Free Gift with Purchase
As a business owner, marketing is a never-ending job. You need ways to bring in more business and/or create brand loyalty. While customer service and top-quality products go a long way, so do free gifts. We all remember the businesses that give us something, even if it’s something small, right?
Why not make it something fun, like flip-flops?
So which businesses benefit from giving away flip-flops? Honestly, any business can, but here are a few of the most popular:
- Nail salons – All nail salons use flip flops, but if you want to encourage clients to purchase a more expensive pedicure, offer a free pair of quality flip flops with purchase. Your clients will receive a branded pair of flip-flops that they’ll likely wear elsewhere, which provides you with more marketing potential.
- Hotels – Flip flops make a great gift for large gatherings at hotels, such as conferences, seminars, or as a ‘girls getaway package.’ Create packages with flip-flops as a part of the gift. Your guests will likely wear them again, offering more branding for your hotel.
- Swimsuit shops – Swimsuit shops are a natural for free flip flops with purchase. Set a specific dollar amount and let your shoppers earn free flip-flops with their swimsuits. Most people wear flip-flops all summer long, so they’re bound to do more marketing for you throughout the summer.
- Clothing stores – Use flip-flops as a free giveaway with a specific dollar amount of a summer clothes purchase or as an incentive to sell a specific brand or even one item. Shoppers love free gifts, so it brings attention to that item which may result in a sale now or at least bring more awareness to it and increase future sales.
- Sporting events – Are you having raffles at your sporting events or trying to get people involved in contests? Flip flops make a great giveaway. You can brand them with the team’s name, or have them sponsored by another company involved in the event for some free marketing.
- Travel agents – Are you trying to drum up more business after the pandemic slowed things down? Free gifts go a long way, even if it’s a token item. Consider branding flip-flops for your current clients or anyone that books a new trip with you.
Flip flops are a popular party favor for many parties. Have a little fun and personalize flip flops for your event, such as:
- Weddings – Who hasn’t been to a wedding only to wish they’d brought different shoes? Women experience this almost every time they attend a wedding. What better way to thank your guests for coming than with flip-flops when they attend your reception? Personalize them with your new married name and have a little fun!
- Birthday parties – Are you having a big birthday party? Maybe a Sweet 16, 40th birthday party, or any other big milestone? Flip flops make a great ‘thank you for coming gift’. Personalize them with the guest of honor’s name and reason for the celebration for a personal favor that everyone is bound to use.
- Large picnics – Are you having a big picnic? Family reunions, birthdays, and company picnics are just a few reasons people love to get together in the great outdoors. Flip flops make a great party favor that many guests will wear right then and there. Is your picnic near the beach or a pool? Flip flops fit in with the theme.
Kids Events and School
Kids love personalized gifts. Rather than t-shirts, why not give away personalized flip-flops? They are great for just about any event or institution including:
- Schools – Make school spirit day even more fun with personalized flip-flops. The kids will love having their school name and mascot on their flip-flops that match their school t-shirts. It’s something they can wear repeatedly, especially throughout the summer. Kids love to show off their school pride – let them do it uniquely.
- Camps – Kids at camps get wet, muddy, and dirty. Having an extra pair of flip-flops in their backpacks helps keep them comfortable. Brand the flip flops to match their camp T-shirt. Not only do they help the kids in a time of need, but they also give you more advertising power bringing more awareness to your camp.
- Sports teams – Are you in charge of a child’s sports team? Are you looking for unique ways to raise money? Sell branded flip-flops? These are just for the kids. Parents will love them too. How many moms and dads do you see wearing team t-shirts and hats? Take it a step further with flip-flops and add to the fun!
Flip flops make a great giveaway at tradeshows too. If you want to stand out from the crowd, flip-flops do the trick. Even if you don’t want to give a pair out to everyone, have a spinner at your table, with flip-flops as a prize. Attendees love spinners, which brings more attention to your table.
Use the time you have your audience to talk about your products and create more awareness. Use flip-flops as one of the ‘big prizes’ and bring more people to your tent. It’s a great marketing tactic, especially when other attendees see people walking around with flip-flops. They’ll see your tent out, wanting to know more.
Flip flops are great for business and personal use. They bring more brand awareness and help individuals celebrate their day in a big way. Recipients love them, whether they’re branded with a company’s name or personalized for a special event, like a wedding or birthday.
Everyone loves memories and flip-flops provide just that. They remind guests where they were when they received the flip-flops. If they are for a business, they bring your business to the forefront of their mind, which may result in future sales. If they are a gift from a special event, they bring more memories of the special day – something everyone loves.
