Christmas 2019 at Blue Whale Media.
The festive period is serious business for our team at Blue Whale Media. As soon as the clock strikes midnight on October 31st, the tinsel is up, and Christmas classics are on the radio. With such a build-up to the big day, we like to fill the near two months with exciting Christmas events, charitable events and competitions. This year, our team was jam-packed with a variety of different activities and social media events, and we’re excited to share a selection of them with you!
Office Decor is essential to our team, and this year was no exception. In the summer, we rebranded and created new brand guidelines. Our office saw a fresh coat of paint in our new and updated colours which resulted in us having to rethink our decorations for Christmas. To compliment our updated logo and new colour scheme, we had included gold elements throughout the office. This includes tinsel, tree decor and baubles that hang from the ceiling. To say that the Blue Whale Media offices are like a grotto may be an understatement!
Social Media Marketing.
Throughout the festive season, our social media marketing team like to add a sprinkle of Christmas magic to our social platforms with festive competitions and giveaways. Our 12 days of Christmas giveaway proves a popular and interactive part of our Christmas marketing every year. Each day, our social media team give away a small gift or prize to somebody that has liked and shared our status. So far, we have seen a significant increase in customer engagement.
This year we also decided to try elf on the shelf for our Facebook and Instagram stories. Each day of December, our elf Bernard has found himself some new mischief to get into. Our graphics and videography team are looking forward to creating a video showing some of Bernards best moments from December.
Every year we like to give back to our local community through a collection box. This is often filled with non-perishables and a selection of foods and drinks. This year, we have sent our care package to a local charity that works with the homeless and provides them with vital supplies through the winter.
Our team has also packaged a selection of gifts for The Samaritans Operation Christmas Child. Every year we are proud to create a small selection of thoughtful gifts that are distributed across the world to children for Christmas.
As a team, we spend time in and outside of the office together. At Christmas, our team have plenty of Christmas themed activities lined up. From gingerbread decorating to secret Santa and a Christmas quiz developed by our social media expert Eve.
Christmas is an important and exciting time of year for our team at Blue Whale Media. We are excited about the new projects that await us in 2020 and are taking the time to celebrate and reflect on our achievements from 2019. Our team extends the warmest Christmas greetings to everyone and wish a happy and prosperous new year to all.
