This great infographic shares small business news about how social media is really being adopted by small business and even how much success small businesses report seeing after using the tools. As expected, the number of small to medium sized businesses using these services remains low, and so do the percentage of users who say use of the tools has resulted in increased sales. Though the jury is still out, there are businesses that have claimed substantial response to social media marketing, and it seems logical that number will continue to grow over time. Read More

How many other similar experiences like this are there out there? Does Holiday Inn offer comparable accommodations? Certainly not. So the price of a stay at a traditional hotel compared to one in this incredible tree house is really unimportant. Can your products and services make your competitors unimportant? They can if they're incredible. Read More
