Holiday Gift Guide

The Vine Events’ entrepreneur Facebook support group Digital Marketing On A Budget hosted a Holiday Campaign Challenge in September. At the beginning of each week group members were given a task to complete by the end of the week. At the end of the month group members who put in the work had their holiday campaign ready to launch!

The Vine Event created a #BuyBlack Holiday Gift Guide during the campaign challenge. Our gift guide is a collection of female owned brands and a few of the featured brands are a part of our Facebook group!

Dear Curl Friend

Twitter Pic - PexelsOur visionary, Tonya Cross, is now a regular contributor to Dear Curl Friend. Dear Curl Friend is a digital platform for women to connect about their natural hair and receive beauty tips. See excerpt from her article below titled 4 Tips to Establish and Maintain Influence In Your Niche…

When I finally reached 1K followers on Twitter, I was very excited. Then I started looking at the numbers of some other natural hair influencers. Their large following made my 1K look like a small accomplishment. That same week someone in an online blogger group I’m a member of posted about micro-influencers. The post reminded me that no matter what size my audience is, I’m still an influencer. When someone takes the time to like or follow your social media platforms, it’s for a reason. The hope is that they believe you will and can provide content of value. By providing value, it builds trust and you gain influence. – dearcurlfriend.com

New Promo Video On Deck!

img_1516The Vine Events entrepreneur support group Digital Marketing On A Budget (DMOB) has completed our first marketing challenge! During June, I challenged our group members to create a promotional video for their brand/business by the end of the month. At the beginning of each week, members were given a task to complete by the end of the week. Daily post relating to the week’s task was shared to assist members in getting the ball rolling. Below is a snippet of our weekly tasks.

Week 1: Challenge participants had to decide what they wanted to promote; whether it was a product, event, contest, or service. Everyone was encouraged to keep their script simple and concise.

Week 2: Challengers had to choose a video platform. Daily post about smartphone apps, laptop software, and live streaming assisted with their decision.

Week 3: Things got real; participating members task was to create their promo video. They were encouraged to let their personality shine through!

Week 4: Participants had a chance to tie up loose ends! Through out the challenge, group members were encouraged to work at their own pace and to keep things simple.

I truly enjoyed sharing this creative experience with DMOB group members. I chose to make a promo video for Accented Glory’s NEW Styling Guide! As I stated in previous posts, myself and other group members are not too tech savvy, so user friendly platforms are a must.  With that being said, I chose PowToon as my platform; it was easy to use and easy on my budget. Check out my promo video below!

Digital Marketing On A Budget

DMOB Facebook Group

I created Digital Marketing On A Budget Facebook group last year in May. I designed the group for my friends who are also fellow entrepreneurs to share resources I’ve stumbled upon during my brand building journey!

The group initially started out as a private group, but I recently opened it up so others can join! I’m a giver by nature and want everyone to succeed in their endeavors. I’m still using the space to share what I have learned and continue to learn as the visionary of an organization and brand.

Many of the group members and myself are forty plus in age and face some challenges when it comes to technology! Fortunately, there are user friendly marketing resources that assist us as we travel the digital journey together. More importantly, most of the resources are either free or low cost and don’t put a big dent in our budgets!

I’m currently trying to build the group. My plan is to start hosting group challenges to engage our group members. I’m looking forward to learning and growing our brands together!
