Wouldn’t it be amazing if your clients actually got the warm and fuzzies from the gifts you give them? Strategic gifting can lead to increased referrals, longer retention, and an elevated client experience. Everyone loves to be surprised and delighted by an unexpected and personalized gift. A gifting system make this relationship building exercise part of your turnkey client experience.

In this episode we learn:

  • gifting without a strategic plan will lead to an inconsistent and lackluster experience for your client
  • quality over quantity is a good motto (the good stuff isn’t cheap, and cheap stuff isn’t good)
  • nobody needs another branded mug; gifts should be personalized and used frequently
  • gifting during non-peak seasons allows you to stand out from the crowd
  • business is about relationship building and gifting is unconditional, there are never strings attached



Focus on the WHO, not the HOW when new opportunities present themselves. Oftentimes we immediately start trying to figure out HOW we will take on a new project or HOW we will deliver a service, but we should focus on WHO we need on our team to take on a new project. Focusing on the HOW places all the pressure on the business owner’s shoulders. Instead, we should be thinking about WHO we can leverage in our network and team to rise to the challenge and happily accept new opportunities.



BOD™ is proud to officially partner with The Prototype. We’d love to invite our members to experience the benefits of a consistent, streamlined, and elevated client experience with the help of The Prototype.
