Providence, RI (PRESS RELEASE – March 30, 2009) – BatchBlue Software, provider of the BatchBook social customer relationship manager (CRM) for small businesses and entrepreneurs, today announced an open invitation for all to join in the SBBuzz Twitter chats, which it hosts every Tuesday evening from 8:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET. Moderated by BatchBlue team members and currently with more than 2,000 followers, SBBuzz encourages dialogue between small business owners, techies, social media mavens and the folks who follow and learn from them.
The SBBuzz sessions follow an informal format of an open chat for the first hour. During the second hour a BatchBlue moderator directs questions to a guest tweeter and all are encouraged to do so as well. This week’s guest is Anita Campbell, Small Business Trends editor in chief and widely recognized small business expert, will discuss how to establish good relationships with press and bloggers during SBBuzz on Tuesday, March 31.
“Entrepreneurs are the type of businesspeople to get things done efficiently. SBBuzz has proven itself to be a valuable tool to help smaller organizations collect successful strategies, learn about helpful technologies and connect with one another,” said BatchBlue President Pamela O’Hara. “We believe the bigger the community, the better the conversation, and we encourage all to participate in the exchange. We created SBBuzz to provide a place for small business owners to swap smart dialogue on what’s working for them in the real world.”
Scott Blitstein founder of eSeMBe.com and frequent writer for WebWorkerDaily, acted as SBBuzz’s first guest moderator on March 17 leading the discussion on the topic, “How you choose your tech.” Asking questions such as “Where do you typically hear about new tech services and solutions?” Blitstein collected responses include one from @bradfordshimp, a frequent SBBuzz participant, who said “I love Emily Chang’s eHub to stay on top of web 2.0 stuff.”
“SBBuzz is another example of how Twitter is becoming a necessary tool to keep in your small biz arsenal, and a great way to connect with like-minded folks,” said Blitstein. “This is a simple yet clever way to use an emerging social media tool to strike up new business relationships.”
