Get a Hole in One with Branded Golf Products

Last year more than 25 million Americans played the game of golf. Year in and year out, the golf course remains one of the biggest providers of corporate entertainment in our country. Golfing and business events continue to be closely connected because:

  • People of any age can play it.
  • People of widely differing abilities can compete against each other thanks to the handicap system. This makes the game more fun.
  • You only spend a small portion of a four-hour game actually hitting the ball, so there is plenty of time to talk shop.
  • Golf is a fine test of character by rewarding players who remain calm under pressure, never lose their temper and think strategically. These are all virtues in business, too.

With this in mind, spring is here and now is the perfect time of year to take advantage of promoting your brand through golfing events. Whether you plan to host a customer appreciation golf tournament, send prospects to a PGA event, or need employee appreciation gifts, branded golf products are sure to be used, noticed and enjoyed!

Here are some tips to remember while shopping branded golf products:

Game Time

You can’t go wrong by showing off your brand with custom golf balls, ball markers, divots, tees, towels and coolers. These are all useful, tangible products that are necessities to the game. These products will never go out of style and will be used each time you step on the course.

Beyond the Game

While some golf products are must-haves for the course, think about broadening your marketing scope and giving products that can also be used off the course. Logo’ed personal care items, umbrellas, luggage, and outerwear will market your brand long after the golf event is over.  For example, personal care products, such as lip balm and sunscreen, will remain useful for months because no one wants to have burnt lips and ears on the golf course or at any other outdoor activity they may attend afterwards.  Another good example of a product with staying power is logo’ed outerwear. The Advertising Specialties Institute or ASI reported in 2014 that on average, US customers report keeping outerwear for a year and a half. This means you have a walking advertisement for another year or more after the game.  Let’s not forget to mention the popular golf umbrella! These are always received with smiles because they keep players dry and protected from the sun year round.

Branded T-Shirts

5 Ways Branded T-Shirts Sway Opinions & Influence People

Jpaul shirtIf your company doesn’t have a plan to market with branded t-shirts then you are missing out on a powerful and affordable marketing opportunity. Think about the branded apparel you wear personally. You are marketing for a company every time you get dressed. The Advertising Specialties Institute (ASI) reported in 2014 that 48% of U.S. consumers own branded shirts. Not only do nearly half of people own branded shirts, but ASI data also proves that people form positive connections with the company who provides them with the shirt.

Here are 5 distinct ways branded T-shirts sway opinions and influence people:

Walking Advertisements
Why do companies invest in branded t-shirts? Simple. It’s cost-effective, with prices starting in the single digits. Along with being affordable, branded shirts create a following of devoted fans and employees who wear them and become brand ambassadors everywhere they go in the community. As a result, people see your brand and become familiar with it. This is high visibility for a low cost.

Conversation Starters
T-shirts can create a buzz. Simple branded t-shirts often times start a conversation and create interest in your company, cause, or event. The easiest marketing channel you have is through current customers, members, or participants. Leveraging their circle of influence by providing a conversation starter will ultimately expand your audience and reach.

Maybe not so obvious is the personal bond created by a shirt given to a customer, employee, member, or event participant.  ASI reports 57% of U.S. consumers feel more favorable about advertisers who gave them a branded shirt. In turn, this personal bond makes people feel like they are part of your brand. When they feel favorable about your brand,  they talk about it.

Talent Magnet
Most companies will tell you their biggest challenges are creating revenue and recruiting talent. Besides helping market your brand to potential customers, branded t-shirts also give you the added benefit marketing your brand not only to potential customers but potential employees.  Have you ever said to yourself, “if I could only get another Michelle or John.” If so, as an employer you should put a branded shirt on that “Michelle or John”.  After all, like minded people tend to run in circles with similar people. From friends to general acquaintances, your employees have a network of people to expand the reach of your audience. A current employee often refers the best new hires.

Tribal Unity
Bringing a group together for a common cause can be as simple as branded t-shirts. A group of people wearing the same brand symbolizes who is part of the “tribe”, common cause, or company and creates camaraderie within the group. Have you ever participated in an event where your group or masses of people were wearing the same branded t-shirt? No matter if the group is small or large, it creates a high brand impact to any onlookers. So whether the branded t-shirts are for “tribal unity” or marketing, it makes a brand impression either way.

Lasting Legacy
ASI’s study found logoed shirts have an average staying power of 6.3 months. This means you now have an average of 6.3 months of walking advertising, recruiting, and team building wrapped up in a low cost branded t-shirt. Brilliant! To any marketer, brand touch points are a critical component to any prospect lifecycle. The ability for a cost effective marketing piece to last over six months on average is an easy win for marketers.

You’ve been thinking of getting branded t-shirts for your group, employees, clients, members, or cause …after reading this article you’re now convinced it will be worth every penny. Create that team unity you’ve been looking for, launch a new initiative, or honor the members of your cause by giving a gift that makes them feel a part of something powerful.
