Launching Biz Service: Need Your Help
As a result of frustration I and other entrepreneurs have experienced with the lack of small business coverage in my local media (Charlotte, NC), I decided to launch a video portal covering local small business events (grand openings, chamber events, educational seminars, interviews with local business leaders, etc). This will be a no-cost citizen-news service for local small business that can dramatically expand the audience for their events.
I am finalizing the website (click to view) and I would like to humbly ask for ideas from my talented pool of blog readers (that’s you). The videos you will see are placeholders until we are ready to lauch, at which time the real video content will be added. I am looking for the following input:
- What small business events might appeal to you? Don’t worry if you are not in Charlotte, most markets have similar event types.
- How to get media attention?
- Creative ways to market and promote the service
- Other thoughts you might have
I would like to heartedly thank you in advance for any pre-launch advice and input you might offer. Please submit your input as comments below.
