Week Four on the build

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Well we are now onto week four of our build and we now have windows, well technically they are boarded holes at the moment but they will soon be windows, and will brighten up our top floor office space beautifully.

We have even had a request that a step be put in under one of the back windows, so Bertie the office dog can look out over the fields when he is in the office with us to stop him getting bored.  We will have to wait and see what happens with that one.

This week the electrician has taken over and has got most of the wiring done inside which is great.  Our walls are really taking shape with a quick coat of white paint and a few electrical sockets around the place, it is really starting to look like an office rather than the big empty unit that we had 3 weeks ago. 

Also this week they have put in the heating and air conditioning units, which I am very excited about as my nick name in the office has always been the ice queen, as even in the summer I can be found sat in the corner with a jumper on while Fiona is melting in the other corner with the fans on her.

So all in all its been another productive week from some very tidy friendly builders well done to you all its looking great.  We cant wait to see the finished building.

Week three on the build of our new building

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

I thought i would update all of you out there that ask how are new building is coming along?  

We are now on to week three of the build and are making huge progress as you can see, we have all the flooring complete upstairs the stud work for all the walls up, windows marked out, and even a mist coat of paint downstairs on the entrance to the toilets and shower rooms.  

Although the stairs are still not in as they are away being powder coated, so ladders it is still. 

We are all very excited and have even started the decoration planning as we speak.  I think Martin is starting to worry about the thought of letting Ruth, Fiona and Myself loose on a day out to Ikea though, but I’m sure it will look fab once its done.

How do you choose the correct promotional gift for your client?

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

A survey from the Advertising Specialists Institution (ASI) revealed that 62% of recipients of promotional products go on to do business with the advertiser after receiving a promotional gift.  And 81% of people kept the product they received for a minimum of a year after receiving it.

With thousands of different products out there on the market, how do you choose the correct product to make potential, and current clients remember who you are?

Think about the market you are trying to target, you are trying to get their attention so that they have a constant reminder of your business, whether it is on their desk, on their fridge or in their bags, don’t give them a gift they will throw away as you are wasting your time and money. 

  • If you own a car garage why not put a branded keyring with the keys when you return the car, giving your customer your number to hand for the next time they have trouble or need to book the annual service and mot.
  • Another example would be magnets for plumbers if you have just finished fitting a nice new boiler, why not stick on a magnet allowing  your name and contact details to be available to the customer next time they need you.

Promotional gifts can be one of the most effective forms of advertising if you get it right.  So before you order your gifts make sure you think about who will be receiving it, will they keep it or are you throwing away your money.
