Guest Relations!

I have started to write e-mails for LFC. This gives me exposure communicating with the guest and answering any frequently asked questions. Guest relations is very important aspect of many companies and at LFC it is no different. My goal is to communicate with each inquiry in a positive way and send them to our main website, FB and Pinterest to offer more visuals of the properties.

I write each e-mail as a draft and then re-read each e-mail out loud (smiling of course to sound friendly) to make certain it flows properly. After I double check my work a LFC team member proof reads it (because mistakes can happen) before sending it off to the client.

Writing e-mails is actually a lot of fun! I feel like I wait by the computer for the response 🙂

I’ve been re-pinned~

I can’t deny it….I love Pinterest! It is such a great way to share ideas and photos. Everything from do-it-yourself (DIY) projects to landscaping. With that being said, I posted my blog information on my personal Pinterest account. (My Pinterest) It recived a like from a personal friend and a re-pin from someone else, pinned under the board Flash 145 – Internship.

Now, I am not sure what this means BUT I can assume it is something positive. Other pins on the pinboard were among the topic of internship, college students or careers.

I have tried reaching out to the person who pinned the blog but they do not have an e-mail listed! If you are reading this…. THANK YOU!

This or That?

Maintaining the LFC social media pages can be slightly challenging. I have learned that it is important to test different styles of posts to see which fans respond to the most.

Since LFC has over 30 fans on FB, it is easy to track how many people “saw” a post. The “saw” post gives two options 1) Organic which tracks the number of people who saw the post either on their news feed or ticker 2) Viral tracks how many saw the post in a friends news feed.

I have noticed that pictures get the best reaction, especially cute pictures. For example: I shared a photo from Walt Disney World that featured Animal Kingdoms baby animals. Who would not want to see a baby elephant or giraffe? That particular post was seen by 48 people, 4 of which were viral and the remaining was organic.

This also worked in my favor because the post was shard from Walt Disney World and their post was very active. The number of people who shared the post was much lower than the people who liked or commented. You never know, someone may want to see who shared the post. If they did then they saw Lakefront Cottages Vacation Rentals happened to be on of them.

Today I made more of an interactive post. *Screen shot posted below* I asked if anyone had any fun plans for the 3 day weekend. Most people are off and spend this time with their loved ones at the beach or BBQ etc. I have noticed that perhaps interactive posts are not ready for us. My goal is to create posts (within time) that are interactive and people respond too. This will come in time when the number of fans increase.

Until Next Time =)Image

Day of Sunshine (:

LFC Case Study is unique in many ways and one of them is the level of involvement. Not only do I create ways for exposure for LFC, I am also involved with landscaping! Today a member of the LFC team and I sprayed round-up on the beach of the cottages where the Osprey, Eagles Nest and Blue Heron are located.

This was…. Exciting because of the increase in water levels. Thanks to the many storms the water level has risen quite a bit. This makes to the experience that much more interesting. Using a Chuck Wagon the LFC team member drove the Chuck Wagon through the water where plants have grown while I sprayed the weeds!

Can’t wait to see the results and a even prettier white beach! **Did not get a picture of the excitement*

But I did get a picture of the Sunset Cottage where I was able to enjoy dinner.

LFC Pinterest : To view LFC

Just when I feel like I am pinning my little heart way on Pinterest someone re-pins something or likes something of LFC! This is exciting because this means what I am doing is working and reaching out to people. Creating EXPOSURE!

Yay:)
