One of the things I run into after a large show is a healthy dose of bloggers block. So many pre-show blog posts have left me with nothing much to say. I will say that this February's Tailgate and Music Valley were judged to be a success by most criteria that we have available. By no mean does this mean every dealer and customer were thrilled, but most seemed happy, enthused and encouraged. The scheduling with Heart of Country was one factor that led to increased gates, but we also made significant progress with attracting local customers (our biggest challenge) through the use of Groupon, Style Blueprint, Facebook, Yelp and this blog along significant local grass roots marketing. The nice thing about this is we are just scratching the surface of these methods, which bodes well for October and future shows. Back to resting and talk to you soon.
