Verizon Business Markets Blog

Copper Contributor Monte_Beck ‎11-04-2011 06:56 AM

birthday_cake (1).JPGA year ago today the Verizon small business team launched the Verizon Small Biz Blog. We wanted this to be a platform where we could communicate directly to you – small business owners and those of you contemplating starting a business and seeking information.  And, we wanted this platform to be the place for you to communicate directly to us with your comments.

 

We’ve come a long way over the past year with our blog.  We’ve written about and shared insights on disaster planning, how easy it is to create a website, best practices we learned and how these might be incorporated into your business.

 

In our posts, we’ve also explained how you can utilize some of the free resources that are available at the Verizon Small Business Center like “Professional Networking” which allows you to connect with other small/medium business owners or to find leads and get questions answered by your peers. 

 

We “spiced up” this blog with featured posts from special guests and around mid-August we introduced the “Weekly Round Ups.”  If you haven’t seen our Friday posts, they’re small collections of articles we find of interest to the small/medium-sized business owner in a quick, easy-to-read format. 

 

To further show our support of small businesses, last month –  in connection with Small Business Saturday – we announced that we’ll give any small business that posts its  information on this blog a $25 AMEX gift card – urging you to spend it at a local business.  We’ve got more AMEX gift cards to give away so do participate if you haven’t done so yet!

 

To delve further online in the social media space, last month the small business team joined Twitter and Facebook; follow us and “Fan” us if you haven’t yet visited us on these sites.

 

In the Verizon Small Biz Blog, we’re trying to bring you information and capture emerging trends relevant to you and your business, as well as providing you with content you’d like to see.  So feel free to comment below and let me know what you like about our blog or what you’d like to see.  Any and all feedback will help us better shape this blog to be one that you can rely on to get the business tips and insights you need to take your business to the next level.

 

By the way, if you are looking to start a blog for your business, read this for some good tips and get growing!
