Leadville In Bloom

Ready, Set, Bid! Get your planter box for next year NOW! Have you placed your bid yet? You may already know, this year’s Leadville MainStreet fall event has a different spin! Our Leadville in Bloom online auction is LIVE NOW! Your bid will deepen our roots and grow the planter box program for Summer of 2022. Browse planter box options and choose your favorite location… Just remember it is an auction! You may have to outbid someone to get it! Ultimately, though, the goal is to fill all of Harrison with colorful blooms for the summer! Of course, it wouldn't be a MainStreet auction without upcycled auction items and street signs! Old planter boxes that once housed the flowers on Harrison have repurposed and transformed by local creatives are up for bid! Check back often, as these items will be added as they come in. You will also find a selection of vintage Leadville street signs in the auction. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of downtown history -- once those are gone, they are gone. Bidding is only open through November 15! Check out the flyer HERE!

Leadville in Bloom is officially live October 15 - November 15, 2021

A branding strategy is essentially a roadmap for how you’ll develop and communicate your brand identity to customers. It involves defining who your target audience is, what type of branding content they might want or need from you and where they can find it (including social media channels). It’s about coming up with relevant brand values that are special to you, defining what makes you different from other businesses in your industry, understanding how people perceive you online (both social media influencers and bloggers) and building an emotional connection with customers. So here are four simple steps that can help ensure your branding efforts are successful instead of a waste of time and resources. ...more HERE
