How to get a handle on the Social Media Craze!

Testimonial for Denise Wakeman's VIP Mentoring Program
Testimonial for Denise Wakeman’s VIP Mentoring Program

New Bern Now was created in the Spring of 2009 as a hobby. After three years, it’s turned into a “monster”.

I’ve been following Denise Wakeman, an Online Visibility Expert and Founder of the Blog Squad, for a few years. Everything that I’ve read on her website and blog has helped me improve New Bern Now. That’s why I contacted her two months ago to help me set a clear path for our community’s “One Stop, Information Shop”.

Since joining her VIP Mentorship program, New Bern Now’s visitors have grown 25%! That was before we launched the new website yesterday!

If you have a website or blog, I highly recommend that you visit to get “tips and tricks” on how you can increase your organization’s online visibility. As Denise says, “Visibility = Opportunity”.

Thank you, Denise for helping me get “above water” and streamline New Bern Now. There’s still a lot of work to be done, but it’s a step in the right direction!

Please feel free to comment below or an email. Don’t forget to visit New Bern Now’s Facebook page!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
