My second year in business and I got busy networking with local businesses at local networking groups.
One of the first groups I joined was the Jersey Shore Public Relations and Advertising Association (JASPRA). The meetings were fun and information but I didn’t get any new clients, I got something better – two separate information parterning opportunities:
- I met Leigh Stoecker, a graphic designer in Red Bank, New Jersey (Leigh Stoecker Graphic Designs). We hit it off so well that after a while we decided to share office space in a new Red Bank office. Leigh designed my logo and my non-WSI website which served it’s purpose and provided may SEO opportunities throughout the years.
* As of 2016, Leigh is partners with Fringe Marketing LLC, the new designers of my logo
- The second important event while working on a JASPRA event, I met Jim Mahlamnn of Netcetra. This was the beginning of a long and profitable business relationship.
