“#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.”
“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.”
“We benefit so much from #WorcestershireHour in terms of support from businesses and individuals. Our volunteer numbers are through the roof and our service awareness is so much better since we went live on Twitter. We can’t imagine how we would do our community work without #WorcestershireHour”
