In this A to Z series on promotion and marketing we've covered a lot of ground. The essence of it all is to aim high and try to reach the zenith of your marketing goals. If you have targeted correctly and followed a logical practical progression of marketing steps then you are likely to do well in your efforts. Success does not necessarily mean being number one, but achieving the mission you set out to do and knowing that you did your personal best. Another measure of success in marketing is how much you learned from your experience and if you've laid down some solid groundwork towards future promotional efforts.
Hard work on today's promotion is the experience that makes tomorrow's promotions a little bit easier and maybe even more fun. I hope that you've enjoyed my marketing series and even more I hope I've provided some of you information that you can use and inspired you to press forward. Keep me posted about your efforts. And be watching for the next What Works Online Marketing Symposium.

Battle of the Bands: May 1st Edition
Tomorrow this blog will be presenting another Battle of the Bands post. Two different artists performing the same song. Which is best? You decide. Please join me here tomorrow for more information and let your musical preferences be known. My two previous Battles had record voting numbers due to being incorporated into the A to Z Challenge. I hope I can keep those numbers up for my first post-Challenge Battle.
Tomorrow's post will take the place of my usual Friday post. After all, I've been posting almost daily for the past month and besides I want to give the most visitors an opportunity to vote in the Battle of the Bands. Please vote!
Blogging from A to Z Reflections 2014
On Monday May 5th I'll be joining a good many A to Z Challenge participants in looking back over the 2014 April Challenge to tell about my experiences and my observations about the mighty A to Z blogging event.
For those who are wondering what this is, the premise is simple. Between now and next week put up a post on your blog telling us what you thought about the A to Z Challenge this year. Let us know how you were helped or hindered by the Challenge. If you discovered any blogs that particularly stood out for you then let us know. You can even tell us about favorite pieces that you posted on your own blog.
You can provide statistics to give us insight about how the event affected your blog. If you have complaints this is the time to vent your feelings. And we always welcome praise. The Reflections post is your opportunity to sound off whether it be good, bad, or neutral. Like your challenge post your presentation can be in any form you like. Your post can be prose, poetry, images, or even sound. You can be serious, funny, or just conversational.
Once you've got your Reflections piece posted then you can add the link directly to that post on the Linky List that will be available on Monday May 5th. The A to Z Challenge Reflections Post has been a venerated tradition since the first Challenge of 2010. Don't be left off the list!
Did my A to Z Marketing Series offer you any ideas that you think you'll use? Did the series inspire you? Will you join me for the Battle of the Bands on May 1st? Are you going to post an A to Z Reflections Post?
