MoRA Business Mixer, June 2023


Monroe Road businesses attended MoRA’s Business Mixer on Tuesday night, June 27, 2023. The crew had such a good time that several stayed late and suggested that we host mixers more often. Bé-Em Asian Kitchen was the perfect venue, and owner Loan Tran welcomed everyone with warmth, sparkle, and great food.

Loan also spent a minute or two sharing her experience using the 60/30/10 rule of marketing and the impact it had on her business. Here’s the rule:


  • 60% of your posts should be content that people can relate to and get excited about. Or asking a compelling question.
  • 30% is shared content, such as events that are taking place in the local community or shoutouts to places or people that your audience should know about.
  • And the remaining 10% of your posts should promote or be information related to your product or service.
