Weekly Round Up: Avoid the Yo-Yo Effect with Your Small Biz

by Employee on ‎08-12-2011 09:40 AM

VZ small_biz_info ICON.pngStocks were down, then up, then down again this week, but your small business doesn’t have to run with the same yo-yo effect. Read on to learn how to make the most of these turbulent times with this roundup from the Web:

 

 

Are you in LA-LA Land?

 

If you’re in the Los Angeles, California area this weekend, don’t forget to stop by the LA Convention Center for the West Coast Expo (today through Sunday). The exposition and trade show is for small, medium, and large businesses with goods, products, and services to market on the West Coast.

 

Author Series Wrap-Up

 

The expansion of the Verizon Author Series brought us a live Twitter Chat with Melinda Emerson,  author of “Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months; A Month-By-Month Guide to a Business That Work.”

 

Up next week, be sure to join Wendy Stevens, “Local Guerrilla Marketing” co-author (with Jay Conrad Levinson). The LIVE Twitter chat begins at 7PM (ET) on August 18.

 

For tips on how to join our LIVE Twitter chats, check out this past post or check out this short video tutorial (just go about 59 minutes into this webcast).  Of course, don’t hesitate to post your questions below.

 

This week's articles are compiled by Ryan Morris, social media manager for Verizon.

 

Have a great weekend!
