We’re going to have a great discussion and some awesome networking at our upcoming Twitter Chat this Thursday, February 13, 2014.  We hope you’ll join us.  Everyone is welcome!

We will be discussing how to brand your business and create marketing materials — all on a budget.   Small Business Trends will be hosting the chat, and we’ve invited a representative from Brother to be on hand, too, to share expert pointers.  We also want to hear your tips and experiences when it comes to marketing on a budget, as well as your questions.  We will be covering such topics as how to create a consistent brand identity; creative ideas for “leave behind” materials; and how to develop a terrific presence for your business.

The occasion is to also celebrate the Brother CreativeCenter Back to Business Contest over on our sister site, BizSugar. This is the second year we’ve held this contest with Brother as the sponsor.   We’ll tell you what that’s all about, too.

We’ll have giveaways to make the chat even more fun.

To join in, all you do is log on to Twitter at the appointed time.

We’ll be using the hashtag #BrotherBackToBiz.  That means, to participate in the chat you simply include that hashtag somewhere in your tweets during the hour.  To follow what other participants are saying and to network with them, just use the search box on Twitter for that hashtag during the hour.

Then bring your best ideas and join in!  Oh, and be sure to follow the Twitter handles for @SmallBizTrends and @BrotherOffice.


When:  Thursday, February 13, 2014, from 2 pm to 3 pm ET (New York time zone)

Where:  On

Who:  All the cool entrepreneurs and business people – like you

Why:  Because it’s fun and educational. Giveaways, too!

    Anita: I am a “cool” entrepreneur and business minded individual, so I will join the chat! 😉

  2. i can’t wait to jump on your Tweetchat on Twitter. about marketing on a budget. I am a small business owner and hope to add value and ideas to this Tweetchat!

  3. I am going to try my best to join this Twitter chat! Sounds like it is right down my alley!

    Some feedback: It would be nice if the hashtag were a bit shorter. With Twitter’s 140 character limit (I’ve participated in quite a few Twitter Chats myself) it is hard to get entire points across at times and every extra character counts!! #broback2biz might have been a bit more character-friendly. 😉

    Looking forward to it!

  4. This sounds like a great conversation! I’m excited to join in and be a part of it Thursday. I’m currently working part time as a marketing assistant and studying the field so this is right up my alley! [email protected]

  5. Thanks for the announcement of this event. Looking forward to the education, excitement, and experience.
