Is Your Small Business a Social Biz?

A Social Biz is a small business that makes relationships the most important part of their business and marketing.

Are You a Social Biz?

Your small business is a Social Biz if you:

  • Make it easy for people to find you and connect with you.
  • Create easy (and enjoyable) ways for people to communicate with you (and your people).
  • Actively and consistently stay in touch with people who are customers, other business owners, prospective customers, and members of your social networks.
  • Set up systems that serve your customers and troubleshoot and change systems that might be more convenient for you but get in your customers€™ way.
  • Go out of your way to help people and offer solutions to their problems.
  • Think about new and better ways to grow a community of loyal, repeat customers who recommend your business to others.
  • Make engaging with your networks a daily marketing practice. Take charge and step over any technology barriers (or phobias J ) getting in the way of using the Internet and social media daily to be more visible, find-able and engaging with your networks — because you need to go where THEY are; not just where you are comfortable.
