Gift campaigns?

How do you feel about gift campaigns? My company does not yet have a marketing team (also is this common?) so I'm thinking of offering $100 gift card to help spread the word of my product.


Are they successful? Does $100 for 30 minutes really work?

Have you done a gift campaign before?

I think $100 per gift is a high starting point unless youโ€™re very selective with your prospects.ย

hahaha yes, I would but I'm just a sales guy. Would someone in the VP level or above take one is the real question.

I've seen companies do it. In b2c doesn't work because retention is bad. in enterprise, they can't take gifts.

Why would you say retention is bad? I thought that is why CS is here to keep them around ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

you'll get a lot of garbage leads that just want the gift card so you'll end up wasting your time pitching to people that dont want it unless you have very strict guidelines on who is able to get the gift card.

I've sent out actually gifts to try to secure meetings. Whiskey Glass/Decanter sets, Amazon Echos... stuff like that.

Honestly, it wasn't close to being worth it...

I spent close to $700 and closed maybe $360 worth of business?
