#HolsDirect Twitter Hour Mon 3rd April

#HolsDirect is a Twitter Hour run by Book your Holiday Direct Twitter Hour every Monday evening from 7pm to 8pm (UK time) and 8pm to 9pm (in France)

The aim is to help show everyone the advantage of booking holidays direct with the owner.  In this way both holiday home owners and holidaymakers avoid the booking fees that many online listing sites charge.  Have you see how much these are?  If not have a read here.

Helping the #HolsDirect Twitter Hour to Grow 

The aim of #HolsDirect Hour is to help owners get more direct bookings through spreading the #HolsDirect message about booking direct. Over the last 2 weeks we have given some ideas about how you can help the Hour to grow which you can read here and here.   One of the best ways to get your tweets Retweeted is to tag other Twitter users.  Last week, Linda from @Rattys_Retreat mentioned the @CotswoldFarmPrk and @AdamHenson of Country File fame in a tweet about what to see and do locally.   Adam picked up on this Tweet and Retweeted it to his 45.7K followers helping the number of accounts the #HolsDirect hashtag reached by the end of the hour to exceed 60,000.

So if you can, when answering the questions or tweeting during #HolsDirect, tag other local businesses. 

Try also to give both our group and the map a mention.
