In a time long ago…

Cue the Star Wars music….

Before the arrival of #DevonHour, and the dawn of #TorbayHour, a quiet chap sat down and registered #BoostTorbay with plans to make the towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham the place to come for business, tourism and shopping.

End the Star wars music

Ok, 3 years ago I sat down and registered BoostTorbay on twitter, we had quite a bold vision, a very bold statement was made on ourleaflets, twitter feed and everywhere else we popped up.  The twitter account was registered and we told new people who followed us to simply put #BoostTorbay into their tweets and we would Re-Tweet (RT) them.

Then the snow ball effect happened more people began to use #BoostTorbay, we’ve promoted pictures of cake, seaside, products your selling, events, businesses and everything in between.  We’ve helped people build business relationships and it is possible that maybe one or two have formed personal relationships.

Fast forward 3 year and what has changed?  Well we’re still RT your tweets, we still reply to your tweets and we’ve got involved in community projects up and down Torbay.  We have been frowned upon by some, and smiled upon by others.  #BoostTorbay was started to help raise awareness of Torbay, we had major plans for our hash tag and have helped with the launch of a localised market, a localised discount card scheme and have even popped our logo on new park builds.

We hope you will continue to use #BoostTorbay in your tweets and remember we’re always around if you need us.
