Twitter Link Roundup #80 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross Kimbarovsky | March 31st, 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 above is a photo of Manarola, Italy – a small town in northern Italy. You’ll find more photos of colorful towns and cities in the Random Fun section below.
