I have had a career in the Promotional Industry for 20 years working for some of Auckland’s top gifting companies.
IDentity Marketing was established in early 2005. My clients are from all different business sectors including Pharmaceutical, FMCG, Construction, Design, Media, Finance, Real Estate, Animal Health, Fitness, Insurance, Automotive, Agricultural, Legal, Fashion, etc.
“Exceptional Service” is a top priority for me. I know how important it is to listen to my clients needs and do the utmost to ensure they are completely satisfied with the end product and that all expectations are met.
Since the birth of our relationship with IDentity Marketing I have been consistently impressed with the level of service we have received. Not only is it an absolute pleasure to deal with Julie-Ann but she is industry savvy, insightful and always on time!
....”Julie-Ann was a pleasure to work with. We had a challenging set of requirements for our staff Christmas gift and she was very creative with her ideas. Above all, she listened to what we needed and responded to every request very promptly. The gift was a great success and it’s no mean feat to please over 400 people!”
....”I work in the Pharmaceutical industry where building brands is our core business. To reinforce branding and key messages, brand reminders are a critical component of the marketing mix. When you first enter the world of brand reminders and gifting, the options are at first overwhelming and considerable time can be spent agonising over the possibilities.
I met Julie-Ann in 1999 and quickly established a great working relationship. Julie-Ann has considerable insight into the industry and has extensive knowledge and experience in branding elements.
Julie-Ann has always been the first point of contact when we have needed anything to help promote our brands, always providing a selection of appropriate options and first class service in terms of production and delivery.
I do not hesitate in recommending Julie-Ann and her services.”
....”After many years as a client I would unreservedly recommend IDentity Marketing to anyone looking for exceptional service, competitive pricing, innovative products and a can-do attitude.
Julie-Ann has a sound knowledge of the corporate gifting market with many years in the industry and she always goes the extra mile. Julie-Ann offers a friendly, personalised service which is unsurpassed.
You’d be silly to go anywhere else!”
....”I have worked with Julie-Ann from IDentity Marketing for about 5 years. Often given the task of finding the unusual or odd, Julie-Ann has always been up to the challenge. She is very good at matching and finding promotional items which fit with a Brands identity and meet our strict medical code requirements. Never one to give up she has sourced even the most challenging items at times and has consistently come back with competitive pricing.
She is also very proactive and when she sees an opportunity that may save money is quick to drop an email. This approach has saved my company literally thousands of dollars at times.
One of the most important aspects for me is Julie-Ann’s attention to detail and professionalism in managing the sourcing and production of items. When time is short and often with competing demands knowing that I can leave the management of these processes to her makes the process simple and easy. Where problems have arisen these have been dealt with without involving me, while always keeping me informed. This has meant once we confirm orders I can forget them until the items arrive.
I recommend Julie-Ann to anyone interested in leveraging the full benefits of cost effective promotional items.”
....”On top of all the larger orders of a veriety of member and staff gifts that Julie-Ann has supplied to Les Mills over the years, I have personally dealt with Julie-Ann on a more exclusive item.
I went to Julie-Ann with the challenge of finding something we could give to 15 key people in the business to recognise their contribution to getting the business to it’s 40th birthday in such great shape. Julie-Ann didn’t have anything on her books that looked to do the job, but went all out to find something that would and negotiate a competitive contract on our behalf.
What really impressed me was Julie-Ann’s responsiveness (when she said the sample will be there today - it was), her professionalism and superb attention to detail.
In short, the order arrived on time, in perfect condition and more than lived up to the expectations.”
- Ex Fernz Corporation
....”I met Julie-Ann in a professional capacity in 1991 in my position as a Marketing Manager for Fernz Corporation.
Over several years she was the preferred supplier of corporate gifts for the Company’s several divisions, (Corporate Head Office, Fertilisers, Industrial Chemicals, etc.) The Company’s shift to Australia was all that severed this relationship. When the Company sold some of its Divisions, I am aware that she continued to supply to the new owners.
Her innovative ideas for gifts at many levels of cost eventually lead us to use her as our sole source of supply. When the company celebrated its 75th year of business, Julie-Ann’s ideas for this celebration were legendary.
Julie-Ann was never pushy, but quietly went about her and our business with a determination and drive to deliver what we required.
Her ability to deliver on time was a major factor in using her. One of Julie-Ann’s strengths is her ability to develop a friendship with those she does business with, and no matter how small the order, to her it was important.”

I like to take a proactive approach both by keeping an eye on market trends and suggesting appropriate new
products or price advantages when they occur, and by recommending the best (and often most cost effective
way to brand a product without compromising the look. I consider it very important to keep in close contact
with my client once a job is underway.
