dislikes / interests?
  4. Curate – Source & personalise the perfect gifts.
  5. Execute – A complete end to end fulfilment & logistics service.

10 x TIPS to make a difference to your business

  • Gift’s should have usefulness in mind. Think practical luxury items so they use it a lot and ultimately recall your business favourably.
  • Only send gifts to surprisedelight or appreciate VIP relationships. Nothing else.
  • Focus on a select list of VIP’s, not every customer or every employee.
  • Send multiple gifts, not single gifts. It increases the likelihood of giving a gift they (or their partner) love.
  • Don’t be afraid to be RIDICULOUSLY generous. It’s not always needed, but if you’re authentic & expect absolutely nothing in return, a quality gift will pay off in the long-term.
  • Send gifts when no one is expecting it to really stand out from the crowd.
  • Avoid ‘one use’ gifts & never send just food & beverages. 
  • Cash or gift cards are complete no, no’s. Frankly – it’s just lazy…
  • NEVER put your logo on gifts. No VIP wants a gift with an advertisement on it. 
  • ALWAYS include handwritten cards with a personal message (your logo can go here). It’s more meaningful than you think.

FAQ's & Tips

Internationally acclaimed expert John Ruhlin from Gift-ology explains it well.

“It happens when you create a moment in time, not some stupid gift card, but a gifting experience that’s so powerful it creates a spike of emotion. It’s not the thought that counts… it’s the truly THOUGHTFUL thought.”

“Once you have a deep, meaningful emotional connection it can never go  backwards. Studies have shown that our emotional memory is deeper and longer lasting than our rational memory.”

When you make people FEEL something through a gift, it changes the relationship forever.

Most business leaders only send ‘A-B-C gifts’ (Anniversaries, Birthdays & Christmas).

A couple a major problems with this is :

  1. That’s when everyone else sends gifts too – so it’s really hard to cut through the noise.  
  2. It doesn’t come with any emotional benefit of surprise, delight or appreciation. Sending gifts when they least expect it will stand out as special.

When it comes to choosing the right gift, we have a long list of do’s and don’ts. Here are a few of our non-negotiables. 

  • Determine the personality profile of the recipient. We each have a unique personality and understanding this can be really beneficial. (we’ve built a tool to do just that) 
  • No matter what the gift is, it has to be of the highest quality. It can not feel cheap or lazy – ever (a.k.a ‘don’t buy a gift card’).
  • It has to have a strong element of usefulness for the recipient & ideally, something they will use often.
  • Forget gifting one off consumables like, food, alcohol, flowers. They need to remember you over and over again – consumables are gone in a blink.
  • Is the gift aligned to the value this relationship brings to your business?
  • Does it pass the Pub test? Does it truly feel like an awesome gift they’d really want?
  • Is the timing right? Are they going to feel surprised, delighted or appreciated when they receive the gift?. In no way, shape, or form can it feel like a ‘you owe me something’ gift. It has to be authentic.

Traditional corporate gift companies focus on the cost of the gift and convincing you WHAT the gift might be.  

We ignore this to begin with and focus on WHO the gift is for

So, the first thing you need to do is create a list of potential VIP’s. Not everyone you interact with impacts your bottom line in the same way. You need to be ruthless. You can’t simply put every employee, client and referral partner on the list. 

Strategic Gifting expert, John Ruhlin says “strategic gifting is all about playing favourites“.
