The Classic Promotional Item – the Pen!

Sometimes you just cant beat a classic, and that is certainly the case in the promotional marketing industry. With a look at some of the most important factors that make up the ideal promotional product, Marketing Manager Nick Letts lays out why the humble Promotional Pen has become the iconic marketing product, and how it can help to develop and grow your business.

With many companies struggling to find the line between developing brand growth and conserving some of their resources, the demand for a high quality, functional and budget-friendly marketing tool has never been higher. For this reason, we have established an upgraded gallery of our range of these quality marketing tools, with an option available for any company in any situation.

The Best-Selling Mornington Pen

All of our pens here at Promotion Products come with class leading quality. With every build made from tough, durable base materials, these items represent unparalleled value for money as they will last for years.

Pens also have the added bonus of being an every-day item that serves a highly functional purpose. Studies have shown that branded products are more effective the more they are observed by the user, so a desk item that catches the eye of its target market every day is much more likely to deliver the results you need.

Another contributing factor to the excellence, popularity and effectiveness of the promotional pen is the price. Representing one of the most budget-friendly options on the market, our pens start from as little as a few cents each, and provide options all the way up the price scale with our top offerings coming in at over $300 each ( this is for a solid gold item). So with a wide range, and an unmatched price point, these pens can be branded with your logo to truly develop your company to the next level.

Does your Company Need a New Logo?

It might be time to upgrade that old logo according to leading Marketing experts.

With many recent developments occurring in the graphic design and art world, new techniques and styles have recently come to light to help develop a new wave of logos that look brighter, are more engaging and much more memorable than ever before.

Global giant Yahoo, the same company who recently paid over a billion dollars for the blogging website Tumblr, have announced a month long rollout of a new logo every day in order to gauge the audiences reaction and help to keep up to date with it’s target demographic.

In a recent interview, the CEO of the renowned art shop 99Designs, Patrick Llewellyn, recently commented that in his opinion it was truly vital to keep your logo up to date and in style. “A logo is your businesses public face” he argues: “If it doesn’t represent your core values as a business, it’s time for a change”. As most companies are aiming to stay relevant in todays rapidly developing technological age, this means having a good hard look at your current logo is vital.

According to Llewellyn, there a five main indicators that might spell out if your company needs a new logo:

  1. Your logo doesnt represent your current business. Business change over time, and may start to market a wider range of products or services. Make sure your logo shows what you do at the time.
  2. Your Logo doesnt adapt well to modern media. While long-winded logos and brands may look good emblazoned on a shopfront, this does not mean it’s going to translate over to your social media or website. This may mean it’s time for a shortened logo, or a completely new one!
  3. Your logo was a do-it-yourself project. If this logo was your design, or one done by a family member or friend, it might be time for a professional to step in. If you’re not receiving compliments on the design, then it’s probably time for a change.
  4. Your logo isn’t as appealing as your competitions. If your logo looks dull and flat next to the oppositions, it’s definitely time for a change.
  5. Your Logo is too complex. One can look at the recent changes from Windows to see that techniques such as dropshadows and gradients are no longer the in thing, and simple, appealing designs are what will help take your company to the top.

Tumbling in Cash: Karp Paid $110million

In a move that shocked the online world last June, giant Yahoo bought Tumblr, the online blogging service for a whopping 1.1 billion dollars.

 

David Karp, the head of Tumblr and it’s original founder has started to rake in his rewards, with the latest reports stating that Yahoo will pay the 27 year old $110 Million to stay on as the head of the Tumblr section for the next 4 years.

The CEO of Yahoo Inc. Marissa Mayer has promised that the changeover will not result in any dramatic changes at Tumblr, and as part of that promise, Karp is to run Tumblr independently in New York.

The dramatic rise of social media in recent years has had a massive impact on the political, marketing and business landscape. With many companies now provided with an essentially free online presence, Social Media is just one way to truly develop a business and as a result companies like Tumblr and Facebook carry massive economic potential.

Develop your brand with a Silicone Wristband!

How can you help your company grow without costing you the earth? Have a look at our new Silicon Wristband! Nick Letts explains:

With many startup companies or organisations with a low budget for marketing and advertising, there are a few channels that you can take full advantage of in an effort to help develop your business. Obviously, the latest trends are to go online and spend your time developing a powerful web presence through social media or email marketing.

On the other hand, traditional approaches such as television, radio or pamphlet marketing has escalated in cost, and have become an nonviable option for those companies who simply cannot afford to spend big dollars on this kind of advertising. Fortunately, there is a compromise that allows you as a company to save money while still providing your target market with a physical product.

Promotional Wrist Bands

A promotional wrist band may sound like a standard choice to many, but recently, thanks to new developments in the manufacturing technology used to create these logo items, the price has dropped steeply. This has allowed us to bring you these products at a much lower price point than ever before.

Some of the benefits of using a wrist band as a promotional tool are simple – constant brand association, looks and quality. Every time your target audience wears this wristband, they will recognise and register your brand name or logo, bringing it to the forefront of their mind.

Thanks to the much lower price point, smaller organisations can now afford to develop their marketing into a multi-strand approach, ideal to maximise brand awareness and knowledge of what your organisation stands for. With increased brand awareness comes higher interest, generally resulting in an increased level of sales.

So have a look at our Promotional Wrist Bands, and let us help your company to grow.

Are Online Videos A Better Marketing Tool Than TV?

According to a new eMarketer report, the answer is yes.

 

With new trends developing constantly throughout makreting and advertising, and traditional television seeing a drop in its viewer numbers it almost comes as no surprise that the report found over 70% of the interviewed advertising executives believed that the online movement was gaining significant momentum and has in fact taken over from what was previously the premier form of advertising.

 

With the number of online video viewers across the world growing at a rate of 23% per year, most advertising professionals expect the growth of this form of marketing to be the most significant development of the modern era, alongside social media.


Youtube is rapidly becoming a must-have advertising source for every company

 

Thanks to this new development, the projected online advertising of the corporate world is supposed to hit an all time high of $4.1 billion – with rapid expansion within mobile and social media videos also hitting record numbers, the available target audience is constantly growing.

Election Date Called!

With all the recent controversy surrounding the Australian political field in recent months, it seems like it’s all about to come to a head.

The current Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd has called an election for September 7th.

Both the Prime Minister and the Opposition Leader Tony Abbott have delivered opening speeches for the 5 week campaign, with both the candidates running on an idea of who the Australian public trusts more with their future over the next three years.

Just five weeks after ousting Australias first female prime minister Julia Gillard from her post, Mr. Rudd has called the election on the 7th possibly as a follow up of his election winning “Kevin 07” campaign in 2007.


Who to trust?

 

Mr Rudd promised a “steady hand and a clear-cut plan for the future” with “new ways of thinking, new ways of acting, new ways of planning”, while the Opposition leader Mr. Abbott has stated that under his leadership “We will scrap the carbon tax, we will get the budget back under control, we will build the infrastructure of the future and we will stop the boats.”

No matter who eventually wins the election, the next 5 weeks are sure to be full of media coverage and constant speeches from the two candidates as they begin to campaign for the leadership of the nation.
