Women entrepreneurs start their businesses with little experience. After two, five, ten years or more in business, they can look back with hindsight to see how they have grown as entrepreneurs and how that growth has led to more monetary business success. Many of the lessons learned at different milestone moments in business can be valuable lessons for every woman in business.

At the quarterly Women TIES Greater Albany Event "Becoming a Financially Stronger Businesswoman," Linda Fake, Founder of Uniquely Yours, a ten year old business based in Little Falls, will share major business lessons to motivate and assist other women entrepreneurs. Learn how protecting your time and talent, getting the right continuing education, hiring other professional women, having 60 seconds of courage, and increasing rates can lead to more corporate revenue.

This is an excellent program for women in any stage of business. Walk away with some secrets of the surviving and thriving in entrepreneurship from the speaker. We'll open the event up for discussion on the subject as well. This is meant to be both an educational and inspirational program.

The event is co-sponsored by the New York Women's Business Center. Learn more about them at www.nywbc.org. They offer free business services to women entrepreneurs across New York State.

We are looking for another co-sponsor of this program. Please contact our office at 315-7080-4288 or info@womenties.com for more information on the outstanding marketing benefits a sponsorship offers to a woman owned business.

The last thing women entrepreneurs have time to do in their already busy schedules is learn about the latest technology changes to stay competitive and relevant. When Google expanded their use of "mobile-friendliness" as a ranking signal in April, it resulted in the possibility of significant decrease in website rankings in mobile search results.

At the Women TIES Rochester Summer Program: "Moving Your Website to the Top: Why a Mobile Friendly Website is Crucial for Success" Sponsored by ELS Federal Credit Union, Susan Jefferson of TechCreative Web Design & Consulting will share what a mobile friendly website looks like, why it is important for your success, and what to do if your website is not mobile friendly. You'll walk away with additional SEO tips for higher search rankings.

Take some time this summer to learn about a subject that is vital to your business - technology! At the same time, you can promote your business and increase your summer sales connections to foster new economic "ties."

We have made sure to order a nice big healthy harvest salad for the luncheon entree this time in case you didn't prefer the full meal last time.

The program is sponsored by ESL Federal Credit Union a full-service financial institution with $5.0 billion in assets. The locally-owned financial institution employs more than 680 people in Rochester, New York, and includes approximately 325,000 members worldwide. Learn more about them at this event when Rochelle Fields speaks or visit their website at www.esl.org.

The event is media sponsored by our good friends at the Rochester Women's Network. Come speak to members in their group and learn about their programs. Visit www.rwn.org.

With social media marketing hitting the market so strongly the past few years, women entrepreneurs have forgotten that simple press release marketing can still garner their companies valuable, free attention. Local and national media sources are still looking for simple press releases to create stories to fill radio and television airwaves and print publications. Once press releases have been picked up by the media, the entrepreneur can then enhance the outreach of the promotion by sharing it on social media nationally.

At this special Women TIES Syracuse "Summer Press Release and Promotion Luncheon Program", long time PR specialist Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham, President of Women TIES, LLC, will show women how to construct a press release, where to send it and how to share the published news through social media for more reach. This is a program our members have wanted.

This event will include a buffet luncheon at Rachel's Restaurant followed by a 45 minute educational program.

The summer is the perfect time before the busy fall business season to learn how to write, distribute and share your business news with traditional and social media.

We are looking for a sponsor for this program especially if you have a business that is looking to market something special this summer and fall. We will produce an event press release and send it out to market your company if you become the sponsor. Contact our office for further information at 315-708-4288.
