#Q3: A Social Outlook For Ryan
At the turn of the year we at Ryan made a conscious push not only to grow the business but to build the ‘Brand’. We started the year in a positive mood fresh from the Christmas break and finished Q1 on a real high, turnover was up and the effort to spread the Ryan philosophy was a success. We ran a highly effective Road to Wembley competition which kept interest high and provided one lucky winner the chance of a VIP day out to watch the national team play at the home of football.
With so much effort going into this we all knew it would be hard to maintain momentum throughout Q2, especially with the expected quiet periods as people took their holidays and were gearing up towards the Euros (we won’t go there). But in typical Ryan fashion we got our heads down and tried to make life as easy as possible for our customers. Our focus and determination is paying off and it looks as though 2016 could be the most successful year yet, with turnover on course for a record high.
We also launched our Road to Lingfield Competition. It was a referral based campaign with the prize being a Grandstand Suite at Lingfield Racecourse overlooking the finish line. The competition came to fruition through our partnership with Lingfield which has grown from strength to strength since the start of the year. Lingfield had been let down by their car supplier and were in desperate need of vehicles immediately. We were able to supply the vehicles they needed in time for the start of the season and our relationship has been blossoming ever since.
Moving forward into Q3 we as a company are focusing heavily on the social media aspect of our business, with a new website up and running and an enthusiastic team developing our Facebook, Twitter and new Instagram pages. These outlets will have all of the latest updates, news, offers and upcoming events. The next date for your diary will be 23rd September; the Ryan Vehicles Charity Golf Day with all profits going to www.rockinghorse.org.uk a Brighton-based children’s charity.
