Now why on earth was the Director at our hosting company driving around Belfast all day giving donuts out to various agencies? Because he (and his company) gets it. They get how to do something offline that will jump online for relatively little cost.

If you had to work out a cost for getting those companies and their staff to talk about your business all day how much do you think it you run you? A damn lot more than it does to pay for some donuts, some petrol and taking a day off to deliver some donuts.
It isn't only the fact I think it was a good way to get cheap publicity, they have already proven their levels of support are excellent and their prices/offers are competitive so they have sat and worked out what they can do to delight their clients and potential clients that doesn't involve the standard hosting fare.
Big Wet Fish just get it, they get our industry, they get what makes us happy and each day they deliver it (either in the form of excellent service or in the form of donuts!) and for this reason I have absolutely no bother in recommending them to everyone.
