I <3 Marketing - Part 2
You came out to YoungBlood last month to brainstorm marketing ideas in small groups. You got some great ideas ... now how are you going to make them happen?
The first step in making sure you don't weasel out of your promises to yourself is to present them to a sympathetic audience that will give you immediate feedback.
So we're going to put together a Slideshow Extravaganza.
You present your ideas. You see everyone else's ideas. And at the end of the event, you go home with a comment card from every audience member - real time feedback you can't get anywhere else.
[Did you miss February's I <3 Marketing event at YoungBlood Gallery? Review the ideas, posted to Twitter in real-time over at our "twub" - http://twubs.com/lrbn. Elizabeth posted a list from the Wall O’ Ideas: http://ladyroguebiz.ning.com/profiles/blogs/i-heart-marketing-wall-of

If this is your first time at an LRBN event - bravo! Come as you are, even if it's a little late - bring business cards if you have’ em, and be prepared to meet some great folks who can help you create grassroots success for your business.
3 STEPS TO PLAY.
1. create three slides- here's how!
Google docs (docs.google.com ) offers free slideshow software if you do not have access to Powerpoint.
Check out a sample here, using the arrow buttons to see all three slides: http://docs.google.com/present/edit?id=0AbF-AKK76IGQZGcyd2czbW1fNjloZ3RtczZjMw&hl=en
Slide 1 – Who Are You? Include:
your business name
full contact info (website, phone, email, social media presence)
Slide 2 – What's Your Marketing Plan Now?
Slide 3 - Your Next Big Idea Is ...
2. save as .ppt
Powerpoint: Save your presentation as a "Powerpoint presentation" - a .ppt, not a .pptx or a .pdf
For Google Docs: Under the 'File' menu, select 'Download as' and choose 'Powerpoint.' This will likely save your .ppt to your desktop.
Mac Users: Please note that some fonts are not supported by all computers. When using images from the web, be sure to save a copy to your hard drive, and then insert it in the presentation.
3. email your slideshow to ladyrogueBIZ@gmail.com
We will choose the first 15 slideshows for inclusion. We reserve the right to decline presentations that are inappropriate.
Want to Watch & Learn?
Voyeurs, your feedback is critical. If you don’t want to present (or don’t get your slides in on time), we still need you there to support your Loconomy peeps. Come watch as they show off their business idea and their plan to market it. Learn from what others are doing. 15 entrepreneurs x 3 minutes each = 45 minutes of sweet business magic! The audience will get the chance to give each brave biz owner a little feedback and love through comment cards. That’s why We <3 Marketing.
