SHEFFIELD, England, January 21, 2011 - Ideasbynet research shows that the average mug is used for 14.75 months,
and 4.75 hot drinks per day - over 2000 times in total.

With hot drinks such as coffee now being an essential part of many
people's morning routine, it is clear that the coffee mug offers a high level
of potential marketing opportunities.

Ideasbynet believes that promotional mugs ( can allow companies to advertise
over 2000 times with every mug, making them an excellent investment to
promote a brand. These figures are based on how many times the first owner
will typically use a mug, as a mug may end up having several different owners
if, for example, if it is left in a workplace kitchen.

Marketing departments have been choosing customised coffee mugs as a way
of promoting their brand throughout 2010, with 10% of all Ideasbynet's sales
coming from their online mug range. The promotional mug trend is looking
strong as Ideasbynet's Xpresso 2 Go Travel Mug proved to be its fastest
selling promotional product of all time.

Patrick Hathaway, online marketing manager for Ideasbynet said: "More
coffee drinkers mean more mug users and more promotional opportunities. We at
Ideasbynet expect to see a further rise in coffee mug sales this year."
