The Christmas season can be a difficult time for many people. It often is a time that accentuates when people seem to be struggling. Business owners can be tricky people to shop for. If you have a business owner in your life and you are unsure of what you could possibly get for them to show you care, here are some great ideas that they will most definitely love, appreciate and find useful.
Bring The Business To Them
The best gift that you could give a business owner is more business! Bringing in more customers to their business will not only will monetarily help them immediately, but it could also potentially create new life long customers which is invaluable. There are many ways that you can do this. You could simply share their current deals and specials on social media and encourage your friends to purchase from them. Sharing a personal story with your post about why you feel their business is the best, will help this go a long way. You can also talk to your friends individually and encourage them to get into the business store front.
Create A Flier
Businesses will almost never say no to advertising for them. You could create a unique flier for their business, get as many printed as you are willing to afford, and pass out the fliers door to door. You could also take the flier to other businesses. Many businesses such as restaurants or fast food places will have a bulletin board where others go to promote their events or specials.
Trade Show Displays
If you are willing to spend the big bucks, a trade show display is something that many businesses do not invest in because of its price but is something that could help their business double in size very quickly. If you can find a good deal or buy a portion of a display, your business owner will be able to attend a trade show to get their name out there with the best of them. Trade show displays are also very versatile in the fact that they can be used almost anywhere, and not just at trade shows. They can be used inside the shop, or can be used as a pop-up at something like a farmers market. It will help your friend’s business to display demonstrations or samples.
Buy Billboard Space
Depending on your budget and where you live, billboards can vary greatly on the price. Sometimes you can get a good deal on them. If you can get a hold of a billboard that is digital, you can typically get a good deal on it because the billboards can cycle through many ads on one board. Getting your loved ones brand or business out there will be a gift that is incredibly thoughtful, yet very useful. It can also be expensive to pay someone else to design your billboard ad, so if you do it yourself, it is actually fairly easy and will save you money.
If your business owner friend has been a business owner for quite some time, their signs may start to appear weathered. There are many types of signs you can choose from whether it is their main sign, or a sign that can stick into the ground. Extra signage is a thoughtful gift that will show you took their business into consideration, but does not have to be incredibly expensive. The more signage a business has, the better it will always be better. They will always want their brand and name to be seen as often as possible.
