Ten ways Blumers have helped us
Posted by Alexander on 22/05/2019

Le Patron Blumes Ici as the French almost say. And we have been living up to this.  As a start-up ourselves we have benefited enormously from the array of talented Blumers.  This has been helpful and an almighty relief – Blume really is excellent! Here are ten of the best we have hired and the tasks they completed for us.

  Task Their profile
Carole We needed somebody to complete our accounts and file them in the right places.  Carole did all this efficiently, straightforwardly and with such reassuring rigour that we are already using her for another project.
Carolyn wrote some really useful and pleasurably readable content for the site – and is now managing twitter and facebook for us
David David set up a wordpress blog for me comparing fish and chips in Whitehall deparments (The Chil-cod Enquiry) and did some user testing of the site
Fleur Fleur transcribed a thirty minute radio show by the comedian Sarah Kendall (long story – literally) and she did it in just over two hours with unerring accuracy.
Henry Henry videoed and recorded the Blume choir and combined huge professionalism (and fancy equipment) whilst making the whole process very relaxed and laid back.  Watch the results!
Mark I was sitting on a pile of 200 unsold copies of a book I’d written (astonishing I know).  I wanted to send them to Local Authority Chief Executives.  Mark research the right addresses, collected the books and then packed and posted them.
Nicola Nicole spent a day researching our competitors.  She produced a phenomenal amount of information and organised it in an accessible way – and added her own insights.  We now know all the tricks!
Norma Norma has helped us loads!  She smoothly organised the aforementioned Blume choir event and she has also helped us manage the recruitment of Blumers from the administration of the responses to conducting the telephone interviews.  And she is now helping us organise an event – sponsored by Blume -for over 130 small businesses in Hackney.
Sean Sean is an experienced journalist who not only set up our initial facebook page but also made sure the content was appealing and looked great.
Steven Steven is an experienced sales and marketing executive.  I booked a fireside chat – just an hour - with him to get advice on how we could generate more recruitment business for Blume.
