Reusable Shopping Bags

Reusable Shopping Bags make a great corporate gift because they are useful, in demand and will be used over and over again providing strong branding opportunities.

Unlike cheap plastic bags, reusable bags are unlikely to have their handle tear off or to develop a hole if the corner of a box or other sharp products press into them. Reusable bags are easier to use for both loading and unloading groceries, and your purchases are more likely to survive the trip to and from the store. Leaks are less likely to be a problem with reusable bags, and it’s easier to control where reusable bags have been and what germs they may carry.

Reusable grocery bags can be used for a lot more than carrying groceries. A nice reusable bag is essentially a structured tote bag, and can be used for many of the things you’d use a tote bag for. You can pack your lunch in them, use them to carry snacks on a road trip, take books to and from school, etc

Empire Promotions has a wide range of reusable bags to suit any need and budget.

Reusable Coffee Cups

Whether you’re a fan of the latte, cappuccino, macchiato, straight black or even the classic flat white, there is no denying Australian’s love their morning coffee on the go. While some people have reusable coffee cups handy during morning rush, the majority of coffee drinkers opt for the fast and easy “disposable” coffee cup to hold their morning brew.

While this is fantastic for both the local economy and our own mental well-being, there are some negative side effects to that morning coffee.

It's now well-recognised that disposable coffee cups are largely unrecyclable and an environmental disaster across the world, filling up landfill and polluting waterways and our environs. Australia’s obsession with coffee has led to an extra 7,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste from disposable cups. While many may think that these ‘harmless’ paper cups are recyclable, they aren’t and here’s why.

Less than 1 in 400 ‘disposable’ coffee cups are recycled. The irony is that most of these ‘disposable’ or ‘recyclable’ coffee cups cannot be recycled due to their plastic lining. In fact, the plastic lining in your morning coffee cup will outlive you!

While the paper part of the cup will break down rather quickly, it will take over 30 years for the plastic lining to fragment and close to 100 years to break down completely. That is still only if the plastic has the perfect environmental conditions to break down.

So waste-conscious Australians are taking responsibility into their own hands for their take-away caffeine indulgence by investing in reusable BYO coffee cups (#byocup).

Where once these were large insulated vessels that could accommodate half a pint or more of coffee, probably poured from a drip filter coffee pot and drunk over four or more hours, there's now a wide range of sizes and styles to fit the full menu of coffees on offer in Australia's thriving cafe culture. 

And if you have a cafe in your 'hood that's signed up to responsiblecafes.org, bringing your own cup could save you around 50c on your coffee.

Whether you're using it on your commute, at your desk or on the weekend there's likely to be a perfect mobile mug out there for you. Which one you prefer when it comes to look and feel can be subjective, but if you're after a cup that keeps drinks hotter for longer the double-walled products retained the most heat, and of those, the stainless steel models do so better than plastic and ceramic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

VACUUM DRINK BOTTLES

Premium quality double wall, vacuum insulated stainless steel bottles with a secure screw cap have become the most popular promotional gift for businesses and sporting clubs.

They offer exceptional performance by keeping drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for up to 12 hours. Nomad Powder Coated

Eco Safe
Stainless steel does not require a plastic liner ensuring a chemical and odour free beverage. It has an indefinite life span which keeps your logo in the public arena longer but also helps to limit the use of disposable plastic bottles that can end up polluting the environment. All materials used are recyclable and BPA free.

Avaialble in both 500ml and 700ml sizes and a wide variety of stock colours. We can even arrange custom colours for large orders.

Promotional Product Work

10 reasons why you should include promotional products in your marketing mix.

In a recent survey 52% of respondents said their impression of a company is more positive after receiving a promotional product and nearly 50% use those products daily. How did your last marketing program stack up against those numbers?

Here are 10 reasons why you should beincluding promotional products in your marketing mix.

  1. Create lasting awareness
    Research shows that people remember the name and details of a company that gave them a promotional product and are left with a positive impression. The right promotional item can become an ongoing reminder of your brand. By including your contact details, new customers are also more likely to call you. It’s a great long-term business card. People will also keep and use promotional products longer than a business card or brochure.
  2. Valuable advertising space
    A well-selected promotional product can become a permanent billboard of your brand and your message.
  3. Mass reach at a low cost.
    With a small price tag but large, lasting impact, promotional products are a great value for your investment. A simple giveaway is a great way to increase customer loyalty.
  4. Leverage the perceived cost value of a gift
    The average person has no idea of the cost of producing promotional items. They are more likely to over-estimate the cost. For example, a promotional product that costs you $5 can represent a value of $15 to the recipient.
  5. Employee recognition
    Promotional products can be given to employees to thank them for good performance, or as an incentive to perform.
  6. Trade show support A unique and useful promotional product can draw people to your standand will be remembered long after the show.
  7. Gift with purchase
    Instead of discounting your product, consider adding a free gift with purchase. The branded promotional product should be worth less to you than a proposed monetary discount, but should be perceived to be worth more to the customer. For instance, instead of discounting a carton of beer by $5, you could consider giving away a customised key-ring bottle-opener with a perceived value of $5, but with just a cost of $1 for you to produce. Sales margins are maintained while also enhancing your brand value.The thrill of a free gift lets customers feel special through their purchase.
  8. Let your customers become your ambassadors
    Whenever you see someone wearing a branded item of clothing or using a practical item such as a free gym bag when joining a new gym, that person has become an ambassador or personal mobile billboard for a brand.
  9. Corporate Gifts
    Reward your customers for their support with a personalised quality gift that lasts longer than a bottle of wine or hamper.
  10. Three-dimensional advertising.
    In today’s digital world, so many giveaways come in the form of an impersonal discount code or an email link. However, most people still love something that they can touch and feel. Receiving a free tangible object is exciting and usually far more interesting than any digital promotion.

Free gifts that are thoughtful,creative, and useful make people happy and leave them with a good impression ofthe product and the brand advertised on it. With so many possible items toimprint with your logo, Empire Marketing can assist you to find new andinnovative ways to remind your customers about the value you provide andencourage repeat business and referrals.

Corporate/Trade Golf Days

A well run Golf Day is the perfect way to thank your clients and promote your brand.

  • Golf is Australia’s most popular corporate sport.
  • A well organised golf day is a 10 hour sales call. Compare this to the average 20 minute appointment with a pressured client and you will begin to see that a golf day can do wonders for your client relationships.
  • Few other sports can lure senior executives from their heavy workloads and other commitments.

A well organised, memorable golf day is a relatively inexpensive but effective way for your company to:

  • Distinguish your company from your competition
  • Build relationships with potential clients
  • Reinforce relationships with existing clients
  • Thank clients for their valued custom

Relationships are one of the keys to successful business growth. A well organised corporate golf day can be an ideal way to build these relationships.

Suppling your guests with Branded Promotional Merchandise will extend the benefits of the Golf Day.

Empire Promotions can put together a complete package for the day including gifts, prizes, invites, signage and more.
