I'm really excited about two events that I'm participating in this week and I hope you can meet me there! The first one is on Tuesday, March 23rd where Maryanne Weiss, Greater Phoenix SCORE Chairman, and I are teaching a networking seminar together. We're talking about everything you've ever wanted to know about networking in order to generate business! More info here. On Thursday, come visit our booth at theScottsdale Airpark Tradeshowwhere your business takes flight! Get down to business with the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce at this excitingFREEevent. With more than 70 exhibitors and more than 800 attendees this is a must-attend affair! This event has always been successful for us and I know it will be for you too.
One of the things you’ll hear me talk about at the networking seminar this week is that follow up is crucial to your success. You can network all you want, but nothing will happen if you don’t have the proper follow up techniques. That’s why it’s so important to have the proper Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution that helps you manage all your contacts. Sage, located in Scottsdale, has a product that will fit any company’s needs and budget! You will find all of these products listed atSageCRMSolutsions.com, where you’ll be able to explore the different products (SageCRM, SageCRM.com, ACT!, SalesLogix) compare them side-by-side and read success stories.

Gelie Presents: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn - Oh My!I’m going to make this really simple for you and show you how I built my ENTIRE social media infrastructure and how I manage it daily. We'll talk about how you can do the same and much more. I don't teach this seminar on a regular basis...so mark your calendars now for Thursday, April 1st and I hope to see you there!
