The TGI Friday Megamug prize with pen and teabags Awards Entry Competition

I’m ploughing through some awards entries at the moment. Urgh its like wading through treacle especially if you are entering multiple categories. The problem is that they all have similar judging criteria designed to produce submissions from multiple entrants that must look fairly similar – “We bend over backwards to provide our customers with great service” etc.

There is even one criterion within a VoIP category that asks whether we support dial up! And you get about 350 words to cover:

Price and value for money
Differentiation from competitors
Level of customer care
Value Added Services
Scope of service
Security capabilities
Network and technology strengths
Service reach and capacity
Flexibility and scalability
Reliability and levels of service
Entry level broadband package etc etc etc

It’s a challenge especially when most ISPs in the UK sell the same bland commoditised services (except for top B2B operators like Timico of course – we wrap ours up in funky business grade bundles with 24×7 support and throw in innovation, flexibility, security, scalability and all the rest of it – comes naturally, it’s in the DNA :) )

So, bearing in mind this is Friday (TGI) and Friday is competition day I’m going to come up with an innovative competition that you can all enter. Also the prize this time is not just a fabulous Timico Megamug with terrific velvety smooth writing Timico pen. This time I’m going to throw in a box of teabags (brand TBC but it will be English breakfast – whatever is on offer in Tesco).

Gap while I try and think of a competition>



Ok got it.

All I need you to do is tell me why you deserve to win and what you would do with the prize. Get entering.

PS there are no judging criteria – write what you like, I’ll pick the winner I like.

PPS I like the idea of having a Awards Night. Worth giving some thought to.

    You can always try President Davies, The Right Honourable Mr Davies, Davina Mccall Davies etc. etc. every time they cotton on to the previous one 😉

  2. MarkJ says:

    Verity should tell the caller you’re in a meeting at the House of Lords where the topic of nuisance calls is being debated :) .

    Anyway it’s a useful tactic for identifying information sources for spam callers and I do something similar. Never used “Lord” though.

    That’s a brilliant idea. Lady Hemingway has a very nice ring to it, as does Baroness Hemingway :)

    ha. Lady Doyle has a ring to it. Mrs Doyle would love that. So would Dougal.

    or Sir Trefor Davies

  6. Verity says:

    I have to fight back the giggles every time someone asks for Reverend or Lord Davies.
    Maybe some of the other guys should do it? Would make all the sales calls I get alot more interesting that’s for sure.

  7. Faye says:

    I remember having to field cold calls for the illustrious Tref when I worked in Timico Client Services a few years ago… anyone who asked to speak to ‘Tree-four’ was given very short shrift! 😉

    I’m not sure Sir is usually an option. I’ll try that next time as a bit of market research.
