Microsoft Small Business Offerings with Social Media: Low Cost Solution for Business Growth!
Are you an entrepreneur or have a small/midsize business? Come and let me demonstrate some of the incredible free tools that Microsoft offers and how to couple them with social media to drive revenue! Leveraging free Microsoft offerings, businesses merely need an internet connection to become fully functional. Large portions, if not all, of your core business can be managed online. Using cloud computing in this manner eliminates the IT infrastructure challenges that most small businesses are ill-prepared to address. Further, these offerings are now even more exciting as Microsoft Web Applications (i.e. online Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote) are available.
