The NATC "Business Circuit" News

July 16, 2019
Hello SchaOn!

July is 1/2 way through and it's already time to start planning for September! Yes, it's like 100°F outside, and we have to start thinking about fall.

Personally in my own business, I start seeing things picking back up in September... so I'm very excited for it to get here. In preparation for that, I look at different events I could be doing - like Open Houses, quick classes, workshops, and talks, new client promotions, and shape my advertising towards attracting those people that are starting to re-think about how to benefit their health and well being in the coming months.

Some exciting things coming sometime in August --- we're getting a new website! We have new advertising opportunities for 10 Community Sponsors.

Also, a reminder: November 9th we are holding the Your Shining Life Expo for its 3rd year! This is a great opportunity to get you and your business in front of hundreds of engaged people that are interested in things dealing with Holistic Medicine, Natural Foods, and pretty much everything our community offers. Space is limited, so register your spot as soon as possible. Wondering what the expo is like? Check out the videos from last year's event (we have them all in a playlist so they are easy to find).
In this Edition:
  • NATC Business Professionals Networking Social transforms and now weekly!
  • NATC Community July Newsletter from Candi
  • 2019 Editorial Themes
  • Planning Ahead - September Theme
  • Reader Statistics
  • Submit your Summer Events & Calendar listings
  • Let's get together!
July Edition on shelves

NATC loves sharing and promoting local business information and bringing that to our readers. Do you have information that would be beneficial and would like to share with our readers? Let's talk!
Natural Awakenings is a family of more than 70 healthy living magazines celebrating 25 years of providing the communities we serve with the tools and resources we all need to lead healthier lives on a healthy planet.

Networking Social for Professionals & Non-Professionals alike...

In an attempt to better bring together the community, I've decided through the summer to combine two groups together, the NATC Professionals Networking Social and the TCEHW Chat & Play Social. Initially, this will be weekly through the summer, and if all goes well, it will continue weekly into the fall and winter. The goal for this is connecting with other like-minded people as well as helping to build and strengthen word-of-mouth advertising and social networks.

Tonight's Topic:
"How do you keep your energy levels up?"
Also, tonight we will do a Full Moon Intention Burning as the New Moon is at 4:38 PM with a Partial Lunar Eclipse earlier in the day. Full Moon Intention Burnings are great to help release what no longer serves you.

(Introductions and starter topic will start at about 7:15 to allow for people arriving late, and grabbing drinks, etc.).
Join in and hang out at J & S Bean every Tuesday evening from about 7 PM to 9 PM.

This meetup is focused mostly on conversation, getting to know each other, and some light networking, so both lay-people and professionals are welcome.

This meetup event is about giving a space and time to be able to talk openly with other like-minded individuals about the wide range of things found in holistic & natural medicine community including the various aspects of energy work, the diversity and commonality of different wellness modalities and concepts, current events concerning the community, as well as magick, psychic (ESP) abilities, "otherworldy things"/the paranormal, astrology, etc.

PS --- Feel free to bring crystals, stones, cards, etc... if you feel called to... :)

J & S Bean Factory offers Organic Coffees (which they roast on-site) & Teas as well as snacky type foods! J & S Bean's website:


If you have a location in mind or are interested in being a host, please talk with SchaOn Blodgett, CCP, BTAT in Advertising Sales. Some examples of past events are February's which was co-hosted by Psinergy and the Upper Midwest Hanmi Buddhist Association, and the March event at Diamonds Coffee Shoppe in their large open space.

Cost: Free. Location: 1360 Lexington Pkwy N, St Paul, MN 55103. For more information, contact SchaOn Blodgett at[masked] or email [address removed].

2019 Topics

Each month, Natural Awakenings has a primary theme or topic, as well as a bonus topic of conversation. Here's the calendar of topics for 2019 so you can plan News Briefs, calendar of events, and more!

Planning Ahead

September's Theme: Age-Defying Bodywork PLUS Yoga Therapy

Deadline to get your stuff in: Thursday, 8/15


Upcoming Themes:

  • October: Oral Health PLUS Chiropractic Care
  • November: [Better Sleep Special] Natural Sleep Solutions PLUS Optimal Thyroid Function
  • December: Uplifting Humanity PLUS Earth-Friendly Holidays
Do you need the Advertising Planning Calendar to help plan out News/Health Briefs that are included in your advertising contract? Want to correlate events with the theme of the magazine so your event stands out more? It's a great tool!
Advertiser Tip: Change your ad up every 3-months to help readers notice your ad again. Don't have the tools or time to create your own ad? We have someone that can do it for you.

What do you have going on in September/October/November?

You can easily submit News Briefs right online. Health Briefs, Articles, and Community Spotlights need to be sent to [address removed] - though please review editorial guidelines which are available on the website. Keep in mind, advertisers get first consideration with any editorial content.

Calendar listings can also easily be submitted right online at: Online event listings are currently free.

Note: Magazine drop locations are eligible for up to 2 in-print calendar listings/month (if space is available). Due to space restrictions, not all submissions that are approved for our website will appear in print in our magazine. To guarantee a spot in the print magazine, print calendar listings start at only $20/mo. View the current calendar

Classified Ads: Classifieds are a great way to bring attention to your business. Are you looking to rent space, hire staff, looking for a location to hold a meeting? Classifieds are just another way to keep your name in front of your target market... and if you're a current advertiser, but don't have a calendar listing for the month, you can do a Classified Ad instead!

Classifieds are $1/word/month with a $20 minimum and must be pre-paid.
Concerned about creating a display ad? We have someone that can do that for you!

Let's Get Together

Want to talk about your advertising options with Natural Awakenings? Feel free to drop me an email at [address removed] or give me a call at[masked].

Please keep in mind, we normally don't like to just email over the Marketing Packet as it does have a lot of options, and we want to make sure that you're getting the best options, and that it's clear with everything that is included so you get the most out of your ad package.

We can either talk over the phone, or preferably, let's meet for coffee or tea at a local, small business and go over things in person, while also helping to support one of the many fantastic local businesses we have here in the Twin Cities.

Make it a great day,

Ad Sales
