QLD Staffing Agency – Frequently Asked Questions

Time and time again I have potential clients asking the same questions. Usually because they have never worked with a Promotional Staffing Agency or they have had a bad experience in the past with another Staffing Agency.We have listed below our most frequently asked questions from potentail clients.

  • What is your point of difference

Flash Point Promotion’s point of difference is service, being a boutique local agency, it really gives us the advantage to be personable with our staff and our clients. We are small in the areas that count and we don’t treat you just like a number. We have competitive pricing, yet this does not effect the quality of our staff.

  • Do you have experience in doing this?

Flash Point Promotions has been running successfully for over 11 years our staff have experience within your industry. Hospitality, Clubs, Bars, Fitness, Administration, Food, beverage, Shopping Centres, Music Festivals, Sporting Clubs and the list goes on.

  • Who are your most top clients

Our top clients are Major Shopping Centres, Event Management Companies, National Brands, SME’s across a range of different industries including – Property, Construction, Accounting, Beauty, Government,

  • What do you specialise in

Flash Point specialises in all your staffing requirements, from Street Teams, Marketing and Promotional Campaigns, Branding Activations, Small jobs that could be flier distribution all the way to large jobs that require full service staffing. Food & Beverage, Racing, Retail, and Sporting.

  • How do you recruit your staff?

Our recruiting is done all in house, we do all the recruiting ourselves! – The reason why is we are so picky. We screen all of our candidates through an extensive process – We do an initial ‘casual’ interview on skype, from there we do an ‘open day’ at the office – we invite all candidates at one time this is really to get an idea and to see how they interact with strangers. Then we have a group interview and then a one on one interview. This process shows if they are well-presented, confident, outgoing, professional, engaging and still naturally the life of the party, which is all our specific requirements. If we are only recruiting a few people at one time we will do just individual interviews. We like to get to know all our staff and they are considered as employees not contractors.

  • What are your most popular jobs

Sometimes it can come down to the Season, Different Annual Holidays and even School Holidays. However, all year round would be Corporate Events, Functions, Golf Days, Expos, Festivals, Shopping centre activations – this includes product launches, flier distribution, sampling, store launches and more.

  • What are your fees

We understand no business is the same and requirements are different to everyone, which means we provide a tailored quote. To determine your staffing cost we take into account the event – How many staff – Duration per staff – The amount of days – if we are arranging uniforms or costumes – and the role worked.

Flyer Distribution

Flyer Distribution – Is it still effective?

I know what you are thinking. In such a technology based digital age how can flyer distribution be effective or in fashion?

In such a digital age emails and social media have become some of the most important platforms and tools for online marketing.

However, how often do you open those spam emails? How often do you read the Facebook posts about 20% off at a store and visit that shop?

Flyer Distribution is a very easy way to spread knowledge rapidly, our staff on average will hand out between 300 – 500 flyers in a 3 hour high traffic time frame. With a marketing plan, an interesting call to action, productive methods of distribution and great staff Flyer Distribution can work in your favour!

We have listed the top 3 reasons why Flyer Distribution is still effective:

  1. Cost Effective

Have a small budget? No worries – unlike other forms of advertising flyer distribution is cost effective. Using a trusted advertising agency you will get premium quality for a low cost! Utilising Flash Point Promotions staff will also fit into a budget that may be slim – we will help recommend days, time and areas that will be effective for your target market!

  1. Strategic and Targeted Marketing  

When it coming to strategic and targeted marketing it can be a lot more  simple than any other medium. All that is required is to set up your flyer, help with the design, come up with an interesting call to action for your potential customers and research a high traffic location still in close proximity of your business. At least this way it is getting to your target market and lots of your audience in a short amount of time, rather than an email sent to 1000 possible customers with 50 of them opening it for under 10 seconds and 30 of them living overseas.

  1. It’s creative and beyond tech

You have all of the creative freedom do design how you would like, and plan an interesting call to action! Certain areas where it is difficult to get in touch with a large audience in a small time through digital medium, flyers can be a great alternative method! They can be distributed easily and people can have a look at them on the go, making it easy for businesses to reach out to those who are not on digital platforms.

So, look at Flyer Distribution in another way, It’s like double denim and overalls – It’s an acquired taste and not everyone does it – But it’s in fashion, it’s trendy and it is still effective.

Organising Promotions

The Big 5 ‘W’s When Organising a Promotion

When it comes to organising, and planning promotions it is crucial to collaborate your who, what, where, when and why for your promotions or event.

Having the in-depth research and back ground for the big 5 W’s will increase the success and audience.

We have outlined Who, What, Where, When and Why when it comes to planning and organising your next promotional marketing campaign.


Ok, so you don’t have an idea yet on what you are promoting or what event it may be. But you want to figure out who you want to be your target market. Collating information from previous campaigns, promotions or events can help significantly, however if this is your first promotion you will need to do in depth research. If you are think about promoting a new kids sun block or a new alcoholic beverage you will need to determine you who, what where and when within one point.

Your target market needs to be relevant, according to your brand, achievable when including your where/when/why/what.


What you are promoting should really be the first point out of all to figure out the other 4 W’s – as they are all significantly impacted on what the product or brand may be.


The Beach, The Shopping Mall, The Park, The Airport, The hottest club – Figuring out your where in respect of holding your Promotion or Event is detrimental to make sure you have the right crowd and at the right time.


So, you are almost there. Only two more W’s to go! This aspect is an essential element for you to have the most success out of your next promotion. When will you be holding it? Such a broad question, will it be in Summer, Winter or will it be in raining weather, hot weather. Determining your when can help adjust where you will be holding your event, so you can get the most of your audience in one location.


The last point that is one to miss, but probably the most crucial factor of all. Why, is this promotion relevant, why will my audience enjoy, why are we hosting it, why are we pushing for this promotion.
