Small Business News Weekly Roundup: 6/24/11

no comments yet

In this week’s small business news roundup, we’ll talk about handling a double dip recession, why you should be flexible, finding funding, easy marketing campaigns, SEO blogging tips, Twitter tools, and finally, a survey about who is starting small businesses and why — and we’d love to hear your comments on that one in particular, so let’s get moving!

  • Is Flexibility Good for Your Small Business?: This article at Small Business Trends uses the fitness philosophy of Jack LaLanne to make the point that you should be tweaking your business from time to time. There are also internal links to other helpful articles as well.
  • 5 Creative Ways to Fund Your Business: Steve Strauss at BNET gives a sneak peek of his new book Get Your Business Funded: Creative Methods for Getting the Money You Need with these five ideas.
  • 8 Twitter Scheduling Tools to Change Your Life: Don’t you just love dramatic headlines like this? Seriously though, if you’re on Twitter (and if you’re not, why not?!), you must take advantage of scheduled tweeting — this way your followers can get a consistent flow of information from you (instead of 30 tweets in a row when you happen to have the time to tweet) *and* you can maintain your social media presence even when taking time off. Great article.
  • Laid Off? Start a Business: The Wall Street Journal reports on a survey that found 15% of business owners started their business because they had been laid off; if you’ve started a business in the past few years, we’d be curious to know what your motivation was, so please let us know in the comments!
