Spring is in the air!
JEMPP Newsletter
16th of September 2011

Hi Elyse,   


Spring has definitely sprung here in Sydney with beautiful weather most days although some mornings are still a little crisp. Many companies are now beginning the process of selecting Corporate Christmas Gifts and from experience we have found the most popular products are Summer Lifestyle Gifts. Basically, everyone wants fun in the sun so you can't go wrong with these products.


Gift Selection Process


The gift selection process is definetely important. After all it says a lot about the company giving the gift so it has to reflect the correct image and branding. It also has to be appropriate to the particular client so quite a lot of thought must go into the process, with that in mind JEM is launching our annual 100 Christmas Corporate Gifts Countdown blog to help you get inspired in the lead up to Christmas.  


Christmas Products


The team is now beginning to respond to many clients interested in Christmas products. These range widely from fully Custom Made Items to Stock Items and Christmas Confectionery. Many clients will be distributing the products via Couriers and even Australia Post so many factors influence the decision such as item size and weight. Budget restraints can also be a big factor so many are looking for good value without compromising their brand. At JEM the team are experts at sourcing products that  fit into every budget and can recommend a wide range of products that will suit most client requirements.  


Christmas Functions and Events


The other big focus at the moment is organising a Christmas Function or Event. Many don't realise the importance of such events. It's actually one of the best ways to connect with loyal clients and team members away from the daily pressures of the office. It is possibly one of the few times companies have the most control as to how their clients will perceive them so it should be organised and planned with the utmost care.  


Christmas Events can be so much more than just an opportunity to celebrate Christmas and experienced  Event Organisers know the valuable opportunity to make the event a memorable one. Marketers will also see the opportunities to reinforce marketing strategies with subtly branded items, that will be used at the event and often  taken home at the end of the evening. It is just another way to ensure every opportunity is taken to cement your company and brand in your client's mind.  This month's article is quite interesting for anyone faced with organising an event so take a moment to read it. 


Please do not hesitate 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.

If You Thought Event Marketing Isn't Direct Marketing, Think Again. Business Marketers Add Corporate Events To The Marketing Mix

We direct marketers are adept at trade show marketing. We know how to select the shows that our prospects are likely to attend. We set up plenty of meetings with customers and prospects. We conduct pre-show campaigns to drive booth traffic - although some of us still have problems getting the mail onto the prospect's desk before the show. We follow up religiously after the show, to keep the sales process moving.


But I am always surprised at how few direct marketers are taking advantage of one powerful tool in the business-to-business marketing toolkit: the proprietary event, where you have exclusive access to customers and prospects, and you can really get down to delivering your message in a way that cuts through the clutter. These events include opportunities like client conferences, user groups, executive briefings and road shows.
