For the last few Saturdays, Plusnet has had a rather impressive stand at the Bullring in Birmingham, as part of our recent marketing campaign. We’ve been telling people all about our award-winning service, explaining what we do, and running competitions (come and see for yourself if you like – we’ll be there on the 17th and the 24th).
Last Saturday was extra special though, as we were joined by Eleanor Simmonds. Eleanor was just 13 when she won her two gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics swimming events, bringing her instant fame at home. Supporting us on Saturday, her bright and all-round lovely personality went down very well, and she was full of praise for what we do. Among other things, Eleanor hosted a competition for shoppers to win a year’s free broadband - where players got stuck into an interactive motion sensor game (which is almost as fun to watch as play, as people get very enthusiastic). She had a lot of nice things to say about us too: “Plusnet are really thinking differently to help save their customers money and deliver great customer service. As with every teenager, I’m always online staying in touch with friends, and Plusnet allows me to do that easily.” If you haven’t been to our stand, we’ve still got two Saturdays left. Even though Eleanor won’t be there this Saturday, we’d love you to come along. Not only will you get to play for a year’s free broadband, but we’ll also have our experts on hand to answer your questions, discuss your feedback and explain exactly what we’re all about. So, we hope to see you there, and we’ll be happy to help in any way we can!
