Newmom, that is a really cute site! I bought a harness and leash set for a gift from there before. I can't look at the site again! I've been spending to much $$ on the boys

Have you looked on Meetup.com? Look for a group in your location. Do it before the 15th though. They are going to start charging then so a lot of groups are probably going to not use Meetup.com after that. But you can at least contact the organizer between now and then.

The group I organized decided to go out on our own. It has worked out great. I made up some signs and business cards. I set up an email account to use for the group and we are using Evite to send out the meeting information. It is just as good and free. If you PM me your email address I can email you the flyer and business cards I made up. You can use them as a template to make your own.

yeah..

I tried advertising for it some more... I might start a meetup outside of that web site when they charge money like Lexi's mom stated. I'll let you know the new info when i get it.

What I have done to spread the word about our group is to go to all the pet stores, groomers, vets, etc. in the area and either give the business cards to hand out or post a flyer. You can get a pack of blank business card that you put in your print at Walmart for less than $4. I printed contact information for the group on the front and on the back I put a sentence about checking out the forum on spoiledmaltes.com.


Oh, and keep some of the business cards with you so that if you see someone with a maltese you can just give them one. I keep some in my purse and car.

Well... since everything is being imported... its taking me longer to get this up and running. I would say I need another month or so... but i will know more in about 2 weeks. I'm trying to take all your considerations into account. This forum is so helpful... specially because I dont have a girl dog... so I dont know what owners of a girl dog like.. haha... I'm NOT into DRESSES!!
Anyway.. any more suggestions would be GREAT! I'm trying to have all unique things...and i'm also going to use my business to educate pet owners!
I'm going to spread the word about rescues (I think you'll like that part Ladysmom)!
I have learned that everything takes time... and this is taking A LOT of time and planning. I hope everyone likes it!


one more question.. I see some web sites have more "chic"(expensive.. like a cashmere sweater) clothes instead of just simple cute items (like a cute sweater that isnt over $100)... which do you purchase more? (I hope that made sense.. haha)

Thanks everyone! :D
