It’s been a busy week at GS Business Resources, but I’ve still come across some excellent information on the internet that I want to share. Take a look:
Anatomy of a Successful Small Business Blog is a great article on how small businesses can benefit from a blog and lots of tips to help you find topics and craft the post. I’ve bookmarked this to refer back to often.
What is the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com? Watch “Julia Child” in this hysterical video to learn more! And then read the rest of the post for more details.
FYI – I have a more positive view of WordPress.com than in the video and post. It was a great way for me to get a blog/website for my business going without having the expense (however minimal) and worry of hosting when I started last spring. I am moving over to WordPress.org because I want to take the next step and have more flexibility on my site. I know this is not the best way to go for every business, but for some it can be a great option.
I keep trying to tell clients and potential clients about the things they could begin doing online to connect with their current and potential customers. Often I feel like I’m talking to myself, so I think I’ll begin refering them to Chris Brogan’s excellent post. By the way, how many of these are you doing today? Which one could you add?
Redoing your website? As I mentioned, I’m in the process of moving my site and blog from WordPress.com to WordPress.org and while most of it will remain the same, these are some great questions from Seth Godin for me to keep in mind as I redo and update.
That’s my list for this week. What articles/blog posts have you found that you took note of? Please share them in the comments!
