Sending your products out for delivery, either through a Same Day Courier Slough company such as UK-tdl.com or through another postal method, is an incredibly exciting time. It is also an opportunity for you to add something extra to your packaging or package them in such a way that your customers feel special. There are a number of different ways that you can achieve this.

Branded packaging – there are lots of different ways that you can add branding to your packaging. You can have boxes designed with your logos or imagery printed on them, or if you prefer, you can include tissue paper inside the box that is branded instead. Depending on the items you are sending, you might want to look at stickers to hold the tissue paper around the products. These are another great way that you can add some branding to your products.

Inserts – personal touches can help to build brand loyalty and also encourages your customers to recommend you to others. This can be something as simple as a little card that thanks your customers for shopping with you or a postcard that lets them know of any sales or new products that you have coming up. You can also use them as a way to encourage your customers to follow you on your social media channels.

Special offers – adding a coupon to your orders can be a great way to encourage your customers to purchase from you again. Make sure you think about the expiry date on the coupons carefully, as your customers are likely to be very annoyed if you offer them a money off coupon that expires in a month after their original purchase. You can also include incentives such as money off for recommending a friend.

Added gifts – there are many companies that will add in a little gift for their customers. For some, this might be a small priced item from their collection for orders over a set amount and for others, it could be a small packet of sweets for every order. It is a great way to get your customers talking about your business in a positive way. These added gifts can be advertised on your website, or you might want to consider leaving them a little surprise for when your customer opens their package.
