Grow Smart Biz Brings You Small Business News
Continuing the theme of getting your business financed, as we discussed in our most recent Twitter chat, Grow Smart Biz recently highlighted Bi2Credit’s recent site for Women in Business. While the coming community bank crunch may create some cash-flow issues, most small business owners have a positive outlook, believing that there is steady modest growth to come.
If your business is one that anticipates growth, you’ll want to prepare for the coming explosion of business. whether you’re a local business expanding a new location, or a restaurant looking to leverage online marketing methods. You’ll also want to have a look at the business and marketing tips on social media, branding, influence, Facebook, Instagram, ecommerce sites, and Prezi. If you’re not familiar with Prezi, it’s a presentation tool we discussed briefly when we profiled Stephanie Diamond, the author of Prezi for Dummies, for our February Women Grow Business chat.
Whether growing or hoping to grow, no business can ignore the trend of mobile marketing. Web.com’s infographic on mobile marketing summarizes a summary of 500 business owners on the subject. If you’re still not convinced, then have a look at the predictions for holiday shoppers and mobile use.
Mobile marketing trends are the only ones to be monitored by small business success. The trends that are causing changes in business travel are of note to anyone who realizes that face to face encounters are not fully displaced by technological advances. For some businesses affecting how affluent men shop are important, for others it may be what college students eat, or what teenage girls have in their purses, that reveals future trends affecting sales or what new markets to go into.
All in all, each week of new post as Grow Smart Biz has information that you may not even realize is of importance. Of course, you can always avoid not missing anything by subscribing. 😉
