The Wednesday Wisdom has been a written piece produced by Tracy Higginbotham, President of Women TIES and sent to 3,000 women each week to inspire, motivate, educate and share business success strategies. It has become a trademark of the Women TIES brand and adored by many women.

During the month of Thanksgiving and the 50th birthday of Women TIES Founder, Tracy Higginbotham, the Women TIES Syracuse Luncheon & Mini-Holiday Tradeshow: Wednesday Wisdom Live Edition will be held to celebrate the wisdom shared between women entrepreneurs. The event will feature 6-7 extremely positive and smart businesswomen who will share their favorite pieces of business wisdom on topics including sales, marketing, growth and social media marketing.

Because Women TIES is dedicated to women making money, there will be a mini-holiday tradeshow setup around the perimeter of the room to foster sales and revenue during the event. "When you realize your personal mission is to help as many women entrepreneurs as you can make more money, it only makes sense to celebrate a 50th birthday milestone by bringing together women to share their own wisdom and to allow them to make money," states Tracy Higginbotham, President of Women TIES.

As the holiday shopping season begins and women entrepreneurs slow down to enjoy their personal lives with loved ones, we gather together to celebrate each other, the gifts we have to share with the marketplace, our business wisdom and our economic connections with other women. Please come celebrate with us at this special event. It wont be the same without you.

The special event rate for the event includes the lunch, display tables, promotion and sales at $35 per person. A $5 donation per person from the proceeds will be donated to bringing a special group of women from the Northside Ministries to Maria DeSantis Holiday Christmas at the Palace on December 14th to give them some holiday cheer.

Putting together a simple plan, with the right mix of activities to fit your budget, is an effective way to boost your brand presence and increase your sales without having to know everything there is to know about marketing.

At the Women TIES Greater Binghamton Luncheon: "The 5-Step Marketing Plan" sponsored by the Women's Business Center of New York State, Lee Ann Capogrossi, a marketing specialist from Ithaca, NY, will spend 30 minutes helping you build a successful marketing plan for the New Year! Shell also explain the key principles of marketing, why having a marketing plan is important, how to choose the right marketing activities for your audience, and even share some ideas with you on how to market your business without even spending any money!

Lee Ann is a long time member of Women TIES and has presented marketing programs at other events that our members have truly enjoyed. Don't miss this chance to educate yourself on marketing and sales as you prepare for a new business year.

The event is co-sponsored by the Women's Business Center of New York State and the Binghamton Reporter.

Women entrepreneurs can have the best consultations and conversations with prospective clients and yet not land the sale. Customers seem excited about what you are offering and are in high need of your product or service but when its time to commit to a contract, they say they cant afford it. Women are left wondering what can they do to shift the prospects thinking.

At this special Women TIES Mohawk Valley Luncheon and Holiday Showcase, Joleene Moody of JoleeneSpeaks!, will share with women why prospects say no, how to ask the right questions to find out what is causing their negative response and then help move them to a place where they say yes! This will be a highly engaging presentation that will help you learn why your prospects hit the terror barrier and what you can do to pull them out and get them to buy from you. This is a perfect sales program as women entrepreneurs prepare their sales plans and perspective for the new business year.

It is holiday time so we will have tables set up around the room for holiday promotion and marketing. We love when women buy from each other and make money. Come ready to sell and buy.

We are looking for another co-sponsor of this program. Contact the Women TIES office for more information at 315-708-4288.
