Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 5, 2008
A new social network, by the name of Sta.rtUp.biz, opened its doors up to the millions of small businesses in the United States and around the world this past week. Instead of going to MySpace to scour through teenagers and goth queens, the casual business owner can now have a home among his peers. Sta.rtUp.biz is a small business social network where networking and resources intersect. The big twist here is that the forum, which most communities have, comes with three experts covering each major area of small business. A corporate lawyer is there to answer any legal question. The "Search Guru" guides your website up the Google rankings with the free search engine optimization, and the veteran serial entrepreneur acts as your mentor on all business management and strategy.
The business benefits of social networking websites have become a standard marketing practice of most companies. From Mom and Pop to Fortune 500, the owners and sales teams are building relationships on LinkedIn and Facebook in order to open the doors to decision makers. Most small businesses are already benefitting from local chapters of entrepreneurs and chambers of commerce. Sta.rtUp.biz combines the practices and benefits of both with a little internet flare.
The resources are another gem on this social network's crown. Whether you are a serial entrepreneur or a budding webmaster with a dream, there are certain magazines that are religiously read each month. Sta.rtUp.biz has the daily articles from the big 7 (Inc, BusinessWeek, FSB, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, Forbes, and Fortune) running off of their home page. In addition to that, they have also created an extensive business video library, which they have entitled the "Video Hall of Fame." From Zig Ziglar to Tony Robbins, you can find the videos that every small business needs for inspiration, motivation, or management.
