Want to promote your local café and win new customers? Giving or selling customised water bottles with your company branding or insulated coffee mugs with your café’s logo is an effective way to do just that.
If you own a boutique tea house, coffee shop, or community café, here are just a few ways that you can grow your businesses with company-branded promotional products.
Give Customised Water Bottles & Coffee Mugs to Customers on Opening Day
Want your café to be full from the moment you cut the ribbon? A promotional gift promises a full house. Why not offer a free company branded water bottle or an insulated coffee mug and beverage to the first 30 visitors on opening day?
Yes, it will bite into your budget. But, the investment can pay itself back in the long term. When you invest in your customers, you gain their loyalty. When you give company branded merchandise that your recipients can use in your café (i.e., an insulated coffee mug) and daily life, your business can benefit from the extra advertising.
Don't forget to offer a discount on drinks for customers who bring their reusable coffee mug or water bottle. This should guarantee that your customers keep coming back.
Sell Customised Bottles & Travel Mugs in Your Café
It's not just big brand coffee shops that can sell company-branded coffee mugs to their customers. Small businesses and local cafés can do it too. Select a design that reflects your cafes vibe, ethos, or customers. Then print your company logo on water bottles or insulated coffee mugs and put them on display. Alternatively, you can include them in a gift set for Christmas, birthdays, or other occasions.
The advantage of being a small business is that you can customise or personalised water bottle and travel mugs that really speak to your customers. Are the majority of your customer's students? Are they retired? Are they families with kids? Or are they working in nearby offices? As a small business, you can quickly identify your primary customer and choose a design that they'll love.
At FLASKE, we offer wholesale purchasing on customised stainless steel water bottles that's perfect for small businesses. Our minimum order is just 30 units so you can see how well they sell in your café before placing larger orders.
Give Customised Bottles & Travel Mugs Away at Promotional Event
If your café has been in business for a while, then you might want to think about promotional events that will keep your business at the front of customer's minds. Consider celebrating your cafés 5th, 10th, or 20th birthday or rewarding customers with a free customised travel mug and beverage to mark their 100th visit to your café.
You could also consider supporting local organisations, school fundraisers, or community events to publicise your business and demonstrate social responsibility. Customised stainless steel water bottles are ideal promotional gifts for these kinds of events because they're useful for everyone, appropriate for all ages, and encourage plastic-free practices.
