We are joining social media in a BIG way! The curling club has retained the services of Kristen Biederman, a business communications graduate who has managed social media platforms for the Shaw Festival and Niagara Casinos. Kristen and her husband own Biederman Web Consulting and she also has a creative home décor business, Hello Gorgeous. They live in Port Elgin and have 2 sons, Andy and Alex.
Why social media? As we work to attract new members to curling and to our club, we need to have an effective, modern presence with the audience that uses social media. Kristen will use her expertise to help us fill that gap. She has already pumped up our Facebook image and will soon be taking us into the world of Instagram and eventually Twitter.
How can you help? We would really like your assistance and it is easy… if you use Facebook, link to the Port Elgin Curling Club page, recommend us, like us and follow us. We have nearly 350 likes now. Let’s break the barrier of 1,000! And CONTENT for our Facebook page is always wanted. If you have any news that you would like to get out there about the club, or if you get a chance to click a picture when you are at the club or elsewhere that would be of interest or related to club activities please send everything to Kristen: email@example.com.
OUR WEB SITE:
Our website portelgincurlingclub.com is managed by club member Jim Barron. He has been working diligently at upgrading the site’s content and appearance. It looks very modern and it is very easy to navigate. When you have a chance, take a look at the web site. If you haven’t joined yet for this season you can easily look after that using tabs on the web site. In addition, you will find an FAQ page that will answer questions about the club that will be helpful for you and for new members. You may know others who are interested in curling and you can direct them to this page or use what’s there to answer questions they may have for you.
Soon to come……information regarding the opening of the Port Elgin Curling Club PRO SHOP! When you are digging out the old equipment, keep in mind you will not have to travel far to upgrade. Details in the next exciting edition of the Hog Line!
