March 03, 2011 02:00 ET Launches Exclusive Facebook and Twitter Marketing Technique for Promotional Gifts

UK Promotional Product Suppliers Debuted a New Social Media Marketing Idea and Shopping Tool: Shoppers Can Now Utilize One Click Facebook Sharing or Tweeting of Customized Virtual Samples of Products

SHEFFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 3, 2011) - is renowned for leading the promotional products industry in technological and marketing advancements. Following their announcement of being the first promotional gifts company in the UK to launch a mobile site, they further boost their cutting edge reputation with a unique methodology for helping their clients use their Facebook and Twitter accounts: Virtual Samples for Social Media.

GoPromotional clients have always received a traditional virtual sample of their chosen product with their quotation. High quality images are created in-house within minutes that depict precisely how the chosen product is going to look when printed with their company logo. Clients are now provided with a unique link to share this virtual sample on their company's Facebook page with one simple click, or alternatively to Tweet a link direct to the virtual sample. 

Gareth Parkin, Managing Director, is highly enthusiastic. "We are the only company in the world offering this innovation. It's a step beyond sharing an item because the image you are sharing is customized with your company logo and takes advantage of the latest in social media networking. 

"The feedback on the Facebook link and Twitter integration is overwhelmingly positive. Sharing the virtual samples gives them an opportunity to request instant feedback from their followers, which in essence is equivalent to a free market test prior to ordering. Additionally, they can use it to generate excitement about the new promotional products that are on the way. We all need ideas for Facebook updates, and we're handing our potential clients a clever idea -- including a usable image." client Cronos (, a worldwide market leader in the design and manufacture of cargo containers, was one of the first to utilise this feature on their recent conference folders purchase. Tiffany Chan, a senior marketing executive at Cronos, commented, "GoPromotional created a range of stunning visuals for some conference folders we were looking into for our UK subsidiary. Their unique social network integration allowed me to share these via our Facebook page at the click of a button with all the key decision makers. The samples we shared created significant excitement and the decision making process merely took minutes. Furthermore, our VP in the USA was so impressed at seeing them he also pushed ahead with an order also via the sister site The Facebook link that was emailed to me made the whole process simple -- highly effective and innovative marketing."

Mr. Parkin continues, "To be selling materials that are used for marketing, your clients want to know that you are truly marketing experts. With our continued innovations, we not only offer new services to clients, but we prove we can support them with ideas and cutting edge marketing tips for their business.", one of UK's leading promotional product suppliers, is part of an international online marketing group which specialises in promotional gifts and corporate merchandise.
