HISTORY OF MARKETING ON MAIN:
Marketing on Main (MonM) is known to attract those that are filled with positivity, passion, and determination. MonM encourages Individuals, and teams to collaborate, connect, and network to make a positive difference personally and professionally. Individuals that attend MonM invite those that they wish to meet, create a relationship with or would like to build their relationship with.
MonM was started in 2016 by Gianna R. Kramer, a local business owner on the dreams of creating a platform that accepts feedback from the community and then uses that feedback to help accelerate professional and personal goals. After seeing growth and demand for the event...Gianna officially started the first season of MonM in 2017 by creating an event on the last Wednesday of each month and collecting feedback through using Facebook to vote on: Venue, non-profit or cause, and theme.
Gianna believes that 90% of business is done with people you like and based on first-hand experiences. MonM continues to evolve based on feedback and some of our favorite assets are:
1. Hands-on business showcases allowing guests to meet the business owners/staff first hand, and touch, see and experience their products and services first-hand. Some business showcases will have raffles, activities, and even promotions to try their products or services at a discount!
2. Speed Networking - Each month MonM has the option for guests to participate in speed networking. An activity that allows you to make up to 30 new connection in 30 minutes!
3. Community Support - Each month a portion of ticket sales goes directly to a non-profit or cause that directly helps the Sarasota Community.
4. Entertainment - Though out the evening enjoy live entertainment from a range of entertainers. MonM is known to have BRAND new acts showcased to extremely popular, world-renowned artists. If you tune into the Facebook event page you will find details!
