    Brilliant for Salesforce

    What is Brilliant for Salesforce?

    Brilliant for Salesforce is an end-to-end solution to storage and distribution of branded merchandise, all without leaving Salesforce. Brilliant for Salesforce allows your team to engage prospects and clients with timely gifts completely through your regular Salesforce interface.

    Well-executed physical gifts cut through the digital clutter, helping account executives and salespeople grab attention, cultivate leads, close deals, strengthen relationships, and increase retention.

    Brilliant for Salesforce includes creative development of gift packages, full-service warehousing and fulfillment for your goods, plus access to merchandise through Salesforce, making it easy and intuitive for your team to send gifts, track status, and understand relevant metrics.

    Your Salesforce users simply choose a lead or contact, select a gift to send, customize the gift message, and hit “Send.” We'll handle the rest.
