SUNY Canton SBDC Joins Nationwide ‘Start Your Business’ Social Media Campaign to Help New Companies

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

America's SBDC - New YorkThe SUNY Canton Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is partnering with its national affiliates to help would-be entrepreneurs through a six-week social media campaign.

America’s SBDC and small business expert Rhonda Abrams launched the Start-Up Campaign on Monday, March 17. Through social media outlets Twitter and Facebook, the campaign will provide entrepreneurs with information, advice, and resources they need to get started with their new businesses.

Local efforts by the New York SBDC, including SUNY Canton’s SBDC, will support entrepreneurs participating in the national campaign by offering no cost one-on-one consulting and startup trainings.

James King, NY SBDC state director said, “Social media has become such an important factor in today’s business climate that campaigns such as this are a natural extension of the services provided by the SBDC.”

The Six-Week Start-Up Campaign was inspired by the recently released third edition of Abrams’ bestselling book, Six-Week Start-Up. This edition includes dozens of free startup resources as well as step-by-step guidance to start a business in just six weeks.

“SBDCs are the best-kept secret weapon for small businesses,” Abrams said, referring to her own experience as a former SBDC client. “I know how valuable their expertise is and it’s free. SBDCs continue to make a huge economic impact in this country every year – they really are on the front lines helping entrepreneurs create jobs and access desperately-needed capital to start and grow.”

Throughout the six-week period, anyone who hopes to start, run, or grow a business receives daily guidance, worksheets, and links to free resources. Through Twitter and Facebook, they’ll be encouraged to tell their own story and become an inspiration to others.
