I blogged recently about how our placement students had finished up at the end of April. Shannon was helping out in the Marketing & Social Media department and one of her roles had been creating the 'Daily Dispatches' blogs.
These blogs involved going out into the warehouse and selecting some gift baskets and hampers being dispatched that day to photograph and blog about. There were 3 categories of gifts chosen to write about - gift hampers, gift baskets and fruit & flower baskets. We do many more types of baskets too, but we had to narrow it down or we could be there all day writing about all the wonderful gifts being created.
The blogs and images proved to be popular and really helped us to give an insight into what we can create and showcase this across our social media sites. You can read the previous blogs in the archives here.
I had been helping Shannon with the daily blogs on days she wasn't here or had another piece of work to complete & decided I would like to continue doing these if possible. The only problem was that I also have 1 million other things to do an a daily basis & so I decided to rope in some helpers! So now we have a bit of a rota going on in the office with myself taking care of the blogs on Monday, Roma is doing Tuesdays, Victoria is taking Wednesday, Kate is sorting Thursdays and Laura finishes with Fridays.
We think this will make the blogs even better as although they will follow the same format, you will get 5 different takes & opinions on the days dispatches and 5 different photography styles to keep things interesting.
Below are some examples of the photo collages we also create and share with the gift basket images taken.
Have you read any of our daily blogs or seen the images we share? We hope you like them and what's even better is that we've turned it into a monthly competition.
We simply ask our followers to Like, Comment or Share the daily images on our Facebook Page.
Then at the end of the month we pick one of our daily dispatch dates at random & everyone who liked or commented on that post will be entered into the draw to win a luxury gift basket.
