Please welcome Jim Kukral, who has joined the line-up of small biz experts here at Small Business Trends.
I asked Jim to produce a series of videos that explain how and why to use social media sites — and do it specifically for Small Business Trends. The videos are designed for beginners — business people without a lot of time, who are looking for basic information on why and how to use Twitter in business.
I’ve known Jim for a few years now. He is very creative and active online. In addition to his personal brand site at JimKukral.com, he also runs the Online Video Toolkit, a free guide to creating professional looking video. He is also the creator of Twitterbacks, a site with free design templates for your Twitter page.
As if that were not enough, Jim invented Scratchback, a widget-based tip system that thousands of bloggers and webmasters use daily to earn a little money. Phew — he’s a busy guy!
To watch his first video post go to: How and Why To Use Twitter For Small Businesses
We’ll be rolling out additional videos over the next few weeks.
Many thanks, by the way, to Jim for working so hard to make these screencast videos as clear as possible. So many screencasts are fuzzy. Jim tested a variety of tools and procedures to come up with the best option for clarity.
PS, a big thank you to Tim Grahl of OutThinkGroup, our tech developer here at Small Business Trends, for converting the video file formats and making it so we could insert the video into our WordPress posts and pages with a single line of code. Awesome!
