Networking meetup in Bellingham: March 6

Mix, mingle and meet some cool and interesting business pros in Bellingham!

Meetups provide an opportunity to practice positive networking and to work on building fresh and new relationships with people doing business in our community. Networking meetups are also a great way to connect in real life with people you may have only chatted with online via Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn or Facebook.

“I’ve met some of the most amazing people on Twitter of all places. When we were able to meet in real life at a networking event like this, that took our peer relationship and friendship to a new level.” ~ Patti Rowlson, PR Consulting marketing director

Coming in March: Free leadership training

This March, a number of free trainings for small-business leaders will be held in Bellingham. We at PRC have attended a series with these presenters that was helpful and relatable.

#featurebiz: Working a trade show? Get LaserPoint on your side.

Whatcom County is a happening place — especially if you’re a business looking to market yourself.

Every year, more than two dozen public event marketing opportunities take place throughout the county. From the Bridal Inspirations Expo in January to the Port of Bellingham’s Holiday Port Festival in December, this area is replete with opportunities for businesses to meet customers and promote their work.

One local business in particular really struts its stuff when it comes to event marketing. With its ability to help businesses put their best feet forward at these events, LaserPoint Awards & Promotional Solutions often is an important part of how local companies reach out to customers.

Want more money, exposure or customer retention? Pay attention to these three areas:

1. Branding: Has your visual brand gotten off track because multiple vendors are working on public-facing marketing materials such as your website, graphic design and brochures?

Pick one logo, one set of colors and one visual scheme, and make sure that they dominate every single one of your public-facing elements. If you haven’t done a review of your collateral recently, this is a great time to gather every brochure, business card, Internet meme, etc. and make sure that they all convey the same look and feel.
