Owners of small businesses are usually time-starved. They crave practical methods that have proven success. They want to get news-you-can-use tips quickly, anytime they have a spare moment. That’s what small business expert, Anita Campbell has discovered.
For example, Campbell provides
1. the owners of small businesses …
2. with practical methods to grow their businesses …
3. provided almost entirely in online formats that include an Internet radio interview show, calender of small business-related events, several web sites and blogs, newsletter, free subscriptions to others’ magazines and online forums with “over 21,700 small business folks from around the world who support and encourage each other as we grow our businesses.”
As you may have noticed, Campbell succeeds by choosing others’ best advice to share with her niche. Her expertise is in identifying the experts who will interest her clients and the ways the content will be most convenient for entrepreneurs to find and share. Plus she taps the collective intelligence by enabling entrepreneurs (and those who sell to them) to benefit by sharing advice in the forum, as blog comments and elsewhere. This all sounds obvious yet surprisingly few people get specific about these three steps to becoming the top-of-mind choice for their kind of clients (or supporters, members etc.)
