There are no flies on us

Posted by suzichristie on July 15, 2013

I've been writting about summer pests this week and found it fun to look up some sayings about flies. I wanted to write a fun headline but I ended using them on client www.cleankill.co.uk 's social media feeds.

'No flies on us' means being quick acting or thinking which is what we were last week. On Monday we had a plea for help from a local company who wanted help with a business award entry. The deadline was the Friday! This was a company we hadn't worked with before which made the job quite challenging. But, working hand in hand with the client, we made the deadline with a few hours to spare. Interestingly, the company found us on Twitter and then 'googled' us - evidence that being on Twitter makes good business sense.

Social media brought us another new client last week. I spotted that an old school friend who I haven't seen in the flesh for decades was building a show garden at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show. I looked on the RHS Hampton Court website for a press release about her garden and couldn't see one. This was Thursday and the show started with press day the following Monday.

My friend had been so wrapped up in building her garden that she had neglected to do any PR. She took up my offer to help and, after some speedy work. we managed to get her press release live on the RHS Hampton Court website on Friday afternoon. The press release was issued to the media on the same day.

Both client were very grateful and we're hoping to work with them both again.

We love weeks that are a bit fast and furious - let's see if this one brings any surprises!
