  1. Why You Need To Keep Your Merchandising Fresh

    Apple is the biggest company in the world and they have an array of products that have been ground breaking. They were the company which was fresh out of blocks with stylish computers, Ipods, Iphones and Ipads. As of late though many analysts and forums have commented on how Apple seem to have lost a bit of their edge. Their new range of product is no longer as new and with June around the corner everyone is expecting the same regular roll out of a new iphone, a new ipad and potentially other upgrades of other existing products. Nothing substantially new and nothing to get customers excited about and nothing yet to starve off strong competition by other smart phone brands.

    Have you thought about keeping your company image fresh? Things like marketing and merchandising go a long way in establishing your image. If you have used the same type of round blue stress ball for your marketing for the past few years it is perhaps time to change. Yes, it may be a little bit of a risk

    • Perishable Branded Products

      We like to always recommend clients to order a little more merchandise than is needed for any event. Buying in bulk offers multiple advantages including cost-effectiveness, lower prices per unit, the ability to store products for impromptu sponsorship events, and the assurance that no clients will be left without. However, in this blog post though I'm going to chat about something that is totally opposite. There are certain products where we simply think it is in your best interest to go a little bit more conservative when you are working out numbers. These are the products that are perishable. You would be surprised but it is not just limited to edible products. Do you want to know more? Read on!


      1. Choose high-quality perishables for longevity.
      2. Consider audience preferences and events.
      3. Packaging and branding matter.

    • Eco Bamboo Branded Products

      Increasingly you may notice that we have been using bamboo in a lot of our promotional products. Things like

      - Promotional Bamboo bags
      - Bamboo Flash drives

      - Bamboo phone chairs

      - Bamboo rulers and stationery sets

      - Bamboo pens

      Why do we use bamboo? Well simply because we think it is the material of the future. There are a lot of benefits to be had by using bamboo which cannot be replicated by plastic. In saying that there are also a few drawbacks when compared to plastic but overall it is a tremendous material that we are investing heavily in because of its benefits.

    • Stock Inventory Tips For Fund Raising Using Promotional Products

      Fund raising are awesome events and we at Cubic Promote love them. Why? Well it is one of those awesome occassions where everybody wins. The charity or needy cause will definitely benefit from the extra funds, whilst their profile also benefits. What makes it even better is that these are such community based events where everyone is invited to help out means that adults and kids alike will have a blast. For children it is also educational, they learn marketing skills as well as financial skills.

      However with any fund raising using products it would be prudent to keep in mind factors that will effect your sales. The number 1 factor which will effect your fund raising efforts unfortunately cannot be contolled. This is bad weather and is unfortunately responsible for an un accountable amount of missed opportunities. The second factor you can control to a degree. This is the stock inventory of product for sale.

    • Hand Sanitizers - The Essential Winter Promotional Gifts

      The chill is definitely descending on us all. Especially for those of us that live in Sydney, Melbourne, Tassie and other southern regions. Unfortunately with the cold weather it also means the onset of the flu season. Germs, viruses and influenza are nasty. There are so many strands of germs now that even vaccinations only cover a fraction of immunity to certain germs. The best and easiest way to prevent the dreaded flu is by prevention in the first place. The easiest would be our promotional hand sanitizers. These little bottles of magic have germ killing properties of up to 99.99%. Virtually all germs are stopped in their tracks. These are intended to be used on hands only (not on faces).
