Guaranteed Irish Brand Activation Champion
We were beyond thrilled to hear that Sheds Direct Ireland are the August Brand Activation Champion for Guaranteed Irish. Having achieved our Guaranteed Irish status back in May, we’ve been letting everyone and their mother know about this new accolade. So it’s probably not too surprising that we were in with a chance of – and then eventually won – the brand activation champion award so quickly.
The Guaranteed Irish symbol is only awarded to companies that provide quality jobs, that support their local community and that are committed to Irish provenance. As such, it’s something that we strived towards. We are a great company and we do these things already, so we should let everyone know about it!
How we did it
We really, really ’embraced the G’ and we happily plastered it all over our website. You’re on our website now, so you can see it in our header, in our footer – and on the homepage if you pop back there.
We included it in all our Social Media posts:
Why we did it
We didn’t just use the G for the sake of winning the brand activation champion award, however. The G reassures customers that we are a company that can be trusted. At a time like this, that’s very, very important to us. It highlights our commitment to our customers to begin with. It also gets our message out to a wider audience too. The award doesn’t come without it’s perks, you know!
Part of the brand activation champion award means that we get a radio advert. We chose Classic Hits, as it’s the radio station that all our staff listen to (and lots of our customers too, it seems!) so keep an ear out for it over the coming weeks.
We also had an advert printed in the Irish Times yesterday, which is a pretty big deal for us.
The Sheds team really enjoyed the whole process. We feel that getting involved with Guaranteed Irish has had major benefits for us, even outside of the obvious ones mentioned above. We are highly proud of the work that we do everyday and to have a company of their standard recognise us twice-over, really means a lot.
I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. We really are bleedin’ shedly.
