Buying a café for sale in Brisbane is a sure way to become a successful entrepreneur. If you are planning to acquire an established coffee shop, it is best to focus on a suburb. COVID-19 impacted café businesses in CBD the most, but suburban cafes witnessed a 20% boost in business. Therefore, Hamilton is one of Brisbane's elite suburbs with an expansive coffee scene. It has a host of cafes for sale that I found upon my search.

Once you have your café, use the following marketing tips to increase footfall and grow your brand.

 

Create A Business Day

Want to expand your reach? Try reaching out to working professionals near you. Pick a local business with 20-30 employees and offer to provide free coffee to them for a day. You can have a business day monthly or as frequently as you manage. It will help bring more traffic to your café in Hamilton and increase recognition.

 

Have a Strong Online Presence

Besides real coffee, short videos, photos and posts regarding coffee, cakes, and other café items do extremely well on social media. You must have an Instagram account to capture café art, drinks, edibles etc. When you have a strong online presence, people will flock to your café, even if just to buy coffee and click pictures.

 

Improve Your Google Listing

Aim to appear in the first 3 listings when people in Hamilton search café near me or café in Hamilton. The easiest way to start is to search your café's name and click the 'own this business link. After your verification, you can start optimising

 

Get Good Signages

Bring people to your coffee shop by getting signage around your location. This way, you can attract locals and tourists alike to come and visit your café. Keep the banners and hoardings extremely simple. If you are running an offer like 'first coffee on the house or 'special brews' etc., then get them signages. 

 

Introduce a Happy Hour

Every business has a few hours in the day or night when it becomes a ghost town. For cafes, it is usually in the afternoon, from 2 pm to 3 pm. To boost footfall during this time, make it a happy hour. Introduce a 'buy one get one' or 'bring a friend and get one free coffee' type of offer. 

 

The Bottom Line

Hamilton is a suburban oasis in Brisbane and an ideal business location. If you buy a café for sale in Hamilton, then use the ultimate marketing tips. They will help get you recognition and business quickly.

An inquiry has heard "no thinking" was required by scientists at Queensland's forensics lab when analysing crime scene samples for DNA.
An inquiry is underway in Brisbane examining a 2018 change in processes at Queensland Health's Forensic and Scientific Services laboratory for testing of crime scene evidence containing extremely small amounts of DNA.

Commissioner Walter Sofronoff KC said the lab was run like a production line where DNA analysts would process a sample without knowing whether it was blood, semen, or saliva "because that would involve time taken to think".

Gas production costs in Queensland's Lake Eyre Basin will be 'staggering', report claims

Gas exploration projects in Queensland's Channel Country will be expensive to produce, generate "significant" carbon emissions and are likely to be abandoned, a report has found.
The report by Pegasus Economics, commissioned by environmental lobby group Lock The Gate, argued gas found in the Lake Eyre and Cooper Basins would cost energy companies millions of dollars to extract and produce.

"Although significant gas resources do exist in the Lake Eyre and Cooper basins, it's just not economically viable to actually extract," said the report's author, Alistair Davey.

Brisbane mayor calls for a daylight saving trial in Queensland 30 years after state's last referendum

Brisbane's mayor is urging the state government to give daylight saving another go, more than 30 years after it was last trialled.
Daylight saving began for most parts of Australia on Sunday at 2am, meaning most Australians have now set their clock forward one hour to make the most of sunny spring and summer days. 

That means the annual debate over whether to introduce the initiative to Queensland has also kicked off.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner on Sunday said Queensland residents should have another opportunity to make up their minds, calling on the state government to trial the scheme once again.

An Update On Rental Tenancy Law Changes In Queensland

Hello friends,
Moving to a new home is fun and exciting but for most tenants it is stressful and challenging. Besides facing issues with packing and moving, you have to agree on various terms of the landlord. However, things for tenants are changing thanks to the Housing Legislation Amendment Act 2021 that was passed and amends the residential tenancy act and regulations in Queensland. Its provision for domestic and family violence has been in effect since 2021 and helps renters affected by abuse to leave a rental property within seven days and only pay the rent for those days. Additionally, new reforms to be enforced in October 2022 aim to increase transparency among lessors and lessees. These reforms make fixed term tenancies better for renters and allow them to have pets without disputes and provide more stability during periodic tenancies. 

What’s more the third phase of the Act to be enforced in September 2023 improves the minimum housing standards to prevent lessors from leasing properties with significant issues like mould, leaks, pets etc. Therefore, now is the best time to rent a house/unit in Queensland, as most new reforms help lessees have better tenancies. The updates are also beneficial if you are currently in a lease agreement. So, to understand everything about the change in rental/tenancy laws, here is your complete guide. Have a look to gain valuable insights and ensure you can live comfortably during your tenancy and end it without hassle or dispute as well.
