Verizon Champions Small- and Medium-Sized Businesses

by Employee ‎05-16-2011 01:27 PM - edited ‎05-18-2011 08:23 AM

It’s National Small Business Week.  As I had mentioned on Friday’s Weekly Roundup, we feel everyday here at Verizon, we work to help small- and medium-sized businesses be productive, have the right tools and put experts at your fingertips.  So in our eyes, every week we’re celebrating small businesses! 

 

Here at Verizon we support SMBs by bringing a broad range of products and services to help you run your business better, faster and more productively.  From our bundled solution which includes the essential services your business needs  (phone, Internet, Internet security, online backup, Google Apps for Business, and an easy do-it-yourself website building platform) to additional cloud bases services, we are SMBs champions.     

 

This blog too as well as the free, live webinars presented by the Verizon Small Business Center (replays are available on-demand) are developed to bring insights from Verizon as well as from our guests and I hope you find them useful and helpful. 

 

I hope you take advantage and engage with renowned author Don Tapscott, who will be giving a live free webinar next Wednesday (May 25 at 2 p.m. ET) as well as be available next Thursday for one hour at 6 p.m. ET to host a live Twitter chat (#bizbooks) to answer questions and to offer advice.  To win a copy of Don’s book be the first 25 to follow us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/VZSmallBiz) and send an email to vzsmallbiz@verizon.net telling us you did it). 

 

To help the Small Business Administration further celebrate National Small Business Week, we will give five full sets of all of the books from the Verizon Author Series to the first five who sends us an email (vzsmallbiz@verizon.net) telling us why you’d like all these books, how you like our blog, what content you’d like to see, what help – if any – we can offer your business or give us some insights about your business.  We’re just looking for direct insights from SMBs like you who read our blog… so expect some communication with us via email. 

 

If you are a Verizon customer, a mom and run your own company, do enter in the Verizon Hardest Working Small Biz Mom Contest – this Sunday (May 22) is the last day for you to win $5,000 cash and other great prizes.

 

Note: Terrie Howard (watch her interview here) and I will be in D.C. later this week to attend some of the conferences and the luncheons taking place during National Small Business Week.  If you’ll be at this summit send us a note to vzsmallbiz@verizon.net so we can meet up, we are always looking to connect with our blog readers and our customers. 

 

Stay tuned to this blog to get updates from the events taking place during National Small Business Week.
