My name is Pleiades. You can call me Pleia. It rhymes with beer | Pleia Alberts #ProudProfile
I still have my Grade 1 report where it says “Pleiades is a daydreamer and spends too much time staring out of the window”. As a natural introvert I’m a pluviophile who loves books, tea, cats, staircases, rainbows, Alice in Wonderland and Mozart. I’m a Sushi Ho.
In my previous life I was a skinny goth girl with some tattoos, lots of body piercings and a plethora of Human Resources qualifications. One of the best placements I ever made was an Airport Manager, in one day (hi Gary). I still love recruitment, career counselling and assessing psychometric profiles but I fell in love with all things digital and technology and found myself stuck in a rut in a dead end job with no outlet for creativity in a world filled with extroverts.
I’m now a much healthier looking mom of two girls, a toddler and a teenager, I have more tattoos and I found a new love in the world of digital at 3am walking the floorboards with a new born. I love competitions. I love entering them, winning them and I love the creativity, mechanism and brand awareness around how they work and how they get people talking and interacting. I love the excitement. I love competitions.
So it made sense (at 3am) to start Premium Prizes with a vision of being the #1 competition portal in South Africa with all major competitions from all major brands being listed on one central website. We advertise your competition and push more traffic to your platforms or manage your competition by creating a lead generation campaign and sending you highly targeted pre-qualified entrants.
With the advent of social media and the majority of competitions being run via Facebook and Twitter, the natural progression has been to expand our services into social media consultation, setup, content creation and competition management.
