October Bits & Pieces


SUCCESS STORY


 
Dawn Schol wanted an organic lotion that would relieve her severely dry skin - a 

problem exacerbated by the frequent hand-washing she had to do as a teacher. But in 

the search for a lotion that could heal her hands but didn't include dangerous 

chemicals,  Schol came up empty-handed. When she went to natural-food stores, she 

found that even the organic lotions had ingredients she couldn't pronounce.  


 

How to Use Social Selling for Your Small Business


 

"Your network is your net worth."

Ever heard that saying? It goes all the way back to the days of paper Rolodexes, but it 

is just as important now.




The Delicate Art of Raising Prices




E-commerce giant Amazon made news recently by announcing plans to raise 

the price of its annual  Prime membership from $99 to $119. Considering the 

benefits of the Prime membership, it doesn't seem like much to complain about 

(especially since the difference adds up to less than $2 per month).

But that didn't stop people from complaining about the price increase online and 

elsewhere.

Trademarks for Creatives 

October 25, 2018 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM  - Milford Center for the Arts 
 
One of the trickiest parts of starting any business is choosing the right name. You need to be sure your name can be trademarked and that you can build a killer Internet and social media presence around it. It gets even trickier with multiple brands, or when the name that appears on your products and services is different from your company name.
