John Jantsch at Duct Tape Marketing put together short “snack size” bits of advice about small business marketing for 2009. All of the advice is from folks who are active on Twitter, which is currently the rage in social media sites.
The advice is snack size because Twitter only allows messages to be 140 characters in length (about 2 short sentences). So we all had to limit our advice to 140 characters.
Each person was asked to finish this sentence: “2009 will be the year for small businesses to . . .”
My favorite response was by Guy Kawasaki, who said: “Stop believing that Wall Street and investment bankers are any smarter than they are.” In other words, rely on yourself. Good advice.
But there’s lots of advice from quite a range of people — from Seth Godin to copyrwriter Bob Bly to bo Burlingham the Editor of Inc Magazine.
Check it out and add your snack size bit of advice in the comments over there: Small Business Marketing Experts for 2009.
