Default The 7 Commandments of Marketing

Here is a great article by Michele Schermerhorn on marketing.

"Marketing is everything you do to promote yourself and your business. Without an aggressive marketing effort, your website is just one of eight billion listed on Google. Without an aggressive marketing effort, your store better have a location next to Walmart and hope for their overflow. How do you stand out from the crowd?"

You can catch it @ http://www.smallbusinessbrief.com/ar...ng/000639.html

Default Clown suit

Linda, Thanks for the article - I'm going to look for my clown suit (#5). The article made me think more about marketing. I've been resting too much in this area and need to become more proactive.

Nice article, Michele.

I'm a fan of the upbeat, optimistic approach that you use.

We have to get you that blog up and running so that we can read more from you like that.
