Pure Fitness membership gifts in Hong Kong

Pure Fitness is surely one of the most famous gym and fitness club in Hong Kong and they are currently offering membership gifts to their new customers.

Gym Membership Gift
Pure Fitness "starter pack" gifts
This "starter pack" consists of:
  • 1 x high end water bottle
  • 1 x shoe bag
  • 1 x small pouch (cosmetics, toiletry bag)
  • 1 x non-woven bag
Overall, a membership pack like this one doesn't cost much and is very well perceived by the client. The water bottle, especially, is a very good promotional product to offer with any sport-related promotion. It's visible, useful and people like to carry it around to show that they are member of a fitness club. The more visible the gift is, the more your logo will be seen.

Some other gifts could have been considered instead of the pouch (which we feel doesn't add much value to the set):

  • Hand towel
  • Headband
  • Sweatband
  • Branded earphones
  • Baseball cap
  • Branded red/white laces
  • Thin yoga mat
Any other product idea you'd like to add to this list, leave us a comment!

POS Display for Drinks

Which drink would you buy when confronted with this Fridge?  When choosing your POS Display for Drinks brand managers always look to stand out from the crowd.
POS Display for Drinks
POS Display for Drinks
There is an Acrylic shelf which hooks onto the fridge itself with suction cups.   On this sit lots of plastic mini-shot glasses.   These shots are impulse purchases and positioned just over the more standard beer offering. This display is easy to replenish.

There is great brand visibility and the drinks are stored at a good height for visibility.   We like the black and white logo given the drinks are so colourful in their own right.   A less colourful drink might opt for more colourful artwork and maybe a non transparent acrylic display.

I did try to find the drinks company online to tag them but not really sure how you spell it.   Nevertheless, they are visible where it counts on the shelf.  

What other POS Display for Drinks  have you seen recently and how did it grab your attention?   Also, when is last time you bought a shot drink at a convenience store?

Magnetic Beer Cap Dart Board

Spotted at the Mega Show in Hong Kong, this is one of the coolest ideas we have seen in a while.

Beer Dart Board - Promogift

It is a very simple magnetic board in a beer cap shape with a dart board printing on it. If you throw a beer bottle cap, it will stick to the board.

It's a great alternative to beer pong sets for beer companies, and we all know that the impact of a promogifts campaign is strongly improved if the end-user can "share" the gift with somebody else. The ODM Group (promogift agency in Hong Kong) wrote an article about the importance of offering a gift that helps connecting people together, we strongly believe that this bottle cap dart board could be added to their list.

Customized Lamps for Marketing

How about making some bedside lamps with a difference.  These Customized Lamps for Marketing are touch activated LEDs that look like the real thing but are really only a tiny fraction of the price.   They are almost 2D and can be a great hallway, entrance or emergency night light.

We like these 2D lamps since they have a retro look or feel, but at the same time are so modern due to functionality, cost etc...   Choose from very traditional designs or use the big lamp face as a big surface area for licensing characters to promote films, comics etc..  

We like these as a Promo Gift Idea and below is a wall full of other interesting designs.  You can see Halloween and other seasonal themes too. Create awareness with a light up logo for your special event or charity.   What do you think?

Guest Interview: Andre Noordwijk of BeGlobal Promotions

We recently had the pleasure of interviewing Andre Noordwijk of BeGlobal Promotions and finding out his extensive experiences in the promotional products sector.

PGB: Please tell us a little about BeGlobal and it's origins.
AN: BeGlobal Promotions was founded in 2002 by Myself and Marco Horneman. In that time we were still students and the original plan was to start an import company for promotional glassware. Soon after this we got some other request and started to widen our scope. In the years after we evolved in to a general supplier of promotional items. We received some awards for best Promotional Product for the BikiniAppel (2006) and EspressGo (2014) and were awarded as Promotional Company of the Year of the Netherlands in 2012 and 2013. You can find some more info about our strategy here.

PGB: Facebook, Twitter, Company Blog - Where are you spending most time?
AN: We use a software tool to manage Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. We publish a new innovational product everyday.

PGB: What were some of your hottest selling items last summer?
AN: We noticed an increase in our sales from trading facility. We offer direct sales from China for e.a. USB sticks and Lanyards.

PGB: Any predictions for top selling Christmas Gifts for 2014?
AN: The Dutch tradition is that companies give traditional Christmass hampers to their employees. This market has been shrinking, but it still creates a lot of work at the end of the year. Further more we now really see an increasing demand for powerbanks and smartphone related items
A creative and interesting promotional items by your company...
For this I prefer the three new products we feature on the homepage of our website: http://www.beglobalpromotions.com/. The Promotional frying pans, EsspresGo and Office Blocks.

PGB:Where do you find most of your enquiries are coming from? Referral, Web, cold call, tradeshow.
AN: We try to combine both traditional and new marketing methods. This means that we work on our brand through trade shows and printed advertising. But off course we mainly use promotional products we send to prospects and customers to create awareness. We use our website and social media to give a good overview on our products. We always post new products through social media.

PGB: What trade shows will you visit this year and which are best?
AN: We have already visited the PSI, PPAI (Las Vegas), Hong Kong Gift and Premiums, Hong Kong Megashow and locally the "Leveranciersdagen" this year. For us the PSI is the most attractive trade show, because almost all suppliers are based close to our market and the trade show is large enough to explore new products and suppliers every year.

Brand your sink now!

One of the question most marketers struggle to answer when it comes to promotional products is How to make sure our target will see our logo regularly and for a long time?

We found the answer at the Hong Kong Mega Show and we thought we might as well share it with our readers. Let us introduce you to the branded sink plugs!

We loved these sink plugs because:
  • they are very visible (many times a day, usually by more than one person in the house/office).
  • it's a very simple yet very smart product.
  • they are cheap
  • they are universal and each client can use more than one which makes it the perfect giveaway for a tradeshow or an event.
