Our Story/

A friend recommended Ideasbynet. We're still great friends

The statement above reflects our ethos. We like our customers, we appreciate their business and we want them to keep coming back to us.

We think the best way to do this is to continually provide great service. We take great pride in the fact that a high percentage of our business comes from repeat custom, and we are delighted by the amount of favourable, unsponsored testimonials we receive. That’s how we measure whether we are doing our job right.

It's what's behind us that keeps us out in front

We are an online promotional gifts distributor, providing organisations up and down the country with branded ‘promotables’, such as pens, mugs, mousemats and umbrellas.

Formed from a creative marketing agency, we launched our first website in the year 2000, and have built up an enviable client base including the biggest names in UK business, local authorities, government departments, universities, new startups and social enterprises. Out staff are our biggest assets, as they are the ones that put this experience to good use – helping you achieve your goals.

We like to call them our ‘Promofessionals’ – they eat, sleep and drink promotional gifts.

We don’t use a shopping cart.
We use Promofessionals.

You may think it odd, but we don’t offer a shopping cart system on our website.

That’s because we think your business is more important than that – we’ll give you 100% personal service from an experienced Promofessional, who will seek to understand your business goals and guide you towards the perfect solution.

Why are you buying promotional gifts in the first place?

Our Promofessionals will ask you this when they call you, and the root answer is always the same - because you want to solve a business goal.

You might be selling on merchandise to make money, providing your staff with incentives, promoting a re-brand or simply providing information – you always have a business reason.

This is the most important piece of information you can tell us, and we will use it to come up with a bespoke solution for you.

We’ll create solutions that not only satisfy your business goal, but also...

-Fit your budget

-Complement your brand

-Maximise exposure of your message

-Tie-in with your promotional campaign

-Avoid any elephant traps and pot-holes along the way

You can’t do this without experience, and you certainly can’t do this through a shopping cart.

Introducing CAMsultants - It’s just like a meeting, but without all the hassle.

Imagine a meeting where you didn’t have to bother with the travel. Didn’t have to bother with the room booking, the small talk, the cups of coffee...the hassle.

Well imagine no longer, because that’s exactly what our CAMsultants deliver. We hook you up to a live video stream with one of our Promofessionals, who will show you product demonstrations, give you new ideas or just have a good old chinwag.

It’s really easy to set up a CAMsultancy, we’ll just send you a download link and away you go. You don’t need a webcam or any fancy technology, you just watch us on screen and talk to us over the phone as normal.

-We’ll be where you need us to be - on your computer, on your iPad, or even on your phone.

-You get to see our lovely staff in 720p high definition (lucky you).

-We can show you extreme close-ups for very fine detail.

-You can decide when the meeting is, what you want to talk about and how long it lasts.

-Don’t worry – you can see us but we can’t see you (unless you really want us to!).
