I have been glancing over posts when I have time, but haven't been posting lately. But sheesh that puppy at the top of the page is getting naggy...
So I thought I'd give a quick update on why I haven't been posting.
After the success at the Trade Show (we won first prize for best use of space in the multiple booth category) that was completely attributable to the fact that several of us small business owners worked together to pay for, set-up and staff the booth. I was inspired to re-vamp my cooperative marketing shop local campaign that I originally developed and presented for the Chamber of Commerce last November for a holiday promotion and take it directly to the merchants of town without the Chamber umbrella.
It officially launched day before yesterday with 21 local businesses participating and so far the buzz has been amazing amongst both the merchants involved and the customers. So much so that I had to have more customer registration cards printed and more merchants want to join the promotion (or at least I am getting referrals for other merchants who want to join the program that I have to follow up with on Monday).
You can see the web part of the customer side of the promotion at http://shopinwhitecourt.com
So that's what I've been busy with. First pulling all the elements together, then visiting every potential merchant that I could think of and now with the management and updates of the promotion...on top of keeping up with my regular client work and the new leads that have come in just from promoting the promotion...so that's why I haven't been posting much here lately.
