Meeting New Tweeps at Newmarket Tweetup

I’m sure you’ve all heard me say it already… I’m just amazed at the turnout for the Newmarket Tweetup at Mr. Greek’s this past Tuesday night.

We had at least 55 people show up that we were able to count via the RSVP form and registration signup.  I know there were people we missed counting though.  Including at least Brianne from Rogers TV, the SNAP Newmarket reporter and Jane Twinney.

So far everyone has gone out of their way to let us know how thrilled they were about the event and I am so grateful for all the support and the kind words.




I do want to thank Mr. Greek and specifically Guy (don’t we look nice in this picture?) for making this event possible.  Guy has a great sense of humour and I’ve enjoyed working with him on planning this event.  I’m hoping to have a YRSBiz night out for one of the nights they have the belly dancer performing!  Should be fun.

Another thank you to Greg from PromotionalMarketing.ca for providing the swag bags that our YRSBiz members didn’t hesitate to fill with amazing offers and yummy treats!  Of course I am also so grateful to the 25+ business owners that donated prizes!  Wow! It’s all I can say!


I also want to thank my team members GemilTunde and Dana for their support and the time they dedicated to making sure #YRSBizNMKT went smoothly.  None of this would have ever happened if it wasn’t for their commitment to YRSBiz.

A special Thank You to Tunde for also taking these amazing pictures (except the blurry one of the three of us, that was from my iPhone!)  There are more on our Facebook page at: http://facebook.com/yrsbiz, be sure to check them out.  I’ve tried to tag everyone in them, but there may be some I missed, so feel free to tag and share.

Finally, I need to apologize for forgetting to give out one of the prizes at the event!  We didn’t realize until after the event that we hadn’t received the Mabel’s Labels gift certificate.  So, we are going to give it away this week!  Please leave a comment below about #YRSBizNMKT and give us some feedback! Tell us what you loved, what you’d like to see improved (sorry A/C went kaput a few hours before the event!) and let us know if you made a new connection that you are looking forward to getting to know better now!  We will draw from everyone who leaves a post here on Monday and announce it on our Facebook Page for Marketing Monday!

Thank you again to everyone for attending.  I was so thrilled to meet some new faces and get to reconnect with some familiar ones.

Hope to see you all again soon!
