February 1, 2010 - promoteVT
(802) 324-1201

promoteVT is excited to be kicking off the second month of this exciting marketing campaign. I have met so many great people and learned more about VT businesses! It's been more amazing then I could have ever dreamed of. I LOVE all of the positive feedback that we have received from businesses who have had new clients/customers who heard about them through promoteVT! Also, people in the community thanking me for promote Vermont!

It is MY pleasure to be doing this. It is so much fun and very rewarding with every "Thank You"!

A couple of things have changed since we launched on January 1. The first big change was our website! The second change was our pricing system. We have changed things over to a flat rate which is $50/day - still NO minimum amount of days needed. However, we do have a few businesses who are doing one day each month for a few months or even the rest of the year. It's totally up to you - if you only want to book one day, that's totally fine!

I look very much forward to the end of the year. I am putting my heart and soul into this marketing campaign. I am excited for the rest of this journey and can't want to share it with all of you! Thank you for the support!

Please be sure to continue to pass the word along about promoteVT! The more people who know, the more exposure businesses will get, the more people will BUY LOCAL - STAY LOCAL! Let's be sure to get the 2010 calendar booked up so we can continue to keep Vermonters informed about the great companies right here in VT!

Thanks again,
Mauranda Dalziel
