Talking to local Turks and Caicos business about blogging!

Even though we have been blogging about the fun times we have with destination weddings, with honeymoon couples and families for a while now (4 years) it was still a great surprise to be invited to talk to other local companies in the TCI at a business lunch hosted by Digicel this week. The talk was to be about blogging – why blog, how to blog and a few tips we have picked up along the way – nice and simple!

The event is a monthly lunch meeting hosted by the international mobile phone company Digicel. Digicel host this lunch along with RIM and Blackberry as a way of starting a conversation with local business people about their mobile needs.

I was a little unsure as to the exact audience and whether they would even have a blog yet or would be internet and social marketing gurus – perhaps no one would even show up!! Luckily Bornewell marketing had done a great job and over 25 people came along for a great lunch at the newly opened Vix restaurant near the Regent Grand Hotel.

Whilst everyone enjoyed the lunch I covered the three areas with the main message actually dovetailing nicely with the reason why Digicel do these lunches. Blogging is a great way to start a conversation and to let potential clients learn more about you and how you do things – it’s all about building trust and likeability.

It was actually a lot of fun to do. I kept it “low tech” as we were outside in the sunshine and it was wonderful of Digicel and Bornewell marketing to think of us and ask us to help.

thank you !
