Tees as Promotional Items

Aug 2, 2008
Branded golf tees can be ideal promotional items. They are small, yet can support up to three lines of text. They are available in many different colours, so you can buy them in your company's logo colours or you can get a rainbow of different ones. They come in bulk, so you can buy them by the thousands and give away enough so that your prospective customers or clients take them by the handful and never run out. Your company's name and logo will be at their fingertips for months or even longer.

Your branded golf tees in their networking areas

One of the benefits of using printed golf tees and other golfing equipment as promotional items is that it connects you to business people in one of their key networking areas. A great deal of business gets done between colleagues and contacts on the golf course, in the leisurely walks between holes, and when it does, your name and your business will be there, right on the tees that business associates use for every shot. Experts advise that you give your potential clients something they will actually use, and promotional golf tees fit the bill nicely for many business people.

Golf has many options

Another benefit of using printed golf tees is that tees are not the only kind of golfing equipment. You also can use golf balls, towels, divot repairers, hats, shirts, bags, gloves, jackets, sunscreen, hand warmers, range finders, even putters and other kinds of equipment to get your name and your business in front of a potential client.

Budget friendly

Then, of course, when you are looking at your marketing budget, fewer items can give you the economical benefits that promotional golf tees do. As mentioned above, you buy them by the thousands, but thousands of branded golf tees only cost a few hundred pounds. Budget-wise, a few hundred pounds to get your company name and logo into the hands of possibly hundreds or more influential business people is an investment you can feel good about.

Good associations

People who play golf do so for many positive reasons. Some do it simply for the networking, which benefits their business. Some do it for the exercise; walking 9 or 18 holes is healthier than sitting still behind a desk all day. Some do it to relax; a leisurely walk over rolling green fields is a better way to do business than the stress of growling across a conference table. Some are competitive; they may be playing with associates for business reasons, but they like to win. Whatever their reasons, they get some kind of pleasure or success, as they define it, from playing golf, and in the middle of all that pleasure and success, they put down tee after tee with your name and logo on it. Before long, your brand becomes part of the positive experience of playing golf, and they see you as being part of their success.
