There are a couple annual celebrations coming up that are always worth celebrating. Mother’s Day is next month and Father’s Day follows the month after. And since people all over Canada will be making their ways into stores and malls to locate gifts for these special occasions, it’s incumbent upon small business owners to come up with ways to attract those extra shoppers. At Canadian POS Corporation, we believe that selling gift cards is the perfect solution!
What makes gift cards beneficial for shoppers? Gift cards are widely known as “go-to” gifts because they literally have the ability to please everybody. Depending on the stores they’re purchased at, of course, gift cards have the ability to give recipients exactly what they want. Therefore, shoppers need not worry about whether or not their gift recipients will actually like the gifts they receive.
Naturally, gift cards give people the ability to go into stores and purchase whatever it is they like. They simply make shopping so much easier. This is especially true if the gift recipient is someone who likes clothing. If you don’t know what style, colour or size a person wears, a gift card from a clothing retailer makes the perfect gift. Gift cards are also awesome choices for food lovers. And let’s be honest. Who isn’t a food lover?
In lieu of being able to take a loved one out to eat, a gift card from a restaurant is the perfect way to please that person on his/her special day. Gift cards also provide solutions for last minute shoppers. We’re all guilty of waiting until the last minute to make that special purchase before the big day comes. Buying a gift card makes the shopping experience one that takes next to no time.
What makes gift cards beneficial for merchants? Consider the fact that gift cards earn you money before your product even leaves your store. The sale of a gift card entails the fact that profits are made whether the card is even used or not. Furthermore, a gift card sale often leads to increased profits when the card is used. More often than not, gift card redeemers spend more than the face values of their gift cards.
Gift cards also represent recommendations. In fact, we don’t know if we can think of a better way to recommend a store than to give someone a gift card that represents it. Giving someone a gift card is the equivalent of saying “you should give this store a try”. It’s often said that word-of-mouth promotion is the best type of promotion you can get for your business. We believe that handing out gift cards is the best type of word-of-mouth promotion there is!
