Free Publicity Opps and Birthday Discounts

Posted March 6, 2017 by Margie Zable Fisher Comment
I share my birthday with International Women’s Day on Wednesday, March 8, 2017. I love birthdays and I love to celebrate!
My Mom got me a great gift already. It’s a jewelry box that plays the song “Margie,” which is a jazz standard, but not too well-known today.

To celebrate with all of you, I’ve asked former and current clients, vendors and friends to offer discounts during the month of March for my readers, on products and services.
In addition, check out the free Publicity Opportunities below (some deadline today).
Enjoy the month!
Warm Regards,
Margie
