BNBranding bend branding firm ad for worx sandwedgesIt’s always nice to have a genuinely hot product to promote. Makes our job a lot easier.

For instance, the new Worx Hybrid Sand Wedge is selling very well in regional golf markets where we’ve launched a multi-media campaign. Seems golfers are unanimously sick of being stuck in sand traps.

The Worx Wedge is the first substantial innovation in Sand Wedge design in 60 years. So we have a compelling story to tell. It involves widely adopted technology, gorgeous design, and most importantly, a deep-seated emotional need on the part of the average golfer.

The owner of Worx searched nationwide for a branding and advertising agency with a solid background in golf marketing. BNBranding in Bend, Oregon devised the messaging for the new club, directed photography with DogLeg Studios, wrote and directed a TV commercial, executed a direct mail campaign, launched digital advertising and re-worked the WorxGolfUSA ecommerce website. As the campaign progresses, we’re also looking forward to helping them expand their sales with point-of-purchase displays in retail stores and possibly an infomercial. Stay tuned.

Pro Golf Of Bend drives foot traffic with print and TV campaign from ad agency BN Branding.

progolfYou can play golf year-round in Central Oregon, but there aren’t too many people who do. So Pro Golf of Bend is doing inventory and taking stock after its first year under the new owner, Andy Heinly.

BNBranding helped Heinly and his team reach avid golfers with a constant presence in the local newspaper. Colorful little ads like this appeared every Wednesday in the sports section, right next to the “content” that’s most relevant to Pro Golf’s target audience.

Radio and TV spots were designed to reach a broader audience. Heinly said he had particularly good results from the TV spots that ran during The Olympic coverage.

“We’ve had great traffic through the store this year, and we had lots of people talking about the spots .” Heinly said. There’s definitely some good buzz out there about us. We’re very optimistic about 2017.”

In 2005 Heinly teamed up with BNBranding owner John Furgurson to write The Forget-About-It Guide To Better Golf. You can buy it at Pro Golf.
