“Inspire a Generation”
If you’re not in London or if you’re in a part of the UK nowhere near the Olympic Games, the Torch Relay has been slowly making its way through the UK, passing the live music fest in Dyce, Aberdeen, moving to Grampian then Baxter Park in Dundee and recently, helping light up the sunrise at the Calanais Standing Stones.
For businesses and restaurants along the Torch Relay route, you may have noticed that the streets are bursting full of potential customers. How will you connect with them? You can’t exactly perch on your doorstep and call them into your shop. Not every neighborhood is Brick Lane.
Use social media. Post special Olympic deals on your Facebook page. Tweet discounted menu items. Offer coupons on your blog. Schedule social media messages from an unlimited number of social profiles so you’re free to greet customers in person.
