LeTip Chester County East met on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Exton, PA. Welcome to new member Kelly Smyth from FastPro Restoration Services (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). We were also joined by guests representing the categories of energy efficiency, accounting, and graphic design.

Our showboater was Greg Cazillo, our website designer. Greg demonstrated several features of a website that he designed for a hot air balloon company. The site responds to different sizes of computer or mobile device and will always fit on the screen. Certain items (e.g., the menu) may also change format to work better on mobile devices.

Our speaker was Jen Canfield-Clark, our travel agent (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Jen spoke to us about what is offered at Sandals resorts. Sandals will always offer a variety of room categories and price ranges. Every Sandals resort has all-you-can-eat sushi, which can be a meal or simply an appetizer before dinner. Some rooms have a butler and a pool. SCUBA is included for guests who are certified divers, although guests can also pay to receive their certification during their vacation. There are also opportunities for sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding. Sandals offers daily and nightly entertainment, premium liquor, and pool bars. Excursions are available but will incur an additional charge. A vacation at Sandals will also include a wedding or vow renewal, if desired, and the resort will offer extra perks depending upon the number of guests. Jen has traveled to many Sandals resorts and can answer any questions and help to make plans for an excellent vacation.

LeTip Chester County East met on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Exton, PA. We were joined by guests representing home restoration and accounting. Our showboater was massage therapist Sue Scales from Hands Down Massage & Bodywork (www.handsdown.abmp.com). Sue always has gift certificates available. Gift certificate purchases can be made with her in person or through following any of the gift certificate links on her website.

Our speaker was Zac Mento, our flooring contractor from Superior Custom Flooring (www.superiorcustomflooring.net). Zac got into the flooring business by following in his father's footsteps. He started out by doing sand and finish projects for his father's company and eventually moved into starting his own flooring business. A popular floor covering currently is the look of handscraped hardwood. Zac is able to offer great pricing on the category of products. He also likes the technological improvements that have occurred with vinyl tiles. They are waterproof, durable, and mold-resistant, and they have a locking system to help the individual tiles stay together. Zac's main goal is to help his customers find good products that are withing their budget and will demonstrate longevity. Customers are most satisfied when their flooring will last and still look good over time. Zac is happy to share his flooring knowledge to help customers make excellent choices.

LeTip Chester County East met on Tuesday, December 1, 2015 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Exton, PA. We were joined by guests representing home restoration (after fire, flood, etc.), house cleaning, and accounting. Our showboater was our travel agent, Jen Canfield-Clark (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). She displayed beautiful pictures and brochures from places that she has traveled to and recommends to her clients.

Our speaker was our marketing representative, Kat Homnack from Solomon Caw (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Kat told us about her company and their specialization in Community Investment Marketing (CIM). A business that gives back to the community will engage with customers more personally and build trust. Studies have shown that 90% of consumers may change their purchasing habits based on CIM. It is helpful for businesses to engage in inbound marketing, with quality content that draws people in. People are attracted, then converted; the sale is closed, and the people are delighted. In this way, strangers can turn into customers and then into promoters of your business. Kat told us how important it is for marketing to have a visual component, since 90% of the information transmitted to the brain is visual. Solomon Caw wants to help business owners to engage in strategic and effective marketing, because most business owners don't have enough time and resources to do this themselves. They offer collaboration, knowledge, community giving, customer service, and creativity. Contact Kat to find out more about what Solomon Caw can offer to a business you know or own.

LeTip Chester County East met on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Exton, PA. We were joined by a guest representing holistic health and design.

Our speaker was Jenny Hadler, representing marketing specialties with Adelfi Promotions (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Jenny recommends advertising via promotional products, because they don't have at time limit like other forms of advertising. Promotional items increase brand recognition through repeated exposure, especially if a business invests in everyday items like pens, apparel, mugs and cups, etc. Everyone likes to receive something for free, so it can be very helpful to have these types of free items to give to potential customers and/or to reward great clients. Businesses may want to increase their use of promotional products during the holiday season, perhaps personalizing bottles of wine or other special gifts. Jenny has lots of ideas and can help you to search for the perfect items to get a business into the hands (literally) of as many people as possible.

She displayed apparel, mugs, and other promotional products that businesses can use to advertise and gain name recognition.

Our speaker was attorney Beth Rondinelli. She focuses on drafting simple wills, powers of attorney, and living wills for her clients. She has low overhead expenses and is happy to pass her savings along to her clients, because she knows how important those three documents are for everyone. She always wanted to be an attorney, and she started out working for law firms and gaining lots of courtroom experience. She left the practice of law for a while, but she was driven to return when a personal tragedy in her family was mitigated by a power of attorney document. This motivated her to make sure that everyone has their traditional estate documents drawn up before they are needed. Beth charges $150 for the three documents, and she will guide you through the process of documenting the necessary details.
