JEMPP Newsletter
18th of April 2011

Hi Elyse,  


April is proving to be an extremely busy month and so we have lots to get through in this newsletter.   


New Premises:


The team at JEM Promotional Products is busy preparing for our big move which is coming up on this Thursday the 21st of April. It has been 5 years since our last move but because we love this area so much we won't be moving far. Our brand new offices are receiving the final touches as we speak so it will be lovely to move in and make it our new 'home'. Our new address is Unit 10, 7-9 Progress Circuit, Prestons NSW 2170. All other details will remain the same. We will be open on Thursday but ask you to be patient with us as we try and move plus settle into the office all on the same day.  


Biggest Morning Tea:


May is definitely going to be a busy month for the team at JEM Promotional Products. Not only will we be probably still unpacking from our move but we also will hold our annual Biggest Morning Tea on Friday the 27th. We all feel very strongly about doing whatever we can to support the Cancer Council so we look forward to sharing a 'cuppa' with our clients, family and friends.


Mother's Day 


One other thing that we must not forget is Mother's Day on the 8th of May. Many will be looking to buy Mum a small gift or to take her out for a nice meal on the day. Many industries such as restaurants and beauty industries will have a welcome boost to their business. Many marketers are busy right now creating packages that will be pomoted heavily on the lead up to the big day. Branded promotional items will be used in many ways such a Gift with Purchase campaigns or as inecentives for bookings. The great thing is that Mum's will be acknowleged for their great contribution to so many people's lives so let's all do our best to spoil her on the day! View our Mother's Day products online.   


Cheap Promotional Products:


In our industry we are often asked for cheap promotional products and often we avoid recommending that our clients go down that path. Quality is always the best way to go as far having long lasting products that continue to promote your business or services for years to come. However, we now acknowledge that in some circumstances cheap promotional products have a place in the market place. Sometimes marketing budgets are limited so cheap promotional products is the way to go. In this month's newsletter we have focused on value for money and even included an article that makes for interesting reading. Considering that the End of the Financial Year is just around the corner maybe cheap promotional products is a way to use up the last of those marketing budgets. So make sure your company or division claims it's last minute promotional products purchases as an expense in this year's taxes. Our suggestion is use your budget and don't run the risking losing it, as is often the case when organisations review the promotional marketing budget for the following year.

Featured Article: Cheap Promotional Products!

 Having spent so long in this industry crusading against the grotesque misconception that promotional products are all on a swift journey from consumer to land fill, I have obviously become accustomed to loathing the words "cheap promotional products".  I have never seen the value of placing your logo on a "cheap promotional product" because what does that say about your brand and your company?  It's like getting ready to go out on the town, paying $400 to have your hair styled and then whacking on a lycra get-up from Supre to complete the 'look'.  It just doesn't mesh.

But alas I am finding more and more - particularly in today's infamous "global economic crisis" - the sad truth is that most people really are in need of cheap promotional products.  Lately every request I get for promotional products, even from my most marketing-savvy and brand-aware clients, is a request for a cheap promotional pen, a cheap promotional keyring, or pretty much just a cheap promotional product in general.


Thus, I have sadly succumbed.  I will of course continue my everyday quest for innovation, uniqueness and quality when it comes to sourcing products for new promotional campaigns; but I will now expand my search.  I will now surrender to the dreaded "economic crisis" and will concede that cheap promotional products do actually have their place in the market.


In times like these it's important to get your brand out to the consumer in the least expensive way.  It's kind of like the "which came first, the chicken or the egg" syndrome.  With everyone tightening their budgets the first place to cop the shave is normally the advertising and marketing sector.  But if you don't get your company name and your products exposed, then surely the sales will slow down and the income will be further affected?  So the only answer is to keep on promoting your company or your brand, but to find a clever and less expensive (cheap) way to do so.


So here is my answer.  Cheap mailers, cheap brand reminders, cheap giveaways, cheap gifts.  Basically cheap promotional products in general.  And here's my advice.  Flood the market with these products - get your logo out there, remind people that you are still there.  It takes much less time for people to forget you than it does for them to recall who you are and why they should buy from you.

 Photo printed lining now available on our Exodus Hoodies & Jackets Range


The team at Exodus are constantly looking for new and exciting improvements to offer schools for their Year 12 Hoodies, Jackets, Jumpers and Jerseys. Our latest improvement is to offer a photo printed lining. We are able to print any photo or design you want on the lining but we think a really great idea is to print your Year 12 Photo or your muck-up photo. Below is a test run we have done using the Year 12 Class of 2011 Muck-up photo from Bossley Park.
