Gift Basket Ideas
Folks in the custom gift basket business know that certain times of the year (Christmas, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, etc.) are especially busy. How about creating some promotions for not-so-hectic times of the year? These could include:

  • New Home Buyer Basket for Real Estate Agents - could include light bulbs, batteries, and other essentials that new home owners tend to forget during a move.

  • St. Patrick's Day (March 17) - could include traditional Irish soda bread, jams, shamrock plants and other reminders of a special day in the minds of most Irish-Americans.

  • National Boss Day (October 16) - a basket of goodies for the leader who makes a difference.

For more ideas, check out the ANY DAY site for info on historic events, holidays and birthdates that occurred on a selected day of the year.

Keep 'Em Coming Back
Keep 'Em Coming BackMeeting deadlines is critical for any business owner, but it is also great marketing! One business owner we know sets realistic deadlines, but also adds one day in his calculations. He always delivers the job the day before it's promised, which delights his clients and keeps them coming back for more.

Five Important Words That Keep 'Em Coming Back
One of the most successful fast food restaurants in our area keeps 'em coming back with great service and 5 words. Every time a customer receives his/her order at the drive-thru window, the cashier smiles and sincerely states: *Thank you. See you tomorrow.* A positive reminder that keeps 'em coming back.
