This past week: I read a lot about social media and small businesses, as usual, it is a topic that really interest me. As YWD is still a small business (with a big client list) I'm always looking to the new and current marketing trends; with the goal to maximize time an effort. A goal I'm sure we share with all SMBs, and with that in mind I've collected this list of tweets. These tweets are tips, advice and ideas on how to do better business online.
YWD Testimonial by Context Creative Andy Strote and Lionel Gadoury [ViDEO]
Andy and Lionel is one of the creative agencies that use YWD to quickly deploy websites for their clients. In addition to the websites they have launched using YWD, they also use YWD also for short term promotional campaigns. They have created a collection of landing pages for different successful marketing campaigns.
What do you think? -> Will LinkedIn Outlast Facebook?
Rachel Parker makes a good point. Would the commercialization of Facebook kill its current appeal? I have to admit of all the networks I work with, I prefer Facebook. Is the same for you?

Do you use Klout? I found myself in it-> 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Klout
I got an invitation to Klout and I was curious, so I open the account hooked up all my social networks and my score doubled in a couple of days. Now the question is: What is the value of Klout? A self patting on the back? Certainly not something to use in your hiring process.
We don't have incentives nor penalties, now I think we need both-> Small Business Payment Trends
We are all going through the same tough economic environment. Late payments are just a consequence of this financial uncertainty, is time to add incentives for prompt payments?
