Behind The Scenes

Leave a Comment
Confession time. We haven't blogged for far too long. Not that it's a secret, as you can quite clearly see when we made the last addition below. Now we don't generally like to make excuses but this time we're making an exception. They all follow below.

1. Lots of swaps! Those of you already with us have been livening up recently and wanting to take many more holidays that we've previously experienced. I'd like to make it absolutely clear that we are in no way complaining. It's a very welcome challenge for the team and means improving our efficiency and behind the scenes systems has been a must.

This won't just benefit us (that would just be selfish), as some of the new methods we are putting into place will make it physically on to the website and improve how you make enquiries and the tracking of  the responses you receive. We've had superb feedback from those of you who have flown off on holidays recently and will shortly be improving it's implementation into the website with both words, and, wait for it, holiday photos! Very exciting, we're sure you'll agree.

2.  Lots of new members! We are pleased to see our numbers steadily and readily increasing. For example, we were happy to add five new properties over just this weekend and have many still in the midst of registration. It's always a pleasure to welcome people into the club and see what exciting properties they bring along with them. The property photographs within this blog are all from new members recently added to the site.

3. The Place in the Sun exhibition! (Exclamation mark added for consistency) I recently (Matt) attended the Place in the Sun exhibition in London and met with a lot of companies that we can form working relationships with to benefit both them and us. The response has already been extremely positive and many discussions are ongoing. The increase in exposure and the resulting new members helps to further expand the club and provide new and exciting places for you all to visit.

All of the above and much more behind the scenes have been going on here and I could spend much more time telling you all about it all. The only problem being I must stop and get back to everything else that needs doing.

Until next time swappers. (They'll be less of a gap this time, I promise)
