On the road again….
Red Mango Marketing hit the road last week visiting clients in Central Texas. We didn’t see Willie Nelson, but hummed along to his tunes as we headed south. Vickie and Karen spent 4 days meeting with existing clients, including Morales Feed & Supply and New Braunfels Feed & Supply, and calling on prospects. Vickie navigated our way through the back roads of Texas were we saw plenty of interesting sites, like this beautiful pink, rhinestone saddle at Silvers Pet & Feed, a VW Bug in a tree outside La Vernia, TX, a historic dance hall in Gruene, TX, and the fabulous river walk in San Antonio. Sure wish we had a picture of the VW Bug, maybe next time.
Special thanks to David Harrison and Margo Kahla for taking time of our their business schedules to introduce us to some of their clients. We’re looking forward to working with some new clients in the near future, including La Vernia Feed & Supply.
We saw the devastation from the ongoing Texas drought first hand. Ponds are dried up and cattle are scarce having been sold off by most ranches and farms. Fires are everywhere and the smell of smoke was strong during our trip. In Bastrop, Cadwell and the surrounding counties more than 1400 homes have burned. Bastop Feed & Supply is collecting funds to help feed rescued livestock and animals with hay, feed and related care items. To help you can donate online at Bastrop Feed & Supply. The American Red Cross is also accepting donations to assist with the thousands of displaced families. Please pray for rain.
Tina and Meghan kept Red Mango Marketing humming along during our trip. And thanks to our webmaster, Richard Kinney, who was “johnny on the spot” during our sales calls. We closed a deal and selected a new website “skin” in record time thanks to Richard and technology. Our intern Meghan said goodbye to us this week and is headed back to college. We will miss her dearly, and so will our clients! Meghan rocked during her time with us and entered a record breaking 600 new customer contacts in 2 weeks! Ark Country Store and Walden Farm & Ranch definitely benefited from Meghan’s assistance. So long, Meghan!
