small business tips

Got you some sweet small business tips, brah!

Hey, happy Monday! Welcome to another installment of What to Read this Week. This week, I’m going to focus on articles that will help small businesses.

Free List Building Mega Book

Last week I told you about a massive article that linked to over 100 articles on list building. Well, this week, I’ve found you a massive guide on the subject. The Definitive Guide to List Building is incredible and covers just about everything you can think of on the subject. The best part is you can download it for free to read on your Kindle or tablet. That’s what I did.

Social Media Tips for Small Business

Want to know how to handle social media in 2015? Read Guy Kawasaki’s Social Media Insights for Small Businesses. Here’s a great tip from the article:

Assuming you have a great product or service, the most effective social media strategy is to establish a presence as a sector expert that creates and curates valuable content. By establishing a reputation for expertise, a small business gains credibility and endears itself to its followers. Hopefully, this will lead to more business.

Getting Blog Traffic

Does your blog need more traffic to drive conversions? Of course it does! I haven’t seen but one or two small businesses that didn’t need help. Lisa Burben over at Online Super Ninja has some great idea in her article The A – Z Of 26 Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Blog. Here is just one of them:

Kingged – Kingged is a new community of bloggers that truly drives bloggers to your blog. It seems to grow daily and has been around less than a year.

Some Off-Topic Fun

Last week, I offered to feature those who left comments on the last What to Read this Week Post. Here are the winners:

Chris Eirschele clued us in on her new book:

“I am proud of my new book – The Kid-Gardener’s Planting Book for Parents – that is targeted at adults who know children that have expressed an interest in gardening, but they themselves have rarely, if ever, grown plants. It started out in an electronic format in late 2014, and now has gone into paper in two versions: color and black & white. My first ebook was – Garden Truths From My Family’s Stories – which I self-published on Amazon. The Kid-Gardener’s Planting Book was the brainchild of myself and my editor/publisher, Victoria Nicks; Decoded Science self-published the ebook and the printed versions.”

Fran Spiegel gets a shoutout for her humorous travelogue – Ride the Rocket – Toronto Enabled. The book is about meeting a newly-discovered family in Toronto and exploring the city with them. She says:
When I explore a city I wear my disabled hat. I ask questions like: Can I get my wheelchair to all parts of that museum? What help is available for anyone who needs a little extra help?”Ride the Rocket is more than just a humorous travelogue. It’s about family. It’s about developing strong family ties and traditions, and laughing at some of the hilarious situations we found ourselves in because of the language differences. And, yes there are some big differences. English English is different to Canadian English!”
