1. RAK Days

Firstly, we’re huge lovers of RAK Days (Random Acts of Kindness before you get too excited!). Ever since we’ve launched we’ve held as many RAK Days as we possibly could. First of all, we head out first thing in the morning and post a little ‘code’ through peoples doors which invites them to enter their four-digit code on our Facebook page. As a result, when they arrive at work the first thing they do is enter our code. We thank them and finally, pop back to the work with a little gift such as a pack of biscuits, a coffee run or even pizza for the team. Check out some of the pictures from our last RAK day right here.

2. Record a Birthday video message from the whole team.

A video is a powerful way to say thank you and engagement levels are through the roof with this form ofmarketing. Everyone loves a good video, so why not get involved and share the birthday message with your followers and fans?

3. Thank your clients

Email your clients a personal thank you. After all its, because of them, you are in business. They’ll really appreciate this and remember why they chose to go with your business in the first place!

4. Have a contest on social media.

Get people excited about your company’s birthday by holding a special contest. Make it easy for lots of people to participate and share the contest with their friends for extra entries- this is a great way to get your business out there a bit more! Don’t forget to give away a special prize to the winner.

5. Serve your building breakfast.

Open extra early for a special party and invite all the other businesses in your building or street to share the birthday love and come together for a tasty treat!

6. Cake!

Seems like the best way to celebrate your company birthdays is to eat lots of cake. Everyone loves cake after all! Invite customers in for a slice. Also if you’ve got a busy reception why not have a cake that you give to people all day long when they turn up to visit people? If you really don’t like cake, how about branded chocolates instead?

7. Reviews are key to business results.

We know that it seems like getting reviews from customers can be hard sometimes. Use your birthday as a way to ask them, in return for a treat (maybe some of that cake mentioned in point 6). Simple and great for boosting your business!

8. Make a donation.

Gift a donation to your company’s charity of choice and publicise it on your social media or blog. Using your birthday or milestone as an excuse to do good will make you feel extra good too!

9. Launch a new website.

Yep – nuts right? But why not have a special birthday website where your clients can come along and take action to win a product. A great example of this is Neil Patel’s spin the wheel. As a result of placing this on his website, he’s generating leads all day long every day!

10. Hold a special event.

Depending on your business, this could be a networking meeting or workshop to gather people at your office. If you run courses (like we do at Delivered Social) why not donate all the proceeds made from that day to a cause for something a little extra?

11. One word – Balloons!

First of all, everyone loves balloons, and they’re the perfect way to celebrate basically any occasion. Peanut Balloons has made it their mission to do weird and wonderful things with balloons and for a little inspiration why don’t you check out some of their air-filled ideas. Worried about the environment?

Whether you email them the link to a helpful video, or just some top tips and tricks, they’re sure to enjoy it, especially if it will help their business!

13. Send a coupon.

You don’t need any physical premises for this to work. Text messages also work, so why not send an offer using this method? Then, you’re sure to get even more customers off the back of your birthday or milestone!

15. Share the news.

Create a blog post or a digital birthday card and post everywhere you can. Be proud of your milestone! If you don’t shout about it, nobody else will, so take the opportunity to talk about it all day long!

16. Put something on sale

One of the best ways to celebrate company birthdays is to have a sale. Everyone loves a sale! And, you’re sure to get more business from people who have been eyeing up your products or services for some time, waiting for them to go on sale.

17. Give a product away for free.

Why not post on social media that you are giving away a subscription/service to someone who engages with that post. It’s a great way to celebrate and get some engagement on your social media profiles!

18. Make customers an irresistible offer via social media.

Think Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and more – they’ve all got different audiences. Use them. Make customers an offer they can’t refuse, but make sure to put out a special code to use the offer on social media so it feels really exclusive!

19. Set up a photo board.

If your company is four years old, why not ask your team for pictures of when they were four and create a graphic? Want to take this to the next level? When working on your website, why not change your team page to those pictures for one day only? This is really fun and also a hidden gem for your customers to find.

20. Give customers a promotional gift.

Make sure it’s something useful, and, as a result, your customers will hang onto it. Then, every time they use it, they will be reminded of your presence because it’ll have your logo or name on it!

21. Send customers a gift card.

The goal is to entice them to shop with you. If you don’t use gift cards, then consider sending some coffee vouchers to your key customers instead. They’ll really love this idea and it’s a great way to keep them coming back!

22. Run a Facebook Birthday Ad campaign to promote your birthday and offer.

Your birthday or milestone is a great excuse to run an Ad campaign to celebrate and also get more sales and customers! Target those connected to your brand for maximum impact.

26. Create a fun press release.

Talk about your history and successes, and maybe include a special offer. Get it up on your blog and social media. Maybe even try and get an article into the press to really show off your successes too.

27. Have a special ‘client-led’ raffle.

Ask your clients to donate their services to other clients and raffles them off. It’s a fantastic way of ensuring that your clients all know one another before the awkward Christmas party. Plus, you could donate the proceeds to charity so you’re doing good, too.

28. Celebrate your company birthdays with others

Why not take your clients for an after-work drink? In fact, why not invite the whole town for a drink after work (yep, we’ve done that…). It’s sure to be fun if nothing else!

29. Do a special birthday podcast and maybe, just maybe, get the whole team singing happy birthday.

If you have any real talent (and we’re not talking singing in the shower here) why not make a video too? Even if it’s really, really, bad, it’s going to be a whole lot of fun for everyone!

30. Cake Smashes aren’t just big for 1-year-olds.

Get a cake and a willing member of your team, maybe your founder, tie their hands behind their back and get them to eat the cake. Why not Facebook live for a little extra fun (no swearing!)
