What is a Mommy Bag?

A Mommy Bag is a packet/bag of advertising pieces, coordinated by Lynn Marketing Concepts, put together in order to broaden the advertising market for small businesses in the Lexington, Kentucky area. Our target market: Mommies and Women in general! We want to encourage all small business owners to participate but especially welcome those businesses owned by women. There is a modest fee to participate each month in the Mommy Bag Program and the only other costs involved in participating are in what you decide to create or include as your advertising piece for the Mommy Bags!

Great Tool To Use for your own Business

Hello Ladies!

Just wanted to mention a great new tool I just found and implemented on my own blogs and wanted to suggest you look into using it for your websites and blogs (if you have a blog!). 

This is actually very neat!  It is a Search Engine Submission Tool that does all the work for you and believe it or not, it is completely FREE!  What a deal, right?  

Here are the quick details:  This site will submit your website/blog to 145 search engines for you automatically after you fill out a few short details about yourself and your site.  It does take a little while for it to upload to all the search engines and it will tell you that it may take 6-8 weeks for your ad to actually appear but hey it's FREE, so who cares!!!
The site even provides Free Web Statistics, provides tools to optimize your website, and best of all just might increase traffic to your website.  The time it takes to fill out the short form online is about 6 minutes and then it may take up to 10 minutes for the site to upload your site to all search engines, but it gives you the details on which submissions were successful and which ones failed.

I already did 2 of my blogs in the time it took me to type this blog post.....try it , it certainly can't hurt !!!!
Here is the link to the site again:

FREE Automatic Search Engine Submission Tool

Let me know if you use it and your results!

Hello Mommy Bag Ladies

I just delivered the first round of July Bags , this past Thursday, to the Leader of Lexington Mommy and Me Meetup.com group!   She was so excited when she saw the bags, she immediately went through hers while I was standing there, and couldn't get over some of your fillers!!!  Great things should start happening very soon ladies!  Keep your eyes and ears open for new customers very soon!

The 2nd and final round of July Bags will be delivered this week, around Wednesday!  These bags are going to The Greater Lexington Paralegal Association and will be passed out at their Monthly Luncheon on July 29th .
I think they will be pleasantly surprised with the fabulous bags.

You ladies really did a great job with these first bags, I am very impressed with every one's fillers.......I can tell we have some awesome business ladies on this team!!!
I will be sending out an email later this weekend to see if anyone is interested in joining us in August. I know some of you have already told me you will be participating but I need a commitment so I can contact other reps from the companies if you aren't interested in participating next month.  I have a waiting list, and they are getting restless!!

Talk with you all very soon,

I received the Mommy Bags today from UPS, and I am almost ready to start the assembly of 200 bags!  I am
excited and a little scared at the same time, I don't want to get overwhelmed!  LOL

I have received all payments, I am still waiting on a few people to bring me their fillers but they have scheduled a time to drop them off or will be in the morning.

I will be sending out an email when all bags are finished along with a picture of the final product so you all can see what each of the Mommies received! 

Keep in mind that August in just around the corner and if you want to continue your journey with Mommy Bags , there will be some new rules/expectations in order to participate.  So you will also be receiving an email with the "invitation" to sign up for August Mommy Bags before I send it out to everyone else. 
Remember you are receiving the price of $25/month while new members are paying $30/month. 

Keep in touch and feel free to post comments on here if you would like to do so....

Recommended Resource to you as Small Business Owners

I have a fantastic resource I wanted to mention to you if you are a small business owner and prefer to handle all of your marketing tasks yourself....or if you are just starting out and want to learn more about the different ways to market your business to potential customers.  We would all like to increase our client/customer base, that just means making more money in the long run!!

The book is called: Word of Mouth Marketing: How Smart Companies Get People Talking,  Revised Edition by Andy Sernovitz

Here is a brief description of what you will find inside this book:

Who Is Talking About You?

Foreword by Seth Godin and Afterword by Guy Kawasaki.

Master the art of word of mouth marketing with this practical hands-on guide.

With straightforward advice and humor, marketing expert Andy Sernovitz will show you how the world's most respected and profitable companies get their best customers for free through the power of word of mouth.

Learn the five essential steps that make word of mouth work and everything you need to get started using them. Understand the real purpose of blogs, communities, viral email, evangelists, and buzz--when to use them and how simple it is to make them work.

Learn what sparks the irrepressible enthusiasm of Apple and TiVo fans. Understand why everyone is talking about a certain restaurant, car, band, or dry cleaner--and why other businesses and products are ignored. Discover why some products become huge successes without a penny of promotion--and why some multi-million-dollar advertising campaigns fail to get noticed.

Open your eyes to a new way of doing business--that honest marketing makes more money, because customers who trust you will talk about you. Learn how to be the remarkable company that people want to share with their friends. (edited by author)

I GOOFED up bigtime!

Hello Ladies,

I just realized a few days ago that I have been giving out the wrong blogsite address for my main business.
Don't really have an excuse for this other than the fact that I have been extremely busy working on our very First Mommy Bags Campaign.  I want this to be fantastic for everyone (you, the advertisers and for the Mommies/Women receiving the Bags)!  So here is the CORRECT address to Lynn Marketing Concepts:


Please visit the site, I have been posting some suggestions (both free and low-cost) on how to market your business in an inexpensive and efficient way!


Best way to save money/earn money back on purchases .....

Hello Ladies,
Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Weekend!  We had a fabulous time spending the 4th of July with friends and family.....
Now back to the daily grind!  lol

But on a more serious note, if you want to find a way to save/earn money back for all your purchases you make online, then it is imperative for you to sign up for Ebates.  This website is wonderful, they have thousands of merchants you can shop and you earn a percentage of each purchase (every store is different on the percentage they "rebate" to you from your total purchase) back.....just like a regular Rebate, only there is no paperwork to fill out, no need to save receipts and mail them in either, you just go to Ebates and choose your store, place your order, then your rebate is automatically credited to your EBATES account.  Then once a month they process your rebate into the form of payment that you choose:  either a check sent to your address or they deposit it directly into your paypal account!  How easy is that?  It is very easy and I have been saving/earning for years with EBATES.

Check it out for yourself:  Ebate Account Sign Up  when you sign up through this link you will receive a $5.00 sign up bonus to get you started!  And the ebates account is always free, heck they are paying you $5.00 to just sign up for a free account to save money/earn money back rebates.

Couldn't be any easier than this,
