Hey, I’ve found a business that’s using Twitter effectively. It’s a bar. In fact the owner says “It’s a foundational part of his marketing!” Crazy, huh? And the thing is, he’s not doing anything that special!
Steve Vallas is an ex-lawyer and cab driver who a few years ago decided that world needed another bar. So he left the law and went and started Honey Bar … a very cool, inner-city bar in South Melbourne.
What’s particularly interesting is that he attributes his simple Twitter strategy to the successful marketing of his business. #UnheardOf
So join me as Steve reveals how to market a bar on Twitter plus:
- Why we all need to find our inner mongrel
- The importance of looking ahead and knowing what’s next in your personal and business development
- Plus plenty more marketing gold.
Oh, and I also get on my soapbox and rant about three customer service experiences I’ve been a part of this week that have cost the three businesses a combined total of $40,010.90.
