Minorities; Social Networking and Marketing

Minorities; Social Networking and Marketing

Social Networking/Marketing is booming for minority small businesses and minority
entrepreneurialism is on the rise because of the integration of technology. Blogging
content is important in business and market planning to establish credibility and a
presence online. Technology, an ever developing tool, important for business contacts,
building business relationships, creating collaborations, expands the reach of business
cards, email addresses, and cell numbers.

Minorities need to understand the time is now for business ownership to explore business
options on social networks. It does not take a technology degree, or a marketing degree
(learning the basics is important) it’s as simple as gaining a basic understanding
of using networking tools to expand beyond a handshake.
