And the Winner is…. Ellybabe.… A Blogger blogging about her…
Great news recently came into the Flowers Made Easy office; we have been nominated for three awards in the Social Media Awards 2011. We are thrilled with the nominations and hope we can come away with an award on the night.
We have been nominated for three awards on the night, including;
Best business Twitter account: Here we have been nominated alongside some great competition such as TV3 Expose, Newstalk 106-108 and the Irish Food Guide. We take our twitter account very seriously at Flowers Made Easy, using it as a tool to engage with the public by listening, contributing to and starting interesting topical conversations. Twitter really is a magical tool enabling you to engage with people that it may otherwise be nearly impossible to engage with on a daily basis.
Best blog for a business: We are thrilled with this nomination! We have been nominated alongside A-Wear, Tourism Ireland and Rabo Direct among others. “Content is King,” is a phrase that always gets used in our office. Blogging is an important aspect for our business for many reasons. It gives us a chance to show the public that we truly care for them by giving tips and advice on many different topics from flowers and floristry to Feng Shui. Additionally we host our competitions on our blog, and let the public know what is going on within the company at any given time. We aim at posting blogs with a conversational voice and listen and respond to all comments.
Best online PR campaign: We have been nominated alongside great companies such as Pizza Hut and Vodafone Ireland among others. Once again we are absolutely delighted with this nomination. Our focus on PR campaigns has always been on creativity and innovation. We always try and stay one step ahead of our competitors by daring to do things that nobody else is doing or perhaps doing things in a way that is different from our competitors. This past Mother’s Day we launched www.flowersmadeeasy.tv where people from abroad could upload a video message to their mum in Ireland and their mum could then see this message. We thought it was a brilliant way to connect sons and daughters with their mothers on Mother’s Day as so many Irish youths have emigrated in the last few years.
We are delighted with all our nominations and wish everyone the best of luck on the day! Check out www.socialmediaawards.com to see the full list of categories and nominees.
