LinkedIn has provided a facility to add posts from this blog to the news section of the B2B Centre LinkedIn group, using the RSS feed.
I don't know what would happen if we could add news items from LinkedIn to this blog - chaos?
There is a benefit of course. As with most of this web2.0, social media stuff it means that you can re-use content lots of times by pushing out via different channels. That makes it somewhat easier to make a splash on the internet and make people think that you are more active than you really are.
Blogs, twitters, RSS, social network status fields etc. etc. are usually indexed by search engines too. So if you add links then you start to increase your inbound link count.

As the credit crunch bites even harder and the economic climate worsens, we have launched a new suite of tools to help you save money, especially on telephone and meeting costs. The tools are highly interactive, providing simple, pragmatic advice, supplemented with easy-to-understand (we hope!) information and web resources. Each tool takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
The telephone cost tools focus on cost savings in 3 areas: changing your tariff or service provider; switching to a VOIP service; or using instant messaging as an alterative to voice calls.
The meeting cost tools help you save money by exploiting tele conferencing, video conferencing and web conferencing.
Please let us know how you get on.

We are hosting an event, together with AccountingWEB, to teach accountants new web skills to make them - and their clients - more profitable.
Many practitioners are missing out on new opportunities because they cannot keep up with all the latest business technologies such as search engine optimisation and e-commerce. This seminar gives them the chance to learn new online skills and discover systematic processes and tools to diagnose and improve website performance.
The seminar will help accountants not just to make their own online presence more effective, but also to open new fee opportunities by passing on their new web skills
The half day seminar (9:00 - 12:30) takes place on 15 July at the Burlington Hotel in Birmingham. It costs just £50 to attend, or is free if you stay for a short e-business workshop afterwards. For more information and bookings visit the National B2B Centre website. Lunch will be provided.
The seminar programme is based on findings from an AccountingWEB/National B2B Centre survey that identified a crucial skills gap. More than a fifth of practitioners said they would like to advise clients on ebusiness, but felt they lacked the appropriate knowledge to do so.

Members Networking returns on 10th July and for the first time comes to Telford in Shropshire.
This evening event will take place at the picturesque, Grade II listed Priorslee Hall (pictured right) at the University of Wolverhampton Telford campus. It is a chance to meet other business owners and employees of growing businesses, to discuss your issues and experiences - and of course recommend your business.

As usual there is the chance for three delegates to present a pitch to the group about their business. If you're interested in the opportunity send a sentence to us describing what you can offer to the network.
The event fits nicely around your working day taking place from 17:30 - 19:30.
You can book today at www.nb2bc.co.uk/book_event. Whether you're in Shropshire or not, this is a good chance for businesses to extend their contacts across the region so we hope to see you there.

The Business IT Guide’s new IT starter packs really do what they say on the tin. The IT starter pack for home businesses in particular is a brilliant step-by-step guide to using IT at home, for those who haven’t set up a business, or perhaps worked, from home before.
The guide picks out basic information which you may have not considered or thought about. You may read the guide and decide that setting up a business from home is not for you. By reading this guide you have cut your losses before starting, costing you nothing!!
Here’s a quick taster of what information it provides
- Cost’s involved in setting up a home business e.g. IT equipment you require, office furniture etc.
- The consideration of what broadband you will need and the options which are right for you.
- Virus software information and suggested suppliers.
- Information about IT theft and what software to consider
- E-mail set-up – suggested suppliers
- Suggestions on how to communicate effectively with colleagues at minimum effort using online collaborative tools.
The most important thing at the end of the guide is an Action Plan, read the information and most importantly TAKE ACTION if it’s right for you.
