The goal of our interview series is to provide rising entrepreneurs and current business owners with insight from successful industry-movers
Roswell, GA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Company.com, the social network for small business, recently announced the start of a new interview series focusing on entrepreneurship and business. The series, featuring some of today’s top entrepreneurs, will be published on Company Insight, a business-centric blog sponsored by Company.com.
“The goal of our interview series is to provide rising entrepreneurs and current business owners with insight from successful industry-movers,” Company.com Senior User Experience Strategist, Kristin Colier explained.
The first interview, released last week, featured Company.com CEO, Bill Wade. A forward-thinking entrepreneur, Wade discussed social networking for businesses and revealed different ways companies can use social networking platforms to expand their reach, uncover leads and promote internal online collaboration. Wade’s interview can be found on the Company Insight blog, titled “Social Networking for Business”.
In its second week, the Company Insight blog will present an interview with Entrepreneur, David Eckoff. Co-founder of Pickoff Sports, Eckoff specializes in developing and launching game-changing online consumer media businesses. And with a history as an advisor to some of the top media and technology companies, it came as no surprise that Eckoff was chosen for the second interview. In the article, Eckoff covers topics such as social media, entrepreneurship and his new Facebook app, Pickoff Sports.
His first bit of advice: think of social media as a cocktail party. “If you were at a cocktail party and introduced yourself, ‘Hi I’m David, I sell insurance. Let me tell you about some of our insurance products,’ how would most people respond?” Eckoff laughed. The article continues with an explanation of how to focus your social media messaging and tips for early-stage entrepreneurs.
