Practical Tips for Maximising your EOFY Budget 

Before setting out your EOFY promotional plans, it’s important to have all your bases covered to ensure the campaign is on the right track. Here are some practical tips on making the most out of your EOFY budget. 

  • Plan Ahead — Start planning your EOFY strategy in advance to create an effective promotional gifting strategy. Identify your goals, target audience, and the kinds of items that would resonate the most with them. 
  • Negotiate with Suppliers — It can be a busy time for suppliers at the end of the financial year, but this can also be a great chance to negotiate for better prices or bulk discounts. Suppliers you have built relationships with can be more willing to give exclusive offers and better deals.
  • Monitor Trends — Gifting can have the opposite effect if your audience gets a gift that they don’t like. Stay updated on the current trends in promotional products to ensure they are getting trendy, functional, and desirable items. This increases the chance that the items will be used and appreciated, working wonders for your brand. 
  • Order in Bulk — Bulk purchases are great since they can significantly reduce the cost per unit, letting you stretch your budget further. When narrowing down items, make sure to consider items that have wide appeal so you can order in bulk. 
  • Measure and Analyse Results — Once the promotional items have been distributed, gather the data and feedback from select recipients to measure your campaign’s impact. Analysing results helps you understand what works and informs your future campaigns.
