We had such a great time at the SDGLN Scavenger Hunt mixer last night and met so many warm and friendly people!
When we first started our business, we were terrified to go to mixers and networking events, as many people are. Who wants to be dumped into a room full of strangers and hand out business cards? But soon after we lost our salesperson, we were forced to – even if we’d rather stick a fork in our eye. Two things that changed our minds about networking were going to events regularly and finding a group that embraces you. For us, the GSDBA (Greater San Diego Business Association) and the SDGLN (San Diego Gay and Lesbian News) community have been nothing but a pleasure to be a part of. Once we started going to events, we starting seeing the same people and actually having fun! Now we look forward to going to mixers because we know we will see our friends and the business connections we make come easily because we are relaxed, confident and enjoying ourselves. Networking will work for your business, check out a few different organizations, find the ones that fit your business and your personality the best and then go and have fun!

There is nothing more frustrating than spending a lot of money on something and not knowing what, if anything, you get in return. This is how a lot of small business owners feel about marketing and advertising – but it doesn’t have to be that way!
If you have a marketing pieces that you have been using and you are not getting the response you want, send it to us. We will review the ad for free and give you suggestions for changes that could increase the response you get.
