Not just great quality, great value SUP kit
It’s not an easy life running an adventure or watersports company. And when inflatable SUP from the market leaders set you back over £1k a board, it can be hard to make the finances stack up. But because McConks are a direct sales only brand, without an expensive distribution and retail network, we’re a fraction of the price of the big brands, for kit that’s every bit as good. And even better according to some of our brand friends.
We wouldn’t be an approved supplier to the likes of the Princes Trust, Essex County Council and the MOD, unless we made reliable, robust kit.
We wouldn’t be working with respected watersports providers and instructors unless our kit lasted and was good value.
But we offer so much more than great prices and great kit. We love working with friends and partners to help everyone’s interests. It can be a competitive, dog eat dog world out there, if you let it be. But that’s not how we operate. We don’t do the whole corporate ego thing, and we don’t worry about what our competitors do. We just focus on what’s right for us, and for the companies we like to call friends and partners.
We’ve spent a couple of years building up both our product portfolio, and our brand presence. With a 300% increase in our social media profile reach this year, we’re regularly reaching 5,000+ people a week with our videos and posts on social media. And with almost 40,000 visitors to our webpages over the last 12 months (up from 7,000 the year before), we can lever our channels to help you market your business without needing to spend lots of money on SEO or advertising.
Over the next 12 months we’re planning a significant push on one of our websites www.supgiftcard.com, and any outdoor company can join the scheme. And in total, we’re forecasting over 80,000 new visitors (120,000 total visitors) to our McConks/SUPhubUK/SUPgiftcard ecosystem over the next 12 months.
Our success is your success
As a great example of what can we can achieve together, we’ve been working hard with GoXperience, an adventure yacht charter outfit based in Croatia to really push the SUP side of their business. And we produced this little video for Nathan, which has helped keep his SUP adventures full since we started working with him.
Part of our success is driven by our hard work on social media and working to increase our McConks brand awareness and reach. But to be honest, the lions share of the growth coming from the positivity and enthusiasm of the companies we call friends.
Your success is our success
And when the partnership model works well, everyone benefits. If you haven’t seen it already, this video is a great example of a company (Ant and Lianne Ing at Standup Paddle Board UK in Llangollen) that we’re proud to call McConks friends, doing their bit to push and promote the SUP life!
What else do you get if you join our family?
The warm fuzzy feeling of knowing you’re part of an ecosystem of companies and people working together to look after one another is a pretty big part of it. But you probably want to know about merch, discounts and deals.
Our merch includes flags and stickers, t-shirts, hoodies, caps and hats, inflatable buoys, floating sunnies and lots more. And our merch range will be expanding in 2019. But you’ll need to register to find out more 🙂
Can I retail your kit
McConks are a direct sales only, so sorry, no, you can’t retail in the traditional sense. However, we are developing a network of regional experience providers/instructors, who will be able to sell McConks products as part of a wider experience package. If this is of interest to you, then get in touch.
