Funding for Election Campaigns

The ANC is keeping mum on its funding sources for the election campaign, but party insiders involved in fundraising say its election effort is heavily subsidised by the ruling parties in Libya, Angola, China and India. The ANC’s funding strategy is based on donations by individuals, but the big money comes from ruling parties elsewhere.

The Represented Political Party Fund would be administered by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) between April 1 2013 and March 31 2014. The notice was gazetted on April 5.

According to the IEC's 2011-2012 annual report, the 14 political parties represented in parliament were allocated a total of R104-million. Of this, the ANC received R64.9-million, followed by the DA with R17-million and COPE with R9.7-million.


Cap-italising on an Election Campaign

elections VenezuelaIn the recent elections in Venezuela between Maduro and Capriles, our Cool Cut Cap partners for South & Central America "Contacto Promo" made caps that could be handed out to the candidate's supporters.

An election campaign needs promotional items that splash colour and show support. The wearing of caps helped the crowds show their allegiance to candidate, without costing a fortune. crowds showing support with caps and bannersAlthough a lot of supporters make up their own material, part of any election campaign's promotional strategy would include banners, posters, flags, buttons, t-shirts and caps.

The Cool Cut Cap is just a single piece of paper, and is easily transported & made up by either the campaigners, or the supporters. Compared to a real cap... the Cool Cut Cap costs a fraction of the price (less than R2) and has far more branding opportunities.

Venezuela electThinking of being green? Since the cap is just paper, it completely bio-degradable, and even printed on Triple-Green gloss (an eco friendly paper). The cap is strengthened with a laminate on both faces, so it's durable enough to wear for a few days.

Make the Cool Cut Cap part of your next election campaign.





Spur Steak Ranches

CCC Spur v1smCool Cut Caps devised an original and fun alternative to the standard colouring-in sheet that kids are given at Spur. The Spur Cool Cut Cap features a colouring-in picture on the underside of the cap that kids can colour and customise prior to assembling the cap.

The colouring-in picture on the underside of the Cool Cut Cap stays true to Spur's original Wild West theme and allows for kids to design a lining for their very own Cool Cut Cap.

The Cap features Spur's branding, as well as promotes special offers and loyalty programmes such as the Spur Secret Tribe Club and the Spur Family Card, thus making it a functional and informative branding item that the kids can enjoy, whilst  informing the parents of Spur's marketing initiatives. When folding into a cap, the kids can choose to wear the cap showing thier colouring-in skills, or Spur's branding.



IRB 7s Rugby - Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

The Cool Cut Cap featured at the IRB 7s, Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth. The stadium, using the 2013 slogan "Rugby is going to be BIG in the bay", were promoting their season tickets and the web address to buy online.

The promoters had half a minute, whilst making up the cap, to let the fan know about what season tickets were available... thus driving the message directly to the fans.

Thousands of fans grabbed the Caps to shield themselves from the sun-exposed stands. They wore them side on, straight and front-to-back... just like real caps.

Liked by the kids, women and men of all ages, the Caps turn a campaign into a walking billboard of information... plus get TV time!

The Cool Cut Cap is a must for sporting events, specially where spectators will be sitting in the sun... or simply to have your brand and message echoed throughout the stands.
