It’s summer, tourist peak season. Remember to make the most of tourist trade, take your business to the universal masses.

Top tip from our clients who work in construction and trades, make the most of the longer days. Summer is time for change! Many home owners use this time to clear out their gardens and renovate their homes for that BBQ season. Be prepared for one of the busiest times of the year, the August bank holiday weekend.
Why not: Update your listings on sites such as Gumtree and some of the traders sites, (ensure you include your location, the postcodes and areas you cover.) Spruce up your online profiles and connect with people online, (ensure you list all your skills and qualifications.)
Spruce up your profiles
Give your LinkedIn and Social Media profiles a summer make over. Update any skills, qualifications and any experience or achievements to encourage people to endorse and recommend you. Review keywords to ensure you are making the most of opportunities.
Why not: Update your customer personas; review, refresh and revitalise your marketing.
Social Media Savvy
Summer is a great time to connect and re-connect with your audience.
Remember, communication is a 2 way process, we encourage you to get people engaging with your posts.
Why not: Ask questions! Encourage engagement and involvement, use popular topics. Get noticed! Use personality filled content. Be fun! Use images, share photos and videos of you and your team.
Concentrate On Content
According to research undertaken by NY Times study on the Psychology of Sharing;
78% of respondents said they share information online because it enables them to stay connected to people they may not otherwise stay in touch with.
