Zooming Into Christmas With Running Mate

Succulent turkey, homemade gravy, a few extra spuds and some Christmas pudding. Oh, and not forgetting plentiful chocolate oranges! This is the delicious food the bmt Promotions crew will sure to be filling our faces with this Christmas and, we will be relishing in it. The last thing we want to do is pile on too many pounds though, and this is where our wonderful customer Running Mate comes in. Susan from Running Mate believes that absolutely anyone can run, and can enjoy it and, what better way to burn off those mince pies than a jog in the fresh air.

Here are Running Mates replies to the bmt Promotions Q&A on business and Christmas:

A Christmas Q&A with Coo-Var

Christmas

It’s busy in the bmt Promotions office at this festive time of year but, with just over two weeks to go until Christmas Day all of us here are well and truly in the celebratory spirit! Last week’s Christmas question and answer session with our Director, Jack went down a storm, so we thought we’d get our customers involved in some of the yuletide fun too.

Here’s Danielle from Coo-Var, the paint and coating specialists with her answers to our Christmas questionnaire:

 

Q. How has 2017 been positive for you in business?

Well, we are all still here, so I guess that’s a positive!

Q. What difficulties have you faced in business in 2017?

In our department, it was a real struggle to assign someone to tea maker… but I did the right thing and stepped up to the job. It was a difficult decision but the best all round as I clean the cups thoroughly and now found a new hidden talent which I never knew I had.

Q. What are your hopes for your company in 2018?

That we continue to be a happy working family!

Q. How will you be spending your time over the Christmas break?

Putting on weight and enjoying family time.

Q. Which Christmas tune makes you turn your volume dial up?

All of them!

Q. What’s on your Christmas wish-list this year?

Ooooooh…. I’d love a new hoover!

Q. Do you have a favourite festive film? Yes

If so, which one? ELF!!

Q. What’s the worst Christmas present you have received?

Cooking utensils from the boyfriend on Christmas. Nothing says I love you like some large spoons.

Q. What is your favourite Christmas tipple?

Anything alcoholic!

Thank you, Danielle. We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! We hope your stocking is filled with lovely treats and not spoon this year!

A Christmas Q&A with bmt Promotions Director

It’s December and it’s time to get a little festive in the office! We’ve opened day 1 of the advent calendar, put up a Christmas tree, and we have yuletide tunes blasting from the radio. I’ve nabbed our busy Director at BMT Promotions, Jack Thomas to talk about business in 2017 and all things Christmas.

director

How has 2017 been positive for you in business?

Most significantly, we brought our search marketing operation in house & took on a dedicated employee to oversee our digital marketing activities. We are receiving lots of new business across a wide range of sectors, and our year on year turnover has increased by 34% which is very encouraging heading into 2018.

What difficulties have you faced in business in 2017?

Other than the odd computer/server problem, one occasion resulted in me not leaving the office until 3:30am – and we were leaving for the airport for our summer holiday at 6:00am! Aside from these minor difficulties, we were approached with an acquisition proposal earlier in the year which was a big crossroad in both personal & business life. Ultimately, the deal was not right for us and we continue on our path of internal growth.

What are your hopes for your company in 2018?

Our new website will be launched in January, which we are really excited about. We are looking forward to working with our existing customers, and continue to add to our customer base through 2018 & beyond.

How will you be spending your time over the Christmas break?

With my wife, son & dog in a cottage in Yorkshire. Plenty of walks & quality family time. Time to relax, reflect & re-charge ready for 2018.

Which Christmas tune makes you turn your volume dial up?

Step into Christmas – Elton John

What’s on your Christmas wish-list this year?

Terrys Chocolate Orange!

Do you have a favourite festive film? If so, which one?

Home Alone

What’s the worst Christmas present you have received?

Whisky flavoured Fudge

What is your favourite Christmas tipple?

Kraken Spiced Rum

The C Word

Its mid-October and the leaves are well and truly falling from the trees, it’s getting noticeably colder and darker and it’s time to start thinking about The C Word. No, I’m not swearing at you, I’m talking about Christmas!

Christmas is only 9 weeks away and now is the time to start thinking about rewarding your employees or treating your customers to a little gift to say “Thank You”.

If you’re going to give out a gift, why not give out a promotional item? A branded gift works well for you in two ways:

  1. The customer or employee receives a thoughtful product from yourselves therefore they are more likely to remember you positively, this is always good in business.
  2. A promotional gift emblazoned with your company name is extra exposure for yourselves and gets your brand seen.

Ok, so now you’re sold on the idea of gifting your customers and employees with a branded product, below are some ideas of items that bmt Promotions can provide for you!
