I give up.
So much for horoscope being accurate tonight! IT said something about my stellar organizational skills coming to the rescue in demand, and even mentioned literally my KID would need that help from me!
Well, I did bring kid to the libary, however I did also forget the marketing meeting was set for 6pm so our arrival in town at 6:30 was late. She got out of the house due to sushi as the motivator, but alas...,gave the food BEFORE homework project done... and she has been on phone etc... not doing hw since. SIGH... Its a simple project she could easily do if she wanted. Ce la vie.... will try to help her now !
(So much for stellar organizational skills).
I couldn't yet figure out how to copy and save OR CREATE a logo I need for marketing work.
I have been trying for weeks now
and putting off sending out anything as far as marketing material that is VISUAL since ....
don't know why the hell I didn't think of that sooner...
Did connect last night for a bit.
SO I give up tonight on working on marketing.
I did succeed in a FB Blast that was seen in three days by about 700 folks..so thats it for now.
I had tried to use the app I use for newsletters to create a message our of our web page/
Some might call it a failure as there was code sent out in the email blast which did not translate into image... but just htlm code.
I however left it out there , albeit imperfect as I THINK IT WAS A SUCCESS
And I KNOW most people never read a whole attached emailed message AT ALL.
They read THE BLUB
The see the pretty pic
Get the bulleted message
and if interested CLICK THE LINK
When I got email saying "People are calling to say the message is messed up"
I tell you
DONE but imperfect is the best I can do.
So I never feel badly about my best efforts.
IT is what I could do at this time, and I am proud to have hustled to get it done.
one of my favorite people in the world DID write back to my fb msg "YES I Will get on it!" to my request that he provide support to our arts org!
So in the next day I will make five or six more PERSONAL calls and ask for supporters of folks I KNOW run their own businesses.
And then call it a wrap.
Did the best I can.
And heck, one of my fav and most inpiring artists and business owners and all around fabulous human beings is doing this work and supporting OUR work SO
My marketing efforts ARE A SUCCESS!
Better that one supporter this year and one ad
BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY maintaining support and collaboration of that other org and GOOD WILL
as they are fabulous
that is my next goal. I know this fellow actually suggested it to one of our artists.
I would like to see them work together again.
But that is not my story...
All I can do is try to build bridges of good will and support.
And keep doing my best for the folks who benefit from this inclusive arts org. IT really is a special place for many who otherwise might not have their own nitch to be themselves with such joy.
