Dear Customer,
In March, we happily welcomed the arrival of Spring with the birth of our son, William Rainier Rozelle.  His birth weight was a healthy 8 lb 3 oz, and he was 21 inches long.  Bob and I are over the moon, as this is our first child.  And he's already a proud Locavore!
This month, we are pleased to offer some new designs and product specials to help you continue your marketing preparations for the 2009 growing season!  We are also showcasing a new web site store designed by Bob for American Premium Blends and some tips on why you might want to establish your own web site, if you don't already have one.
Happy Spring!
Joan Tobin Rozelle

APB_border_logoAmerican Premium Blends launches On-line Store! 

American Premium Blends, a Michigan-based company that produces high-quality fruit juice concentrates, recently launched an on-line store and blog designed and programmed by Bob Rozelle of Eat Local Food. 
With products that have no added sugars, colors, flavors or preservatives, American Premium Blend's mission is to develop healthy living drinks that will empower their customers to achieve and maintain a healthy life style.  Prior to the launch of their on-line store, American Premium Blends products were available at stores, restaurants and farmers markets located all over Michigan.  When visiting Michigan, out-of-state visitors frequently asked the owners of the company how to purchase their products elsewhere.  The new on-line store not only gives American Premium Blends access to out-of-state customers, but provides existing customers with an easy ordering mechanism to try new products, place re-orders, and send healthy gifts to friends and family. 
The American Premium Blends blog allows the company to stay in touch with Michigan customers by announcing weekend free tasting events, farmers market locations and product news.  Visit their new blog to stay tuned with current company happenings!
Consider expanding your market base with an on-line store.  Visit our Eat Local Food blog to read more about our web site offerings and the design and development process! 

WebCartWhy do I need a web site or on-line store?
1)  You can't be in two places at once - you will tap into new markets that don't require your physical presence.
2)  It's a way to stay in touch with existing customers and let them know you're still here!
3)  Presenting a good impression as an established business adds to your authenticity.
4)  With proper presentation and promotion, your web store will make sales for you.

For more on the benefits of a web site, please visit our Eat Local Food Blog.
