It’s the latest roundup of our Twitter Gurus series! In case you’ve forgotten, we already acquainted you with insightful influencers and experts from the project management industry as well as the world of productivity and time management. Our latest blog series instalment dealt with 7 Twitter leaders who will save your business any possible costly mistakes.
While we’re still on the topic of business… a lot of our clients are actually small businesses. That’s why we think it might be a good idea to focus on small biz Twitter personae this time.
Here they are, in their full glory as experts ready to spread some valuable knowledge!
#1 Richard Lorenzen @rlorenzen
Who: Many things at ones, but primarily CEO of Fifth Avenue Brands. Richard lives and breathes entrepreneurship and shares his insight in prestigious media such as the ever-classy Entrepreneur and Huffington Post.
Why: Many of his pieces of advice are invaluable for small businesses out there in the wild. Especially if we’re talking about PR (an area that, we have to say, too many business that are just starting out tend to underestimate). Take this article as a great example of Richard’s guidance.
#2 Matthew Toren @matthewtoren
Who: Matthew is a small business superhero, juggling between entrepreneurship, being an investor and serving as an inspirational influencer. He’s co-founded Young Entrepreneur, Biz Warriors and a myriad of other ventures.
Why: This guy is an information-filled gold mine for any small business owner heading on the entrepreneurial journey. As we’re particularly fond of cloud technology, we loved his piece on cloud-based unified communications for small enterprises.
#3 Sara Davidson @saradavidson
Who: Ladies are killing it in the small biz scene and Sara is a shining example of a successful entrepreneur. Meet Hello Fearless – Sara’s take on a business world led by unstoppable women whose dreams have absolutely no limits!
Why: Sara’s attitude is fantastic and inspirational. Period. What we particularly like are her interviews with successful female business owners. Lots of insights and personal stories to tune in to.
#4 Ivana Taylor @DIYMarketers
Who: Ivana is DIY to the bones and a significant marketing influencer when it comes to small businesses. A mastermind behind DIYMarketers, she always has something valuable to share with biz owners.
Why: We like her style and the fact she cuts to the chase and gives you actionable tips. Not only that, but she goes in-depth in many areas related to running a small enterprise (and businesses as a whole). Like her ‘How to break up with a bad customer’ article. Terrific.
#5 Ramon Ray @ramonray
Who: Ramon embodies what we mean whenever we think of the term ‘small business guru’. He’s a proven expert in all things enterprenurial and is willing to share his experience with biz owners.
Why: Two words. Smart Hustle. Ramon’s Smart Hustle magazine has tons of stuff you’ll do great to utilize and learn from – including interviews with leading professionals. Like, you know, Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec.
#6 Barry Moltz @barrymoltz
Who: Barry is a blend between a) an author, b) a consultant and c) a speaker, and he manages to do all of these flawlessly. Did we mention he’s also a radio talk host? His specialty seems to lie in getting all those stuck small businesses leave the quicksand they’re sinking in.
Why: Small businesses have it tough. They’re extremely prone to facing difficulties and lacking the power to counter them adequately. Barry’s book titled ‘How to Get Unstuck’ throws 25 ways to battle operational despondency and get back on track with your enterprise. Recommended!
#7 Practical Ecommerce @practicalecomm
Who: Practical Ecommerce is an all-in-one resource for all things ecommerce related. Chances are if you have an online shop or run your own digital business, this Twitter account will become a favorite of yours. Heaps of articles focused on ensuring your ecommerce engine runs smoothly.
Why: Online shops have been swarming the web, yet many fail to make it through. Running an ecommerce venture isn’t as easy as it seems and any entrepreneur can do with a little bit of guidance. Practical Ecommerce lends a hand with fantastic articles, such as this one, focused on product page layouts that simply work.
