When looking for new clients for your business, simply dropping off your business card is no longer enough. Regardless of the industry, you are in, be it real estate, web design, insurance, or medical supplies (You could even be trying to sell seawater to a jellyfish), a lot more effort is required of you than someone in sales 10 years ago. You need to come up with interesting ways to capture and keep their attention, in order to remain relevant in their minds. This is important in a world where competition is stiff and you can be sure that someone else is trying for the same demographic that you are.
The big question becomes, how do you stay relevant in a fast paced world where they are likely to forget about you the moment you walk out the door? Well, start by looking the part. You will be taken more seriously when you look like you know what you are doing. Next, deliver a kick ass presentation. Whether you have a minute in the lift with them or an hour in a boardroom, be precise, to the point and factual as well. Finally, go for the follow-through. The best way to do this is getting a hamper delivered to them at work. The trick here is that you do not overwhelm them with the things you want them to buy, but to create a balance between the things they like and material about you and your product. For instance, if you were to send a gift hamper with a box of chocolates and brochure, they are more likely to take time going through your brochure.
Here are a few hampers that you can add to your bag of tricks after making a sales pitch.

If you are looking to make an impression that is not only lasting but of incredible taste, then this is the hamper you should consider.
