The PR Guru

November 25, 2009

Christmas has come (a bit) early

Very rarely do I get overcome by the Christmas Spirit this early. In fact, usually, I refuse to accept Christmas is here until about 6pm on Dec 24th.

This year has been so good though that I’m prepared to make an exception. For some bizarre reason I have decided to give away a fantastic, brand new laptop!

Win win win win win win

And one of you, my wonderful readers, will be the lucky winner!

I wonder if the other PR agencies in Staffordshire are feeling this benevolent? Does this always happen to PR people, or is it justΒ me?

Anyway it’s a great bit of kit, with webcam, 3GB memory and 160GB hard drive, and that Windows 7 everyone’s banging on about. Oh and Microsoft Office 2007.

It’s worth about Β£400 altogether. I must be losing my mind.

All you have to do is subscribe to this blog (and leave a comment), follow me on Twitter, or become a fan of Richard Swancott Associates on Facebook.

You could even do all three as there’s no limit to the number of entries – why not give yourself a better chance of winning?

What a nice Christmas pressie for someone

The closing date is Wed 16th Dec and we’ll be accepting no entries after 12noon. We’ll do the draw that afternoon and sprint to the Post Office in time to get it over to you. P&P is free too.

As always though with these things, there has to be some rules. No-one associated with me (i.e. family and friends), or anyone employed by Richard Swancott Associates is allowed to enter.

No ITV-style competition rigging here, thank you very much.

And you have to be UK based to stand a chance of winning.

So, that’s it! Good luck, and will someone please wake me up in January when all this nonsense is over?!

Bah humbug.

    • Maybe I should have given drinks away instead then!

      Would’ve been a lot cheaper! πŸ™‚
