TECH TALK with Jessie B.
We have been hard at work bringing Baltimore Marine Centers into social media and the internet. You have a lot of choices out there; we want to make our services the most convenient and our customer service the most accessible. We have over 3,000 followers on Facebook (that’s more followers than any marina in the WORLD) and over 600 on Twitter. We are committed to staying connected with our customers on a daily basis and making the information you need a click (or a tap!) away.
What can BMC’s social media do for you?
First, it's an excellent way to connect with your fellow boaters and make new friends! If you interacted with our “BMC Plank Wars” last weekend (BMC YouTube video), you also know it can be hilarious! So, if you’re going to spend hours mindlessly stalking people on Facebook, why not stalk us? :-)
Secondly, it can be a great way to tell us what we can do better. If you want us to extend fuel pier hours, offer new services, etc., just drop a comment on our page and we'll typically respond within minutes!  We've also added new apps on our pages, so check them out (they're located under the profile pictures of the page)!
 Twitter:  @BMCMarinas
Twitter gives you up to the minute info on what’s happening at the marinas, as well as great retweets with fascinating boating and Baltimore news.  We LOVE tweeting! Have something to say? Tweet us @bmcmarinas. We offer freebies (Orioles tickets, free cozies, etc) and special promotions regularly.            
BMC’s Mobile APP
Download our app for up to date fuel prices, upcoming events, tweets, newsletters, weather, marina photos and more, all from your smartphone! Search for “BMC Marinas” in the Android market or, for iPhones, go to this site on your phone: www.bmcmarinas.isites.us
 Got questions?
Email me or stop by BMC Lighthouse Point during the week and I’ll help you navigate all of BMC’s internet wonders!
See you on the web!
