What Works in Rural Marketing Today: Be heard without shouting. Your marketing messages are being lost in the ocean of information.

How can you get your important communication through?

How can you market, advertise or advocate when no one is listening?

Once you know how you make a difference in the world, then it’s a matter of layering the details. Join us for this interactive webinar and learn how you can put layering into practice in your very next email, social update or printed item. You’ll create valuable messages that get through and get remembered.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Becky McCray. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Will we end up with a society that discriminates based on vaccination status? Will large events and venues require vaccination records for entrance? Or will they segregate people into vaccinated and unvaccinated sections? Or will the businesses and venues just accept the legal liability? I am sure Disney is having these and other difficult conversations right now.

The one "social" conference I look forward to each year. The speakers are varied and interesting. Last year, I left with 9 action items. That's a pretty good success! Here's my affiliate link: http://smtulsa2015.eventbrite.com/?aff=speakerspecial&afu=1187722262

Can you serve moscato with Thanksgiving dinner?

Coworking is strong trend in small towns. Potential business owners can start without the overhead of a whole building themselves and they benefit from interaction and support within the community. Always an honor when +Rex Hammock and crew pick up one of my articles for +SmallBusiness.com. 
A small town coworking space is a smart place to focus economic development along Main Street. It can be a great small business, as well.

Viniq Simmery really is... shimmery!
I had to get you a video because a photo just doesn't do it justice... Watch them swirl!! Posted by Allen's Retail Liquors, Alva, OK on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 The bottle is perfectly clear. All the color and shimmery come from the liqueur itself!
