Now, in this week’s small business news roundup, we’ll discuss why now is the best time ever for small businesses, how to vet potential employees via social media, and how to hire a marketing firm for your small business.

Let’s go!

First two other great roundups:

  • This Week in Small Business: It’s Small Business Week!: The New York Times shares links to articles on the kick-off of Small Business Week, President Obama’s small business round table and new tax incentives, anxiety over “Taxmageddon,” lessons learned about hiring employees, and much more.

And now the rest:

  • Ask an Expert: Now is the best time ever for small business: USA Today’s expert Steve Strauss insists that now is “without a doubt, the greatest time ever–and I mean ever in the entire course of human history–to start, own, run and grow a small business.” And Strauss insists he’s not exaggerating.
  • Pointers on Hiring a Marketing Firm for Your Small Business: Business Insider shares tips for the criteria you should consider when hiring a marketing firm for your small business. For instance, you may want to consider the type of firm, what services the firm offers and/or excels at, and whether its location matters to you. Great advice.

As always, you can keep up with the latest small business news by following @LegalZoom on Twitter and LegalZoom on Facebook.
