Ever stumped for words?

Are you ever stumped for words? Would you talk to this dog?

Dr Feelgood were playing Wisbech Rock Festival on Sunday, and as we’re currently foster caring for Shaman’s Legacy Dog Rescue, we thought we’d take our little friend with us to see how she did in the crowds.  She was a star – very sociable with everybody and every dog she met…and she met quite a few!

Any dog owner will tell you that they speak to more people when they have their dog with them. Dogs break down the social barriers (real and imagined) that prevent people from talking to each other.  All sorts of different types of people felt comfortable to come and speak to us and our dog – people who would never have done so under other circumstances. And it made the occasion much more interesting and enjoyable.

Businesses are sometimes struck dumb when it comes to joining the social media conversation. Lack of time, lack of confidence or just lack of something to say – We can help. Every business faces different marketing challenges but these challenges are unlikely to be unique or unsurpassable. We’re professional marketers and communicators and we’ll present your business in the way you’d like on social media.

Give a Bit: Social Media for Social Change

GiveBit is a charitable fundraising tool for the social media world. Re-tweeting one of their registered charity posts won’t just spread the word to your followers, you’ll also be donating £1 to the chosen cause.

For a charity with any size of Twitter presence, this looks like a great idea. Not only is it free for charities to sign up, they get 100% of what has been donated. GiveBit do take a 5% slice, but this is added to the person donating’s bill – for every £1 they donate, they are charged £1.05p. It should also help to build your Twitter following and interest will build.

And for any business looking to beef up their own Corporate Social Responsibility angle, promoting GiveBit to your employees or your own Twitter followers makes it an easy win – win!
