Giveaway coolers – promote tour business and keep your beer cool!


As we head into summmer, or those of us in the Northern Hemisphere do, my thoughts turn towards cold beers on the beach on a Saturday afternoon. Or, if you make your living from Internet Marketing, cold beers on a wi-fi enabled beach any day of the week. Problem is, how to keep those beers cold when the temparature reaches into the thirties?

Answer – a stubby cooler, or a koozie as the Aussies call them. Who else but the Aussies could put so much time and effort into keeping beer cool? Here in England its not usually a problem for two reasons – it never gets warm enough to need one, and they drink their beer warm anyway. Strange people. Anyway, for the rest of the world, you need stubby coolers (A stubby is what the Aussies call a small can of beer, by the way). Not only do they keep the beer cold enough to enjoy, but you can give them away to promote your business.

They come in all shapes and sizes, so you can always find a product to represent your business (or have one specially made), whether bright, brash and out-loud brilliant or quiet, subtle and sophisticated. Think how you’ll feel when you go to the beach and see all that promotion for your business – and people enjoying themselves with beers from your cooler.

Made of neoprene, the cooler provides excellent thermal insulation as well as a light, comfortable carrier for the beach. And it’s not just beer – oh no, for the Europeans amongst you they also come in wine bottle sizes. Don’t forget your corkscrew, though.

So, a summer begins to kick in, except in Britain, obviously, give some thought to the perfect summer promotion – the stubby cooler!

Promotion for House Cleaning Business


With a slow economy, many people are interested in earning an extra income. By taking on jobs cleaning houses, it is a great way to make extra money. It is a job that can be done even if you already have a job.

It is a great way to make extra money and you don’t need a lot of start up cash. It is best if you start with some business cards. They need to be eye catching and to the point. Place them where people can see them; grocery stores, post office, ECT.

Start with a few simple cleaning products such as floor cleaners, furniture polish, bathroom and kitchen cleaners. Some homes will provide their own vaccum cleaners, but it is best to bring your own if possible.

Set your price for your house cleaning service rates. Many choose to charge by the hour, usually $10.00- $15.00, but you can also set a base price for your work that includes just basic cleaning services.

As you build your business you can begin to offer other services such as carpet shampooing and drapery cleaning.

Another great way to get started is to offer you services for free to your church or neighboring church’s. If it is a job well done, they will be glad to spread the word. Getting your name out there, having people hear for themselves what a great job is done is the best way to build your business.

Once your business begins to grow and more clients request your services, you may want to add employees. Maybe a friend or family member who is interested in part time work can help you out. With more people helping, you will be able to take on bigger jobs or more cleanings in a day.

It is important to keep all of your appointments and follow the home owners instructions. Doing a great job will help your business grow.
