Freebies

Does your company produce corporate knick-knacks? Ballpoint pens with company logos perhaps, or branded USB sticks, or coffee mugs. Or maybe you print t-shirts. Because if so, I think I’d like to talk to you.

There’s a convention that kick starter contributors receive ‘rewards’ for their money, like those I’ve mentioned above.

Producing a newsmag, I can’t help but think your reward is your subscription to the product you paid for, but I know that’s missing the spirit of the movement.

So how about in return for a donation above and buying that which earns you a defined multi-issue subscription, you get a free gift. But since I’m lousy at buying gifts for other people, here’s my question: what sort of token present(s) should I offer? Answers on a postcard please (or even better, in the comments below).

(And if your company does produce corporate souvenirs, I really do want to here from you, so head over to the Contact section of this website. That said, for the moment I’d ask you to get in touch only if you’re an Irish-based company (north and south) please, since the extra headaches and expense of shipping from abroad are probably beyond the budget.)
