Promo House People

Why staff are everyone’s biggest and best asset!

The most important asset at your company isn’t something you can put your hands on, it isn’t equipment, data, technology, or property. The most valuable part of your company is the people and at Promo House we are all about people and providing the best of the best so of course, they are our most important asset! This month we have had some successful campaigns out and this is mostly down to the hard work and effort of the staff working out in the field. So, we thought it was fitting that Februarys blog was all about the staff!

And here are our top ten reasons why your people are your biggest asset:

1) They are the forefront of the business
2) They are an extension of a company and any brand they represent
3) They bring our campaigns and events to life
4) They bring good energy to external brands
5) They have a passion for their career
6) Their feedback from onsite is key and helps us to improve
7) They inject fun into the workplace
8) They have the experience across the event and promotions industry to bring their knowledge to any task.
9) They are an integral part of the company’s mission.
10) They share they knowledge. We are always expanding our teams and its lovely to see some of our more experienced staff showing newer ones the do’s and don’ts and helping them.

Our most important moto and something we see reflected out in the field is Happy Staff = Happy Clients. At Promo House we truly believe this should be any companies moto!

Promo House has also been busy this month conducting mystery shops for Britvic and we have made the Britvic preferred supplier list which certainly gave us something to be merry about!

We currently have staff out in the following locations conducting the “undercover shops” shhhhh …

Moving Brand Ambassadors to The Web …

It’s no secret that the Internet has changed the Marketing industry, but it’s now all about who has the biggest social following or uploads the cutest Snapchats.

In ‘Promo’ terms, a Brand Ambassador has always related to a staff member who was, for example, handing out packets of the latest new crisps in a train station or staff member giving out free eye test for a new optician. Now don’t get us wrong we still believe face to face promotions are very important for marketing but we also know that these days a ‘Brand Ambassador’ relates largely to someone who has a heavy online influence.

Social Media is where an influential blogger with a big following can bring a brand to life and can advertise products through modern marketing techniques. Many businesses and brands now work closely with bloggers who become a ‘brand ambassador’.

Social media has dominated the marketing world recently—and who can deny the power of a great selfie—but many of these bloggers share more than just pictures. They share posts about their favourite new coconut drink, their new gym wear, codes for taxi companies they use, and this content is all specially designed to create dialogue and interest in the product and post.

Turns out, online product endorsers have more influencing power than celebrities. According to a survey by global communications firm Ketchum it was found that 20 percent of women who use social media are motivated to consider products promoted by or with a blogger they know, while only 13 percent are motivated by celebrity endorsements.

So, this is where PROMO HOUSE come in … we have the staff on our books that have large social media following to engage your product or brand effectively. Let us hand pick you the online endorsers that are completely apt for your target market and let us help you seize these opportunities in the race for online consumer engagement.

If you have a product or brand that you would like to endorse over social media, please drop us a note at or call us 0121 406 6889 and we can discuss your budget and campaign.

Interested in becoming one of our endorsers? We are always on the look of for new staffers so please get in touch too.

As always until next time keep in touch, keep it real and keep it Promo House!

Dog on the blog

Here at Promo House we’re a team full of dog lovers and we are lucky enough to have our very own office dog, meet Promo Pip ….

According to stress experts an office dog is one of the best ways of beating stress at work, lowering blood pressure and they release the human feel-good hormones and that’s just a few reasons. Here’s 8 reasons why Promo House think every company should have an office dog …

1. They’ll Be There to Greet You Every Morning
Sure, chatting with your co-workers when you arrive in the morning is nice but there’s nothing like seeing a face like Pips to start your day off right.

2. They’ll Remind You That Naptime is an Important Activity
Office pups know that naptime is a great way to re-charge in the middle of the day —and they aren’t afraid to take the shut-eye they need. Pip can often be found cozying up on one of our bean bags.

3. You Don’t Even Have to Pay Them
Office pups are perfect employees. They’ll show up every day with a smile, ready to do their job around the office, and they’ll never ask for anything in return (Although rumor has it that Pip gets paid under the table in milkybar buttons.)

4. They’ll Represent Your Company with Pride
Pups often become the unofficial mascot of companies, but it’s a role they’re perfectly happy to take on. Pip is no exception, she even has her very own custom outfit’s and wears them every chance she gets, proudly spreading the company’s message to everyone who comes to pet her.

5. They’ll Make Sure You Get Up and Move Around
With a dog around, you’ll never again sit at your desk for countless hours without moving a muscle. Pip is always ready to remind her fellow employees that it’s time to go for a lunchtime walk.

6. They’ll Help You Get Your Work Done
Nothing is better than having somebody to bounce ideas off of or to tell your frustrations to

7. They’ll Encourage Office Bonding
Nothing brings people together like playing with a cute pup.

8. They’ll Keep Your Seat Warm
Tired of co-workers sneaking off with your favourite chair? Office guard dogs will make sure to keep it safe while you’re off in meetings—or at least keep it warm. Pip show us how it’s done …
