Physical Prizes

Physical prizes are fantastic for all levels of incentives such as high, medium and lower tier. They can provide excitement and loyalty for current customers by giving them a item to keep.

This excitement can also lead to winners increasing brand awareness further through social media. For example, it’s becoming increasingly popular for winners to share a picture of their prize on social platforms or for Youtubers to create unboxing videos of their gifts. This can then lead to current customers attracting their friends and followers to either enter the competition themselves, follow the brand by increasing their subscribers and support with increasing future sales.

Physical prizes also provides the opportunity for your brand to personalise the prize items, for example with your brand name/logo. This can offer brand incentives such as future free advertising, for example branding on clothing and shopping bags which keeps the brand at the forefront of people’s minds.
