Eco - Event

* If you would like your event listed on this blog - just reach out and send a query our way (contact info via our website).
Seedy Saturdays ... have you ever been to a seed exchange? It can be an experience to remember. As you stroll down the booths, you'll hear interesting conversations with knowledgeable gardeners, farmers who have deep roots in the area -  possibly for generations. Depending on the size of the event, you'll see a huge array of varieties, most of which you've probably never heard of and be introduced to all shapes, sizes and colours of pretty much anything you can think of. 
Attending events like these also introduces local food and beverage producers who are offering snacks and refreshments. You'll learn of groups and organizations (both big and small, unofficial ones) that may peak your interest. Often, non-profits will display information packages where you might learn about citizen science projects in your area, things your kids can get involved in, learn how seniors are helping the non-profits, and much more.

Email Marketing 

1. AWeber

With a drag and drop email builder, unlimited image storage and an easy to use interface, AWeber is a great option to manage your email marketing communication.

2. MailChimp

MailChimp offers 12,000 emails to 2,000 subscribers - free. That's what MailChimp can do for you. A great email marketing resource if you're just getting started. MailChimp is easy to set up, easy to manage and offers an easy to scale pricing plan as your list grows. As the Wix email option 'Shoutout' has a capped number of emails you can send but an exportable email list. You can use MailChimp to send additional emails if you are pushing the boundaries of the free Wix option.

3. Constant Contact

You can't call yourself constant contact and then not be available to your customers. And that's just what makes this email automation company shine. They offer round the clock support 7 days a week. They also offer 60-day FREE trial.

4. SpyFU

Search for any domain and see every place they've shown up on Google: every keyword they've bought on AdWords, every organic rank, and every ad variation in the last 11 years. This combined with Wix's seamless SEO makes key words easy. You don't need to have some ten years long. Find online and traditional leads methods -- social media, email, phone, and address -- you can't find anywhere else. So you can look at other authors within your niche and find out exactly where readers are going to find them.

quote of the day

Quote of the Day 

“Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge.

 It requires no accountability, no understanding.

The highest form of knowledge is empathy –

for it requires us to suspend our egos

and live in another’s world.” 

~ Bill Bullard
