Inc Magazine is a great source for Entraprenuars

This article from Inc. Magazine (or Inc.com) is from October 2010 but it’s still the most decided and clear study I’ve read about the effects of on-line social media marketing.

Let me give you just a small taste: Seven out of 10 consumers are more likely to use a local business if it has information available on a social media site!

Sooooo…how’s that Facebookpage of your’s looking NOW?

And what exactly have you Tweeted lately? Better get on it. Complaining that it’s a “time sucker” is no longer a good excuse. It’s like saying, “I could get a lot more accomplished if all these customers didn’t keep interrupting me.”

It’s a good read. Click and check it out.

Here is just one more little, personal bit of advice. My six year old website, www.totalbroadcasting.com, never had more visitors to it than the very first week I was on Twitter. And after that initial peak its number of visitors has never dipped down to the low levels it had consistently before that time.

So get busy on Facebook, LinkedIn, Biznik, Twitter, etc.

Does your brand even need a website anymore? | memeburn

Business as Usual (Men at Work album)

Image via Wikipedia

Remarkable as it may seem many businesses, small businesses, don’t have a website. For those of us who live online it seems beyond comprehension to think of operating even the smallest business without a website. And yet, it’s done all the time. This brief article speaks to both points of view- “NO” you don’t need a website for your business; and “YES” you most certainly do need a website. In case there is any doubt I fall firmly in the Yes category. Why? Because websites can be so easy and inexpensive these days to not have one gives a very negative reflection on your business. Read the article for more perspective.
