Marketing Rountable

  • 520 E Street Eureka, CA, 95501 United States

Join Bill Prescott for a one-hour marketing roundtable.  This will be a monthly engagement, where we will focus on both you, your business, and how we can work together. The first ½ hour will give members a chance to mention their most recent marketing success or learning experience, then the second ½ hour will focus on a particular element or platform for marketing, this month we will talk about Instagram.

 

The goal of these monthly meetings is to build a community of marketers who can support, learn and grow with each other. By sharing what is currently working with our marketing efforts, we can all improve our skill set, stay ahead of technology and trends, and achieve greater results for our businesses.

 

This group will be a testing ground where you can get feedback on ideas, share victories, and learn from missed opportunities. This group will also form a community to help share your message with likeminded people and businesses. As an example, when you have a marketing success, one of the most important things you can do is share it on social media. With this group, we will be able to share our content, interviews and awards across the web.

 

As a member of the Promotion Committee for the California Cut Flower Commission, Bill has seen this model work very effectively for large and small businesses. Bill Prescott is the Marketing Communications Specialist for the Sun Valley Floral Farms and also, runs Stargazer Barn, which is Sun Valley’s direct to consumer website, as well as, his own social media consulting firm, Prescott Designs.

Humboldt Made At The Oyster Fest

Brought to you by Arcata Main Street! 

Arcata Main Street welcomes you to the 26th anniversary of The Arcata Bay Oyster Festival on the historic Arcata Plaza!
The Arcata Main Street’s Oyster Festival is now the largest one-day event in Humboldt County. Every year, more than 13,000 ecstatic festival goers and community gather on the Arcata Plaza to celebrate and showcase our local aquaculture and savor the delicacies that have earned us the reputation as the Oyster Capital of California.
Food lovers will be lured by the salty siren song of oysters, and other fare, while quenching their thirsts with local craft beer, hard apple cider, and locally-made wines, many from locally grown grapes. Taps open at 11am and close at 4:30, so plan ahead! Local chefs will compete for the Best Raw, Cooked Oyster and Non-Oyster awards, while dancers frolic on the grass to live, local music.
Kids will want to visit the new FLUPSY (Oyster Nursery) for games and activities, t-shirt coloring, wax hands, balloon creations, giant puppets, concessions, and free ice cream.  It’s located on 9th Street between H & I St.
We also have an expanded Merch Booth on G St. this year, and a bigger than ever Art Market, on H St between 9th & 10th. Both the Art Market and FLUPSY are near our new entrance at the corner of 9th & H St.
Don’t miss the quirky, ritual Oyster Calling Contest at noon with Dave Silverbrand , then at 2 p.m. contenders will be slamming down bivalves in KWPT The Point's Shuck-and-Swallow Contest. And you don’t want to miss the chance to “dunk a librarian” for a good cause!
Oyster Festival is about celebrating North Coast culture where our merchants, restaurateurs, volunteers and guests embrace locally grown and prepared foods, drinks and art. When you leave the Arcata Plaza, you’ll take a renewed appreciation for our home, our marshes and our bay with you. You can also take away some cool gifts from our Oyster Fest Gift Shop!
