Let's make #PortHour a thing

February 21, 2017


FROM next Monday, we're going to try something on social media aimed at giving everyone in Newport the chance to tell their good news stories for free.

Here's how #PortHour works: every Monday from 8pm to 9pm you can promote your business, or charity, or gig, or fundraising event, or special offers, or sports match, or ... pretty much anything via a special hashtag on Twitter.

Lots of towns, cites and regions around the UK stage a social media 'hour' and many are hugely successful with tens of thousands of people using the hashtag or following the Twitter account.

But Newport doesn't have one.

It was tried a few years ago but, for whatever reason, doesn't appear to have been successful.

So I've set up and will manage the @PortHour account on Twitter and all you have to do to take part in #PortHour is to follow the account and use the hashtag.

It's as simple as that.

There's no catch and I'm not making any money out of it (though I won't deny it helps to raise the profile of my business).

In my view, anything that helps the many people in Newport doing fantastic things get their stories out to a wider audience is worth a go.

I'll be promoting the first #PortHour ahead of next Monday's launch on social media and my website and I hope you'll do the same.

Remember - #PortHour takes place on Twitter every Monday from next Monday from 8pm to 9pm.

See you there.
