#Petworthhour on Twitter. @Petworthhr
Petworth hour have been born for the idea of Sussex hour, which has provided a great service to the businesses in and around the Sussex area.
With over 40 businesses on twitter, nearly half are active users. These numbers are continually growing as people move into social media and understand the benefits to their business. My aim is to encourage as many as possible to tweet on Tuesday evening between 8-9pm about what they offer, do & provide.
Many businesses find Petworthhour a great opportunity to say what they are about and gain further support for the local community. Since its launch businesses have exchanged ideas and even sold what they offer to others. We gauge a reach of nearly 11,000 over that hour, which is huge for the size of town Petworth is.
