Why LinkedIn is Good For Business

 

 

Description: http://i2.cmail2.com/ei/r/31/9AE/F87/151152/csimport/linkedin-a_1.jpgWith social networks like Facebook and Twitter on the rise, businesses must be able to utilize them to their advantage. One social network, LinkedIn, offers unique benefits since it is specifically targeted toward professionals and businesses.

Among the many social networks on the World Wide Web today, one stands out from the pack: LinkedIn. It stands out because it is one of the few (if there are any like it to begin with) that uses the principle behind social networking but adapts it to suit business and professional purposes.

If regular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter can help a business, LinkedIn can do so even more since it is specifically targeted for businesses and professionals. With LinkedIn, you make contacts that are more relevant to your line of work minus the clutter, noise, and nonsense compared to the more social feedback, comments, and discussions you are inevitably going to have from content you put out on Facebook and Twitter.

Another advantage to LinkedIn is that you are more likely to connect with people and businesses that help you move forward be it additional staff, suppliers, or clients. The site’s recommendation feature and referrals from other contacts will help you find what you are looking for faster. Also, you are able to better connect to people who are in your own industry or are doing similar things, allowing you to better assess what else you can do to give your business an added edge.

Using LinkedIn is a definite advantage, regardless of what business you are in. If you are interested in knowing more, please don’t hesitate to contact us so we can sit down with you and talk about various custom LinkedIn strategies that meet your specific needs.

Is Your Online Banking Safe?

 

Description: http://i3.cmail2.com/ei/r/31/9AE/F87/151152/csimport/banking-online-a_2.jpgWith more and more businesses using online banking for its convenience and ease, more and more hackers and cyber-thieves are also making it their mission to infiltrate and manipulate these transactions for their benefit. More than ever, it is important for businesses to ensure that they have the proper security protocols in place to prevent cyber-theft.

Online banking is a tool that many businesses utilize because of the ease, efficiency, and convenience it offers. Especially when it comes to small and medium-sized businesses, online banking is a great way to manage and track finances for day-to-day operations.

3 different ways to backup your data

 

Description: https://i6.createsend1.com/ei/r/1C/778/42E/145921/csimport/bcp_may30_c_5.jpgComputers are the backbone to almost every company. We use them to conduct business and for storage of data among other things. If something were to happen to the computers, a devastating virus for example, you could risk losing your whole business if you haven’t backed up your data. To prevent this, you should be doing so.

 

Here are the three main types of backup you can utilize in your company.

Rule of Thumb

 

When purchasing items online, be smart on which credit card to use.  For starters, choose one that has a very good fraud protection and secondly, which is just as important, chose one that has a low credit limit.  We recommend using a card that has no more than a $300-$500 limit and designate this card as your online credit card.  If for some reason you experience fraud, the hardship is very limited and it will have a small impact on your day-to-day life.

NEWS:  Outlook.com snares 1M sign-ups in first 6 hours

 

Description: Hotmail More than 1 million people had registered with the new Outlook.com email service on opening day, Microsoft said yesterday.

 

The company announced the milestone in a tweet posted about six hours after Outlook.com went live. "One million people have signed up for a new, modern email experience [at Outlook.com]," the firm said Tuesday afternoon.

 

Microsoft launched a preview of the consumer online email service around 9 a.m. PT yesterday.

The 1 million represents 0.3% of the 324 million who used Hotmail in June, according to Web measurement firm comScore. While some of the former number may have been new to Microsoft's email, the bulk was likely already in the Redmond, Wash. company’s fold.
