SHEFFIELD, England, Jan. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 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."
