I had the opportunity to attend the Schmooza Palooza this year. It was a networking event held by the Chamber of Commerce Huntsville and Madison County where...
businesses of all kinds set up tables. I went there to get a feel for how businesses in my area felt about their social media, if they hire anyone to do their social media, and what social media platforms they use.
A surprising number used twitter. Most of the larger businesses had someone at a corporate or local level doing their social media. However, a quite a few of the exclusively local businesses seemed to be flying blind.
I really enjoyed just getting to know other businesses and finding out about services that I didn’t know about before.
For example, Fly Quest has a motion simulator which is used for Advanced Aviation Training,
The Healing Arts Center uses various methods of therapy like photography and essential oils,
University Pickers has all kinds of things for rustic house decor,
306 BBQ has oh-my-goodness-the-juiciest-sweetest-ribs-I’ve-ever-had,
and Luciano has delicious Italian food.
I'm really glad that I decided to go, I definitely enjoyed myself, met so many wonderful people, and I won a $20 gift card to The Pants Store.
