GiffGaff annual meeting of Staff and users

I am suggesting that GiffGaff have a once a year gathering of all who would like to Get Together (GTG) in a logical venue.

 

This is a well tested and tried method of promotion of a company.  O2 sort of do it with their Priority system for O2 users.

 

There are several advantages to this idea.

 

The main one is the promotion of their network and a place where people can get to see everyone connected with GiffGaff in an official but light heated way. 

 

Another advantage would be that GiffGaff users could swap ideas and I am sure some good would come out of it for GiffGaff.

 

There is an obvious place to hold this gathering … GiffGaff have some connections with a well known company “O2”. So the obvious place would be the O2 centre in London on a weekend day

 

Entertainment and refreshment could also be laid on and even if costs had to be covered by GiffGaff members with a small charge payable in advance from their credit I think there may well be sufficient takers for this idea.

 

Another way of covering costs would be to allow Mobile hone companies and accessory makers to promote their products. They would obviously like to show off their latest and best products to us all in the hope that we buy one of their products. A cheap form of advertising to an already interested audience.

 

GiffGaff come in for plenty of “Stick” on their forum .. Generally people seem to only write a post if they are having a problem or want to complain and this looks bad always.. I am sure there are far more users who are totally happy but you never hear from those.. Incidentally I am one of the happy ones, but, I use the forum to gain ideas and also to help others who are having problems.

 

So GiffGaff Company … What do you think of the idea ?

 

GiffGaff users … What do you think of the idea ?

I like the idea but I doubt it will happen. What can be done or said in a face to face meeting that can't over a chatroom or forum?

We also invited members to our Softball game/BBQ - and there's always an open invitation to the office. 

 

We do try, but honestly - not alot of people are up for the travelling.

I've been to 3 events, and that wasn't all of them.

 

Although it costs something to get there I reckoned I could afford to spend on the train fare as they've been generous with payback.

I went to Xmas party and it was exactly the atmosphere (and a lot of free alcohol).

I would suggest a SUMMER gathering.

 

Apart from that .. If entertainment was laid on .. O2 could and I expect would assist with that this would be a whole new experience on what otentially could be a huge scale.

 

Xmas parties are all well and god but so many peple will be immersed at hat time of year with office parties, family ties etc and the weather would also probably hamper things a lot.

 

I do atend some other Get Togethers .. Nt all in the UK .. I travel to the US for some ... they have ALWAYS been good fun .. I even have organised some of them ... In the USA.  People travelled from all over the US, Asia and Europe to join in the fun.

 

Think abot it GiffGaff ... Promotion works   especially if it is irrestible.

"O2 could and I expect would assist with that this"

 

They wouldn't - sorry. 

 

However I really love this idea - I'll PM you about it after a bit more discussion has taken place :smileyhappy:
