WOW...things have been happening around here and I have found myself going 24/7 and still can't keep up so this will be a catch up to a few things.
February 9th (HERE) I posted I was featured on Womenwise Marketing and I have received several emails and a few phone calls asking if I would share my secret to getting my name out there. Girls it is no secret, anyone can do it. You just have to do a little leg work or as some do keep tabs on other blogs to see what they are doing. As for Womenwise Marketing, I have been receiving Kelly's newsletter for sometime now and she invites you to complete a questionnaire to be featured. That's all there is to it. So if you are a women in business visit Kelly Watson's website Womenwise Marketing and complete her questionnaire and you too could be featured. I can't promise you will be featured, but if you don't try you will never know. I will even give you the direct link just as I did the girls that contacted me. Good Luck and I look forward to hearing "You are featured" on Kelly's site soon. Don't forget to sign up for her newsletter while you are there!
Marketing yourself just takes time and persistence. It is not something you do for a few days or weeks and then move on to something else. You work at it non-stop reaching for quality contacts, not quantity! It will pay off not always right then, but somewhere along the way.
I along with several of the MMCA Marketplace members were invited to participate in an exhibition at Arts on Union Gallery & Studio in Middletown, PA "Celebrating Women In History" during the month of March, featuring paintings, jewelry, photography & more by local, regional and national women artists. Thanks Christine Goldbeck!
KC's boyfriend participated in an event on Ossabaw Island just south of Savannah during part of his Spring Break and while there he collected a few seashells for me. Tell me he is not trying to stay on my good side!
As most of you know MMCA has a new home and the neighborhood is growing. To quote my friend and artist, Elaine Brady Smith..."The social networks are your front porch or your neighborhood. You can walk about and see what everyone is doing...what is going on in your community. You don't have to if you don't want to...you can just stay to yourself and be quiet if you choose...but if you want to...everyone is there and you can have a look-see at what they are up to and report on your own shenanigans, show your pictures and join in discussions whenever you want." If you would like to be a part of MMCA's social network, we invite you to join us.
And until next time.....I leave you with just a small grouping of treasures I have collected since our move here. The small jars are from special beach days at St. Simons Island, Fernandina Beach and Ponte Verde Beach. Each jar in filled with shells collected and the tops have been labeled with the beach and date.
