What a week!

Post 289 of 378

Before we put a wrap on the week, just a quick reminder to all our vendor partners especially, that we have a very comprehensive training tomorrow, Saturday Morning 31st at the Buzz Cafe at 9am. Follow the link to RSVP.

We’ll be covering, in a very hands on manner, how to structure your vendor offer to the network and how to leverage our multiple platforms to maximum effect. This training is open to anyone; Affiliate, Vendor Partner or curious guest. Many may be sitting on the fence, wondering as to the benefits of becoming a vendor and whether it is a fit for their business. To you especially, come on out and see what’s on offer!

We had a great webinar on Monday night with some awesome presentations you can review it here! I love the new platform and we had a ton of great feedback. Please join us on Monday for the next one – click here at 7pm Monday.

Tuesday saw a great meeting at Cheers in North Vancouver. If you know anyone on the North Shore invite them to come on out and see what we’re all about. We meet every Tuesday from 11am with Gerry Spitzner hosting – RSVP through meetup if you’re coming out. $15 buys a great (and huge) lunch!

We postponed our regular Tuesday meetup in Tricities (which takes place at 7pm just off Ioco) in favour of hosting our inaugural Trade Show Tuesday evening at the Buzz.  30 of our Vendors snapped up tables to show off their products and services and more than 200 came out to check us out and enjoy wine, cheese and copious uninterrupted networking opportunities. Small Business BC stopped by, loved what they saw and are joining our team as Vendor Partners to offer their incorporation and registration services and a host of awesome training, market research reports and advice.

Many of our vendors had the chance to be interviewed LIVE over the web in HD with StRut Studios amazing technology that we utilize each Wednesday Lunchtime for our weekly show.

That show will be forthcoming shortly and will be archived for their use from their own websites.

We had a great LIVE Show Wednesday Lunch hour featuring  Janice Porter, Kelty McKerracher & Sunnette Jones chatting to our affiliates about their program to help businesses follow up and stay in touch with their clients, a holistic massage service in Gastown and a comprehensive health and wellness system respectively. If you or anyone you know could use any of these great services you stand to make a commission just for making the connection. So submit the lead to us and we’ll put you in touch.

That was followed by another powerful and packed meeting in Burnaby at the Firefighters Club. Be sure to make it out next and every Wednesday at 7pm!

Thursday as usual started early in Surrey, decamped for Lunch hour downtown and followed up with an evening session at the Landing in Gas town and then back to Yaletown first thing Friday Morning. Pick up any of these meetings next week WITH THE EXCEPTION OF NEXT FRIDAY! It is Good Friday so the Buzz meetup has been CANCELLED, to resume the following week.

See you in the morning for the Vendor Training and, I hope, for the Pinterest training that immediately follows. Remember to tell guests the only cost for the vendor training is $7.50 + tax for breakfast (you can RSVP and pay here) and to bring enough change for the parking meters.

You can get in to the Pinterest training afterwards for half price with a coupon from Living Free Canada. ONLY $15! You seriously can’t afford not to take in this training on the newest and fastest growing social media platform. See how it can help your business…

Enjoy the photos. See you in a few hours.
