Baying Hound president Rachel Tayse Baillieul was featured in an article about using social media in the magazine Columbus C.E.O.

Rachel was interviewed about Baying Hound’s use of twitter, facebook, and this blog in marketing for our eco-friendly store.

From the article: “In all of our marketing, we try to think like the consumer and as consumers ourselves, it is more about listening or providing answers than just trying to sell,” she says.  Bayng Hound’s use of social media is

Thank You!

It isn’t in our nature to self-promote much.  We don’t like to nag or beg.  But the last few weeks we have been doing everything we can to get out the votes for the Intuit Small Business Grant Competition.

THANK YOU to everyone who listened, voted, and left comments.

We are moved by the support.

The results of the competition will be announced June 4.  To us, we have already won by hearing from so many lovely customers and friends.
