Dear Constant Engagers!
Welcome to this week’s article detailing the actions, observations & results from the previous week’s promotions of local Dublin businesses…
The aim of these articles is to inform you all, especially fellow marketeers & creative entrepreneur-types, of the positives & the negatives of this journey…it’s not for the faint hearted!
Since the beginning of September, visits to the Rising Tide website have dropped. We are still trying to figure ‘the reasons why’ out, but the answers are not apparent at the moment. Our followers on both Facebook & Instagram have increased (not by extraordinary numbers, but they continue to grow). The numbers of downloads of our Rising Tide ‘Discount or Treats’ Card have also grown steadily, too…. we’ll continue to investigate!
Last week we published our interview with @Curtis Harley from Everything Entrepreneurial. The response we have gotten was fantastic. I have since been told that the chat made one of our listeners laugh out loud whilst walking her dogs! This, as explained in the interview, is how we at The Rising Tide intend to promote local businesses – through putting smiles on people’s faces! You may listen to the podcast for yourself, by clicking the link below!
Our larger projects continue to inch forward. Our meeting last week was very positive with the request for a firm proposal for collaboration requested. This proposal will be finalised by midweek.
This, friends, is the life of an entrepreneur! Swings, roundabouts, ups, downs & everything in between…but remember: ‘if you never made a move, you’d never make a sound!’ (Noel Gallagher, Oasis)
Until next week, take care
