I had a great time at last night’s Small Business Influencer Awards Event in New York City. It was a nice opportunity to meet others who champion the small business community. From accountants to social media mavens, journalists to CEOs, the room was full of lively people, stories and camaraderie. (Ramon Ray, host and producer (among other things) was especially inspiring and energetic!)
I encourage you to look through the list of other Top 100 Champions – you may find new customers, partners or vendors – or maybe just a great mentor. I can personally recommend, from experience, Constant Contact (for email newsletters), AMEX Open (community and resources), Dropbox (for storage and backup), Hootsuite (for social media management like a pro!), Vistaprint (great printed collateral), and many of the individual Pros like Aliza Sherman, Brian Moran and Ted Murphy who give their time, insights, advice and counsel to many small business entrepreneurs daily.
I’m honored to be a part of such a supportive community, and proud to be a small business owner myself (for 15 years and counting)! If I, or my agency, can help you in any way – business plans, digital content, marketing/pr, sales and marketing materials, training services, social media management and training, etc. – please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
In the meantime, support small businesses in your area!
