Small Business Risking Embarrassment on Live Ustream Show: Demonstrates the Power of Social Media
April 29, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsTOMBALL, TX. April 29, 2009 - "During this tough economy those businesses that stand out and leverage the power of social media will come out on top."
So says Jennifer Haubein of Websites2Grow.com. It is clear there is power within social media and it can be used for small businesses. Websites 2 Grow is an example of one small business which is taking social media by the horns and seeing what happens.
Jennifer Haubein, owner of Websites 2 Grow.com, is giving away a free website to a lucky business owner. Jennifer is going to build the winner's website LIVE on her Ustream show, www.Websites2Grow.tv.
"Yes, I realize this could fail miserably and I'm really putting my product and myself out on the line for the world to see. But if you're not standing out in your marketing you're standing still." she says.
Through the power of twitter, blogging, and Facebook Jennifer hopes to generate a buzz about her contest "Get Your Business Online".
"Social media really gives small business owners a chance to compete with larger corporations who have huge advertising budgets," Jennifer reveals.
Never before would a business be able to launch a new product without spending any money on advertising. So while Websites 2 Grow is taking a risk with their contest and building the site LIVE on Ustream, Jennifer sees it as a risk worth taking.
She is excited this contest will help so many small business owners take their businesses online during this difficult economy.
The grand prize winner will receive free advertising on the Websites 2 Grow Ustream show and a free website for life.
"Hopefully this will give a lucky small business owner the jump start they need to take their business to the next level," Jennifer explains.
Details of the "Get Your Business Online" contest are available at www.LetYourWebsiteWork.com.
