We’re crying into our cornflakes here at TechPixies HQ! We’re experiencing major FOMO after looking at the scroll-stopping images of The Bull Shed and remembering that we’re never going to get the chance to stay at this gorgeous getaway. Because its owners, Amanda and Lee Jay Burningham, decided to hang up their hospitality hats and close the doors to their luxury B&B in 2019.
But, lucky for us, the couple is here on this week’s Sparkle and Thrive podcast to share all their top marketing tips and tricks; imparting all those little nuggets that helped them win the five-star reviews and press coverage that every small business owner dreams of.
Yes, it helped that Amanda is a MasterChef quarter-finalist; yes 👩🍳, it’s a bonus that Lee Jay is the self-confessed king of ‘candles and atmos’; and, yes, it’s definitely an advantage that Lee Jay and Amanda have years of marketing and social media expertise under their built (one of them is even a former Facebook employee). But as every good TechPixie knows, knowledge doesn’t get you anywhere unless you apply it and take action 💪.
