We were ecstatic to learn that stampyourballs had been chosen as one of Theo Paphitis' Small Business Sunday winners. To win a much-coveted #SBS award is a real testament to the hard work we've invested in getting stampyourballs off the ground.
As a result of winning, we've seen an increase in Stamper orders and gained an impressive number of new followers on Twitter. With social media being such an important tool for small businesses, the recognition from #SBS has helped to grow awareness of the stampyourballs brand and its products. It's also given us the opportunity to connect with new audiences and other businesses.
Stampyourballs is the brainchild of Paul Green who spotted a gap in the market for a ball stamper after playing someone else's ball during a game of golf. Paul's golf faux pas helped him to recognise the need for a product that could prevent future golfing blunders and so the MK V Stamper was born.
After fine tuning the product to meet golfers' needs, the simple yet effective stampyourballs Stamper was launched in 2013. Quickly gaining reputation as a necessity on the golf course, the Stamper has a growing army of fans.
With over 100 Stamps on offer including Star, Cocktail Glass and Scotty Dog Stamps, stampyourballs has a great selection of designs to choose from. Plus, the brand has branched out in recent times by launching a selection of Silver Stamps for those who fancy something a little different. The company also provides a bespoke customisation service which is a fantastic option for those looking to offer a unique golf day gift. Stampyourballs can add any logo to the lid in full colour on just 25 items or if the design is simple enough, customers can order just 100 items in one colour as the impression.
The stampyourballs brand is continuing to go from strength-to-strength as the products are popular overseas, with international distributors in the USA, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland and Scandinavia.
"So you never play the wrong ball again."
Despite what any cynic might say, I am a firm believer in following your dreams. Life is far too short for thinking 'I should have done that or wish I'd done that'. Spend less time procrastinating about doing something and more time actioning and making it happen.
Getting a new business off the ground isn't easy by any means but by working hard and being fair, you're heading in the right direction for success.
