Promotional Video 2:

The second adaptation to the previous first ‘homemade’ video using the ever so powerful iPhone 6 Plus built in “iMovie” application.

After experimenting with the first video, the second one would be much improved focussing on brand awareness. The quality of this second video is much more precise and based around the business itself and what it does. Whereas the initial video was abit of fun and qwerky.

This video can be viewed on our FaceBook page “Sun Wah Foods”, whereby it’s reception was greatly received.


New Look Chilli Oil Available Now!!

IMG_5443

The long awaited square jar chilli oil is available in your local oriental store NOW. Don’t wait around, check out where your local store is and stock your cupboards.

It is plastic to maintain freshness, with a plastic cap that actually screws on properly in comparison to the original one which had an issue with leakages and minimal thread for a tighter seal.

This new look not only enhances its original look by a mile but actually the novelty aspect that it’s different from other brands visually, is a direct appeal already. Our regular customers will notice the change but will definitely not forget the delicious taste of the aromatic flavours of the Chilli Oil.

It was a controversial decision to replace our popular 110g jar, however, the change is for the better. You can enjoy the Oil much longer and share with your family and friends!

Available to view on our Facebook page “Sun Wah Foods”

To promote awareness of our brand, a quick video using an app on the iPhone 6 Plus, was created. This started initially as a bit of fun, and was received well by the locals. But there was substance to it, so there is room for improvement and to create even better videos later on.

Further videos or trailers will be produced as the whole process was simple to direct, just have to fill it with suitable content. Due to the ease of the app use and it’s ‘Freeness’, teaser videos will be made in order to bring additional awareness to our brand Sun Wah Foods. It’s about being noticed and getting other people’s attention, which did its job pretty well.

It was only 36 seconds long with a cheesy appearance from the owner and family (heavily criticised for it) but this is what brings that appeal to the video and throws the attention out there for all to view.

The next video will be in the style of a movie trailer, which is more hand crafted for a more serious vibe. So please stay in touch for updates.

Marketing

leaflet

Our latest marketing tool, old school leaflets!!

These were made as a tool to promote brand awareness to the masses. I guess old school is sometimes just as effective marketing strategy as the latest trends such as through social media.

Strategically placed in existing customer’s stores, it will create an awareness to the public and hopefully generate an interest for when they are ‘shopping around’.

In terms of finding new business, distributing these coupling a covering letter will definitely grab the potential customer’s attention.

It’s colourful, contains the necessary information one needs to know about the product, and is not crammed with misleading content. Straight to the point, direct marketing.


Plastic is Fantastic!!

IMG_5155

With February just days away, we are extremely excited in revealing our new shaped Chilli Oil jars! This will undoubtedly give our infamous product over other brands being unique in design, colour, and obviously the taste by far.

With an increased in size from 110g to 180g, customers can enjoy more for longer, hence won’t be a total burnout for the pocket. Aside the fact that it has taken the new shape of a square jar, I’m sure this will attract the eyes of potential customers as it’s different and aesthetically pleasing.

Coinciding with the launch of our new Cuttlefish Ball, we are pushing for recognition in the society and offering customers with options, as you know, we always strive for different things constantly.

Maintaining our high levels of customer service, our regular punters are our best source of feedback, with every critique, our products improve continuously. It has been said, you don’t always stay the best for long.


New Product Review!

Fried Cuttlefish Balls, Tom Yum Flavor!

Our recently trialled product has gone a huge success with positive feedback on taste and popularity. This will be a product that will be greatly accepted in the stores and become a hit with regulars.

The twist with this product is the fact that it has a Thai element to it, which is the Tom Yum enhancement. As Tom Yum is associated with a soup base, the distinct flavour was a risky approach to our fishball range as there are many who find the Tom Yum mix strong on the lemongrass side of things. So the balance of the ingredients had to be perfect.

After getting this right, some regular punters (a few stores) immediately stocked this product on their shelves and is receiving good sales. However, this still needs extra push if it is to appear regularly in customer’s homes. There are a few other stores that still need persuading to stock this new flavour, but this needs persistence, it will happen so stay tuned!!

 

 


Work Ethic

workethic

This week is a week where Sun Wah Foods Ltd will begin its journey to become distributed Nationwide. And we are not talking about just being distributed via another supplier…

We now have the ability to partner with a well known chilled distributor by whom can deliver our fresh stock directly to the customer’s doorstep in any part of the UK either next day or a standard 3 day service.

This new service will eliminate any third party costs and therefore is a cost effective method by just having a low cost delivery service as opposed to operating another vehicle route, additional wages, fuel surcharges etc.

We do hope that those who do come on board and want to work with us feel that our new service will be organised smoothly and  run professionally. After all, customer satisfaction is what we are all about and have been for 20 years.

However, this is just the first step, the next big step is actually prospecting potential customers around the UK and gaining their trust and build rapport in order to create a long term relationship with them. This will generate a new economy for Sun Wah Foods Ltd! So a lot to do for the New Year, let’s go and grab this and take it to another level…


Back to Work Mode!

The New year blues have immediately kicked in with atrocious weather dampening various parts of the UK, London was like a huge swimming bath!

Having an effect on the business slightly, let this not discourage the fact that we are shifting our popular chilli Oil by the tens every week, to which I sincerely hope the new plastic jars arrive soon, we are running dangerously low!! But shows we are in high demand, new problems… great!

The Fishball front, our competitors have been delayed in delivery, which gave us an opportunity to provide surplus stock to fruitful customers. This meant prospective customers who normally buy the other brand couldn’t because the oriental store didn’t have anything to sell. So who do they turn to instead…? Bingo! This is why a full shelf is always a good shelf!


Welcome 2015!

It has been a while since the last blog, busy with the Christmas rush and now 2015 has pounced from outta nowhere!!

A quick round up of what has happened.

A mad rush to grab “what you can” in the oriental stores, and most definitely many personal visitations from regular customers. Here, customer service is on par as all walked away reasonably happy, although some products were completely sold out… (hey, business was a booming!)

Stores doubled up taking advantage of those early birds, and needless to say, mayhem reached the stores, and early.

Now 2015 has approached, the New Year rush also commenced!! Luckily we was prepared and stocked sufficiently to cater for those last minute stragglers.

Another week, another round up, check in for more weekly updates.
