Wearing Helmets is Sexy and Fashionable

 Hold Your Horses Head

Lately I have been hearing horrific stories about folks (not wearing Helmets) falling off horses and having horrible accidents/injuries.

There are several articles, photos, and things to do on the Rider4Helmets Site.

But I’m not here to preach or to tell you what do in your life.(Only when it comes to food!) I’m here to tell you that helmets are sexy and very fashionable. Have you seen some of the latest ones?

Here is a sample of one (with Free Shipping) that I found on Riders4Helmets site plus accessories, protective gear for Horses & dogs:

*I have received a shirt in the past by Riders4Helmets and tote bag by Horse Shoes by Design.

Color Impressions and your business

In an effort to offer my best knowledge of marketing to my audience and clients, I have completed a Certified Color Specialist course. Color is important in what you offer your customers in the way you project your brand, logo, and brand. What is the impression that you’re really offering your clients? Upbeat or casual? Mainstream or all-Natural. Are you current with the latest trends in the industry?

Special thanks to Cowgirl Magazine and Wrangler


I just subscribed to Cowgirl Magazine, they were offering a contest for Booty Up jeans from Wrangler as an incentive for new subscribers (only a lucky few were going to win these jeans), I thought it was a 2 x 1 deal ( I crossed my fingers) and I won a pair! I really need some booty help. They were very comfy and fit nicely.

Thanks again! I love the magazine for its cowgirl fashions, home decor, and beautifully written articles about horse breeds along with spectacular photography.My hubby even bought me my bday present off of this magazine (Native American jewelry). I’m really obsessed about this mag, I even got featured as a testimonial. Check it out below!

Lessons Learned in Agri Marketing

I just came back from TN from the Agchat Foundation Conference called Agvocacy 2.0. It was a Social Media (SM) Training conference catered to Agricultural folks/farmers/ranchers, lessons include Blogging, Advanced Twitter/Facebook Tips, and Creating Impactful Images through Vblogging. Also, most importantly promoting Agvocacy! I really enjoyed meeting such amazing people who are making a difference in Agriculture and how food is brought to my plate.

Here I am brainstorming some ideas for my Blog with the tips learned at ACFC11:

Why do I always end up with my eyes closed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to say that I learned the most from John Blue (& Mace Thornton) from Truffle Media such as how to create better videos for your blog with great insightful tips that are perfect for people like myself who have a great attention to detail. Also, John had great suggestions on advanced twitter tools to keep me following more active users.

I really enjoyed both beginner and advanced blogging suggestions from Janice Person, Katie Pinke, and Ryan Goodman. Overall they mentioned that it is all about telling a story to your fans about your lifestyle: the good and the hectic moments. They also touched upon google analytics and the pro/cons of WordPress and Blogger.

I also learned great apps for my iPad/MacBook Pro from Chuck Zimmerman and we talked about how: It’s Great to Be a Florida Gator!

I wish I had more time to speak with Mindy Jo Montgomery who wanted to chat but was heading out of the conference.

Here is the group picture (with my eyes open!)

Listen to the Godfather: Watch Your Competitors

 

Whether you’re in the Pet or Horse industry, you can’t help to notice that when you walk into a feed store or pet store/speciality shop, there are hundreds of products out there ranging from shampoos, dental items, creams for nicer coats, tack, etc that promise that THEIR product is better than others. Don’t even get me started on those products that are organic and holistic. Not to mention those products that have box-ads, a DVD playing their pitch in-front of the cash register, or even those advanced in marketing that say “Scan this QR code for more info on how this product can make “Fluffy” do…”. How can you separate yourself from your competitors? In this highly competitive industry, I suggest you read this article below that covers all the basics.

I found this article from a tweet from Social Media Guru, Susie Blackmon, who originally got it from Heidi Cohen’s website. (The article explains why I used Andy Garcia’s picture) Click below for the full article:

TROTT (Training Racehorses Off The Track) Video

I got this video from my friend who does charity for TROT (based out of Tampa Bay, FL) and it was posted on the Today Show. Great video talking about OTTB and their struggle to find homes post-racing careers.
