Hey everybody. It's your girl Renee from Cork and tours. my first experience going live. I was just holding my phone like this and I was like I think I'm live am. I live. Okay there we go. Alright. We are live. Lots of people like six 700 people watch which I thought that was amazing. I make sure that I'm committed to my social media because that's where the bread and butter is right. That's where we really make our money. That's where we connect with our audience and it's the only money I really spend on marketing. Nobody knew how this is gonna play out how long it was gonna be so I was like well. let's just have some fun with this and somehow karaoke became a part of the equation. Alright you guys. We're gonna do some karaoke right now. Those lives. They started out three times a week and I was growing by no less than 10150 new likes and followers every week and I couldn't believe it. I was like wow. this really works, but it was really more conversation about what I had for breakfast who else likes this local restaurant and then it started becoming pitching local restaurants and wineries. so then they would act. Come on to the Facebook live feed and I'd have a conversation with them. I am here with Anne to tell all of you what you can expect when you come to Fabio, everybody say hello to when covet hit, we put ourselves out there and made a safe place for them just to learn what else was open and who was doing delivery. When things were back to normal, We very quickly had more people wanna do tours than we could actually do, but I brought some guests over because I want them to see your vines. So now we have tours. Every weekend, and it's fantastic one of the best things that came out of it was all of the connections we made with other businesses working really hard to stay alive. All of us came together and supported each other promoted each other's businesses. So now it's grown into supporting local restaurants, wineries and breweries. I want to be able to do something to differentiate us and that became a lot of new clients for us and built us into a much stronger business community. What can we take away from Renee's story?
