Rainy Day Biking

Rainy Day Biking focus on bicycle visibility and safety germinated from a group ride of friends in beautiful, albeit, rainy Seattle. Don and Edie operated a successful commercial sign shop in Seattle which provided the technology for the first product, bicycle mud flaps. Making them reflective seemed like a natural so we did. About 10 years ago we fabricated a batch for the group and they worked great. After several years we decided to make them available commercially. We started a small website and worked the bicycle trade shows in the Northwest. The response was overwhelming. We have shipped product all over the world including England, Sweden, Portugal and Canada. Trade shows have been equally successful. At the Seattle Bike Expo 3 years ago, we were selling product to other vendors before the doors even opened.

Owner of Webeclectic.com in Wineman’s “Toast to Paso” Commercial

I had the unique opportunity to be in the Wineman’s recent “Toast to Paso” commercial. Although it was tough work standing around in the park in downtown Paso Robles drinking wine for a couple hours, I’m happy to do my part to help promote our community and the amazing events we have here.

Okay, well, not really. But be sure to check out all the services that we do offer on our website (such as custom website design, WordPress blogs and social media setup for Facebook and Twitter): webeclectic.com.

Using Social Media for Online Marketing

Social Media Cocktail Party

Social Media Cocktail Party

At a recent online marketing seminar about email newsletters and social media, the presenter, Kelly Flint of Constant Contact, compared social media such as Facebook and Twitter to a cocktail party with short informal conversations, and email newsletters to a dinner party with more in depth discussions.

There’s a variety of low cost and even free tools that can help you to more effectively use email marketing and social media to promote your business and engage with your customers. For example, email marketing services such as MailChimp.com and ConstantContact.com have built in tools that let you automatically share your newsletters on Facebook and Twitter, as well as track which of your customers visits each social media site. Services like NutshellMail.com can bring a summary of your social network updates to your inbox in a single email that you can schedule.

In the coming months, Webeclectic.com will be focusing on best practices, tips and tricks on how to use social media for online marketing, and general netiquette issues that will help keep you compliant with anti-spam laws and keep your customers happy.

Webeclectic.com in the Community @ Oaktoberfest 2010

Darcie Fulkerson of Webeclectic.com, volunteered to help Hospice of San Luis Obispo County hand out beer steins to the stampede of attendees at Oaktoberfest 2010
Darcie Fulkerson, Owner and Founder of Webeclectic.com, volunteered for Hospice of San Luis Obispo County to help hand out beer steins to the stampede of attendees at Oaktoberfest 2010. The event was held in Avila Beach this year, and thankfully provided multiple shuttles for safe rides home (absolutely crucial, especially since a few of the attendees were already completely smashed upon arriving and claiming their beer steins).

Volunteering for these events is so much fun, especially meeting new people like Judy (see photo above) – the 1st place winner of the 2010 Oaktoberfest costume contest. She was wearing an authentic dirndl from Germany that she wore at her wedding. Very cool.

Webeclectic.com In the Community @ Beers and Bites 2010

Darcie Fulkerson helping out Cayucos Brewing Company at the 2010 Beers & Bites event in Mission PlazaDarcie Fulkerson, Owner and Founder of Webeclectic.com, volunteered to help out at the 2010 Beers and Bites event in Mission Plaza on Saturday, September 5th by pouring beer for Cayucos Brewing Company. The event not only involves a variety of different beers from several local breweries (including some, uh, … very unique varieties), but gourmet food from local vendors as well.

I was inspired by seeing all the fun, crazy beer related t-shirts being worn in honor of the event, including the “Beer is proof that God loves us” t-shirt at Central Coast Brewing, as well as the Goldilocks and the three bears with a beer bong t-shirt worn by a random beer taster. Nice. It might be time for a new, edgier Webeclectic.com t-shirt for the next event… – Darcie Fulkerson

Taking Part in the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour at Cuesta College

Taking Part in Panel Discussion in the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour at Cuesta College

Taking Part in Panel Discussion in the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour at Cuesta College
As the owner and founder of Webeclectic.com, I was honored to have been invited to participate as a panelist in The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour at Cuesta Colege, the first-ever national collegiate entrepreneurship tour. This organization was founded by award-winning 26-year-olds, Michael Simmons and Sheena Lindahl of Extreme Entrepreneurship Education, and is comprised of many of America’s top young entrepreneurs who’ve made, earned, or sold a company for millions and/or made a huge impact before the age of 30! The vision of the tour is for all of America’s college students to graduate with an entrepreneurial mindset. It was such a great experience to be able to answer questions from college students, emerging entrepreneurs, and professors who wanted to inspire students to start their own businesses.
