Our Next RSFBPW Meeting
President's Message:

Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests, 

February is the month of Love!  I t's easy to say We LOVE! our customers. But do they know it? Feel it?

Think of Valentine's Day not just as a romantic occasion or an opportunity for special sales, but a time to celebrate and strengthen business relationships, too. This often-overlooked opportunity can create happier, more loyal clients. By showing your appreciation with a Valentine's Day card, you'll outshine your competitors and be thought of as the company that cares. Plus, it's the perfect chance to give your name visibility when others might not be trying, and unlike other mail, a card always gets opened.
Why not send your customers a personalized Valentine's Day card letting them know how much they are appreciated.  Something like "I wanted to send this Valentine's Day card to make sure you know how much I value you as a customer" or "It's really great to do business with someone as nice as you, and today seemed like the perfect day to let you know"
Another great way to celebrate February is to write a "Love Letter" to your business.  I recently read an article that women had a much higher appreciation for their businesses when they took the time to be specific about the things they loved most.  Secret word is Gratitude.  How about Flexibility, Income, recognition, self-employment benefits, perhaps a company car, opportunity for unlimited advancement and perhaps just being your own boss!  The possibilities for gratitude are endless.  Remember, what you focus on, you get more of......good and bad. 
Here's to a month of LOVE,  laughter, joy and abundant blessings!    

Julie Hetherington
RSFBPW President

Our Featured Speaker -, author of A to Z Healing Toolbox
This month's speaker is  Jenny Harkleroad,  FOUNDER & PSYCH-K® FACILITATOR
Jenny's world looked perfect, sweet husband, 4 wonderful children, thriving businesses, until she decided to jump! That jump broke her back and turned her world upside down. Wheelchairs, walkers, back braces, paralysis, surgery, years of chronic pain and more.  Jenny will share how she turned it all around and so can you! It's easier than you could ever imagine to go from where you are to where you want to be!

Your contact and business information is placed in our directory, as well as on our website in the membership section. Please remember to update your information whenever it changes, including new photos and logos. You are invited to participate in the monthly drawing for members only by bringing and talking about your donation during the drawing portion of our meeting. You can place your items for sale on 1/2 of a table located in the back of the room before, and after our monthly meetings, from January through October. You should arrive around 10:30 a.m. to secure your spot. You can share a 20 second commercial during our meetings. You can apply to speak at our member's showcase, some restrictions apply. You can post announcements for your products, services or events on our Facebook Business Page and participate in our LinkedIn Group page.

Monthly speakers are the only ones allowed to place their information on the luncheon tables during our meetings.  Due to the size of our membership, we are unable to send out group emails to all members regarding a special event or announcement you may want to share with members. Be sure to post your announcement on our Facebook Business Page.  Thank you.

Shout-Outs and Testimonials

We may  run out of time at our meetings to share our testimonials for each other's services, products, and community announcements. We encourage you to write your praise and mail an email or note to the member who you want to applaud. Send your friends a special email sharing your testimonial about the member you are highlighting. Post your Shout-Out on our RSFBPW Facebook page and on your own FB page.
We offer Shout-outs and testimonial time at the end of many of our meetings, however it depends on the time left after our speaker has concluded their presentation. We do not offer testimonial time at our November and December meetings because of the length of the program. We encourage you to pass out your information, flyers, handouts and community announcements during the open networking time which is between 11:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. 

You may also want to use your 20 second commercial time during the meeting to share your business event or announcement with the group and invite interested members to pick up a flyer with more details in the back of the room. Thanks for cheefully working with us!

A Gentle Reminder about Spamming RSFBPW members

Members and visitors must individually ask each member for permission to place them on any form of mass communication-email blasts, newsletter lists, U.S. Mail lists or group texts.  Without each member's individual permission, we consider this type of communication to be an act of spamming. To build long-term relationships with members please write personal notes and emails first and after developing rapport, ask these members only for permission to place them on your mailing list. Thank you for your cooperation.

Have a clear and concise message. Screen real estate is valuable on mobile, so keep the content here simple and focus on the essentials. Think about the goal of your email. Do you want people to shop online, come into the store, share a sale with friends via Facebook - or maybe you just want them to read an article on your website? Whatever your goal, it's important to make sure you have one before hitting send. Optional Link
