Exciting news! … Network Solutions is supporting a new blog dedicated to women in business. So the team is launching exactly that: a community blog called ‘Women In Business’. Women’s experience will drive conversation here plus stories on success, failure, leadership, economic trends & strategic decisions, entrepreneurship, and more.
Week in Review Segment
Last week’s highlight: Talking about the “If You Build It, Will They Come?” event, with a focus on using different tools for different tasks.
Last week on Solutions Are Power – post: 2009 Predictions Revisited: 4 metrics tools for social media (and competing with Steve!)
Touching base again on our Solutions Out Loud ‘Predictions Show’, I wanted to share more about my one ‘double down’ prediction for 2009 i.e. metrics tools will increase this year. So in light of that forecast, I shared a few measurement services and tools that could help small business measure data & results for their social media campaigns.

Business Tips Segment
Business Tip: Keeping a topic slushpile — have a reserve of things you can blog about, that you can reach into when you find a topical hook, or need something to write about.
