Some more pics of eBay’s Christmas promotion – and this time, fun is happening! In Manchester, there have been queues for eBay goodie bags, and one guy in Birmingham returned his new shoes to a shop when he realised he could get them cheaper on eBay.
In all, elves will be handing out more than 120,000 shopping bags with shopping guides featuring sellers and items, wrapping paper and other goodies. And a team of ‘adwalkers’ are out on busy streets giving live site demonstrations to Christmas shoppers.
If you want to catch the eBay Elves yourself (in which case, please take a camera and capture the fun for us), they’re at Glasgow and Manchester Piccadilly stations at rush hours this week, and Waterloo and Paddington next week.
Sounds like an improvement on the cardboard pissiors.
Well done eBay.
Keep those buyers heading our way eBay Elves and we will all be happy chapies !
Oh, those really are fun pictures. The sense of riotous festive fun is palpable. And it isn’t even giro day!
Derek and I had such fun lately. It was Derek’s birthday.
great marketing campaign by ebay – getting brochures into the hands of punters…credit where credits due 🙂
naff marketing campaign by ebay, done on the cheap
60 million people in the uk
and a few brochures bunged into the hands of hassled commuters rushing to work
if I really wanted to get a brochure to people I would get it thru their letter box
#5 To be fair North I get lots of junk mail and if they get a few thousand shoppers while they are buying what better time to turn them on to eBay. Plus how many go back home/to their office/to friends and tell them they met this mad guy with eBay teletubby style on their chest and it’s cheaper than the high street?
to be fair chris
I get lots of clowns and pillocks stuffing flyers in me mush while walking down the high st and wandering the shopping centers
for free meals, cheap drinks, happy hours, discounted entry fees etc etc its all a bit tacky,
I just blank them. and get on with my buying etc
if I am out shopping I am certainly not going to rush home and buy on ebay
I get what I want and came for there and then, and get on with my life
ebay need to get the buyers convinced , before they have left home or are at home, not try and entice them back home once they are on the high st
make it easy for them
rather than a daft christmas tree
have a mobile booth ,
or van, or even an argos style shop with
where punters could gain instant access to ebay, on the hoof, helped by a sales staff
You humbug North, everyone loves a Christmas tree 😀
#9 We do Chris, but with presents at the base,,
not aload of tacky old cardboard haphazardly placed around it,, it hardly shouts Satachi & Satachi 😆
#10 I blame the namby pamby society we live in that says we must have crowd control crash barriers in case some little darling hurts themselves on a tree – always someone ready to phone the old 0800-dial-a-claim and sue someone lines 😯
@chris. Could a plinth or stand have solved the H&S concens and also made the tree more prominent?
I think the problem here is that this has been done on the cheap. 😉
Well, I am an eBay Elf, at waterloo station, so do pop by and say a hello and pick up your free goodie bag.. maybe even buy us a coffee! we are there from 7am to 11am, and again from 4pm to 8pm.. 🙂
Hello eBay Elf and welcome to TameBay 😀
Is that every day or just Monday?
When is elfing just one day? for the full 5 days, and I must say, we have had an amazing response! so many of the older generation are taking this push to get them onto eBay!
now this eBay elf needs sleep!
I need to get an elf job
only 5 days a week thats some job!
I’m disappointed the elf hasn’t been using more elfing/little people puns, like they used to.
Your very good ‘elf! Haven’t you a gnome to go to etc. ;O)
ok then I will bite
A group of rebellious elves have banded together to protest the terrible conditions they’ve been working under. They are known as the Santanistas and they’re striving for higher elf esteem.
Might have to set up the RSPCE
Royal Society Prevention of Cruelty to Ebay (Staff) also known as Elves!
Haven’t you guys got anything elf to do? 😀
Just me, my-elf and I over here – working away
