Fantastic suggestions, Gary. Starting a blog is one to the best free leveraged ways to get the word out about your business. You'll attract quality customers and may also attract partners to help you promote.

The thing about blogging is that most small businesses don't understand the concept and benefit, which is sad. I think that there should be some sort of blogging 101 course that small business owners should be required to take. It'll help them really see how going online can save them a ton of money and get even more exposure. :)

Thanks for sharing your insights with us, Gary.

Hi Ti,

You're right, most business owners are told blogging is a terrific way to market their business but almost none of them are successful at it. I think most people are impatient and blogging requires a lot of patience if you want to see the rewards. Yes, a good course for small business owners would be great! Thanks Ti!
