Guest Post: All it takes is one, then two…then bam!

An awesome event came across my email inbox. I was incredibly excited and looking forward to the event but there were no events in my area, let alone my state.

Should I move? Seriously. I thought that could possibly work until I thought of all the boxes and packing involved.

Then I came up with an even better idea. Why not create an event for my area? I mean how hard could it actually be? Find a location, invite a few friends, and ask a few friends to help with giveaways.

Should be simple right? Turns out it was.

All it takes is one…

I began to plan the event in my mind and quickly realized that it would be best to have someone to partner with.

All it takes is one, then two…

Finding the right partner with this was crucial and I knew exactly who to ask. She was so excited and was immediately on board!

All it takes is one, then two…then bam!

Just a couple of days later…
Location…check
Flyer…check
Facebook event listed…check
Creating a list of businesses we know personally…check
Blog buttons created…check
Air 1 radio station publicity…check
K-Love radio station publicity…check

Here comes the Bam!
100+ people invited on the Facebook event page (in only a few days)
Moms inviting others to attend and posting it on their Facebook page
Advertising started yesterday and two additional businesses signed up

We have no idea how far this will go
BUT
one thing is for sure…
we are having fun along the way.
Many mom based businesses will receive publicity
and many moms will come and have a great time.

Along the way we are just having a blast planning the event!

Go check out Becoming Homegrown and show some love
for their willingness to co-host the event!

All it takes is one, then two…then bam!

Hi Wendy,
I just caught wind of your excellent event and absolutely love how you described its conception. I can totally relate to that very same thought process and have created an entirely new website for moms in much the same manner, except we are marketing just the moms and not businesses. Anyway, I’m sure it’s too late to get in on sponsoring the event this year but I’m very interested in details for next year. We’ve just recently launched and are building our network in Indianapolis, IN but are already seeing national interest and we’re expanding soon. Since our site is driven by zip code (Canada too) we are technically already national – yahoo! Please check us out. Thanks for organizing a wonderful night out. I love seeing the power of 2 moms starting a movement!!!
