05/09 Today its all about cups!

As the title suggests our blog today is all about cups.  We like cups!  They’re useful, really useful and these days everyone seems to be using them as a marketing tool.  From chain store coffee outlets, you know the ones that don’t cost-a-lot or offer the stars-for-a-buck, to a simple plastic number that has some space on it for a logo.  Well this got me thinking why?  Why would a company offer their product to be put on a cup?  I think the answer is straightforward.  We always have a drink on the go and even when you’ve finished it there is a retention value to reusable cups, so it makes sense to put your company logo on it and advertise yourself.

Our clients have told us they have really benefitted from having their company logo on a mug that their staff take off site with them or on the train for the morning and evening commute.  Many have seen the benefits of having this carry-round advertising billboard and have added them to their regular orders with us for their other promotional merchandising, not only for their staff to use but also as a giveaway gift for clients and customers.

That is why we have come up with three new styles to complement our existing range of travel cups.  In typical coffee shop style they are; the Americano, The Stadium Cup & The Smart Mug

02/17 How Your Company Can Overcome the Economic Crisis

There is no doubt we have hit an economic crisis. With financial meltdown hitting the US and spreading to the other parts of the world, and many big organisations closing down, it is only natural to feel concerned for your business. Does this mean you have to stop promoting your company? Are you just going to sit back and wait for things to improve or indeed fall down around your feet without even trying to do something about it yourself, I think not! You need to speculate to accumulate.

Now is precisely the right time to put more effort into advertising your products and/or services. With low cost promotional merchandise options it doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. In these difficult times you still need to keep your existing customers happy; to ensure their repeat business and you need to create greater visibility of your company to acquire new customers.

10/31 The Importance of Brand Building

A company’s logo plays an essential role in creating a corporate identity. However, just having a catchy logo or tagline is not enough. To make your logo effective and to get it ‘out there’, a branding strategy needs to be employed. A single logo used time and time again reinforces your company’s image, building credibility to your employees, potential customers and existing clients.

A good place to start building your company’s branding image is from within. Integrate your brand within your company’s office and start building the loyalty toward your corporate identity with your employees. It is essential that your employees have respect for your company and brand so this is reflected to your clients. With Christmas coming up a good way to reward your hard working employees is with the giving of a corporate gift branded with your logo. Every time the product is used your brand is reinforced.

By promoting your logo to existing customers you build customer loyalty to your brand, you show you are stable and serious about your business with them. When your clients see your logo they will immediately associate it with your product or service. Again the giving of a corporate gift or a collection of gifts to your existing clients is not only a way to thank them but also reinforces your company’s image.

When it comes to promoting your brand to new potential clients, the tactic you need to employ is slightly different. A large quantity of items are needed to be used as giveaways for conferences, trade fairs or exhibitions. So how can you find large quantities of low cost items that still will be of use to potential clients? With the leading online promotional merchandise company you can select a wide range of items all of which can be branded with your logo. From essential office stationary to logo bugs. Your potential clients will take these giveaways into their workplace or home where everyday your company name will be in constant view reinforcing your companies image time and time again.
