Facebook for Business: The Blog Squad Interviews Mari Smith

With sixty-seven million active users, Facebook has significant implications for business owners, marketers, and entrepreneurs. This highly successful online social networking platform continues to grow at a rate of 250,000 per day. That is serious growth!

Not only that, more than HALF the active users come back DAILY. And, people spend an average of 20 minutes on Facebook per DAY.

If you’re in business for yourself, whether as a solo professional or small business owner, you must familiarize yourself what Facebook can do for your business.

But, there’s a right and wrong way to use Facebook to strategically grow your business. You cannot effectively use “old school” marketing techniques on social networking Websites. It’s people first, business second.

Nor can you afford to dismiss Facebook as frivolous or “just for kids.”

So, how do you get around the inordinate amount of time it can take to (a) learn the platform’s most useful features, (b) field incoming friend requests from people you don’t know (and maybe you don’t want to know!), and (c) manage all the other extraneous activity flying at you at warp speed?

I’m going to share the answers to these questions and more on a live interview with The Blog Squad? – Denise Wakeman and Patsi Krakoff.

Save the date: Monday, March 10, 2008 at 2:00pm PT / 5:00pm ET.
