What we like about Somersby Cider’s seasonal gift with purchase ?

  • Product series– Cider and glass is a package. When drinking the cider, customers will need a glass. Thus, Somersby Cider meets customers’ need and build relationship with them.
  • Logo– Logo is important in building brand awareness. After the customer used the glass for a long time, they will remember the brand’s logo and name. ODM can help create or develop your brand’s logo. Check the blog here: Custom Logo Design – Sarobag case study. 
  • Limited quality product– Seasonal gift is different than the usual promotional products. They are offered for a specified period of time. Somersby Cider’s glass is limited offer in Winter. Thus, not everyone can get the same glass as gift with purchase on ordinary days.

For winter seasonal product, here is an example. The below product is a great promotional stint for Christmas.
