How To Use Branded Advent Calendars in Your Marketing Efforts

Everyone loves advent calendars. No matter how old we get, they offer a sweet reminder of our childhood and never fail to bring out a sense of excitement on the lead up to Santa’s big day.

While countless companies are creating new, alternative advent calendars every year offering everything from beer to beauty products, there’s truly nothing sweeter than a traditional 25-day chocolate advent calendar. They provide a simple yet delicious way to celebrate the countdown to Christmas.

Here are three reasons why you should include branded advent calendars as part of your marketing and outreach this holiday season.

1. They’re a great way to say thank you

Chances are it’s already company policy to send out gifts each holiday season, be it to your suppliers, shareholders, staff or top clients. But, let’s face it — yet another corporate Christmas card crowding their desks is not going to make the positive impression you want.

Chocolate advent calendars personalised with your company’s logo offer a great way to show seasonal appreciation to your most important stakeholders. And, it’s a gift that keeps on giving:  a 25-day branded (and delicious) reminder of how much you value their support.

2. They never go unused

An advent calendar is one branded Christmas gift you can be sure your recipients won’t just throw in the trash. After all, you can never have too much chocolate (even at Christmas time).

The Sweet Team’s advent calendars use only the finest solid Belgian milk chocolate, so you can rest assured that your recipients will have one taste and be hooked. Our chocolate is also suitable for vegetarian, kosher and halal diets.

3. They make perfect holiday giveaways

If you’re looking for a little something to spice up your seasonal marketing efforts, branded advent calendars make for an excellent holiday-themed giveaway.

Run a social media competition allowing fans to win an advent calendar, or give them out to customers who make a minimum purchase in-store. Branded advent calendars also make a great addition to holiday gift baskets, and can even be offered as part of a raffle prize for a charitable fundraiser. The marketing opportunities go as far as your imagination will take them.

If you think branded advent calendars could be right for your company’s marketing efforts this holiday season, we can help. The Sweet Team (a division of The Branding Team) offers traditional 25-day advent calendars, desktop advent calendars, and unique 12-day advent calendars — each ready to be personalised with your company’s artwork alongside our delightful seasonal designs.
