Silverback is a strange way to start a blog article. It's the name of a mountain bike which I recently purchased. In just over a week from now I will be on my way to ride in the next Mapa 24 hours Southern Skies MTB Challenge in Parys. The new bicycle was procured for the very reason of riding in the challenge. Why did I go to all the trouble and expense of getting yet another mountain bike? Well, when you go to a cycle dealer you are overwhelmed by the variety of choices you are confronted by.

Quite often I have looked at bikes and was told that a medium would suit me, but that was incorrect. I had made up my mind to buy a Momsen this time, but again I was steered by the salesman in another direction and I ended up buying a Silverback. Nevertheless I insisted that I wanted a small.

The Importance of Promotional Gifts

Unique corporate, promotional and marketing gifts can make an important difference to any business. With the right approach promotional gifts can make your brand go beyond the ordinary - to get people talking about your brand. Fun, crazy ideas can be a plus with regard to your gift and can put a smile on someone’s face. Don't, however, disregard the usefulness of your gift. It may be an office accessory or a golf shirt with an attractive design on it. All these things have one thing in mind and that is to create brand awareness and loyalty.
