Golf Promotional Products

Promotional golf gifts are a fantastic way to present branded products in an environment which perfectly blends business and pleasure.

Whether it’s a simple bag of branded tees or luxury multi-item presentation box, there are many options available to suit all budgets.

The golf course is a great place for brand visibility: “The best thing about golf gear is that all products have a long life; people will keep them, and use them, long after the golf day so they offer great value for ongoing brand exposure.”

Promotional Gym Merchandise to Strengthen Your Brand

If there is one corner of the market that has huge potential, it is the Fitness market.

At Partridge we have supplied clothing, merchandise and much more to many gyms and fitness centres, both local and further afield.  

If you own a gym then you need branded merchandise and at Partridge Peartree we can supply you with everything you need to promote your business.

Clothing

Fitness wear make up a huge percentage of the merchandise purchased by members. Hoodies, t shirts, leggings, towels, bags, caps, beanies, sweatshirts, vests…  the list is endless! We have a wide range of garments available, both for men and women. You will be surprised at how many people will want to buy clothing branded with your logo. 

This is also a great way to increase your brand awareness and what better way to avail of it than having your very own members promoting your business and brand.

At Partridge we can offer screen print and embroidery in house. Both standard branding processes with excellent results. Recently we have been starting to get involved with dye sublimation, a process of full colour branding on polyester garments with gives a fantastic result.

Drinkware

Another part of the merchandise on offer is drinkware. Water bottles, thermal mugs, ceramic mugs, protein shakers. Again, the amount of products on offer is huge and the branding areas on these products is substantial, giving your brand plenty of room to be seen.

Tech

Power banks, either wired or wireless. They are the newest product and new improved models released steadily with larger capacity and faster charging times. As many people now basically live their lives through their phone, you can supply them with a high end powerbank that will charge their phone or device while they are at the gym or on the move. Coupled with your logo this will ensure that your brand get full exposure.

Contact Marc at Partridge Peartree to discuss all the options and ideas for promoting your brand.

 

How To Choose The Right Promotional Products To Market Your Business

Effective choices are based on clear objectives

What, exactly, do you want your promotional products to achieve? Obviously, you want to increase your company’s visibility but to what end and, in particular, for how long? For example, if you are launching a new product and want to get the word out on the street quickly to generate interest which you hope will feed into your sales funnel, then you probably want to look at a low-cost, high-visibility product your customer will “use and lose”.

Confectionery is probably the best choice here and you can keep costs down by using packaging intended for immediate recycling. This can still look very attractive and can be used to hold key details, such as your website. If, on the other hand, you’re looking to keep your company in the mind of important contacts over the longer term, then you need to find something they will either use regularly or will enjoy looking at over the long term (the ideal would be both). If you have the budget, you could go for useful items such as premium office accessories.

If, however, you want to keep costs down, then the number one option is generally confectionery in a reusable container. This can also be a diplomatic option since it means that the confectionery part of the gift can be shared with other staff, if the recipient wishes, while they keep the container for storage.

Remember your recipient is a person, not a billboard

Be very careful with the likes of promotional clothing and bulkier bags. You may like the idea of having your company logo carried about everywhere the recipient goes but they might not agree and might prefer to keep the item for occasions when it won’t be seen or just stick it in a drawer and forget about it. Folding bags can be a reasonable option since they are light, easy to carry and very practical since many people now wish to avoid using plastic bags. If you go down this route, however, you will generally want to ensure you use a decent quality cotton tote or something similar rather than a plastic drawstring back as the latter tend to be quite flimsy and therefore not really suitable for shopping.

Runners Complete ‘Couch To 5K’ Challenge In Limavady

Recently Partridge Peartree produced screen printed t shirts for a local running club for a ‘Couch to 5K’ event. Many of which were celebrating on completing their first 5K. We were happy to support them and feel proud to have played a small part in their success!

The Fun Run was held in Roe Valley Country Park on Sunday 25th November.

68 runners took part after finishing the ‘Couch to 5K’ challenge hosted by Northern Velocity & Causeway Coast and Glens’ Borough Council.

The run marked a hugely successful end to the initiative which saw participants cross the finish line after an 11-week training programme.

It was a fantastic event which was very well supported by the runners, their families and the wider community.

The Fun Run had a total of 175 entrees on the day from first time event runners to elite runners, all supporting each other to complete their personal goals.

The ‘Couch to 5K’ programme is open to anyone and is aimed at complete beginners with expert coaching on hand to guide participants through to the end goal of completing a 5K run.

The next ‘Couch to 5K’ programme is due to begin in February 2019

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like to run when I get the chance. So far I have completed 2 half marathons. I hope to do another one.

Why You Should be Using Promotional Products.

The world is full of advertising, which means it only gets harder and harder to make an impact with your promotions. So how can you sidestep the noise and clutter of traditional advertising and connect with your audience? Well promotional products might be the way!

We spend so long looking at screens and walking past advertising hoardings that it becomes second nature to filter out all that extra visual noise while we focus on what needs to be done. But with a physical object, especially if it’s something useful, we can’t help but remember it.

Objects that we interact with regularly become part of our lives. That USB stick with all your files on it. The shopping bag that you take every time you got to the supermarket. That lanyard that you carry your keys around on. And all that creates a positive association with the brands shown on them. In fact as many as 8 out of 10 people say they have positively changed their impression of a brand because of a promotional product! [1]

Half of consumers say that they come in to contact with promotional products most or at all times of the day, and these items are kept around for a long time too. People just don’t throw away useful things. The majority of consumers keep a promotional product between 1 and 5 years, and sometimes a lot longer than that! [2]

Want to get a specific message across? Well promo products can help there too…

Trying a campaign based on music?

How about a branded festival survival kit, including wet wipes, rain poncho and hand sanitiser, all in a re-usable, branded fabric bag?

Launching a new product?

How about a business card USB with images of your product, technical details and even a video demonstration pre-loaded on to it?

Attending an event?

Lanyards are important for all your staff, but don’t forget printed paper bags to contain your information packs! And if you throw in some extra stationery it can really make them useful.

But of course, promotional products aren’t just for targeted campaigns. General, day to day marketing works just as well. Having your logo on retail bags is a given, but now we need to look at sustainable materials too, like paper or fabric. Having pens available in your store or office for visitors to use, and maybe even take away with them, is a simple and effective way to reinforce your brand. Or to bring it right up to date, why not have a branded wireless phone charger on your reception desk for anyone to use?

One thing is for sure. A good promotional product can give you or your client’s brand a positive impression, for a long time, and for a relatively small outlay. That sounds like a big win compared to paying a fortune for views that can easily be lost in a busy social media feed!

Take a look at our promotional product ranges on partridgepeartree.com, and let’s see how we can help make your next campaign better!

Jodi’s Fencing Tournament

Congratulations to Jodi Desmond and the Northern Ireland cadet and junior fencing teams, who took part and  qualified for the Junior Commonwealth Games held in Newcastle in July 2018.

Jodi who was sponsored by Partridge Peartree was taking part in only her second tournament and made a very good account of herself and managed to secure the most points for Northern Ireland in the team event.

The experience gained at the games will prove invaluable to Jodi, and hopefully we will hear more from her fencing exploits in the near future.
