Big Pond's housewarming gift 
8th-Jun-2008 10:51 am

We got a mail redirection service recently (free) and it meant we got put on the list for some related product and service mailing lists. Big Pond (broadband service) sent this in the mail not long after and I think it's an awesome little marketing tool. Inside the brochure, it says:

You've found your new home.
You've moved in.
And in true Australian style, we would now like
to offer you a pot plant by way of a housewarming gift.
Unfortunately the pot and plant didn't fit into this envelope,
so we've sent you the seeds instead.
It's just our way of saying welcome.

It's inexpensive and very imaginative. Even the copy sounds so personal and thoughtful.

I can't wait to plant these. (^0^)/

Yeah they are awesome until you want to take your address off the list, and then you call up (the only way) to remove it, and they bounce you from menu to menu and then this person will answer and say "oh you will need to go from this menu to remove" and bounce you back to something you were at like 15 minutes ago.


I gave up eventually. They are still sending me nonsense =p

The petunia looks lovely! *-* Can't wait to see them seeds grow up all healthy and start blossoming!
