Small Business Essentials

Imagine a world full of possibilities. Imagine rubbing shoulders with leaders and influencers in the same room. Stop for a minute and consider how you could benefit from their insights and, what’s more, present your ideas and discuss possibilities. This is what Social Media Week is all about. And it’s just started in London.

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology’s impact on business, society, and culture in general. In its 8th year, Social Media Week London is one of the main digital media conferences taking place in the capital in 2016.

Best in the business

The event brings together some of the industry’s leading brands and individuals at the intersection of entertainment, media, marketing and technology. The list of participants includes Google, BuzzFeed, National Geographic, The Economist, Forbes, Blue State Digital, General Assembly, Edelman, Ogilvy, and Hootsuite to name only a few. This event will also feature speakers in media, innovation, entertainment, finance, advertising, politics and more gathered to share insights and explore what’s possible in an increasingly connected world.

Interconnectedness = opportunities

As a small business or start-up this is the ideal platform to present ideas as well as discuss issues that either affect your business or may do so in the future. Yes, the possibilities are endless. For many entrepreneurs understanding the benefits of being one step ahead of the pack is a given. After all, this is how they grab opportunities and help shape the future. For example: is video content absolutely essential? Does it drive traffic on to your website? Or, how do you convert a traditional newspaper into a social media giant? These are all issues that entrepreneurs can translate into opportunities.

Small businesses

For small businesses struggling to find their feet in the social media world the discussion on the 13th of September holds promise. Speakers will focus on strategies for small businesses and startups, including advice on managing and growing communities on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
