Putting the ‘social’ back in to social media
The brain child of Martin Thomas @MANDARINLEISURE LincsConnect was originally set up in 2012 as an anonymous social enterprise twitter account to help local businesses to connect with each other. The account rapidly gained popularity around Lincolnshire so with over 3000 local followers the decision was made that Martin should declare ownership and set up a local monthly networking meeting at the Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa. The first meeting was in February 2014 and wouldn’t have happened without the support of the Petwood Hotel and a hand full of loyal followers.
The account was designed to connect businesses, charities and potential customers and has been extremely successful in making connections and helping people to publicise their work to a wide audience.
The following has grown and is still growing steadily so with that popularity it makes sense to expand the brand with a website which will include further features and promotions from photographers, authors, musicians and much more besides.
LincsConnect is destined to evolve and grow which means this site will grow and evolve too. LincsConnect is here for ‘you’ so if there is a feature that you would like to see here please let us know. We can’t guarantee that every feature will be included but we shall certainly research each idea and if there is a viable benefit to the Lincolnshire community we shall try our best to add it in.
