My first step was to try having something with my business logo in most of the pictures. Every office has its fair share of business cards, pens, key chains etc. My thought was to promote random acts of kindness, office style, using my pens with our business name and logo on them. I put up a few pictures of Elf in the office; he filed papers, trimmed the Christmas tree, organized my business cards and helped with other duties around the office.
Soon people were watching, now it was time to get him out doing other things. He shoveled the sidewalk, which made a great picture with a huge shovel laid out on the walk with little Elf barely hanging on. He drove the work truck, and did other little yard tasks too. One picture that had a large response, was during our cookie exchange where a snapshot was taken of him in the tins of cookies with a little frosting on his face.
My new challenge will be to create new ideas for this year and not let myself fall back on past posts in order to keep our followers interested. Elf will be back in the office doing tasks, but I will also try to get him out into the community and give businesses a hand here and there.
