SMRBA Celebrates Its First Birthday

We Officially Begin Our Second Year

happy-birthday-balloonsOn September 5th SMRBA officially turned one year old. We couldn’t have done it without the help and support of all of our members. It’s fair to say we’ve had a very interesting first year. We set out to do something pretty ambitious and acquired 88 member businesses in our first 12 months. We are very pleased with our growth and even more excited about what’s planned for SMRBA Members in our second year.

In our first 12 Months we debuted our SMRBA Website and Blog, Weekly Business Wake Up Networking, Lunchtime Marketing Series, Monthly Tailwind Newsletter, Quarterly Business After Dark Get Togethers and the SMRBA Podcast.

Most recently we added Live Chat to the site, along with a Members Only Access Area.

Arriving Shortly: Monthly Membership Fees, More Members Only Access, More SMRBA Podcast Episodes and (finally, after platform delays from Apple) the launch of our SMRBA Mobile App.

And we have even more exciting events and member benefits for our next 12 months. We proud to have you as a SMRBA Member and we look forward to serving you and your business in our second year.

SMRBA's Lunchtime Marketing Series, Thursday, July 28th


SMRBA Presents the next program in our Lunchtime Marketing Series. This Thursday from 11:30 am to 1 pm at the Empowerment Systems Media Room, 2066 Apache Trail #116, Apache Junction, AZ 85120.

kandice linwrightOur topic is Using Facebook for Business. We’re excited to have Special Guest speaker, Kandice Linwright. Kandice is a writer and consultant who works almost exclusively teaching Facebook Marketing to her clients.

A couple of our members heard her speak recently in the Valley and suggested her for the series. They said she is excellent and awesome and spoke on a level they could understand.

Kandice will be teaching Five Ways to Grow your Business with Facebook even if you have no fans, no engagement and no budget.

That sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

There is no cost to attend this workshop, but you’ll need to pay $6 if  you want to eat the delicious lunch provided by Angie and her staff at The Sandwich Shoppe. Lunch includes a pulled pork sandwich, Hawaiian cole slaw, cookie and bottle of water. Pretty sweet for just $6.

You know the drill. We need to call and confirm lunch with Diane at 480-349-7725. We’re expecting a packed room so get there early and be ready to get some great marketing info from Kandice about building your business with Facebook. Call Diane and book lunch, and we will see you there on Thursday.
