Liverpool baker hits out at free cake for Love Island star request

first_imgGood for you, Laura. Happens all the time in the graphic/web design industry too. Would they ask all their suppliers for free services? Nope— Nick Carter (@subcircle) July 25, 2017 The baker responded: “I can fit this in with you but it would be a paid order as it would be for anyone else, including the many high profile customers I already have.” Malin AnderssonCredit:Getty  I wasn’t kidding when I said this happens a lot. 😳 The downside to being near the top of google search for ‘cake makers in Liverpool’. 😫😡 pic.twitter.com/6XSPfdwcmE— Lauras Little Bakery (@LaurasBakery) July 25, 2017 Ms Worthington, who runs Laura’s Little Bakery, replied: “Exposure doesn’t pay my bills and I’ll be honest I think it’s a disgrace that companies like you go to small independent businesses asking for free stuff regardless of what you think the promo might do for their business, which is in fact not a lot, I can assure you.”Touch Management has been contacted for comment.How Twitter reacted Ms Worthington shared a message she says she received from Touch Management asking if she could provide a free cake, “the bigger the better”, for Ms Andersson’s boyfriend’s birthday party.“In exchange she will post a few pics on her social media tagging your brand – she has a combined following of about 630,000 followers on Instagram and Twitter so it’s brilliant promo,” it said. Malin Andersson “I wasn’t kidding when I said this happens a lot,” she posted on Twitter. “The downside to being near the top of Google search for ‘cake makers in Liverpool’.”In another post she wrote: “I will never bow down to this kind of stuff and I feel sorry for the poor company that did. Just pay for people’s services for God’s sake!” I will never bow down to this kind of stuff and I feel sorry for the poor company that did. Just pay for people’s services for gods sake!👎🏻🙄 pic.twitter.com/RIrvSEp30G— Lauras Little Bakery (@LaurasBakery) June 20, 2017 Touch Management responded: “A lot of people we work with are extremely happy to do this in exchange for social promotion as this kind of promo would usually cost brands £500 per post.” Me too. You will henceforth be my only port of call for all Liverpudlian cake-based requirements.— James O’Brien (@mrjamesob) July 26, 2017 I’m going to follow you for this. If I’m ever in Liverpool and I need a cake, as unlikely as that may be, I’m going to call you. 😀👏— Roger Moore (@SimpleBlinds67) July 26, 2017 A Liverpool bakery has criticised companies she claims have contacted her asking for free cakes in exchange for publicity on TV and social media.Baker Laura Worthington says she was approached by a talent agency managing Love Island star Malin Andersson, and separately by the X Factor, about the possibility of a collaboration. If I could spend all the ‘exposure’ I’ve been offered over the years, I would be typing this tweet from my private island made of gold. https://t.co/Wtq0WSJODl— Simon Ward (@simonjward) July 26, 2017 Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
