WEDNESDAY 27th March 2013
What can we say about the weather?
Just incredible and bizarre!
Of course it caused untold disruption and misery for so many people and businesses, but I have to say that it forced me into taking a ‘duvet day’ last Friday, which I badly needed and thoroughly enjoyed.
I also got a huge amount of work done (in my PJ’s and therefore much more productive, of course!)
Just one major headline for this Blog, and that is The Giant Chester Food, Drink & Lifestyle Festival taking place at Chester racecourse this weekend, and now in its 12th year(!). This once again promises to be a FABULOUS Event showcasing the very best Food and Drink producers from all around the region. We’ll also enjoy superb cooking demo’s from our very favourite Chef’s including Mr David Mooney (my personal fave!), Simon Rimmer, Michael Caines and Gary Usher. Make sure you check out the Chef demo timetable on the festival website so you don’t miss any of these fantastic MASTERS AT WORK!
We will be there on our We Love Cheshire stand with some little Easter treats to give away, and some of our WLC friends will be dropping by too so please come and say hello.
You also may be aware that I provide a social media service to independent lifestyle businesses, which I really LOVE!
Just to demonstrate the power of using social media effectively for your business, I posted 3 different Easter competitions for 3 different local businesses yesterday (The Chester Fields Country Pub Restaurant, The Coach House Inn, Chester and Red Door, Chester). All 3 posts have gone viral, but The Coach House response has been more than remarkable. The competition is still running and as of now (8am on Wednesday), the post has been ‘shared’ over 4,500 times and ‘liked’ 1,639 times. This has added nearly 1000 new ‘page likes’ in just 24 hours. It has most definitely gone viral, and it’s still going!
I look after the Facebook fan pages for the following companies:
The Chester Fields Country Pub & Restaurant
The Coach House Inn
Old Hall Country Club & Spa
The Ship Inn, Handbridge
Red Door West Kirby
Red Door Chester
Edgar House (stunning new Guesthouse on the city walls overlooking the river)
And of course We Love Cheshire…
Let me know if I can look after your business social media, I’d really LOVE to!
Thanks for listening and have a very Happy Easter x
