Whew! Creating a new website is no minor undertaking — I shouldn’t complain, however, since the capable young man at Millennium Marketing Solutions who created our website did the lion’s share of the work for us. But I am happy not to have to do that again for another few years (the “old” website was a dinosaur after eight years).
I am also very excited about our new look and our ability to update the news and the community calendar at any minute, so we are an even more critical news resource to the local business community.
The Business Monthly website is also another marketing opportunity for businesses in the area. We can now link videos, as well as ads, to a client’s website.
Yes, There Is an App for That
We are now one of two Maryland newspapers that can be downloaded, so you can read us on most of your digital devices. See our ad on the back page for directions or go to our website, www.bizmonthly.com to check it out.
Come often, as one of my new, five-months-into-the-new-year resolutions is to upload local news regularly. I hope you will visit us and take advantage of all that our website and app have to offer. We made them just for you.
As chair of this year’s Power of the Purse, sponsored by Her Mind Magazine and Blossoms of Hope, I am using all of my resources to ensure it is a successful event. Proceeds go to Blossoms of Hope (www.blossomsofhope.org) and benefit the Claudia Mayer/Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center.
We need to collect 2,000 gently-used or new purses for the event, to be held on Monday, June 12 (see the ad on page 3). It is a lot of fun: shopping with wine supplied by Iron Bridge Wine Co. and food provided by Maggiano’s and Seasons 52. A silent auction with lots of great items (and even some high-end designer purses) will be available.
What we don’t sell, we donate to Success In Style so it has purses for its clients all year long.
Since it is time for spring cleaning, and guys, you can encourage your wife or friends to participate, why not see what you have that you want to pass on (and it is tax deductible). Our deadline is May 19, so please visit your closets now. Drop-off locations are listed, or write me at [email protected]. I’ll arrange a pick-up.
And then be sure to mark your calendar for June 12. And, it is not for women only!
Thanks, and I hope you find our new website useful. Let me know by emailing [email protected]. You also can add your events online.
