Planet Vending & OCS launches new Spotlight series

It seems that summer is pretty much over, and that means that a new term is about to start and with that there comes a new focus on pushing sales and in our case, for our clients and readers, pushing awareness of their business and brands through a new Spotlight series amongst other features.

During the summer we haven’t been lying back and soaking up the sun,  we’ve been working hard on a number of initiatives that are designed to give vending and associated businesses a further platform to spread the word.


As usual, at the heart of Planet Vending is the written word, and so as you’d expect, we are championing a new series of articles and features that will be SEO’d to the hilt and heavy with key words and phrases, whilst not compromising on the quality of the message. Every single ‘post’ is distributed across all our social media network and sent out to our email subscribers. There’s no point in going to the trouble of writing and publishing if your story sits static on a page!

First up will be a Spotlight series that will run to the end of the end of the year, and we’re close to confirming the topics for the first six months of 2020. The schedule is below… Each Spotlight consists of an separate mailer to our email subscribers and each article has its own page  and is distributed widely to our social media network including Linked In.

Second, and this will be running alongside the Spotlight series from September to March is a brand new fortnightly feature called 2020 Vision – Your View. Initially key influencers within the industry are being invited to take part however if you’d like to be involved, please get in touch with us here and we’ll send you further details and the schedule. There is only one business per feature so it is your chance to be exclusively in the limelight for two weeks. Tell us your visions and predictions of coming trends.
