Small Business Health Insurance/ Small Business Development Centers/Social Media

There was an article in the LA Times yesterday saying that a report done by the Commonwealth Fund found that 49% of small business workers were offered health insurance by their employers. This was down from 58% in 2003. Small business in this report was define as under 100 employees

It also said that health premiums had gone up 154% over the last decade.

Think there may be a correlation here.

I am pleased to report that we now have 15 Associations supporting the Small Business Development Centers around the state. I am meeting with a major financial institution mid month and plan to bring the support letters to the meeting. I am looking for Associations and small businesses to sign on to the support letter. Let me know if you would agree to sign on.

We hear a lot about Social Media, What social Media Outlets do you use? Which are most effective? Do you get much business from it? Any hints on how small businesses can most effectively use Social Media? What is best training source you have found to help you develop a social media presence

If you are interested in the results of this survey let me know and after I tabulate them I will send them to you.
