A list of rules that need to be considered when building a business online – especially when using social media such as Pinterest, Facebook, and Foursquare.
Blog Marketing Tip: Optimizing Your Keywords

Winning in small business with social media
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, MySpace, Squidoo, the list goes on and on. Social media is still hot and people will tell you that if you are not in on social media your business will suffer. It may seem like everyone has a Facebook fan page these days and you may be feeling left out. Before you start diving in and shelling out the cash with an “expert” or buy a “system” that will “do all the work for you” there are some key actions you should do first to ensure you come out a winner in the social media arena.
