If you want to improve your prospecting gifts efforts, it helps to remember the phrase, “It is better to give than to receive”.
Top Sales Prospecting Gifts in 2024
With that in mind, giving excellent sales prospecting gifts can help your business get more leads.

A small, thoughtful gift can help open new doors, make genuine connections, and start conversations with your potential buyers which makes them more inclined to purchase your services/products.

Prospecting Methods and Practices

There are two ways of making contact with prospects: Inbound prospecting where clients come to you either by means of advertising or by offering online or social media content that is relevant and desirable to the prospect and; Outbound prospecting which is reaching out to potential customers who might be interested in your product or service.

What should I send to prospects?

It will depend on which method of prospecting you chose. For inbound prospecting, inbound marketing can be a great way to send gifts by using automation to make it seamless. When a prospect finds your services or products via research, they can enter a funnel that will trigger an automatic send of gifts such as eGifts, eCards, lunch cards, or any piece of digital gifts. Even if these gestures are small, they go a long way in establishing an extra connection.

For outbound prospecting, gifting can be used to strengthen the initial connection with a potential client after a phone conversation, email reply, or discovery call. It can also be a follow-up to a successful connection. But the key to a successful sales prospecting gift is by sending a small, well-personalized gift that invites your prospect to see themselves as a valued client, not just another name on a list.

How can I make sales prospect gifting fun?

Personalization! While it’s important to have a budget, what you’ll send will depend mostly on the type of contact you made, and the value of the connection you’re trying to strengthen.

That’s why the power of personalization comes into place since it can create a significant difference once they receive it. There are plenty of ways to personalize sales prospecting gifts, and a good point to start is to look for more information about them - their likes, their hobbies, or their favorite things. You can look for hints on social media platforms like these:

LinkedIn for professional interests or organizations they belong to.

Instagram for travel destinations, sports, pets, or family.

Twitter for their life and general interests

You can also search them through Google if they have any publications or appearances such as conferences, articles, books, etc. Checking if you have mutual connections through different platforms can also help in breaking the ice.

Personalized Gift Ideas

Once you find a personal connection with your prospect, personalizing a gift will not be difficult.

For the sports fan, a jersey, a hat, or a tumbler will make a great gift. You can also consider giving tickets to a game.

Pet lovers will appreciate fun, branded gifts like tug toys, treats, cat nips, and personalized leash or collar sets.

For families, or milestones, a personalized blanket, housewarming gift, household item, or item of clothing makes a good impression.

For the adventurous, you can give items like personalized luggage tags, and tech items such as power banks, wireless chargers, and such.
