American Traditional Mississippi Delta Blues Arrived

American Traditional Mississippi Delta Blues were floating through the air at the Port Albert Market on Sunday.

At one point an observation was made “How old would that child be?”… “About three ” came back the reply. Interestingly enough standing there was a child with blond hair. As this child became familiar with a real life singer they relaxed. Now on tv, through videos and play groups, children of this age are used to following dance and movement instructions.

Yet, here was a real life 3D entertainer suggesting that they tap their feet. Slowly the connection between real life and the freedom of movement became associated. Watching first one foot, and then the other lead the legs, and finally the mind, into having this expression permission , was a wonderful thing to witness.

“That is the kind of thing that could well change a child’s life” came the comment.

Port Albert Market was extremely lucky as through the day the natural voiced  was just sailing through the air. The feeling of the American Traditional Mississippi Delta Blues definitely came as the banjo was played. [ type of banjo escapes me] Reminding the listeners of touching base with the earth, the air and the sea. All of which Port Albert Has become famous for this last one hundred and fifty years. While the voice was tickling the ears and strumming the heart beats along. the feet of all began to tap. Preceded by Elixir’s booted feet upon the two wooden box based drums. Then came the harmonica inclusion.

The range of C.D’s on sale show the versatility of what Elixia Blues is capable with. Many of the self written songs included.

Elixir Blues had spent a few hours the previous evening jamming at a the Yarram Theater. After the market, the Port Albert Pub were having an impromptu get together.

As the day progressed stall holders were able to catch a moment to talk to each other. Everyone, market vendors and public, thoroughly enjoyed being able to hear the life within the music as the sun shone and like the music the day unfolded.

2 “q’s Of Effective And Efficient Marketing Results

Effective and efficient marketing has pivotal point to its balance

Be Aware Of The Two Sides To Measure when taking your message out there.  Provide avenues to allow you to engage with people.

 Effective and efficient marketing results take on the qualitative as well as the quantitative measures. That is how many ‘goods” are sold with the feedback as well as the conversations through the social and real life  media being monitored.

Absolutely No Sweat About It. Will Not Forget It.

For instance, how many people on the newsletter list compared to how many people are sharing while also having read and actioned the messages themselves.

In the case of this newsletter, let us look at what this means when syndicating. Qualitative feedback would be:

  • The pub was overflowing.frustrated-and-overwhelmed 2 "q's Of Effective And Efficient Marketing Results
  • Advanced bookings just kept coming in.
  • The progress association had decided to have a market beforehand on the day of the activity.
  • The town’s hotel rooms became full.
  • More townsfolk were ‘casually’ employed the forty-eight hours either side of the event.
  • The public toilets ran out of toilet paper.
  • Extra portable toilets were brought in at last minute, and the list goes on.
  • The reach of the newsletter has exceeded expectations
  • The impact and reverberations of the information within the newsletter has a butterfly effect

These things actually have happened when syndicating relevant information to ‘information hungry’ followers. Go ahead.  Help create a hungry following.

Any one of these is just one reason the newsletter [apply on the side of the screen here] is offered. Read, action, attend. Once a newsletter subscriber becomes involved things happen. The contact message you include will even be opened, read and shared amongst their friends.  This is the same for any business.  Word of mouth has a powerful reach capacity.
