“I use social media as an idea generator, trend mapper and strategic compass for all of our online business ventures.” ~ Paul Barron
“Be genuine. Be nice. Know your audience. Articles on web design, color, inspiration and basics of design really help them. Novice articles are the best — my audience doesn’t benefit from intermediate or advanced design topics.” ~ Calvin Lee
"Do not take NO as an answer for your dreams." ~ Lyss Stern, Divalyssious Moms
Attelia Baby, is a new boutique store carrying pregnancy, baby and children's products located on Main Street in Port Washington. Momtrepreneur Yi Wang will be at our event to meet you!! She's generously donated water bottles and gift certificates for our gift bags!!!
"Claim your parking spot." ~ Beth Granger (as quoted in a Newsday article about establishing a presence across social media platforms)
Begin thinking of the State of Your Social Media Experience and where your challenges are in preparation for Wed.
"Social Media tools may be free for you to use, but never expect that social media marketing results come for free. If nothing else – you have to spend hundreds of (wo)man hours on building the relationships and the community. In fact, that's the best way – do it yourself because then you can be authentic you and on the brand." ~ Katja Presnal, Skimbaco Lifestyle
We are getting more social by the second! Thank you fellow Momma Adina Genn for the feature in the Port Washington Patch!!
