Tech Pros, Social Media Shoot Out

Today I participated on a panel discussion about social media and how to utilize it to help promote your business. This event was put on by the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce, Technology Professionals, also known as the TACC-Tech Pros. Tech Pros is a free benefit of being a member of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce and they meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month, except for November and December as there are a couple of big holidays that fall around those dates (Thanksgiving and Christmas).

The stated purpose of TACC-Tech Pros is to help bring together technology related companies and individuals. I agreed to be on the panel as I was hoping to reach more small businesses that are coming to the realization that the Yellow Pages and ads in throw away newspapers is not going to cut it anymore. Social media is a very important part of any businesses Internet presence and it should be a part of your SEO strategy. I was quite pleased at the standing room only turn out, and it was obvious that the attendees understand that they need a social media plan, even if they are not quite sure where to start. Hopefully, they learned a little today.

Networking at Noon at Ortega 120

Today we went to Ortega 120 in Redondo Beach for another Networking at Noon. I am sure it was pure coincidence that the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) scheduled two Networking at Noon events this month with the second one falling on National Tequila Day, and Ortega 120 boasting over 120 different kinds of tequila. I know I was not complaining. I have been to Ortega 120 a couple times, both being on Cinco de Mayo, so it was always really crowded. Going there for lunch gave me the opportunity to look around and check out the decor; it is pretty cool. The food is good too. Naturally, if you enjoy tequila, you have to go there at least once. Come for the tequila, stay for the food. They make tortillas right there on site. They are so good.

One of the owners, Demi Stevens, gave us a little history of Ortega 120 and after hearing it, you have to admire her business savvy. As usual, everyone got an opportunity to give their 30 second sales pitch, which I again devoted to BUSINSSnBEER. We also gave away two certificates for a free beer at one of the upcoming events. I was happy to see the interest BUSINSSnBEER seems to be getting. Will see how many show up Thursday at Monkish Brewing. Continue reading

Networking at Noon: Lisa’s Bon Appetit

Today was the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce’s (TACC) July Networking at Noon; this time held at Lisa’s Bon Appetit located at 3511 Pacific Coast Hwy in Torrance, CA. Lisa’s Bon Appetit is a catering service that also has a cafe for dining in, as well as a banquet room (which we used) and a bakery. They have been in Torrance for 33 years, so obviously they are doing something right. I can tell you that their french dip was nice and I really liked the bread on Tanya’s sandwich. Everything is made there from scratch, so as you can imagine the desserts were pretty amazing.

I used my 30 second introduction to invite everyone to Business N Beer and we gave away two certificates for a free beer at any one of our Business N Beer meet ups. Hopefully a few will show up Thursday at our first event being held at Select Beer Store. We may have found a new source for printing, so networking is bringing new business. Continue reading
