Business Women Connect began with one woman, Linda Rendleman, making a commitment to her passion for bringing women together to share their passions and dreams, their resources and educations, and their wish for collaboration. She started with a simple website in 2001, but at that point the concept of being online was not well understood. Linda pushed on; even a bout with cancer didn’t deter her from her purpose.  Using traditional means such as creating her own radio, television shows, dynamic face to face meetings, and online learning, she pointed the way for women in her community to “connect” with each other. Linda has received recognition and numerous awards for her extraordinary speaking and writing abilities. Linda was honored by the Indiana Commission for Women in 2008 as a Torchbearer Recipient for leading and inspiring women to create a greater balance, fulfillment, and quality of their lives.

Today Business Women Connect is an award winning women’s networking company named the number one Networking Company in Central Indiana fives years in a row by the Indianapolis Business Journal. Business Women Connect (BWC) has developed its philosophy for global outreach through online mentoring programs, BWC TeleInterviews, educational articles, E-Books and more. Business and professional women everywhere have the opportunity to gain knowledge and become the best they can be through the interactive website. The website currently has over 6,000 subscribers and BWC is offering chapters for expansion into new markets through out the United States and Internationally.

Linda Rendleman, President and Founder of Business Women Connect Inc., believes that the time is right to expand the company. BWC Inc. is searching for a managing partner to lead this international expansion of the company.   If you have a passion for empowering women, are an entrepreneur and are looking for a new investment, read on.

SALT LAKE CITY––SendOutCards® today introduced Video Cards, the next generation of greeting cards that uses video, web 2.0, smartphone technology and traditional, printed greeting cards as an enhanced way to change lives one card at a time.

“Our unique online system allows you to create and send physical greeting cards without ever leaving your house. We are light years ahead of any competition and Video Cards is one more example of this.”

Through SendOutCards’ online system, Video Cards feature the ability to generate and add a QR Code (Quick Response Code) to any postcard, 2-panel, 3-panel or BIG Card. In a matter of seconds, a paper greeting card can become an interactive Video Card.

The card recipient uses a QR Reader app on a smartphone to scan the code. They are then taken to a personalized video that the card sender has created and hosted online. The Video Card also generates a URL along with the QR Codes that can be easily typed in a web address bar to find the online video.

Greeting cards are about celebrating life! The Video Card not only meets this purpose, it sets a new standard for printed greeting cards by bringing them to life,” said Kody Bateman, SendOutCards’ Founder and CEO. “Our unique online system allows you to create and send physical greeting cards without ever leaving your house. We are light years ahead of any competition and Video Cards is one more example of this.”

While QR Codes have been used primarily as a marketing tool, SendOutCards is pioneering this technology via Video Cards as a life-changing tool.

Video Cards passed a rigorous BETA testing process, which included hundreds of testers, testing hours and cards created. If interested in learning more go to http://www.Cards-4-All.com  and learn more about Send Out Cards.


QR codes!? What are they and why should I care?

You may of heard of these or maybe you have just seen those silly little black and white squares on things? QR codes are the latest item to be used in marketing to the consumer. QR codes are these UPC type looking codes. Here is an example:

Scan This With Your QR Reader or Bar Code Scanner

Take a moment and scan this QR code. All you need is a QR reader or a bar code reader on your phone, ipod or tablet. There are many different readers that are available. Many are Free to download from ITunes or Android Market. They all each have a different way that you can share or store the information read from the QR code. So may have to try a few to find the one that works best for you and your phone.

What did you download?

The QR you scanned had all my contact information. I actually use this now on my business cards as well as having the information printed on the card.  This allows me to introduce the idea to others in my community. Some are aware of them and others are not. But it is a great ice breaker and also an example of how I can help them in their business. QR codes are a part of the services that my company offers. Having my QR code has also made me a memorable meet at networking events.

Another way to share your information with potential clients. This can be used in print or even online.

What can you have in a QR code?

You can have a variety of things including but not limited to a link to a video, business card, coupon, PayPal Link and more. As you can see I created one to my Linked In Profile. There are many different types of QR codes out there. Some require a large amount of money to produce and others are not. As with many new technologies there are different levels of use and creation.

Scan This! Just another example of how you can use a QR code!


How can I use QR code in my business?

The QR code is versatile for a variety ways of marketing. Take a moment and look around at advertisements, you will see the QR code being used my national brands. Use your phone and see how they are using, this how it can be used for your business. Did you notice there is a coupon in my QR?

Are QR codes going to last?

This is a question that is often asked of all technology. We never know for sure, but they have been in use since the 90’s. They are just now becoming more mainstream with the use of smart phones and code scanners available to the consumer.

How much does it cost to create and implement a QR code in my business?

The creation and implementation of QR codes can be cost effective for your business. As I mentioned before there are different levels of investment for QR codes. Just think about if you received one client from this technology would it pay for it self? That is questions that needs to be addressed by your business. However businesses each day make the decision to create and implement the code. The marketing that I am receiving from others is starting to include a QR code. What a great way to put information out in a small area. Great to insert in my print pieces to direct customers to information.

If you are interested in having a QR created for your business you can contact us at Today’s Consulting and we would be glad to help you.


My family would like to take a moment and Thank our military past, present and future. You service is appreciated and honored. We love and support you. God Bless America!


Networking Tip from a friend: Laura Wells When you meet someone, especially at networking events, give enough of yourself to allow others to not only get to know your products but most importantly, to get to know YOU. It is then and only then that you will create the most powerful element for your business growth — friendships.


No matter where you live in rural or in the city, we are all encouraged to use the internet to network and expand your contacts. Online networking can be helpful, but don’t rely on it totally. Online networking is an additional way to network and not the primary way.

We have become a society that is technology attached. We need to remember that is not the only way some does business. There are many people, including me, that believe that there still needs to be a connection other than an internet one. When I meet someone face to face I have a connection with them however small it maybe. Relationships can only really be grown and nourished with face to face. However it can be complimented by online connections.

Networking

With the use of Facebook, Twitter and more we are able to share items with others easily on their time. For example, I would not call everyone I know and let them know I just written a blog entry, but I would and do share this information via online groups, etc. This allows me to share information with people on their on time and preference.

In conclusion, online is important to help promote yourself, brand and even share great events and new with others. These are all nice, but if someone does not have a “relationship” with them, why would they care what was happening with you.  Just some of my thoughts about online and face to face networking.

What are you comments, experience and observations about online networking and face to face networking?
