My first Press Release!

It has been exciting year speaking and sharing as an Authorized Local Expert  for Constant  Contact, have had the great experience of speaking to various networking groups, corporate clients and different types of expos throughout the GTA. 

This past Friday May 25th I had an interesting online event occur. I did my first  press release email marketing campaign.  promoting my partnership being Authorized Local Expert with Constant Contact Toronto since January 2012. 

I was supplied a very straightforward press release and made some minor changes where it was  advised. The next decision was when to send it? I had already sent a campaign on Tuesday afternoon for the week and didn’t want to send the second campaign in the same week.  

At  11:00am on Friday May 25th made the intention and hit the “send button “ and of it went into the internet funnel.

 When I came back from running a errand I was surprised to see an email from local community college, (my alumni) interested in meeting to discuss sharing the social media presentation with the entrepreneurship program. I quickly responded and book a meeting on May 31 to learn more details about the program. 

It was exciting to see the power and reach of my 1st newsletter had already brought me a great lead!
I also received an email of  congratulations from Jean Guy Franceour  Author of Messy Manager and great suggestion from  Marta Nowinsak Founder of to include a personal quote in the campaign. Below is thee Press Release
