  • 9. WITH CHALLENGES COMES OPPORTUNITIES
    • Emerging media offers inexpensive but effective ways to interact with potential customers:
    • “ AS ENTREPRENEURS, we have to either adopt — or adapt to — new methods
    • of advertising to reach potential clients and customers. With so many of them connected to the internet with their mobile phones and/or laptop computers, it's no wonder that digital media advertising (DMA) is the new hot button for any seasoned or newbie entrepreneur.”
    • Robert Shimonski @ Entrepreneur.com 7/08
    • “ Businesses of all types and sizes are focusing on the power of bloggers as opinion shapers. But harnessing that power is particularly important for small-business owners who don't have the money to create name recognition with big marketing campaigns. By connecting with the right blogs, small businesses can generate buzz around their products and services and increase sales dramatically.”
