Dore, Sheffield (PRWEB) February 6, 2011
Ideasbynet, business gifts and promotional products provider, has announced its plans for 2011 following recent movements in the promotional gifts market.
Ideasbynet has seen significant increases in demand for fundraising promotional gifts during the second half of 2010, which have brought their number of enquires almost to the level of its business marketing products. With the prospect of Government cuts being rife throughout 2011, Ideasbynet is expecting that there will be plenty of small organisations in need of additional funding from as many avenues as possible. Ideasbynet has seen clear divisions emerge in the use of promotional gifts, and feels this will become an even more apparent growth area in 2011.
Patrick Hathaway, Ideasbynet marketing manager, commented, "Branded merchandise can provide fundraisers with the unique opportunity to sell personalised items that they can buy at bulk rates and sell on at retail high street prices, keeping any profit as funds for their organisation."
In addition to targeting the fundraising market, Ideasbynet is looking to respond to the massive public embracement of the use of iPads and tablets in recent months and the corresponding boom in Wi-Fi services. Following Apple's announcement of over 1 billion app downloads from its App Store, and Amazon's e-books now outselling paperbacks, it seems inevitable that iPads and other tablets will become more and more ubiquitous. Ideasbynet believe this will be a big area for growth in 2011 in the promotional products sector, and in response it will be featuring a wide range of these products on its website, with a particular focus on iPad and tablet accessories which it feels could develop their own niche in the executive corporate gifts (http://www.ideasbynet.com/premium-corporate-gifts-intro.htm) market.
Ideasbynet has also invested heavily in digital printing technology, as they feel a 'digital revolution' will gather apace during 2011, with marketing professionals able to purchase more personalised corporate gifts. Ideasbynet is pioneering the use of this technology in the promotional gifts sector, and has geared up its services for 2011 to be able to offer bespoke individual personalisation onto mousemats, mugs, keyrings, notepads and even pens.
Ideasbynet is part of a marketing services group formed in 1985 that has evolved to become the market leaders and one of the most trusted names for promotional items & gifts (http://www.ideasbynet.com/) including premium corporate gifts, promotional branded pens (http://www.ideasbynet.com/pens-and-writing-intro-page.htm), promotional clothing, promotional eco gifts, printed plastic bags (http://www.ideasbynet.com/carrier_bags.htm) and other branded promotional products.
Ideasbynet.com was the first UK company to make business gifts and promotional products instantly more accessible over the internet. With Ideasbynet, one hour quotations, product availability, free virtual samples and professional design services, are only a click away.
Strenuous efforts are made to ensure all products promoted on the website are manufactured in an ethical and fair way. Wherever possible, it is Ideasbynet's policy to favour promotional products manufactured using environmentally responsible techniques and utilising recyclable materials.
