An Announcement

For the past 4 months, I have been working hard on a project that I have been looking forward to completing for the last nine years. You have all gotten to know me through the personal experiences I share on the Life at Buttercup Farm blog. You might know that I have been married for 13 years, that I have two wonderful daughters, and that I live my personal life to the fullest each and everyday. You know that I love to garden, entertain, decorate and cook. What I haven’t shared with you is that I also have a career that I love and have loved for nine+ years.

In 2000, my business partner, Aileen Herndon, and I started Avenue P Strategic Marketing. We have partnered with companies who were looking to improve their current marketing practices or who needed marketing support for a specific project. We have worked with several start-up companies who needed to create their brand from scratch and launch their business.

Aileen and I have built our business solely through word of mouth believing that doing excellent work for our clients is the best way to build our client base. We still feel this is one of the best marketing tools in business.

For a long time, we have been interested in sharing relevant, dynamic information in the areas of marketing, brand, and business topics to an audience bigger than our current client base. The last nine years of business experience has given us the opportunity to know how to help small businesses grow and we are excited to be able to share some of that knowledge with you. Announcing our new website and blog:



There are two parts of the website to note:

  • The main site offers an overview of the services we provide and information about past projects and clients.
  • The Perspectives blog offers pertinent information about marketing and related topics written to help small businesses grow.

I would love it if you stopped by to take a look. If you know of anyone who could benefit from the information on the Avenue Perspectives blog or our services, we would be grateful if you forwarded our link. Avenue P Strategic Marketing works with all sized companies, but have built a niche working with smaller companies (between 1-500 employees). I will be placing a link in the side bar of the Life at Buttercup Farm Blog if you ever want to link over when you are visiting here.



Down home friends and what they say...

Congratulations, Shawn! The new site is great and really shows how much you have put into your venture (while also managing to live a beautiful, balanced life)!

I wish you the best in the new adventure and look forward to seeing how it grows! As one of your recent clients, I am, as you know, a VERY satisfied customer and credit you for opening my eyes to a great way to express and share my life’s passions with the world! What I love is that we connected (through http://www.tracyporter.com) by doing something we both love - and it has led to so much!

Many blessings,

Shawn, What a surprise to find (without even looking) you! Your smile one never forgets and I have thought of you ever since we met at Alexandra Stoddard’s Happiness Week-end two years ago in Stonington. Do you remember me (Bobbie Fey) and my Sister-In-Law Renae Stone? I am from Spokane Wa and we took the train from here to there. I still communicate with Alexandra and anything about her I try to read and that is how I found you through Google. Your web-site is great and I admire all that you do. Your family is beautiful! Can it really be two years ago at this time that we were all sharing with one another at the Stonington Inn. Life gets richer every day and my favorite thing everyday is to read “GRACE NOTES” by Alexandra. You are living a beautiful life!!!! I would love to hear from you whenever you have a minute. ~Happiness & Smiles~ Bobbie Fey
