  • Microsoft Small Business Offerings with Social Media: Low Cost Solution for Business Growth!
    Speaker(s): Lisa Palmer Are you an entrepreneur or have a small/midsize business? Come and let me demonstrate some of the incredible free tools that Microsoft offers and how to couple them with social media to drive revenue! Leveraging free Microsoft offerings, businesses merely need an internet connection to become fully functional. Large portions, if not all, of your core business can be managed online. Using cloud computing in this manner eliminates the IT infrastructure challenges that most small businesses are ill-prepared to address. Further, these offerings are now even more exciting as Microsoft Web Applications (i.e. online Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote) are available.
    Why do you care about social media?
    * Facebook - 124M Unique Visitors / +202% Y/Y Growth
    * YouTube - 84M Unique Visitors / +34% Y/Y Growth
    * Twitter - 26M Unique Visitors / +660% Y/Y Growth
    * LinkedIn - 15M Unique Visitors / +85% Y/Y Growth
    * Number 1 activity on the web: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIFYPQjYhv8
    * This is amazing when compared with 304M Population of the United States!
    How can you access all of these online customers?
    Microsoft Office Live Small Business
    * Free hosted websites for small businesses (500 MB storage - I have a site with 55+ pages that is only using 5MB!)
