Staying connected to your clients, customers, and employees is challenging when working remotely and practicing good social distancing.
Zoom calls and online presentations are not only dull, but they lack a much-needed human element.
At AlphaGraphics, we developed the agBox that will allow your brand to reach a more profound engagement that will enhance the virtual experience.
What is agBox?
It’s a customized-designed and branded package that you can send to anyone your business interacts with virtually.
It helps them feel more connected to your brand while creating an amazing experience as anticipation builds as they open the box to see what’s inside.
So—what’s exactly inside the box?
That’s entirely up to you! Let your imagination run wild as you fill it with anything from promotional products, t-shirts, goodies, and printed marketing materials. Read on to learn more about five great ways that your business can use the agBox in today’s virtual environment.
Now that in-person conferences and face-to-face meetings are taboo, more and more businesses are getting creative and holding virtual talks. However, there’s one small flaw—attendees just don’t get the same experience from watching a Zoom video as they would by attending a conference.
You can use an agBox to create a conference-in-a-box—and fill it with the usual schwag, such as:
- Printed marketing materials
- USB flash drives
The more creative you get, the more memorable the experience will be for those who attend your virtual conference.
A huge part of corporate culture is taking a breather and getting to know your fellow employees. Just because everyone is working remotely doesn’t mean the parties have to stop! A party-in-a-box sent out to all remote workers can help accentuate a birthday, anniversary, or another company milestone.
A party-in-a-box is also a great way to recognize the achievements of internal teams that have accomplished something. For example, maybe your sales team had their best quarter ever—despite the challenges of selling remotely. You can mail out a box with some branded sunglasses and other gifts to recognize their achievements.
Holiday parties are probably a no-go this year—and even if you decide to go ahead and throw one, there’s a good chance many workers won’t attend due to social distancing concerns. A holiday-in-a-box party can contain holiday-themed items that will allow people to get in the spirit as you virtually host your company holiday party.
You can even write on your box “Do not open until MM/DD!” on the front and sides—this will build excitement and anticipation as they wonder what’s inside. Having your entire team unwrapping their holiday present in unison creates an exciting atmosphere and will significantly help maintain and even improve company morale.
One of the biggest challenges of today is getting hired into a new company—and having to get to know your co-workers and job virtually. A new-hire-in-a-box is a great way to help new employees feel welcome and part of the team. In addition to including the paperwork required by H.R., you can add some branded company products.
Sometimes remote workers will need certain office supplies and tools to do their job effectively. You can include all of that—and have it branded with your company logo. This will allow the new hire to feel like they’re part of the team from their first day on the job.
Outside sales reps are really hurting in these social distancing times. Many of their customers they used to call upon are not allowing sales reps to visit—or if they are—it comes with draconian rules that prevent the sales rep from doing their thing.
Your outside sales reps can bypass this by sending their clients and prospects a sales-in-a-box kit that has everything from hand sanitizer to printed marketing materials. It’s a great way to show appreciation for their continued business and offers a chance to maintain and grow the relationships your outside sales reps have worked so hard to build over the years.
