Best Chocolate when buying Corporate Logo Chocolate Gifts

As a company that sells logo chocolate corporate gifts all year long, we receive many questions about the taste of the chocolate and the chocolate shelf life.
We decided to put together a continuing series of short question and answer articles in regard to purchasing logo chocolate gifts.

A buyer asks, "What is the most preferred chocolate used when purchasing Corporate Chocolate Gifts"? 

ANSWER: The two preferred types of chocolate are fine Belgian Chocolate and Premium Swiss Chocolate.  Both are a higher grade of chocolate than found in the local supermarket and are also should be available as a Kosher Certified option.  You should be able to purchase all logo chocolate gifts in either milk or dark chocolate and sometimes white chocolate at no additional charge.
A buyer asks, "How long is the shelf life of the chocolate?"

ANSWER: All premium chocolate products should have a shelf life of over 1 year. It is not recommended to refrigerate chocolate, rather simply store the product at room temperature, not over 72 degrees, and keep away from direct sunlight and heating units. 

Some examples of the chocolate corporate gifts that are used for a variety of occasions would be: logo chocolate foil wrapped chocolate coins and foiled squares, chocolate business cards, chocolate wrapper bars and mini chocolate confection boxes make great tradeshow giveaways. 

Another great idea for marketing your business would be to give out full color logo chocolate wrapper bars, where you can include a coupon inside of the wrapper to promote special products or provide discounts to your customers. These would make great promotional give-always either in store or out on sales calls.

A great chocolate corporate gift would be the edible chocolate box- yes, you can eat the box. First, you take off the chocolate top and eat the truffles or confections inside. Then, you break apart the chocolate top and eat it too.  Finally, you break apart the bottom and sides of the box and share it with your co-workers.  If you have never eaten a chocolate box then you really should try it at least once. It is an experience that people will remember and talk about – so if you are looking for a corporate gift that provides the WOW Factor – this is it!

A Sales Contest Happy Ending (Part 3)

This part is the very best. The contest was a huge success. My friend who had encouraged me to run the contest had also promised me an effortless answer to my sales-meeting-blues. He was right! I didn't have to say anything disciplinary to get everyone, and I mean each-and-every AE, in the conference room both early and waiting like eager beavers.

However that was really just the gravy! The real win was the sales increase we accomplished with the contest. If I didn't experience it for myself, I would have never believed the results we attained. Nearly 2/3rds of the AEs hit the top level, and all but a few reached one of the other two levels. Let me translate what that meant in return on the investment terms: $4 to $1.

I can now call myself a believer in sales contests. I run a contest (with a new theme and different objective) at least three to four times a year. You will have fun, your AEs will thank you, and your leadership team will be singing your praises!
