The assignment for this week’s blog post is to find a business on Twitter and see how they do their advertising and promoting. I will also check on how many times a day or week they actually tweet about their business. The company on Twitter I have chosen is The Waring House https://twitter.com/TheWaringHouse . I will explain in my post how they use Twitter to post, advertise and promote special occasion menus to their followers.

What is The Waring House? Some people call it a restaurant, others call it a venue. Well, it is both and much more! The Waring House is divided into 10 different service facilities all from one organization. The Main House and Amelia’s Garden Restaurant, Barley Room Pub, Waring Hall and the Cookery School,  The Garden Spa , Vineyard View Cottage, The House Next Door, Reception and Office, Artist in Residence, Heritage Lodge & the Brian Cardy Boardroom and The Quaker Lodge & the Garden Spa.

The Waring House is using Twitter to get out there, with almost 900 follows, this small town Inn is starting to get recognition. They are advertising different events such as, menu specials, fundraising, Barley Room Pub,about 2-3 times a week. From lobster fest to surf and turfs you can find just about every event happening at The Waring House. The Barely Pub has gone live  http://waringhouse.com/sample-menu-pub-p12.php which will help boost sales and get more customers involved. They also have a Day Spa in the Quaker Lodge plus a Garden Spa which sounds intriguing! They also are advertising for Cooking School Classes, if you want to learn how to cook, this might be a good place to start. All this information is on Twitter, The Waring House is full of surprises!

In conclusion, I would like to say The Waring House is using their Twitter account regularly and is focused on detailed information and is easy to follow and navigate through, however, I feel they could improve by interacting a little more with their followers. Thus said, I am excited as to how far they have come and seeing what they have to offer, my next trip to the county will be to The Waring House Spa. Looks divine!

Healthy living is another category that plays a huge part in the harmony of the Roots organization and providing healthy tips to all their readers. With entertainment from fashion shows to campaigning in different provinces to launch their new products. Roots have also been working to promote Canadian travel and economic development encouraging cutomers to travel Canada and worldwide. Roots loves to stay current in all aspects of the company. As well as staying current Roots remains in the news with all previous categories style, health and wellness, entertainment and current affairs.

Style with roots, who would have thought there was actually style in Roots! Well, I would have never guessed it.There is something for everyone, from travelling backpacks to jeans for men, the denim enthusiasts. Then there is the Oxblood hanbags, such a huge hit for Roots, very stylist, durable and in three different styles. Bold and vibrant these bags can match any outfit.

Healthy Living with Roots, this is surprising to find a clothing store interested in healthy living. Roots is a huge promoter of Roots Walk the Walk so Kids Can Talk campaign. This charity is in 40 communities across Canada. This is the country’s largest walk in support of child and youth mental health and well-being. So impressive!

In the entertainment segment Roots is just out there. They have fashion shows, which are alot of fun, especially if you are involved in them. For the Caribana Carnival in Toronto this coming year, Roots is celebrating the Caribana culture with T shirts “I love T.O” which is a part of show your roots collection. Roots was in a  partnership with the popular television show, Degrassi: The Next Genera­tion, Roots was featured in the program’s season in July. That is totally amazing!

The next catecory is Current Affairs. Roots recently partenered with Minute Maid to provide support for Big Brothers and Sisters of Canada. This just goes to show that Roots is involved in many different events in several provinces across Canada.

Roots in the News! All previous cateegories have been in the news, with styling, clothing, handbags, health and wellness, entertainment and current affairs.

In conclusion, I would like to say that overall I am impressed with the way Roots does business. I am particularly proud that this is a Canadian Comapny and they have promoted them selves with class.  I was not aware how involved they were, just not in surrounding communities, but very involved in Canada as a whole. Their product speaks for themselves! I recommend that Roots continue to keep Canada and the Global Market informed with new products, promotions and community activities on their Blog. Roots is Blogging in Style!

This is my very first time using WordPress so hopefully this gets posted and sent off to my teacher. I love using social media! I have gotten very good on twitter with my home base business and have over 1000 followers. I use Linked In as well and I pin a few things on Pintrest. I am so excited to learn more about social media and how it can help my business grow. I am fascinated on how many followers a person can get in such a short time, it just amazes me. I love posting motivational quotes and business information and daily I get followers in Twitter. I use Facebook quite a bit as well and have a fan page which is finally starting to generate likes. I do most of my communication for my business through social media, and have met some amazing people in the process.

Yes, I use some social media sites but I need to be able to manouver better with LinkedIn and IBO Social sites. It is a learning processr and takes me a while to figure things out. I love the fact that I can advertise for free, make discounted offers and promote my products.

I look forward to learning more effective ways to use social media and and other ways to connect globally to the health Industry market.

Thank You
