Bud Johnston, Keepers of the Sacred Tradition of Pipemakers • Culture Camp

“This is the 5th year our tribal non-profit in Pipestone has participated in the MN Field Trip Library and exhibited at the EXPO where we offer our Tribal culture programs. Both the Library and the EXPO have been awesome! Many, many people have talked with us about what we can do, and a number of them either came to our Culture Camp in Pipestone or had us bring our presentation to them. This year’s EXPO at the Minnesota History Center should be even bigger and better!”

“I just want to take a moment and share how excited I am to be a partner in the MN Field Trip Library. I was attracted to this resource because they are, quite literally, the only game in town. What I mean to say is that the people Mark Peterson targets are my prospects. I have been in this field for over 25 years and nothing compares if you want to reach Principals, Teachers, PTAʼs, Community Ed, Park & Recreation leaders, Scouts etc.

Of course, the key ingredient to my satisfaction is an understanding of how this process works. The results may not be immediate, you must be patient as you build a strong foundation under the expert guidance of Mark Peterson. This is a man who understands what your goals are. He will work to get you together with the people who make the buying decisions. Plus, be ready for an occasional nudge from him as to what to do. He is invested in your success because he knows he has a responsibility to meet the needs of the visitors to the Library.

Anyone who has been in the business of selling a service or product knows how hard it is to establish credibility. The results are not instant and requires some patience, but with the email alerts, the conferences, and the online presence you will find that people will start to remember you. A marketing study revealed it takes a minimum of 7 exposures to your ad before someone pays attention. Partnering with the MN Field trip library will increase your exposure dramatically and you will reap the rewards.


Thanks, Mark for your innovative service and I look
forward to sharing my success with you!”
