Just to let you know if you don’t already The Market Place is now joined under the new umbrella of “CLEAR Connections”, another perspective of the people/relationship-focus of Clear Mind Life Coaching & Counselling. 

Now with CLEAR Network Oldham, which retains the same format as my network meetings have from the beginning of the year, just under a new name and almost one year on!.  However, now I want to bring my own ideas too, for these meetings, and it can hopefully help to continue and develop The Market Place concept i.e. making the personal touch in business more accessible

Making the connections and building the relationships means you are more likely to buy from people you know.  I am always interested in making connections – not just networking although that is a part of it, but actual connections – putting people in touch with someone who can provide what you want, not just refer on as a maybe.  Do you Shop Local with people you know?  And does it work for you?

Part of The Market Place idea can be our home and family needs that we can also meet for each other, not just out to ‘the public’ - in fact we ARE  ‘the public’ to other businesses we meet, as are our friends and family!  Let’s keep it small and local wherever we can!

Hello and welcome to the new members.  I guess we are all still looking for varied ways to market out business - get them out in front of potential customers, and this is the face to face option if you don't have a High St front.  I never give up working on this, and looking for venues and opportunities.    If you have any venues to suggest or contacts that get FOOTFALL through in numbers, interested parties to HOST and attend events, and are willing to work on this together to get the interest and sustain it, then please let me know and I will work with you on these options!

I hope the Home and Garden event last week went well.  Disappointed I couldn't make it but hopefully I can do the next one OR another promoting something else that we do?!

Revitalising this group and the events in 2013!  I forgot it was here!  Like this, I think people forget who is around and this group can be a place to remind ourselves who is in OBN and who we can use when we need something!  Events are going to be fortnightly at the Limo Lounge, Oldham, inviiting local people from local companies on their lunch break to drop in, or whilst in Oldham calling round to keep up to date on services available locally - to try and buy there and then, follow up or compare and contrast!   A marketing opportunity I have created to meet my needs and others like me!  Feel free to join, comment, share and discuss and spread the word to friends and family as well as pop down and see us or showcase yourself!

Furthering The Market Place project today, and got lots of ideas and a firmer structure to start developing the events and promotion on.   Ray is a very proactive member of The Market Place project, and so very enthusiastic and encouraging too, so thank you!   We will keep you up to date with developments and events, one of which is definitely May, and hopefully one more local one in Saddleworth in April.

Great move Julie! This is just the type of group for pro-active self employed and small businesses.  Looking forward to very exciting times ahead!
