The power of social media – even in pest management!

4 Jun

Well what a week it has been and as the title says, mostly due to the power of social media. Last week I blogged, tweeted and pattered about our amazing contract managing the bird control at St George’s Chapel in Gt Yarmouth, a listed building and all the challenges that it presented with dealing with English Heritage, RSPB and architects to name a few.  Following on from that blog, the phones have been ringing of the hook from all areas of the UK including Surrey, Lancashire and Essex.  We have also been contacted by a major regional building company to speak to them about future contracts too; the power of social media!

At first I was generally sceptical about blogs and Twitter as it was something that was out of my comfort zone, but since using it consistently and regularly and engaging with others for a bit of chit-chat, my profile has risen considerably and the added bonus is of course, is that it’s free! 

So taking off my ‘grumpy old man’ head, I am a convert, albeit a fairly recent one and I intend to continue using social media for the foreseeable future to entertain, advise and engage with and meet other people.

      I think that’s a brilliant idea – there was an interesting discussion in the week on Jeremy Vine show about pest control too and it’s defintely something that’s being talked about currently, particularly with Local Government cutting their spend.
