SBA offers free one-hour webinar on how to start using social media in business

So when the US Small Business Administration starts offering free webinars on how to use social media in your business, you gotta wonder. Is anybody out there not using Facebook, YouTube, Twitter or Pinterest?

We'll assume most of you who haven't are just a bit busy. Or you're inclined to wait for the next big thing.

OK, but still. The offer is free. Why not give it a try?

The opportunity starts next Wednesday, April 24, when the US SBA and W20 Group will launch a five-topic  webnar to give owners a chance to assess how to use social media.

It's listed as an Introduction to Social Media: Helping You Get Started. It starts at 10 a.m. Pacific time on the 24th.

You have to register at this link.: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6526746452209580800.  

In future webinars, the topics will include blogging, content for Facebook, using Twitter, and using location-based marketing.

SBA launches site to help small business plug into Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act takes effect for many small businesses over the next two years.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) on Monday started a website to help small businesses understand the set of choices they face.

It's www.sba.gov/healthcare.

It includes online tools to gather up information provided by agenices that will be responsible for implementing the law, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The act specifies a set of choices that affect how business owners deal with premiums and access to insurance plans.  The new site breaks down some of the act's provisions for businesses in different sizes — such as, self-employed, fewer than 25 employees, fewer than 50 employees and more than 50 employees.
