Default Hello from Forest Grove, OR

Hello y'all,

I found this forum through Google, and am glad I did.

As for me, I do marketing... the really hard part of it. I work with a couple of joint venture partners in emerging industries. My job is to find out who's in the market for the products, and how to get the message to them.

My main partner calls it "getting inside the customer's head". It's very tedious and because I get paid AFTER sales are made, you can only imagine the financial nightmare I sometimes suffer... This isn't work for fainthearted folks.

Now I'm off to explore the forum and see if I can "get inside" some more heads as our latest products are mostly B-2-B oriented.

At the risk of receiving more messages than I can imagine, I have enabled my Yahoo IM and would love to chat with other business owners.

Welcome Shari

Great to have you here...sounds like you could give us a lesson or two on marketing. Paid after sales....now that sounds tough.

Linda
