I’m doing my small part by posting about my favourite places and why I love them.
LOCATION SUB HEADING
✅ [Tag location, shop etc]
[Write why you love about each place]
[Repeat as many times in the same post as you like but a different location each time]
Reward yourself, you deserve it. Calories don’t count in the mountains 🙂
#buyblue #bluemountains #lovelocal #[include village hashtags for each location mentioned]

Please share, like and visit if you can.
Don't spend the extra dollars on yourself, shout a friend instead!
The idea here is to visit one of your favourite locations to dine in. It can be any store to be honest, but food is easier. Have your friends guess what you ordered and the winner gets breakfast, lunch or dinner – your shout. You choose the prize. It’s your game.
You promote the venue to your friends, you and your friends engage on social media for a bit of fun and potentially the venue gets a future order, potentially future business from your friends and/or at least brand awareness for the venue. Just have fun with it.
Here’s how you can help by creating Facebook post by Checking in to a place you love:
- Step 1: Facebook Check In via Venue.
- Step 2: With Friends? Tag them into the post.
- Step 3: Explain the game about offering a free meal your expense if they guess what you or the group is ordering.
- Step 4: Post
- Step 5: Let the fun begin.

Pay It Forward!
Make someone happy!
Some venues offer the opportunity to allow you to Pay It Forward.
Typically run in cafes. You offer an amount usually the cost of a coffee so at the discretion of the cafe staff they allow someone to have a coffee for free.
What tends to happen is it becomes a conversation starter with customers as they will ask about it whilst they wait for their order.
Watch how other people want to add to the tally.
Make it easy for the venue by supplying them a template that looks better than a hand written version and stands out:
- Get this template >
- Print it
- Pass it over to a venue of your choice that offers Pay It Forward.
- Suggest it is displayed prominently.
- Start the list by paying an amount towards the list.
- Feel good 🙂
