ideavation’s Hole-In-One Guide to Corporate Golf Swag

Golf season is in full swing, which means there is a very good chance you will be called upon to attend a corporate golf outing, either as an organizer or a guest. With the rapid modernization of office life, it’s nice to get back to the land and connect with an old business tradition. It’s also high time to start thinking about your company’s golf swag strategy. Having golf accessories branded with your company logo is too big a marketing and networking opportunity for you to pass up! If you’re not already doing it – why not??

Here are the top two objections we’ve heard, and our responses:

“We don’t golf.”

Well, first of all, never say never. We doubt you would let a big fish client or industry contact pass you by because you claim you “don’t golf!” But even if you never step out on the green yourself, there’s huge value in a lovely gift for clients, employees, or industry friends. You may look into promoting your brand at a golfing event or golfing convention – or you might organize a glow-in-the-dark mini putt tournament. Plus, there’s countless products that can be enjoyed on or off the course.

“It’s a little outside of our budget.”

Okay, yes, we understand why you might feel that way. After all, golfers are a discerning crowd. They tend to know their equipment, and it’s highly unlikely that a low-quality product chosen for its cheapness will find its way into their bag. However, there are tons of cost-effective products out there that can make a huge impact. It’s ok to work within your means, but forgoing branded promo products altogether is tantamount to making your company invisible.

Luckily, there are golf promo options out there that will fit any budget or corporate ethos, and today we’re going to make it as easy as possible for you by narrowing down the big bad world of golf products to our top four customizable picks.
