Promotional Packaging for the Holidays

The holidays are coming up quickly! What's your promotional packaging strategy? No, not for customers... But to show appreciation to your employees?

That's right, we're seeing more and more companies shower their employees with appreciation and recognition. Whether it's part of their retention strategy during this "Great Resignation" or business as usual, keeping workers around is (not surprisingly) a goal of some promo packaging.  

Promotional Packaging Aids Employee Retention

The holidays (or year end break, as some companies prefer to refer to it as) is the traditional time period to give gifts. Whether that means bonuses, luxury items or some other token of appreciation. But, as we said above, employees are quitting their jobs in all industries to pursue a career change or pivot completely. So it might pay off to share the love sooner rather than later. 

At Sunrise, we can help. Our two piece setup boxes are the perfect gift box. With our ability to utilize digital lamination for fast printing and wrapping, we can help you implement a branded recognition strategy quickly.

Resignation to Retention

Still not sure you believe us about how appreciating your workers can help them stick around? Here's a bit from a recent Inc. article

More importantly, workers simply want to be recognized; in fact, according to bonusly.com, 63 percent of those in a recent survey who said they are regularly recognized also said they are very unlikely to look for a new job. Workers want organizations that understand that hybrid work requires management to communicate more, not less. They want their boards and HR departments to finally awaken to the fact that narcissism is a malignancy and that bullies have no business managing other human beings.

This is a big opportunity for companies to make a difference in the lives of their employees and create a better, more sustainable work culture. Sunrise can help - reach out when you're ready!

High End Packaging for Real Estate

Short supply and high demand is a recipe for a crazy housing market. Particularly as more and millennials start to dip their toes into home ownership. It can be daunting for mortgage brokers, homebuilders, and realtors to find ways to make an impact on this tech-savvy, immediate-results generation of homebuyers. Utilizing tools, like social channels featuring high end packaging, is one way to reach people.

In this Uber & DIY-focused economy, brand loyalty and expertise counts for less than it did in the past. For a business like realty, which are hugely relationship-based, this means that their basic marketing model needs to change. Referrals are still a big way to gain business, but reaching out on various mediums is another way to gain interest. It's the online shopping effect. We see something we like, we tap on it and can buy it.

Obviously, real estate doesn't work *quite* like that. But check out Carrington Creek's Insta, and tell me you're not enticed to learn more about these gorgeous homes. Particularly that signature Welcome Home box.

High End Packaging for High End Homes

Carrington Creek (located in Arkansas) is a homebuilder focused on building relationships as well. They've won multiple awards for quality, customer satisfaction, realtor excellence, and more. And when we began work on a special project for them, we knew it was going to be a special collaboration.

High end packaging always presents interesting challenges. At its heart, the best packaging utilizes simple design techniques. But the unique features are where we like to make it truly high end, the little touches that speak to a users tactile or visual senses. For this project, we used offset printing and a scuff free matte lamination.  This box is as sturdy as the homes they build, and just as classic with monochrome coloring. With spot UV over the logo, this is a box that pops. Maybe not as much as that champagne, but it's a coordinated effort!

Use Custom Packaging as Part of a Targeted Marketing Strategy

These welcome boxes are gorgeous on every level. They're highly Instagrammable, prominently featuring the logo, and create a true connection with the homebuyer. It's clear that this is a celebratory gift while still being functional.

But it's still part of a marketing strategy. If you're homebuilding organization or realty company is looking to put that extra panache into your marketing tactics, reach out to Sunrise to sketch out your own welcome kit!
