Social Media - Does It Work ?

Even though we are not a restaurant - I think this is applicable across the board....
Hi Foodies !!

We are testing how Social Media works in the Foodies World...

We have entered a contest, and have posted the link on a variety of Social Media sites...so - please go to

http://www.iledefrancecheese.com/blog/

and vote for MJ's Cheese display.

We are a Tucson based off premise Catering Company, and should we win, we will be hosting a "Cheese Party"... so for those of you in Tucson - you will be able to see how effective Social Media can be...and those of you not in Tucson - please vote for us anyway - it will be interesting to see what the outcome may be.

Thanks ever so,

Creatively,

M.J. Essenmacher
