Hi Fellow Garden Center Owner,
Constant Contact – Using it right now. It’s really easy and that email list WILL be valuable to you.( I can give you or your staff a tutorial on it)
James Clear Newsletter– Honest strategies for living healthy. A dynamic newsletter about habit, success and just being honest with yourself. It sounds hokey, but I find myself sharing it regularly.
TED Talks – Talks to stir your curiosity. Think “new products.”
C.L. Fornari – The Garden Lady – She is a writer, speaker and is always current on what is happening in the gardening world.
Garden Writers Association – A valuable association of garden people. A great place to look, if you want to promote a new product or just find writers for any kind of project.
Today’s Garden Center -THE trade magazine with very current, very useful and very insightful articles.
Ball Publishing -They sponsor several newsletters that are right on target. I especially enjoy the one written by Ellen Wells, called Buzz, which is directed to Garden Center owners and Acres Online, by Chris Beytes. They are worth your time, for sure.
Blue Penguin Development |Solo Marketing – Great guy, great advice – He has helped me with many projects and always inserts a bit of humor.
Garden Media Group – 2015 Trends Report
Moore Consulting – A consulting group with products designed specifically for Garden Centers. It’s main focus is to attract new customers. I especially like the New Homeowners Program, but they have moore( pun intended) programs also.
