    worrying that royal mail feel they have the time to organise and admin a
    frivolous competition at Christmas time

      Worrying that someone running a small business might consider a company with the resources of Royal Mail highlighting their small businesses a waste of time….

    I would be happier if they concentrated on delivering our parcels.

    I’m not sure if their marketing dept would have much impact on operations or other areas of their business but well done on sucking the fun out of a christmas competition though. £1000 would really help me out at this time of year

      not much point in a marketing dept then

      lol how much resources do you think it takes to run a small competition?
      Sandra the work-experience girl is probably heading this endeavour in her free time.
      the over 100,000 posties and sorting staff will be unimpeded by it.
      you may aswell lament the impact of the £2,000 prize money on their bottom line.

      its not just a one off thing with them, its a major operation
      judging by our mail box
      royal mail seems to often try gimmicky marketing mail shots and promos
      which judging by their loss of market share, seems not to be effective

    Another pointless ‘initiative’ from Royal Mail, I’m not going to waste my time for a mere chance of winning £1000. Not worth the effort, now if they ran a competition where they PROMISED to fix to most voted for problem at Royal Mail, then I would take part.

    C’mon guys – Bah Humbug eh?
    Enter if you fancy it.
    Don’t bother if you don’t.
    Sometimes we all need some positive thoughts to push our businesses forward.
    You need to try lots of things to get a couple of successes.
    On the plus side, dissing something has a positive to it – the less people who enter, the better chance the rest of us have….
