Easter will be here soon....
JEMPP Newsletter
16th of February, 2011

Hi Elyse,   


Somehow knowing that Easter is just around the corner seems  like this year is going by really fast. We are certainly at full swing here at JEMPP with our team working very hard on many promotional marketing brief's for locally sourced products as well as fully customised products manufactured off-shore.  


Our Summer this year has really served to remind us that we live in what is often a very hot climate, with temperatures in Sydney staying around 40 degrees for quite a few days. It made many seek the outdoors looking for those Southerlies that eventually brought relief from the very hot conditions.


Spending lots of time outdoors is indeed a very Aussie thing to do. Most of us do our best to avoid being stuck indoors. Doing business away from the office or boardroom is now becoming something to strive for whenever possible. Many see the benefits of meeting clients in Restaurants, Sporting Events or even at Golf Days.


Our Special Offer this month is for the Golf lovers out there (and we know there are many!). You will receive a free MaxFli Golf bag with every 144 Branded MaxFli Noodle Golf Balls. It will definetely 'drive' everyone onto the Golf Course. Pardon the pun! In all seriousness, it is a fantastic opportunity to organise a Golf Day and reap the rewards of this exciting offer.


Please do not hesiate to contact the team at JEM Promotional Products on (02) 8205 1334 or if you would like to discuss any product mentioned in our Newsletter.

JEM Promotional Products 10 Year Celebration  

JEM Promotional Products 10 Year Anniversary


As part of our 10 Year Celebration we are going to do a feature in our newsletter each month with a focus on the number 10. This month we continue with... 


10 Tips for Exhibitors



Before the Expo


1. Identify your goals

Do you want to increase visibility, gain exposure to a new market, check out the competition, launch a new product or service?


2. Plan to measure and evaluate  


Hand out a 1000 brochures, obtain 100 new prospects or meet a key customer.



3. Develop a key message for your booth


All good advertising requires oneclearly communicated message.

Don't get tempted to try and say too much and end up with a cluttered and confused mess.



4. Design an open and inviting booth


Keep the booth open, don't obstruct the opening with tables etc. Use interesting graphics to draw peoples attention and create plenty off "walking around" space.



5. Advertise your participation


Use news releases, newsletters, e-newsletters, mail outs, your website, email inviting your customers to visit.



6. Promotional material


Is your marketing collateral up-to date? Create a powerpoint presentation, consider give-aways or running a competition.



7. Your staff


Decide on a dress code for your staff to make them easily identifiable.

Train your staff to know what to expect and make sure they know the product or service inside out. Encourage a warm and friendly first impression. There's nothing like staff with their backs to the entrance, on the phone or scowling with arms crossed to switch people off.


After the Expo


8. Try to send requested literature within 24 hrs of the Expo.


9. Keep track of your new prospects.


10. Analyse what went well and what didn't so you can improve your performance for next year!


Stay tuned for next's month 10 Feature
Featured Article: The Benefits of ordering Promotional Products from your Local Sydney Distributor   

There are many benefits associated with working with a local distributor including:

  • Relationships - meeting your sales consultant and getting to know each other on a professional level
  • Ability to meet and understand the client's needs (seeing previous promotional products or meeting to design new products in readiness for manufacturing)  
  • Ability to deliver fast turn-around on (locally warehoused) urgent items (many times our consultants personally deliver to Sydney location including the airport when deadlines are very tight)  
  • Less transportation/freight costs
  • Less impact on the environment by sourcing locally (minimise your carbon footprint by sourcing and ordering local products whenever possible)
  • Promotional Products Sponsorships (giving back to the community but also benefiting from brand exposure in the local area)

New Exodus Hoodies & Jackets Website Launched 


Exodus Hoodies and Jackets have launched our new website! We have had a facebook page for a while now which has worked really well to communicate instantaneously with all our fans on the status of orders, upload designs and photos of pre-production samples etc. However, we also realised that a website would be a better way of communicating a lot of information such as how the whole process of designing a custom hoodie works. We also have a page where you can download our design templates so that you can start designing your custom garment.
