Twitter Link Roundup #73 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross Kimbarovsky | February 10th, 2011

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The image to the left is one of many amazing photos from the recent snow blizzard that swept across the U.S. More images are in the Other section below.

  • Under the Small Business/Entrepreneurship/Startups/Leadership vein it would be super cool to see real life examples of how web-based entrepreneurs with limited cash are growing their business by getting meaningful traffic and new clients/customers.

  • The social media links would be great for anyone that needs to start learning a bit more about the whole social media world. They’re also a good refresher course for the rest of us.

    May I ask if thr’s any motive to bloggers make posts like this? With a summary of the week? does it increase gloogle’s indexing?
    Btw, nice blog, loved your posts!

  • Hi Danielle,

    I already share these links (actually, even more) on Twitter every week and this is a nice way to provide a summary that I can later more easily reference if I’m looking for something and that other people might benefit from. We don’t worry about Google indexing when we create content – good content is indexed well (generally). We focus on providing useful information … and the rest takes care of itself.

  • Wow !! really nice blog. It will be very useful for me. So, thanks for sharing this post.
