Parent Power from Octopus Energy
The main mission of Mrs Mummypenny is for everyone who reads this blog to save money and/or make money. One of the quickest and easiest ways to save money is to switch your energy company. Yes to the 35% of the population being loyal to your company for several years (sourcing this Energy Savings Trust post ). Yes, to those same people sitting on a standard tariff. You are paying too much money for your energy. The Energy Savings Trust estimate that these people could have saved an incredible £1,500 during their six years of not switching their energy company.
How about if you switch to a company that will save you money. AND that company will pay your children’s school £50? Not just that either. For every parent at your school who does the same and switches their energy the school will receive £50 for EVERY parent who switches. This is a big WIN – WIN.
I personally switched to Octopus energy in August 2017 and have been really impressed with their competitive pricing, it was the best deal on the market. They have outstanding customer services as recently tested by me and the only energy company recommended by Which. I am a huge advocate of Octopus energy and would love for everyone to switch to them and save money.
Let’s imagine the scenario.
I tell my children’s schools fund raising committee/ PTA all about this wonderful scheme. They register with some very basic details, school name, email address. They then receive a unique web address along with some super useful marketing material to tell the parents all about the scheme. Parents will need to use this Octopus web address to get a quote for their energy bill and for Octopus to trace the £50 payments back to the school.
Then its time to get sharing in parent Facebook groups. Maybe a mention in the school weekly newsletter or a Tweet? My children’s school has around 350 pupils so maybe 250 parents considering siblings. If just 10% of those parents took advantage of the offer and sign up to Octopus Energy, that’s £1,250 given to my children’s school. The parents save with lower energy bills WIN. The school get a stack of extra cash WIN.
The scheme is open to all schools and sports clubs. So if you are part of a football club or a dance school or brownies or anything, get them involved! Basically any organisation that your children are part of.
