”As a sponsor of #WH we have been fortunate to get to know lots of local business people. We have found out about shops & services we didn’t even know we had on our doorstep. A great way to get to know the people you pass in the street & what’s going on around the county’’Dani James
“#WorcestershireHour is something I have been a part of since week 3 and I have felt the benefits of it for just as long. Social media is a very powerful tool in modern marketing practice, however, the problems can arise from business practise jarring with social media. By having these “hours” outside of the working day, the people tweeting tend to be a little more relaxed, and moreover a little more social. These “hours” therefore become a fantastic opportunity to meet and socialise with businesses in a way that can lead to business being conducted in a more natural and unhurried manner, oppose to the usual old and forced sales style many are used to.
The achievements and accomplishments of #WorcestershireHour are particularly impressive. The people who attend the events and partake in the “hours” are eager and engaged and I quite often witness deals being made and meetings being arranged for potential future business endeavours.
We have been exceptionally successful here at F8, having built relationships with Astons Coaches, Magic Whiteboard, Chores Cleaning, Gravity Credit Control and of course Stuart Allen himself, all through #WorcestershireHour either online or at one of their events.
In short, we would highly recommended #WorcestershireHour.”Hamish Gill
“As soon as I met Stuart I was sold on the idea of Worcestershire Hour and became a sponsor! My business is promoting Apprenticeships to small businesses and Worcestershire Hour has helped me gain new followers and in return created new vacancies for the young people of Worcestershire!
“We get 12 to 15 good leads a week from Twitter and apart from recommendations it is by far our best source of new business.”Darren Wilkins
