        Possible ways to reward clients

        • Certificates
        • Trophies
        • Crystal awards
        • Plaques

        What makes a Good Recognition Award

        Elements Of A Good Customer Recognition Award

        When designing your customer recognition awards, be sure to keep quality in mind. Shoddy or poorly designed awards will leave the customer with a negative impression of your company. Here are a few tips for good award design:

        • Legibility. Having an award your clients can read is essential to getting the message across.
        • Correct. Misspelling the client’s name can be highly embarrassing and may offend the client.
        • Attractive. Your reward should be a plaque, trophy, statue or certificate your clients will be proud to show in their homes or offices.
        • Safety. Your customer recognition awards should be made of quality materials and be safe.

         

         

         

        Work With A Designer

        A company dedicated to creating award statues, plaques, etc. can help you design the right awards for your specific customer base. They can help you avoid common mistakes in design and ensure that you create an award that will be cherished by its recipients.

        Incorporate It Into A Loyalty Program

        Providing clients and customers with recognition awards over the holidays may be more effective if you roll the awards into a loyalty program. By combining an awards program with a program that provides discounts and special offers you can enhance the effectiveness of both. Gallup Poll research shows that loyalty programs must engage and activate customers to be truly effective. Adding holiday recognitions to the program gives you another avenue to reach your customers.

        Cost Effective RecognitionCost Effective Rewards

        Making a bulk order of custom awards will typically be more cost-effective than just buying a few awards. It will give you the opportunity to reach more customers and discounts may be offered for bulk orders.
