Join us for the monthly WINGS Brantford Chapter breakfast meeting and connect with fun, powerful, and supportive women to share Business, Mentoring and Life skills in a nurturing atmosphere where honest trusting relationship are cultivated and nurtured which in turn results in business being fostered and happening naturally.

Come early to enjoy a coffee and conversation during the open networking 7:45-8am.  We get started promptly at 8 with introductions and a presentation from one of our members. The meeting ends generally by 9am, with open networking following.

Our guest speaker for the April meeting is Rachel Amanda and she'll be sharing some of her secrets for successful online marketing.

One of the challenges every small business faces is creating  ways to find and engage with their tribe - the people who are hungry for the products and services you have to offer.  The vast world of online marketing, including your website, blog, email list and social media can feel daunting, but is a critical place to not just show up - but show up effectively - to help your business grow.

18 months ago, Rachel embarked on a journey to improve her online marketing strategies. Over the course of 12 months, she launched a vlog (video blog), grew her facebook page to nearly 16,000 people, and quadrupled her email list. To make that happen, she trained with some of the world's leading experts in social media, online marketing, and youtube.  This work has been critical to the success of her business.

And so, when she was thinking about what to talk with you about this month, she knew it had to be about online marketing.  She's going to share with you:

• my story and how online marketing has transformed my business

• the importance of picking channels that work for your personality and your timetable

• what to do with those channels once you're there, for maximum engagement

• how to master it all as a system you can use in 15 minutes or less each day

It's Rachel's intention that you take away some solid steps you can use immediately for strengthening your online marketing efforts.

    I am also wondering if anyone wants to share how they use social media t promote their business, in a non aggressive sales only tactic. We have strict rules around what we can post on sites like Twitter, Facebook instagram etc so I am wondering how others use it to build relationships?

      Hi Roseanne. Funny you should be thinking about that. I'm speaking at the April meeting, and just this morning was thinking about talking about effective non-salesy online marketing, as it's a coaching service I offer but don't often promote. So, hopefully there will be great discussion about it on the 17th. See you then!

      Rachel that is great! I have a closed group on Facebook and where of course I promote any specials and reasons why people should buy I want to engage them more make it a place they want to check in on and keep up to date so I really look forward to seeing what the thoughts if the group are and having a good discussion about this

    I am really looking forward to the next meeting and not rushing out for a call after, I know a few of you were quite excited about 31 products. You can view the exclusive all pro tote an duffle bag at my website, it is only available in April and is not featured in the catalogue, on my website with every $40 spent you can get either for $30. If you order this weekend I can put through as a party and save you $6.0 on the direct ship fee and bring it with me to the meeting on the 17th, just email for details [masked]
