Yesterday was a busy day in terms of implementing new marketing ideas! We saw our first ever billboard erected on the ring road around San Miguel de Salinas, which Ollie designed (after several ideas by me having been rejected by both Ollie and Sorelle for being too old-fashioned and basically....er....rubbish!) The billboard will remain in place for at least 12 months and will hopefully put us even more on the map!
Also, we took up an offer from Juanjo (probably the best plumber and air-con guy in town) to advertise our properties prominently in his office in the church square. Hopefully in this way we can help each other's businesses to grow, and of course it's an opportunity for our owners to have their properties seen in not one but two prominent windows in the town. Juanjo hasn't got room to show off all our properties at the same time, but we will be rotating them every week or two. I don't mean turning them upside down......you know what I mean!
The church square in San Miguel is currently under renovation and we look forward to bringing you photos of what it looks like after the makeover is complete! I know my friend Corrina who runs the Jota Jota (or JJ's) bar in the square is looking forward to it becoming a focal point for the village again. Another new bar has opened just around the corner where Mariano Internacional used to be. It's called the Chill and Grill Bar and although we haven't tried it ourselves yet, we are hearing some excellent reports about the place, especially the food!
