Regardless of whether you are a new user of gift cards or a seasoned veteran, introducing new marketing ideas can be good for business. It’s so easy these days to customize your gift cards with designs that coordinate with your Brand.
Businesses can always add some colour and new themes to marketing campaigns and to give their cards the exposure they deserve everywhere in-store and online. For example:
- At checkouts and registers
- At hostess stands in restaurants and cafes
- In dressing rooms in retail clothing stores
- On receipts as a reminder that gift cards are available as preferred gifts
Offer a Gift Card for Minimum Purchases
By offering a gift card to customers for spending a certain amount, customers have an incentive to spend whatever it takes to meet the gift-card minimum. They’ll often add an extra item or two to reach the minimum spend amount, even if they can’t use the gift card for the current purchase.
Donate Gift Cards to a Local Charity Raffle
Generate some goodwill and do some good at the same time. Charities raffle off the cards and promote your name in all of the marketing materials. You’ll get the benefit of their mass marketing while increasing exposure for your business. Raffle winners equal new customers! Use the free advertising to add new names to your marketing list by including sign-up information in the mailings.
Email Existing Customers Announcing Your Custom Gift Cards
Email is one of the fastest and least expensive ways to reach everyone on your mailing list. Send out a targeted email a few days before your gift card launch date and the big shopping holidays coming up. Offering gift cards also helps you add new customers to your mailing list. You can target people who want to find gifts quickly and easily.

Use Social Media to Promote Your Cards
You can rely on your current customers and followers to share the news that you’re offering gift cards for sale or as a promotional reward for purchases totalling a certain amount. You can also increase visibility by purchasing paid ads on all platforms. Social media companies have already done the work of targeting clients for you and getting your paid promotion in front of them. Once an influencer shares your post, you’ll have an instant following.
