This show is about Free Long Beach advertising! Some business owners are skeptical when it comes to free offers. Many refuse to take advantage of the free offer until that have “figured out” how the “money is being made” by those providing the free offers.
This show will dispel some of the age-old notions like “there is no such thing as a free lunch” and other clichés. But, the currently reality is that there are “free lunches” (viable products and services) being provided in the business environment. Simply put – the business landscape has changed and is still changing.
On this show, you will learn about sources of free advertising opportunities in Long Beach as well as why there actually are “free lunches” being provided that are bearing great benefits.
Show host and owner of the Long Beach Online Business Directory, Kalem Aquil, will explain where some of the “free lunches” are being served up. Also, learn how this marketing strategy, when used correctly, can and does increase profit for businesses that practice such strategies.

“We’re fine tuning everything we do, but there is always something new on the horizon.

And, let’s face it, with all of the exciting activities taking place in Bixby Knolls, it will be a good thing to hear more about them.

The Arts Council for Long Beach faces an 11% cut in funding for Fiscal Year 2011. This on top of other cuts over the past several years totaling more than 40%. While we are all sensitive to the city's fiscal realities, we wanted to understand why a city needing investment in its future would cut back on that investment when it needed it most.
For the next two weeks, Re-Imagining Long Beach will address that subject in two one-hour specials beginning August 16.
