What you Missed  - June 10, 2020 - member meeting via zoom

Meeting called to order at 6:10pm by President Janet Lombardi, followed by some short board reports. Janet reports that we’ve not had many expenses, and a few people have re-signed up for membership. Ann Bosso-Johnson was delayed, but Gina said that we have $5845 in the Treasury. 

Gina talked about coming member meetings: In July we’ll have another Zoom meeting, perhaps adding Biz Bites to this session. Feragusto is cancelled for this year. Jeffco wants to limit gatherings to 50 with social distancing, so perhaps we can meet in Aug. Sept. and Oct. are still open and undecided. She announced that we decided to postpone the December party til January…and in Dec. we will organize some kind of charity event. 

We did member introductions, most talking about how they are handling the current situation and how it’s affecting business. Dana Francescatti remarked that everyone is reinventing – which we all agreed.

Janet introduced our speaker, Alfred Gizzo of Arrivo Digital Marketing. He gave a presentation on Google My Business and how we can utilize this forum. To grow business, it’s important to have review since 60 – 72% of people looking for a business are reading these. He urged us …. DON’T ignore it! It’s more important than your Facebook Page. Google maps and Google posts are added. Call him to get information on promoting your business. Post every week…what’s new with your business. People can find all pertinent information without going to a website. You can message from your mobile phone, can book from the site. Contact Alf at :  alf@arrivodigitalmarketing.com

Meeting adjourned at 7:25pm
