The first ever PADI DSD Pool party was organised and hosted by CY Dive in Pafos, Cyprus. This highly successful event happened on the 8th of June 2015.

CY Dive invited 50 Sales Representatives from the Tour operator TUI. The goal of this event was to show and to explain the participants what diving is all about and that they could also do a Discover Scuba Diving session in the Pool. Thanks to the great facility which CY Dive provides to their customers, it was quite easy to attract the guests to try the Discover Scuba Diving program and to sign up for a PADI Open Water Diver Course.
During the event PADI Regional Manager, Sascha Engeler, showed the Participants how to become a certified diver and what they can do following certification.
For some of the participants, the whole PADI DSD Pool party even became a life changing experience!
After all the in-water activities, CY Dive provided a fantastic barbeque for all the attendees. People were dancing around the pool and it became the first real CY Dive Pool party in 2015.It was a great and successful event and I can only highly recommend that you will try this kind of event also in your Dive Centre.
In addition to being a lot of fun, it´s also a great diver acquisition tool as all the staff members are present and able to talk about their experiences of becoming a diver, and how their lives changed since they became Divers.
Thank you CY Dive for being such an amazing host. I´m sure we will continue with this event in 2016.
In the course of my travels visiting different dive centres around the regions, I often notice that many still use a Facebook profile for their business. Now not only is this against Facebook terms and conditions and potentially you stand to loose all your contacts if Facebook delete the profile. I’ve seen it happen, a profile with 2000+ friends gone – and you’ll get no response from Facebook. Continue reading “Moving from Facebook profile to Business page”
Twitter Cards aren’t that new (they were launched mid 2012), but they are certainly still not that well known out in the wider world. In this article I will explain what Twitter cards are and how you can implement them. Continue reading “Twitter Cards”
In this article we take a quick look at how you can make life easier for yourself. Reluctant Twitter using dive centres often worry about having to generate content for their Facebook page and for Twitter. Posting to both takes up more time then posting to one. I hope that in the few simple steps I outline below that I can show you that linking your Facebook page to your Twitter account is a simple process that means you only have to post once.

A lot of Dive centre owners ask me, if they should be on twitter. I always say yes your centre should be. I also have a lot telling me that they don’t like/get/understand/have time for Twitter. Again my answer is simple its a business tool and you should be using it if you want to grow your business. You probably don’t like doing your stock take but you still need to do it.
