After a long long hiatus to deal with a family health crisis (everyone is fine now) I'm starting to work on bringing this blog out of hiatus.

It has been over a year since my last post and I've been reading marketing books and analyzing real marketing efforts around me and I can see all kinds of material to write about. Finally, I'm starting to have some time to put these thoughts to words, form them into sentences, and organize them into paragraphs.

I really miss blogging.
The interaction with everyone, following links and learning was a big part of my life and I'm looking forward to getting back in gear and doing what I love once again.

Looking at my most popular posts, I can see a lot of you have been interested in guerrilla marketing techniques, and other low-cost, high-impact marketing ideas. This is an area I'll focus on as I write.

Is there anything else that would be of interest to you?

What would you like to know? What would you like to accomplish?

Are you puzzled how to go about connecting with your customers or increasing your sales? Tell me about your situation and I'll help you figure out your next best step.

What are you hoping to learn from this blog?

Thank you for reading my blog, thank you for your patience while I managed my family stuff, and thank you for keeping me excited about blogging.

The 3/50 Project

Have you heard about the 3/50 project? I stumbled across this recently on a trip up to Issaquah, WA. We had driven up there for the day, about 200 miles one way, for the sole purpose of eating Veraci Pizza at the Redmond Farmers' Market and to see what Issaquah's Gilman Village is all about. (I need to go back. Gilman Village is a fantastic little shopping center!)

The 3/50 Project's concept is simple. Think of 3 locally owned shops you would miss if they closed, and support them. The 3/50 suggests spending $50 each month between 3 shops. That's all.

In my opinion, if $50 is too much for your budget, try for $20, or even $10. Just support local business. Period.

Small businesses can register for free on the 3/50 website and download materials to promote the concept.

For more information, check out their website and facebook pages at

For iPhone users, a free 3/50 app helps you find locally owned businesses no matter where you are. To download the app and/or get your business listed, visit LookLocal.
