What can you expect from our blog during Small Business Week 2013?
1. Actionable Marketing Tips
We have nothing against marketing theories. Hell, we sat in quite a few classrooms to learn these theories. So while they serve as great background, we know you need actionable marketing tips to move your business forward. So this week, we’ll blog about real strategies and steps you can take today to market your business.
If you feel we’re not being real enough, call us on it. If you feel our actionable marketing strategies hit the mark, we’d love to hear from you too.
2. Local Branding Strategies
While having an online presence is important to your success as a small business owner, you can’t forget about your local market. In many cases, it’s much easier to land local clients than generate online sales. To celebrate National Small Business Week 2013, we’ll give you some suggestions on how to build your business presence in the Greater Cleveland area.

What’s the Word: As a small business, it’s our duty to give back to other entrepreneurs whenever possible. Whether you’re giving information, discounted services or trial products, it’s important that you do something to offer value to your market.
