New Quixtar Ribbon Gift and Incentive Program Offers Great Business Building Opportunities says Fred Harteis of IBOAI


“A recent survey shows that 83 percent of companies use gift certificates or cards in their incentive programs.” – Fred Harteis.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 13, 2007 – Sixty-seven percent of employers spend between $25 and $150 on gift cards or certificates according to a recent survey by Incentive Magazine. Nearly 70 percent of survey respondents thought that gift cards or certificates were as or more effective than cash. “This is great news for our members, Quixtar Independent Business Owners (IBOs), who are building their gift and incentive businesses,” says Fred Harteis of the Independent Business Owners Association International (IBOAI).

The Ribbon Gift and Incentive Program is an easy, convenient way for businesses and individuals to give the gift of choice. “It’s also a great way for Independent Business Owners to capture their share of the $253 billion gift and incentive industry,” adds Fred Harteis.

“Whether you’re a Human Resource Manager looking for a way to reward employees, a real estate agent seeking a special way to thank your clients, or a mom who is at a loss as to what to get her picky teenager for his birthday, the Ribbon Gift and Incentive program has what you’re looking for,” notes Fred Harteis.

“The Ribbon Gift and Incentive Program starts with a collection of 21 gift cards and albums filled with name brand products ranging in value from $25 - $750. Collections are organized by themes targeting a variety of age and interest groups, so there is always something for everyone,” says Harteis. “There are seven general gift collection albums offering an impressive array of name-brand products from electronics, to kitchen appliances, to home décor and more.”

“Eleven specialty gift collections are designed specifically for particular interests, lifestyles and events, such as a new baby or a wedding. This collection includes two name-brand exclusive albums, the Ghirardelli® collection for chocolate lovers and the Cuisinart® collection of kitchen gifts and appliances,” continues Fred Harteis. “And three vacation package collections provide recipients accommodations at popular destinations across the U.S., Canada and Mexico.”

“The gift recipient can choose their gift by reviewing the gift options in their gift album or viewing selections online. Once they’ve selected their gift, the recipient logs onto and follows the easy step-by-step instructions to order his or her gift, which is then mailed directly to his or her home free of charge,” explains Harteis.

“Ribbon Gift & Incentive program is available exclusively from our association members, Quixtar Independent Business Owners,” says Fred Harteis.
