Back from AOPA
in Las Vegas and the Women's Health Boutique
's Annual Trade Show and Conference in Cypress, Texas.
No disrespect to Vegas BUT the WHB ladies (and guy) know how to party! I'm soo tired. We had such an awesome time and they were such a fantastic audience that I'm adding Mastectomy Marketing as an option at sign up.
If you are interested in Mastectomy Marketing email newsletter, go to the blog
and sign up for the newsletter and choose Mastectomy Marketing as your list option. It will be coming out every six weeks (not almost every week like this one!)
If you were at AOPA and I didn't get to meet you in person - I'm sorry! I hope you'll come to the New England show
(for Lizzypalooza) in November or will make it to the AAOP meeting
in Orlando in Feb/March.Save The Date!
OPAF's Second Annual "First Bid"
Live and Silent Auction featuring Auctioneer Extraordinaire - Brad Mattear will be February 28th at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando.
Bigger, Better, and Bradder! (yes, Bradder - it's not a typo!)
In order to ensure that it is truly Bigger, Better and Bradder than last year, I am performing an extreme makeover on the "First Bid" marketing campaign - ramping up the Web 2.0 applications, email newsletter, press releases and stratetic marketing plan - which brings me to my topic of the week.
