How to promote music events.

Douglas Detrick is a friend from Lawrence University. He and I both studied trumpet performance. When I caught up with him recently, I was happy to see that he was still playing the trumpet and composing. But he’s also bringing his marketing skills to the table in a big way, raising money and awareness and […]

WAY too much traffic.

Last night we were driving up 285 toward Carlsbad, NM, (still on the Texas side) when we hit a pothole hard. The air exploded out of our tire. My husband steered the van onto the shoulder of the road while a speeding semi bore down on us from behind. We drove as far down into […]

Check out my new LinkedIn profile pic

Last fall, Mary Rose Maguire and I were both listening to Ann Handley’s brilliant talk about content marketing at AWAI’s boot camp. Ann was explaining the folly of littering your LinkedIn profile with the “constellation of nope” … which is her term for the default cover photo in LinkedIn. When you leave the default photo […]

I enjoy getting to know all […]

Do you need someone to plow your parking lot or driveway?

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to make a brochure for a group of men who have a local snow plowing business. Here’s how it turned out. Front: Back: If you’re in Los Alamos, call Valente Yoder at 505-692-8422 or Luis Ontiveros at 505-695-0083. They do residential and commercial snow removal.  

This article brought shoppers into the gallery.

People ask me all the time how to write copy for the art market. Apparently, it’s one of those niches that seem mysteriously difficult to write for. Whenever there is an event at the Karen Wray Fine Art Gallery, Karen has me write a press release about it. When we publish articles that show that […]

That was sooo unprofessional!

I’ve been bellyaching all week because a client canceled a project. He didn’t mark up what I wrote or say anything was wrong with what I gave him. I don’t think it had much to do with the work at all. His biggest problem was ME. I could totally take it personally this time. He […]
