“I am so glad you do this every year. I get to know amazing businesses that I otherwise wouldn’t have heard of”

“…lots of exposure and reached people who might not have known about us beforehand.”

Ana Aguilar-Corney draws on two quotes, the first from a prizewinner, the second, from a local business owner, to assess the impact of Bees Homes’ annual 12 Days of Christmas giveaway,

Chris Hoadley of So Legal conducting a live draw with Ellie under the guidance of MD Ana.

As in previous years, the Bees Homes team were out and about in Sussex interviewing local businesses each of whom donated a prize that would be drawn during a live Facebook session in the run-up to Christmas.  

Ana even found time on the way back from an interview for an impromptu slot on BBC Radio Sussex’s Danny Pike show to describe the campaign!

Participating businesses: Bella June Flowers of Hassocks, Harry Batten Cakes of Haywards Heath, Wingrove House of Alfriston, Brighton Christmas Trees, Brighton Gin, Globalls of Brighton, The Yew Tree of Arlington, Hamilton Home Staging of Eastbourne, Bluebell Vineyard of Sheffield Park, The Hormone Centre of Seaford, Ravilious Boutique Hotel of Eastbourne and Knockhatch Ski and Snowboard Centre of Hailsham.

A first in 2022! Reflecting Bees Homes’ desire to promote businesses that help improve people’s lives, was the inclusion of a private hormone centre that supports women through their menopause journey.

With more than 25,000 Facebook interactions and a host of new customers banging on the doors of those businesses who took part, Bees Homes was delighted to get this feedback:

“We were very happy with the video, the campaign and the follow-up choosing the winner”

As no doubt were the lucky winners who will be booking their meals/stays, taking to the slopes, downing their drinks, salivating over their cake, admiring their table wreath, while reimagining their home!

Roll on December 2023!
