On January 29th you are invited to join us for a live taping of the Small Business Big Ideas Show and be part of the studio audience for a moderated interactive panel discussion on: “How to use Social Media to Get Business, Without it being a huge Time Suck”!
For 9 years the Small Business Big Ideas Show has been airing hot content, with today’s best guests, informative interviews and we do it with a little fun mixed in too. This past summer a new idea was born and after a few meetings and a few late nights, the team at the Small Business Big Ideas Show decided it was time to bring the show live to a studio audience!
Now on January 29th, we’re taking the show on the road!
Join us for the kick off of the Small Business Quarterlies (Where Radio Meets Business Networking).
We are taking the radio show to the beautiful Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts as we are hosting a live taping of the show, featuring a dynamic panel discussion how to use Social Media to get Business and not have it be a Big Time Suck!
Plus we’re going to add a healthy dose of audience participation, networking, entertainment, mixing and mingling too on January 29th!
Join our esteemed panel of Julie Cole RBC’s Woman Entrepreneur of the year award winner from Mabel’s Labels, Ian Marshall from Targeting Profits and Marc Petitpas the “Brandfather” from The Printing House.
Plus warm up acts from the very funny Jacquie Daigle-Hermans and the fabulous Tony Esteves…
When and where it’s all happening:
It’s all happening on Tuesday January 29th from 6:30-9:00 pm at the beautiful Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts…10268 Yonge St. Richmond Hill, ON

Have you ever written an article and had it go viral? Most of us are lucky – and pleased – when we see our efforts have reached more people than anticipated. Graduate Nicholas Dureault must be VERY proud. His article (below) went viral and brought in more than ten thousand views to his website … in one day. Perhaps we should all give this one a careful read! And afterward, make sure you see Nicholas’ website at http://www.eim-solution.com/ as well as all his social media sites!
Anatomy of Content Creation
By now many of us are familiar with how to create great content for content marketing to our readers but is it actually pulling in the amount of visitors you expected, especially with the work that goes into creating great articles is – well… a lot!?
Among the many factors that go into sourcing and crafting great articles, there are many other dynamics that go into making the content searchable and significant for the search engines to determine what, where and how display your written content and rank in the search engines; but for the purposes of this article when we look at how “good” content is created, we’ll be taking a look from the technical perspective and help you find that things aren’t as easy as just creating a readable and engaging article (though it should be that simple).
Think Conversions! You want to give your readers the right clues off the bat to enhance maximum conversion potential, but perhaps just as important as the right cues for actual readers are the cues we leave for the search engines and these tips below are designed to do just that.
***This is a somewhat lengthy article (A SUPER POST) but well worth the read, it will help teach and guide you on how to properly create articles that will help you dominate in the search engines***

Social Media Can Help!
Do you tense up whenever you hear the words “social media”? Or maybe it’s not that bad and you just need some encouraging thoughts. We’re putting together an interactive Success Event that you’ll want to attend. Even if you consider yourself a whiz in the area, you’re more than welcome to pop by!
Things change fast in this market and we’re here to help. Multiple Social Media Gurus are going to come together to give their personal tips on ways you can improve your business with things like Facebook, Twitter and even YouTube. More details will follow but be prepared for breakout rooms, laptops, smartphones and clocks. Rather than have a lecture, we’re aiming to have you learn and have fun at the same time. We’ll come together for a Q&A before the evening is over. And of course there will be an Impact Award to hand out!
When: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 from 6pm-8pm
Where: Essential Communications – 101 Dundas Street West, Suite 201, Whitby
Guest Speakers: Various Gurus To Be Confirmed – update: Leslie Hughes from PUNCH!media as well as Cathy Rankin and Lesley Kelz from Burst will be there!
6:00 – 6:15: General Networking and Impact Award
6:15 – 7:25: Social Media Breakout Sessions
7:25 – 7:40: Q&A in Classroom
Time permitting: Formal Networking
Please RSVP to Bev by return email or at 905-668-4141 if you plan on attending. If you are bringing guests please let Bev know when you respond. You are welcome to show off your business cards and/or brochures on tables for all to see – your option!
