    [Blog] Why your small business SHOULD care about social media
    This post originally ran on Vistaprint’s Small Business Blog. We’ve talked a lot about engagement on Facebook with best practices for using Facebook for your small business. While we think there was some great content in there (hopefully, you agree), we have gotten some feedback asking if investing time on social media sites (including Facebook ) is worth it for micro and small business owners. This is a very valid question, so we wanted to answer it with this post. million Twitter users ( Media Bistro ). They are the drivers that keep you in business.

    [Blog] Why Reachli is Ideal for Businesses Using Pinterest
    Pinterest has done wonders in particular for blogs and for websites who have taken interest in creating supporting pages and picking proper images. As with any site, the more exposure received the better it is for your brand, in particular organic exposure. Organic is content seen by people on the site and is numbers or views that are not inflated with fake or irrelevant accounts. With that said, it is not always easy depending on others to repin your pins and in some instances promoting pins can help further your reach. Cats and Bacon image via infographr].

    We suggest that to accurately present brands strength and influence on the web, objective web measures (versus the subjective ones suggested by IE) as search volume, blog and media citation, as well as social involvement measures should be incorporated. A new exciting Web Trend Map version was recently released by Information Architect. You can view the map on Flickr and a play with the zoomable version on zoomorama.com. Trendsetters were added to the map as well. Influencers have indeed become powerful web brands. Ranking brand’s strength is an important step for an initiative as this.

    [Blog] What Keeps The Chief Marketing Officer Awake At Night? - Part 2
    It is everything from their personal profiles (think about LinkedIn and Facebook) to what they''re thinking (look at blogs, Twitter , Pinterest and beyond). 'The Chief Marketing Officer must better understand how information is created, stored, shared and capitalized upon. There is a strange default position that most businesspeople (mostly marketers) take when they don''t understand why something is happening in the business world. How could Facebook buy Instagram for close to a billion dollars? What was Yahoo thinking when they acquired Tumblr for nearly the same amount? Part 1 ).

Difficult situations present opportunities to dig deeper, peel that onion, and perhaps change and evolve to better meet the times. Enough about me, what do you think about me?

There is a reason that Facebook is going public. And while many are speculating as to the reasons by digging through the company's SEC filing , I think Facebook is going public because it needs to now compensate those who have built it to become the impressive empire that it truly is.
