Grow Smart Biz, is brought to you by the company that hosts our blog and sponsors our community events, Network Solutions, a Web.com company. The following is a summary of the most relevant content our sibling blog, Grow Smart Biz has recently published.

The Latest Small Business News from Grow Smart Biz

In a few short weeks, the holiday shopping season will be upon us, and Halloween is barely a week away. If you need to know how to get some of that holiday retail cash for your business, start by making sure your site is prepared from an ecommerce standpoint. And again, don’t forget about getting some extra business around Halloween.

Of course if you’ve been busy making those preparations, you may have missed the announcement that the Web.com Small Business forum is headed to Dallas next, on October 25. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about how to expand your business marketing on the web.

Of course, it’s not all about what happens on the web. We small business owners need information and advice about the offline aspects of our businesses too, things like:

The Small Business Toolkit section has covered some great resources lately, Google for Entrepreneurs, the FedEx Small Business Grant program, and employment law assistance from the Department of Labor, to name a few.
The social media articles this month haven’t been lightweights either. Whether you’re looking to explore using Tumblr, get a better understanding of Facebook, get pointers on live-tweeting, you’ll be able to find the latest information on the topic. There were some great posts specifically about blogging too, including a run-down of blogging tools that professionals use, as well as how to leverage content you’ve created via syndication.
Mobile marketing was not to be forgotten either – check to see what your mobile site may be missing, or how to optimize your content for mobile recipients.
Seems like a lot to cover, doesn’t it? Subscribing might help you get a handle on things – that way you’d get at most a few articles each business day instead of several dozen in one shot.

This concludes the overview of recent Small Business News posts. Typically, not every published article is summarized, so be sure and stop by the tag cloud at the bottom of the Grow Smart Biz blog to flip through posts on your favorite topic.
