Hello everyone. Chef Ricky here. I wanted to ask a question or 2 and add my thoughts briefly to the group.
First what is the difference between a forum and a blog? I mean really after being a part of these forums I really am not seeing much difference other than layout really. And again just my opinion but if there are some differences you know of I would love to hear them.
Secondly we run a blog and post new content regularly but for some reason are struggling to get regular interaction on our blog. You can view our blog at http://classycateringcreations.com/blog further more we have a recipe center that is composed of blog posts and sorted accordingly with sub categories.
In addition we have a facebook page that can be found at http://www.facebook.com/classycateringcreations, once again we post content regularly and frequently. Yet we only have 1,431 likers/fans. And again we are getting minimal interaction regardless of the types of posts we make. We run regular events on facebook like our FREE For All Friday event that invites anyone to post on our wall/timeline the things that matter to you regardless of if its a personal post or for business and self promotional purposes. If we ask a question or ask for opinions we still dont get any interaction. SO I ask where is the hiccup?
We also have put out an ebook that is a guide to finding the right caterer for you, all we asked for in return is a name and email address. We have repeatedly blasted it on multiple social networks that we are active and again minimal results. You can find our form and get our ebook at http://classycateringcreations.com
We put out a petition on twitition that would help guide us as a society and make a difference in the horrid epidemic of diabetes and obesity and again minimal results. It can be found at http://twitition.com/akzi8
The one thing we have noticed is that our activeness and responsiveness on twitter has made a 50% increase of our fan base over the last 2 months since we made it a priority to become active. But again people are not taking action on our tweets. you can find us on twitter at @http://www.twitter.com/ccateringc
So with all of this I would love to know where it is that we are going wrong? What are you seeing that perhaps I am not because I am “Too Close”? I am open to suggestions and ideas. Its become obvious there is a hiccup somewhere and I am just not seeing it.
There is a quote this situation reminds me of and that is “If you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got.” it was written by W. L. Bateman. So with that quote on my mind I know its time to make changes to get the results I am looking for. Can anyone help???- Chef Ricky
