It’s that time of month again! September’s client of the month is Orange Promotions, an online merchandise shop that specialises in products that help businesses market their company.
We spoke to Orange Promotions’ Managing Director, Ryan McCormick, to hear a bit more about the company.
Tell us about the Orange Promotions!
Orange Promotions helps businesses grow with the use of promotional products and branded merchandise. We specialise in promotional products because they can enhance your marketing campaign’s success, and last much longer than other advertising mediums. In fact, over 76% of people will keep a promotional product that they are given.
We are a service-driven business that understands the importance of professional advice, personal interaction as well as fast turn around and value for money.
Our diverse clientele range from large blue chip companies to local service providers, but that doesn’t mean all of our new clients don’t get the same great service that our existing clients have come to admire and enjoy.
What gave you the idea to start the business?
Orange Promotions started from humble beginnings. The initial set-up was a small charge to a credit card and plenty of hard work.
Personally I have had experience and success within the promotional products industry in South Africa, and took the massive step to move to the UK.
After working for a company on the high street for just under a year I started to miss the promotional gifts industry and so decided to start up Orange Promotions, and the rest is history!
How can businesses benefit from your products?
Promotional gifts are so successful that one of the most powerful ways to engage with your audience and reaffirm customer loyalty is to include branded products into your marketing campaign.
As a physical item, promotional products significantly outlast other advertising mediums and continue to build your brand with a lasting competitive advantage.
A survey by the British Promotional Merchandise Association (BPMA) reported that 73% of those surveyed will purchase from the company that gave them the promotional gift.
What made you choose The Accountancy Partnership?
We’ve been growing at a steady pace for eight years, so it seemed like to right time to get a professional company to do our accounts.
After searching online we stumbled across The Accountancy Partnership and got in contact for some information. We received great service from the start, and having had all our questions answered we decided to go for it – we’ve never looked back.
The service has been above excellent and I now have a better understanding of our accounts. We are in safe hands and look forward to many more years under the care and support of TAP.
Would you recommend TAP to other businesses?
Yes I would definitely recommend TAP and already have, they get a ten out of ten from me and my team!
What have you got planned for the future of Orange Promotions?
We are constantly looking at ways to improve and grow our business, but we always focus first on service to our customers. What we’ve noticed is that smaller companies would prefer to order smaller quantities of a promo item or clothing.
With that in mind, we have just launched our new online shop, OP Promotions, where you can buy just one of or a few products. So if you just need ten promotional printed pens for your top ten clients or just one award, it’s easily done!
