It is always nice to be complimented, to be congratulated and encouraged for doing things a certain way. To be recognised as being on the right track.
Here at Lifetime we strive to be different. Being the same as the majority of finance firms does not ‘float our boat’.
Our social media policy is to engage as well as try to educate, to communicate in a lively, informative, innovative way. Yes, we sometimes talk about what we do, financial planning, pensions etc, but we also use our social media platforms to participate in conversations, share ideas and thoughts, and offer people a window into who we are as people. All with a sense of fun and adventure.
So it was lovely to receive a couple of great Twitter messages from Steve Bee, who, on Twitter, goes by the name of @PensionsGuru.
Steve has for decades been one of the industry’s most high profile pundits and most influential thinkers, receiving a number of accolades for his cartoons on pensions.
After we had put up a Twitter message with a youtube link to our ‘Here Is A Man/Big Questions’ video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdVxmrLojiQ) Steve posted his own Twitter comment, saying “I really like this company and this video.”
On thanking Steve for his kind words, the ‘Pension Guru’ replied: “You’re welcome. It’s refreshing to see the kind of things you are using to reach out to people. Keep it up!”
We will, Steve, we will. Especially when we get the sort of feedback that you have given us.
It just goes to show we are on the right track!
