Star Pubs & Bars lessees benefit from social media training

Surfing for Success

‘Surfing for Success’ is a workshop that looks at how to get the most out of social media; including how to run advertising campaigns, how to reach new customers, as well as when and what to post. These sessions have been running already and lessees are making some great progress with their social media activities…

Louise, The Dolphin - Since the course, Louise has now set up a YouTube channel and is uploading videos of events taking place at The Dolphin. She has been regularly posting on Twitter and Facebook, setting a goal of reaching 800 likes on Facebook, which she is well on her way to achieving. Louise found the course extremely beneficial and was able to see the impact of social media from both a customer and lessee perspective.

Lee, The Good Companion – Lee really enjoyed the day and feels that social media will be a great tool for him moving forwards. Lee was already up to speed with lots of likes on Facebook and followers on Twitter, but the course taught him how to fine tune his pages and upload his menu using the menu tab application.

Martin & Liz, The Phoenix – Martin and Liz found the workshop really useful and informative. Martin considered himself to be competent in social media but learned new things that he wasn’t previously aware of. The tools he was introduced to on the day have since created more of an interest from the locals and he has started to notice the rise in ‘likes’ on Facebook and followers on Twitter. Martin has uploaded his menu to the Facebook page and is using Hootsuite to manage the social media activity overall. In general, Martin and Liz found the workshop extremely helpful and would recommend it to all lessees.

Sandra, The Turks – Since attending the workshop, Sandra has achieved one of her first objectives of setting up a Twitter profile. She will be sending a colleague to the course in the future as she feels it is important that there are other team members who benefit from the course too.

Surfing for Success runs from 9.30 AM to 4.00 PM and can be arranged for a group of lessees or for a multiple lessee and their managers.
