Do you ever wonder what it takes to get your small business written about in the USAToday Small Business Connection blog column? Jim Hopkins, the Editor, makes it easy on you. He says, "Please join my entrepreneurs panel!" You can fill out an online survey with some information about you and include your contact details. Then you become part of his small-business virtual advisory panel. Jim says it has nearly 1,500 members. Sounds to me like a great tip to possibly get media coverage for your company.
