   SPOTLIGHT ON BUSINESS:
The East Mountain Guide, an online magazine about the people who live, work, play or visit the East Mountain area has launched.
Anne Rich has been building and promoting  online businesses since 1999, and started working on the the East Mountain Guide in 2009. 
“I’ve specialized in reaching new customers online for over a decade so I know how to use my skills to help local businesses, organizations, and individuals get their message out.
I grew up working for our family business and understand the need for reaching new customers while still running your business.  Businesses understand they should ‘get online’, but most hang a website, post on facebook or Craig’s List and then call it quits. Online marketing is proven to work for local business when done correctly,
but the time, learning curve and expense makes doing it successfully difficult for many businesses.
The East Mountain Guide is structured as a magazine to showcase our partners, but it is much more than a website, it is a way for local businesses to  stay within their budget, and reach their targeted audience while using my skills and experience!”
The East Mountain Guide is offering Edgewood Chamber members a FREE three month business listing.  Please go to
http://www.eastmountainguide.com/pages/chamber and follow the directions.
If you would like further information or need help, call Anne Rich at 926-1294.

 Work on your marketing in some aspect every day to get new customers.
If your prospective new customers don’t know about you, they won’t buy from you. Work on getting your message out every day.
We have more… stay tuned for next week!
