POMA is Working for its Members
Let POMA Work for You
Just a few weeks after the conference, with one project, I was able to generate coverage for six POMA Corporate Partners. And, with the participation of those partners, I was able to write a much more rich and interesting review. Everyone wins, and that demonstrates to me how powerful and beneficial POMA membership is for journalists, manufacturers and organizations.

"It pays to be a POMA member," Darren Warner said in a recent note to POMA. "As a member, I'm able to receive more than three times as much for my work, from Buckmasters Rack magazine, than I would if I were not a POMA member."
I was stuck in a rookie outdoor writer rut. I needed encouragement from my peers, guidance from leading experts, and a mentor who genuinely cared if I succeed or failed. So, I joined POMA. Being welcomed with a smile and handshake followed by the question "What can we do for you?" has changed my career. Within four weeks, I landed a regular column assignment and five feature assignments that resulted in a great paycheck. Thanks POMA for giving me the tools I needed to take my career to the next level.
POMA generates income for me on an almost weekly basis, in a strange way.
Most members use Money Line as a job and freelance opportunity listing. I use it to generate editorial content ideas, especially for business/trade content buyers. Job listings offer tons of information about challenges faced by companies in our industry. I use those challenges as a basis to develop story ideas to pitch to editors/buyers. Thanks POMA for all you do!
POMA provides incredible opportunities, far exceeding any expectations I had for being a POMA member. POMA Money Line listings provide room to spawn new thinking, expand opportunities, explore life in a new facility or role, just great! Keep up the great work!
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate our membership in POMA. I thought you might like to hear a great example of why it is important for companies like mine to support you.
John Phillips has a new book, with a second volume already being worked on, that teaches people How to Hunt Big Bucks on Small Properties. He has realized from our conversations over the years at conferences that MyTopo's private land data, which provides property owner names and boundaries on smart phones and printed maps, goes hand-in-hand with this type of hunting.
Consequently, John is recommending his readers visit www.mytopo.com to get their digital and print private land maps. And, in turn, I am recommending to all MyTopo customers to buy and read his book.
I greatly appreciate the opportunity to come to the conferences and meet writers and get to know them. The ones who are actively writing are great about learning how MyTopo can help them with any mapping needs they have personally or professionally and incorporating us into stories whenever possible.
As I was writing this, John called to set up a taped interview tomorrow for an article he is doing about hunting on public lands! Isn't that awesome?
Thank you for doing all the behind-the-scenes work to bring writers and companies like mine together.

Being a POMA Corporate Partner has been extremely beneficial for Prois. Not only are we able to get our gear in front of those who can help promote us, it is a great networking organization!

"Like many POMA members, I wear a variety of hats. Part TV production, part public relations, part freelance writer, my job varies and I go where the day takes me. The associations I build, the contacts I make and the information I learn at POMA's Summer Business Conference helps me every step of the way. From negotiating fees for services Mossy Oak Productions may use, or setting fees my freelance efforts may earn, I lean on sessions and advice from mentors and peers at POMA.
When I'm brainstorming for new revenue ideas, I call upon the same, and when I'm shooting still photos to support my writing, POMA lessons weigh in again. I look forward to the conference each summer because, when you can do business with your friends, you know you're in the right place."

Well, that didn’t take long. I just sent in my dues payment and I’ve already seen a 400 percent return on the investment thanks to a tip from the Money Line. Thank you POMA!!!!!!
No one is doing what POMA is doing when it comes to education and opportunities. POMA reacts quickly to situations and is in tune with the needs of media and industry.
POMA & Social Media
In addition to offering POMA-book, a private social media service just for members, POMA has elected to use three social media outlets for posting news, member info, event information and other tid bits of interest.
