I spent all of last week, trying to find inspiration to write a blog post that was informative and hopefully inspiring. I struggled and just couldn’t come up with an idea that moved me and if it didn’t move me, I knew it wouldn’t move you either. But on Saturday, I was inspired. The experience I had on Saturday, reminded me of why I write about marketing. The experience I had on Saturday, inspired me to keep writing, talking, and helping people understand marketing. The experience I had on Saturday is why I call myself – Mad Lady Marketing!
On Saturday, October 5th, Team Green Leaf was invited to attend the Civic Day Convention, hosted by City of Houston Councilwoman – Helena Brown. Although the turn out was minimal, there were people in attendance, as well as other vendors. At the Green Leaf Marketing table, we had our banner with our name Green Leaf Marketing. We had marketing materials on the table for our business and marketing materials for a few of our clients – Lady A, EZ4U Online Tax Service, Simply Speech & Sweets By Belen. We also had a basket filled with green and white candy to share with those who took the time to stop and learn more about Green Leaf Marketing. I anticipated, this event being a “teaching” opportunity for our business, but what I had not anticipated was this event being a “teaching” opportunity about marketing in general. To my surprise, I actually had people come up to my table, look at the marketing materials and then proceed to ask…”So what is Green Leaf Marketing?” or “What do you do?”……really!?! Is it not self explanatory? As our name states, we do MARKETING!
It just dawn on me that this is the reason why Mad Lady Marketing was brought to life. People, hear the word marketing but they do not understand what marketing entails. Marketing is “code word”. It is something people drop from their lips because they think it makes them sound knowledgeable. It is something people toss around with as much care and understanding as they would throw liter from a car window. If you haven’t read my post, entitled “You don’t know marketing!” then you should, tell a friend to read it too.
I realize now, I have a long way to go on this marketing mission. I must help people understand marketing. It is my calling, my mission, my goal.
