August so far has been a cracker! Literally non-stop every working day, either making new leads or signing up new contracts. But August sometimes can be a quiet month due to the school holidays and families going away for a few weeks.
So why the upturn in productivity? Well I think it’s purely down to people holding back over the last couple of years until they are confident enough that things are going to improve economically, and so are now spending on their homes again.
Whether this is on a large scale or just us I don’t know. But I’d like to think our new and improved websites and updated product range has a little something to do with it.
Of course there will be a time where it dies down and the traditional winter quiet time comes, so we’ll make hay while the sun shines and pocket as much as we can!
>Hi DGB – any chance you can reinstate the 'questionnable' button?
>Absolutely not! Why?
>Well, I'm not likely to buy you a drink am I? You don't turn up to events. The problem is 'worth the read', 'interesting' and 'buy DGB a drink' are all positive responses.
You'd be better giving people the opportunity to disagree, or not have any options at all imho.
>RCG – you never know. I might get my Dad to turn up to one with me! I changed 'questionable' to 'buy DGB a drink' because some very bored person kept ticking that box, even on the hairy fairy posts that didn't really provoke any sort of response, hence me changing it. If people disagree with the posts they can always write a short comment explaining why.
>I disagree with post
I would never buy you a drink
>Anon – why do you disagree?
>Extremely educational article. Furthermore I really mean it
