Welcome to the SMALL BIZ Social Media Revolution!

…and welcome to our new BizEdge Blog. We will be advising and reporting on the small business advantage plays that are emerging through Internet marketing and social media.

Whether or not you choose at this time to utilize Merchant Card Services from 1st National Processing and the Merchant Services Partnership we invite you to subscribe to our new blog, we promise to keep it up-to-date and informative.

At 1st National Processing, we are beginning to embrace social media as a powerful marketing and branding tool – and, we’ve yet to think of one business that couldn’t benefit from some sort of social media component in their marketing and advertising mix.

However, there are still skeptics. One of the most common questions that we get from them is, “do you think it’s a fad?”

Watch this short exciting video – it paints a powerful picture of the rapid growth and pervasiveness of social media. The video is a stealth promo of last year’s best seller Socionomics by Eric Qualman and it is must reading for any serious business owner… but at least watch the 4-minute video, guaranteed to expand your horizons.

We believe that it’s here to stay…at least until the next paradigm shift occurs.  It’s completely changing the way businesses engage with their customers and is not slowing down.

And stay tuned as we research and share ways for small business owners to catch this new wave of business potential!

Viva La Revolución!
