Domino's Pizza Top Father's Day Gift Ideas

Here's some perfect ideas for Father's Day presents for the man who has everything.

- Socks – it’s a classic idea and something that no-one can never have enough of

- Chore credits – write a ‘cheque book’ of chore credits for tasks such as mowing the lawn that you’ll do for Dad

- Ties – another classic but it’s also a great excuse to get rid of dodgy novelty ties that may be lurking in his wardrobe

- DVDs – whether he’s a Trekkie or a Gleek, he’ll need something to watch in between the football

- An activity day – send him off to drive a supercar or push him over the edge with a day’s zorbing

- CDs – there’s always a special compilation CD for such occasions. Take a look at the latest tunes for Dads or make your own if his taste is a little unique

- Treat Dad to dinner in his favourite armchair by ordering a Domino’s Pizza for delivery. It’ll also save on washing up!

KLM Advertise Their Economy Comfort Class in a Novel Way

If you want to generate talkaboutability for the amazing levels of seating comfort offered by your airline, then what better way than to advertise on an airport concourse with literally thousands of passing customers who are about to get onto, or who have just got off from, an aeroplane with restricted space between the seats?

Look how many people are taking photographs and videos ready to upload to their blogs, Twitter or Facebook.

And then film the event yourself, upload it to youTube and allow it to "go viral".

If only it were that simple.

Domino's Pizza Launches National Foursquare Promotion

Domino’s Pizza, the UK’s leading pizza delivery company, has teamed up with social media location application Foursquare to offer Foursquare users both discounts for all and a special free pizza offer for the mayor of any Domino’s store.

With immediate effect, every Wednesday will see the mayor of any Domino’s store receive a free small pizza. In addition, any Foursquare user who checks in at a Domino’s store and spends over £10 will receive a free garlic pizza bread.

The deal was arranged web company Vexed, one of Domino’s digital agencies.

Chris Moore, CEO of Domino’s Pizza, said: “Our customers are heavy users of social media, so it makes sense for us to communicate with them in this way. Following the success of our recent Facebook superfan initiative and affiliates’ widget, Foursquare was the obvious next step.

“Our franchisees up and down the country are looking forward to welcoming their mayors every day of the week – but especially on Wednesdays when we will be cementing the relationship with a free small pizza.”
