Social Media in the Real (Small Business) World

We write a lot about social media and social marketing at SmartBiz, but sometimes I worry that it's too removed from reality -- and also WAY too much work for the payoff for most small businesses. Well check out this story from fellow small biz site Duct Tape Marketing. It tells the story of Jason Brown, 23 year old co-founder of Brown Lures. Yep, fishing lures. According to the site: Brown credits his blog with changing the way people find him, he created a podcast that gives him great "fishing stories" and loyalty from guides up and down the Gulf coast, he uses RSS and content tagging to automatically produce fresh blog content, and email marketing to blow his competition away at trade shows. Said Brown: "We have been running waiting lists for products for about a year now, and no one has any clue how we are doing it without spending big advertising money. I love this stuff . . ." There's a nice podcast on the Duct Tape Marketing site with Jason...check it out there.

Data Protection: A Broad and Vital Task

Perhaps nothing is more important to an organization than data protection. According to Michael Parker, the group manager for product marketing in Symantec's Data Management Group, data protection cuts a wide path: It includes backing up and restoring discreet pieces of data in a timely fashion—and doing the same for the underlying IT systems. In this podcast, Parker and SmartBiz Editorial Director Carl Weinschenk discuss this complex sector, which touches on just about everything an organization does. The bottom line is simple: Small businesses must offer robust data protection or risk being left behind.
