If you haven’t had a chance yet, check out BizSugar’s Video & Image Gallery, a sweet new video content page where members can share their own small business videos or clips from anywhere on the Web with just a few clicks of the mouse.
This week you can find contributions from some of our most popular BizSugar members. For example:
- Bernd Geropp warns us not to behave like Darth Vader when managing our employees. Create an atmosphere of fear and you’ll soon have employees hiding things from you and loosing the morale they need to succeed. If an employee has failed to perform on a given project, you must decide whether choosing them for that role was a correct one.
- Stephanie Ward of Firefly Coaching discusses the dangers of making assumptions and how this practice can cost you business. The only way to find out what a client or customer really thinks about your your service or business is to ask them. If a customer hasn’t responded to your e-mail, don’t assume they’re not interested. Follow up and learn the real story.
- Chris Hamilton of Sales Tip a Day interviews author and social media ROI expert Lon Safko on the importance of relying on your analytics. Businesses need to get in the habit of figuring out where the traffic on their Website is coming from so they can determine what works and what doesn’t. Find out where you’re getting your biggest social media ROI.
- Conrad Flynn of Concur New Media makes some interesting new media and tech predictions that could have big implications for small businesses moving on into 2013…if they turn out to be correct, that is. Among Flynn’s predictions is a large scale reevaluation of the value of social media marketing, the comeback of the Blackberry as the premier mobile business tool, and the boom in entrepreneurism especially among very small mom and pop businesses.
