Hosting a domain is a minimal investment to have a web presence and having a web presence should be a basic cost of doing business
Roswell, GA (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
Company.com is dedicated to helping businesses be found, connect, and grow. In keeping with their mission Company.com, the social network for business, recently interviewed Marna Friedman, organizer of The Social Launch, to gain her insights about social media and why businesses should attend this conference. The Social Launch Conference comes to Atlanta on November 16-17, 2012 and aims to help businesses understand how to leverage new technologies and social media to build communities and create opportunities. Based on The Lean Startup philosophy, topics that will be covered at the Atlanta conference include Startup Tips, Leveraging Social Media, Website Basics and Business and Legal matters.
Conference organizer and speaker, Marna Friedman, also the Principal at Mpressive Solutions, LLC, took some time last week to speak with the Company.com team. “We were very fortunate to connect with Marna before the conference,” said Kristin Colier, senior user experience strategist at Company.com. “The Social Launch Conference is packed with great tools for business owners and anyone interested engaging with customers and social marketing.”
Friedman explained that the social launch aspect of the conference is in “learning how to leverage social media and new technologies to help build a community--whether you’re a startup or a solopreneur or a growing business entity--so that you’re engaging your community and helping them understand what it is you have to offer and what they can do to help you refine that offering.” Having a web presence can help businesses do exactly that.
