Wix not only lets you create a stunning website, we also prioritize giving our very best business, design and marketing advice to all of our Blog readers. But we’re not the only ones taking our years of business development and sharing it with the world. Nowadays you can find an online expert giving out advice on just about everything. The challenge is making sure they are in fact the experienced professionals you hope they are. As a small business owner it is crucial to sift through the clutter and find trusted advice. We decided to do some of the searching for you, and in the process found some top dogs giving priceless tips and tricks.
Check out these excellent blogs for exceptional advice and models in blog creation itself.
Small Business Trends
Let’s start at the blog mecca for small business. No matter what line of work you are in, you will likely find literature here that matches your needs. SBT offers information on loans, customer service benchmarks, marketing tips, technology reviews and much more. Check out their resources section for starters and begin down the information rabbit hole.
Find out how and why to #hashtag and other fun social suggestions. Our own incredible social media team has used Hootsuite to track mentions and engage in Twitter conversations in the past. As small business owners you may not need their online monitoring systems but we certainly recommend reading what they have to say on issues of social media strategy. Their blog includes small business tips as well as case studies on larger marketing campaigns to learn from the greats. They also incorporate excellent webinars that are an added perk for readers.
The Blog of Tim Ferriss
If you haven’t read Tim Ferriss’s book “The 4 Hour Work Week”, we highly recommend it. Ferriss is a fabulous author with unique business advice. His blog posts include interviews with successes like Marc Ecko to his general musings on what makes someone successful. While we wouldn’t necessarily take web design cues from his blog, the content is interesting and he certainly has his finger on the pulse.
Damn I Wish I’d Thought of That
Great name, right? We just stumbled upon Andy Sernovitz’s blog and were pleased with this happy accident. He is an accomplished writer and is frequently published throughout major newspapers. His blog is a collection of his best articles, and this one stop shop is exactly what a small business owner needs. He has interesting ideas and solid marketing analysis all in an upbeat and easy to read package.
First, we love the Mightbytes layout and images. It is easy to navigate and that makes a big impression on us. They also categorize the blog in a thoughtful way that allows you to focus on your unique needs. Subjects include Content Strategy, Design and Sustainability. Here is a solid blog post (and a general Wix rule of thumb): Stop Writing Web Copy That Over Explains Everything.
We would be remiss not to mention that our own Wix Blog team works tirelessly to help small business owners improve their own web presence, marketing strategy, design skills and so much more. If you feel we’re missing any important subject matter, give us a holler in the comments section and we’ll get right on it.
