Weekly Round Up

Most of you are probably watching football right about now, but I want to get this up as I didn’t get the chance to on Friday.


Many enjoyed and learned so much from John Jantsch’s webinar last week (Jan. 12) – the replay to ‘Useful Search for Twitter’ will be up soon for those who want to catch a replay.  For now, John’s slides are available by clicking here.


Mark your calendar as John will be back again this coming Wednesday (Jan.26.) to share steps to create your very own social media conversion system.


While Mr. Jantsch will show you how to generate leads; let’s not forget that once you have a customer you need to keep them coming back or to continue working with your business.  This short video from the Wall Street Journal showcases a successful small business in the New York metro area that treats his customers like family and friends and finds products (or solutions) that are unique to attract and keep them coming back for more.


Now, in this very blog, we’ve talked about the need of a website for your business.  Some of you may have a website, but are you using it to help generate leads… leading to sales?  This is a good read from the New York Times small business blog featuring a limousine company that for years treated its website as if it were an online brochure… one day this business owner made some changes and today, 85 percent of his business comes from the Internet… his website!


And speaking of websites, this short read will provide some tips to configure analytics for your business website.  Of course, if you subscribe to a new bundled service from Verizon you’ll get a simple do-it-yourself website building software and more for six months.  Click here for more details.


Lastly, in this very blog, we have discussed the importance of prepping your business in case of a disaster such as a hard drive crash, malware/virus, etc.  This study from Information Week points out that small- and medium-sized businesses in the U.S. lag in disaster recovery readiness. 


Let us know  how you like the weekly round up.
