Growing MY Business To Grow YOUR Business

As I continue to meet business owners and talk about marketing their companies, I needed to take some of my own advice.

To grow this, I need to commit to the community.

This past week, I officially enrolled SaySomethingImportant in the Mooresville South Iredell Chamber of Commerce!

It was long overdue: I've done business with folks in the area, I've been a guest at several After Hours and I've even given talks to local leaders. Now that I'm a member, I'll be better accessible to new companies moving in and to established members looking for some direction in their marketing.

So, yeah...I'm excited! Look for me at a Chamber event near you!

Your message has to be witty enough to get into the consumers' brain (and by witty, I don't necessarily mean funny)...but it also needs to clearly say who you are, what you do and why I need it.

How good is your stuff? Drop me a line & we can talk about it. You may be right on the money, you may need a small tweek. I can help you Say Something Important!
