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!
That’s the the thing with new businesses; you think you’ve got the great idea, it all seems feasible and then you get an attack of the collywobbles (a good old English term, I can’t remember the time I last typed that word!)
So, friends- or enemies- please provide any feedback you may have on the idea. In a nut shell we are about providing ‘stuff’ to students. This varies from themed treats to essentials. With a great range to choose from, the ability to add special things to your parcel, a personalised message & free postage we like to think it is a good offering.
So, let me have it with both barrels. Honestly! I’d rather pick up some faults now than later on.
For a more detailed view you could always pop across to Facebook
or our website.
Like us on Facebook & you’ll get special offers in the future.
I’m aware now this is turning into a bit of a sell for which I apologise as that is not the aim of this blog.
Onto a picture for today then:
Looks good enough to drink, might try one when today ends!
One of the lovely challenges facing a new business is that you are (mainly!) in control of your own destiny! Choosing new products to include in your range is always a joy. As an on line business we obviously don’t have a real shop front to display our ‘stuff’ in so getting the right products & showing them as effectively as possible is key.
So, today’s new pack to go on the website is our freshers pack.
How do we decide what to put in it?
Simple, we ask students what they’d like & we ask parents what they’d like to give. there’s usually a little common ground in the two lists.
so here’s a picture of our new pack
For those of you who are not too sure why plastic cups & ping pong balls should be included then all I can say is beer pong.
If you have any ideas of other things to add then please let us know as we’d love to here from you.
All our ‘stuff’ is available on line at
why not have a look?
