“We are on track before the end of the year to achieve a quarter million members.” Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends LLC
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) April 4, 2011
BizSugar, the small business social media news site, has achieved a new milestone, with the number of registered community members now at 175,000 users, with 95,000 weekly newsletter subscribers.
BizSugar is a business-to-business resource dedicated solely to the small business community. On the site, small business owners, managers and entrepreneurs can share news, blog posts, videos, podcasts and other useful content. By doing so they can highlight their thought leadership, while bringing visibility to their businesses and their online content. Others who are searching for tips and information to start a business or operate their existing businesses more effectively can search through the content shared by others for valuable insights.
BizSugar helps anyone in the business community navigate successfully through the challenges, obstacles and issues they face each day. And the best part is that it’s completely free.
BizSugar was launched in 2007 and subsequently acquired by Small Business Trends, LLC in the summer of 2009. Since then, its popularity and usage has grown.
“The entire BizSugar team, including our Moderators and Advisory Board, are thrilled with the response by the small business community and entrepreneurs. The rapid growth rate of 500% in under 2 years is proof that small businesses want social media platforms dedicated to their interests and needs," said Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends LLC. “We are on track before the end of the year to achieve a quarter million members.”
Shawn Hessinger, Community Manager, adds, "One remarkable benefit of BizSugar is that it is a two-way street. You share AND learn. BizSugar helps highlight the hard work of small business leaders and staff. At the same time, it is a learning tool where one can find important business resources and advice provided by other community members who own or operate small businesses. And there is a good feeling of community and active networking among members of the site. Relationships are built and reinforced everyday on the site."
