Twitter Chat July 9: How Running a Business Has Changed

It’s  that time again … for another chat on Twitter.

The topic is how things have changed over the past decade in running a business  — changes both good and not so good — and what they mean to you.  Specifically we will talk about such topics as:

  • how starting a business today is different
  • what you can do to take advantage of the positive changes  — and overcome the challenges
  • how social media has evolved, and what are the hottest social media venues today
  • the latest small business trends and how to take advantage of them

Join us on Twitter on Monday, July 9th from 7:00 to 8:00 pm Eastern (New York time).  This chat is hosted by BlackBerry (@BlackBerry4Biz). Guest of honor is Ramon Ray (@RamonRay), Editor and Technology Evangelist at SmallBizTechnology, along with yours truly, Anita Campbell (@Smallbiztrends).

Small biz peeps on a Twitter chat!

BlackBerry is the title sponsor for the Small Business Influencer Awards (nominations open through July 15th), and we’ll also be talking about who influences you and why.

The neat thing about Twitter chat is that they’re not just about attending and listening.  It’s really about YOU!  We want to hear from you.  So come prepared to chat and share information and network and have a great time with others.  The details:

    Anita: I look forward to the Twitter chat! I am interested to hear about your and Ramon Ray’s take on how running businesses have changed. A wild guess: Will you discuss the mobile trend?! 😉 I will add my $0.02 to the chat.

    Btw: Cute twitter birds! 🙂

      Hi Martin, I look forward to your participation!

      I thought the birds looked like they were “chatting” and networking, so that image seemed apt for a Twitter chat!

        Anita: It is great with the development of the tech that you could participate in an online chat in an easy way. I get positive flashbacks from the IRC days! 😉

        Talking about chatting birds, what is your take on Twitter’s new bird? Would it fit as an example in your book, Visual Marketing?

  2. Hi Anita, this will be an interesting chat and I’m looking forward to it. I just shared this on Google+ and I’ll be sure to get the word out on Twitter and Facebook too. Thanks!
