October is a busy month, and it will only get busier as the Christmas Holidays get near. This week’s issue of the newsletter is full of great events happening over the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately I can’t highlight them all, so if there is something I missed, drop me a line and I might be able to get it in next week.

But there are ways to making your page more interactive and viewed by a larger number of people. I’ve outlined three big tips and step by step instructions on how to create an Interest List on my blog. Read is and learn how to (re)connect with the pages you love.

Closing Thoughts

The second RelyLocal Wausau Deal-a-Rama postcard went out earlier this week to another 5,000 homes in the Wausau area. Businesses on the cards are seeing great returns on their ads. If you missed getting on that card, space is available on our next card which will be mailed on November 12. Our co-op postcard package is a great way to affordably use direct mail to get your message out.
