Small Business Gets Social: SMBMSP #28 July 24, 2010

Deluxe Corporation invited Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul back to their glorious campus: (that’s what a real lawn looks like folks!) for #28:  Small Business Gets Social!  

Facebook, Twitter, Blogging are the foundation for Social Media tactics.  Metro IBA got mentioned at least twice for the superb work they do with small business.  Shareology also loved the “I Hate Coupons!” cry from retailers on the panel.  Newsletter and email blasts used in conjunction with social media worked well.  Some folks love Twitter, some love Facebook — figure out which works best with your customer base and go with it.  Zack Steven got props for his Twitter classes.  And finally, another illustration of show up where your audience is:  Julie Warner mentioned she’s had success with Craig’s List.  Her audience is there looking for appliance deals and Julie reminds them she has appliance deals!

Metro IBA:    Promoting locally owned, independent businesses in the Twin Cities

This morning’s gathering of Metro IBA at Warners’ Stellian on Nicollet in South Minneapolis brought together a great group, and Shareology was there! She was particularly impressed with the store setup; centrally located are 8 work stations. Store staffers are smack in the middle of product and customers:  how cool and smart is that? More from our networking morning:
