Business Building on a Shoestring Budget

Business owners should never tire of fresh resources to stay creative, be abreast of market trends, and ultimately grow revenue.  Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) are open to all small business owners seeking training on a myriad of topics.  This organization’s mission, “The Small Business Development Centers of the Northern California SBDC Network help individuals manage the growth of their businesses. Our sole focus is on helping you improve your bottom line.  Even better, these resources are at no cost or a small fee depending on the service utilized.

Yesterday I attended a “gratis” seminar session hosted by my local library.  During this session a group of approximately 50 business owners came together to Grow Business with Email and Social Media.  This session offered an intense four hours of market trends, tips, and tools to move business branding further.  The speaker for the day, David Mitroff of Piedmont Avenue Consulting offered great statistics and realistic ways business owners could utilize social media to build their brands.  

After this session I was armed with additional resources and new contacts.  A thought David shared that stuck with me was simply, “Do something!”  Many business owners don’t take the time to research and build strategic marketing plans that will make social media work for them.

How do you stay up on the latest business trends for your business?  Have you benefited from the resources your local SBDC offers?

Enjoy your weekend!

Hello, dear readers! While the vast majority of internet users are as lovely as yourselves, sometimes things can go a little sideways. I've created these guidelines for interacting with this space and keeping it a joy to come back to again and again. :-)

Please note that all of the written content and photos found on this site are created by yours truly (unless otherwise noted) and should never be repurposed or used without expressed permission. Please feel free to contact me here, if you have any questions.

AFFILIATE LINKS:

It's true: Efficacy Plus contains the occasional affiliate link. This means that I may get a teeny, tiny commission on the sales of products linked to throughout the site. These commissions help to keep this site up and running. Please know that I will never write about or endorse something that I wouldn't use myself.

SPONSORS:

On occasion, you'll notice sponsor ads in the sidebar of Efficacy Plus. These folks have paid a small amount for ad placement and are called out once a month in posts dedicated to my lovely supporters. That said, I rarely post sponsored content. Should you come across sponsored content, you will notice that I have added a full disclaimer. Rest assured, I will never write about a product or service that I wouldn't use myself.
