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.
