The SLOW guide to small business | Nett

The SLOW guide to small business | Nett | My articles | Scoop.it

Should you take the plunge and set up a Google+ Page for your business? If you do, will you be posting a billboard in what will soon become a desert? I am by no means a prophet of what works and what doesn’t on the Web (I’m still trying to find someone willing to buy my shares in MySpace), but on the face of it Google+ has a lot going for it...

Reasons to be cheerful | Nett | My articles | Scoop.it
