We used the Hotel San Antonio in Puerto del Carmen as our venue, and welcomed nearly 30 people to the two sessions. There were plenty of questions, and lots of interesting banter, and as always plenty of business networking after the event.
The “big tip of the day” that we shared was the Google Alert service. If you have a Google account (you can set one up free) you can receive a daily email linking you to any posts around the web mentioning your business name. Or any set of key words you choose. It’s a fantastic way to stay in touch with what is being said about your brand or business on the web. And rest assured, people ARE talking. Read more »
We’re delighted to announce that we will be presenting our Social Media Seminar in Lanzarote on Wednesday 12th January at Hotel San Antonio in Puerto del Carmen. A favourite hotel in Lanzarote.
Following the format already delivered on the mainland, we’ll be talking about social media – specifically blogging, Twitter, Facebook and You Tube, and we’ll be showing you how to:
We’ll be doing two sessions, one at 10:00 and one at 17:00, and each will last around two hours, with a question and answer session and followed by an informal chat with tea and coffee.
We were invited by a firm of accountants in Marbella to speak to their clients about blogging as a lead generation tool. CCG Spain hold regular business briefings for their clients on a wide range of topics, as part of their strategy of adding value to their customer’s businesses.
The bet was on! If Nicola Erlich spotted a photo of Mike in his speedos on the social media websites then we had to make the next “tweetup” in Marbella!
Before you ask Mike doesn’t strut around in his speedos but we do participate in the sea swimming competitions (travesías) in Lanzarote and there are often photographers at the finish line waiting to capture that moment you reach the shore again. I’m not going to paste the link to “the photo” as Mike is shy when adorned with his turbo trunks but Nicola did indeed spot a photo of him in Facebook. I must thank the person that tagged Mike as we had a fabulous trip over to Marbella :)
You may be wondering what is a tweetup?
A tweetup is a social event where tweeters (people who use twitter) meet up in person at a given time and place. For many this could be the first time they have met someone they have been following virtually online but not face to face before.
Not knowing what to expect from the Marbella scene we arrived for the Tweet Marbella #tweetup at Restaurante Guey in Nuevo Andalucia straight from the airport on the first Wednesday in November. (See twtvite)
Nicola used the event to help two new local businesses whose products were on display:
Cake Couture Marbella @cakecouturemar
The samples disappeared very quickly!
This was a chance for us to meet tweeters that we had been in contact with for some time and to make new friends, there were over 70 attendees for this occasion.
