Naughty, naughty!



Reason for the title? Well, it’s been a few days since I last posted. Surprisingly the internet has not asked why, questions have not been asked in parliament & the world has seemed to lurch on in its usual, slightly shambolic way.

Reason for the picture? Well, why not? Feeling a bit tiger-ish today. A sort of Grrrhhh, go get-em type day.

So, still to do?

Printing; oh that’s delayed so whilst I was hoping to see our 2m tall banner ready for Student Freshers Fayre I’ll have to wait another day. Same with the 10,000 flyers they were due to deliver.

Lovely delivery of loads of face paints yesterday. Just what a student needs for that Freshers week party. Could dress up like the picture above I suppose.

Our Facebook presence is beginning to grow.. We reached over 27,000 people last week. Not exactly sure what that means but it sounds a lot.

Pop over & like us & you’ll have a chance to win one of our parcels (unfortunately UK only I’m afraid)

Back to it. Apologies for not posting in the last few days. I’ll try to be better…if anyones reading this! 


Bank Holiday but still a bit of work!

It is a bank holiday here in the Uk. Surprisingly (& rarely!) the sun is shining & it is a great opportunity for families to spend some cherished time together. oh, & realise that luckily it is our last holiday until Christmas.

Here at Student Gift Parcels we’ve had a great weekend. Friends visiting with their two children who are students. A good opportunity to do some impromptu market research with our target audience. A few new parcel ideas dreamt up ready for the rush. We discounted the 5:2 diet box with the 2 diet days as the contents though!

After our mailing last week our Facebook likes continue to climb, albeit at a slower rate. We’re now up at 1240 so quite a jump & we’re pleased that they’re all students.

Next job is to engage the mums & dads who are our likely potential purchasers.

We had a call from California from a lady who stated that our card handler would not work with her US address; an issue to take up with them first thing on Tuesday as no business can afford to turn away any customers.

So picture of the day is a little montage we posted On Facebook today to try a little light comedy for our students heading off to Freshers Week over the next few weeks.


Feel free to like us on Facebook to keep abreast of what we’re trying to do.
