The Verizon Small Business team is pleased to sponsor Melinda Emerson or @SmallBizLady’s live Twitter chat this evening, Wednesday, May 23 at 8 p.m. ET.  In observance of National Small Business Week we’ll give away free copies of books by some of America’s greatest small business minds - many have been guests speakers at the Verizon Small Business Center's free webinar series.  All you have to do is to be one of the first 200 to participate in the chat!

 

@SmallBizLady will chat with @SalesLounge or Jennifer Abernethy, author, guest speaker, and small business mentor.  Jennifer authored The Complete **bleep**'s Guide to Social Media Marketing.  Jenn grew her small business by using Facebook for business beginning in January, 2007, and is now a global brand.

 

During this live Twitter chat @SalesLounge will share tips on the power and potential of Pinterest for small businesses. Learn:

 

  • Why is Pinterest so popular?
  • What types of businesses are using it?
  • How can small business best use Pinterest?
  • How you can develop a strategy for Pinterest
  • How you can find and engage customers and potential customers

Verizon takes pride in supporting small businesses across the country.  We provide the broadband, voice services and support that small business owners like you need to grow your business (http://bit.ly/KamkzX).

 

We also offer information and support to America’s 27 million small businesses via a multitude of social media and online options—including access to industry experts via our free webinar series presented by the Verizon Small Business Center (be sure to join at 2 p.m. ET click here for more information or go http://bit.ly/MDpX3g).

 

Most recently, we launched WeCommerce (http://on.fb.me/JNDUvH) a site where all small business owners can create FREE business profiles, browse other profiles for the goods and services their small businesses need, and create networking opportunities with other SMB owners. What’s the connection, you ask? We know that our business doesn’t grow if our small business customers don’t succeed and grow. Our success depends on the success of America’s Small Business owners, like you!

 

We hope to “see” you later this evening on Twitter and feel free to contact us anytime on Twitter (www.twitter.com/vzsmallbiz), Facebook (www.facebook.com/verizonsmallbiz) or via email (vzsmallbiz@verizon.net); we love to hear from you.
