Our top picks of Corporate Gift Baskets

Everything you do in a corporate setting makes a statement. Whether it’s the shape of your logo, the colour of your branding, or the way you handle customers, it says something important about your business. While your mission, vision, and organisational strategy are probably more focused on the big things, the little things matter too.

What exactly are these little things? One factor is how you treat your employees.  From a corporate perspective, it’s probably enough to pay their wages on time. But on a personal level, the treatment employees receive at work has a significant impact on their performance. And the better they perform, the bigger your bottom line will be.

Keep your team happy with thoughtful things like benefits, flexitime, help with childcare, and gift hampers. These can become a business tradition. Maybe they can receive hampers on birthdays or other special occasions. And hampers aren’t just for your team members. Key clients can get gift baskets too, as a thank you for their continued business.

In line with maintaining a positive company image, why not combine corporate gifts with charity work?

Effective Ways to Raise Money for Your Charity

Raising money for a charity can be hard work these days, as with so many different charities in existence, it can be hard to get people’s attention and therefore be able to generate enough interest and support. Your best chance is always to try to get creative and be original, and you may find it is easier for your charity to stand out than you may have once thought. The following is a look at some of the ways you can easily and effectively raise money for your charity.

Put a call out

It is vital that everyone knows your charity is in need of money, so before you do anything else, put a call out far and wide asking for donations. You never know who will be willing to donate, and depending on your charity and your networks, the simple act of asking for money can be enough to bring a significant amount flowing in — especially if your charity is well known and respected throughout the community.

A Fun Introduction to Charity Greeting Cards

Using Social Media to Raise Awareness for Your Charity

In today’s interconnected world, social media has become key to any strategy aimed at raising brand awareness, fundraising and reaching out to an audience. Most young people use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or some form of social media as a way to connect with their peers and to stay updated on what is going on in the world. What this means for charities is that if you want to reach out to a younger audience and build a sustainable base of supporters, social media is the way to do it. Here are a few tips to help you navigate and take advantage of this brave new world.

Find your current supporters on social media

It’s harder to start cold and build up supporters when you are a stranger in a strange land. It is much easier if you already know people who can help you get established and connect you to others in the neighbourhood. This applies with social media as well. If you already have a base of supporters in the real world, ask them if they use some form of social media, because most likely, they do. Knowing where your current supporters are concentrated in the social media world can give you a starting point in establishing a presence there. This is where your real-world base can be valuable, as they are connected to a wider network on social media and can help you reach a broader base.
