Abbotsbury ‘s website and e marketing needed to be strengthened in the most cost effective and efficient means available. Through committing to the Digital Destinations programme it was hoped this would be achieved and make our business more profitable as an outcome. So far we have set up, a Facebook page, a twitter account and a farm blog with the intention of linking all three through which we will run competitions and request captions for quirky pictures to achieve a better interaction with our customer-base.
