                Make your website personal and add some historical information

                Add an email to your site for prospective clients/customers to connect with you

                How many individuals are currently using LinkedIn?

                Should we add some networking capability to our website?

                We should spend time introducing ourselves to the community and tour local small businesses

                We could introduce a video of the local business if they can’t accommodate a bigger location

                We should focus on a few endeavors rather than spreading ourselves thin across multiple events

                Use a catch line “we connect businesses/people” maybe a hashtag
