#MicroBizMattersDay Free Live Video Advice Session

by Editor on 4th January 2016

#MicroBizMattersDay Free Business Advice Session

Friday 8th January 2016 is designated as #MicroBizMattersDay. This is the second year that this important day for micro businesses has been held.  On the day hundreds of thousands of micro business owners – It is hoped it will be 1 million – will be giving 8 minutes (or more) of their time to help other micro business owners somewhere in the world. The three main areas of focus for #IGave8 minutes of action to help other micro-enterprise owners are:

#Customers

#Cashflow

#Confidence

This annual day of Recognition, Action and Learning helps achieve the aim of the Enterprise Rockers’ global community and movement that Tony Robinson OBE and Tina Boden launched with other businesses in January 2012; that aim is ‘to make life better for micro-enterprise owners everywhere’.

The brainchild of Tony Robinson OBE and Tina Boden as #MicroBizMattersDay has been designed to encourage other business owners and business experts to give 8 minutes of their day to helping, and encouraging and mentoring other micro business owners. Micro businesses, (who have 1-10 employees), are the backbone of the business community and make up 95% of all UK businesses. But this vital group have often been forgotten and really need help and advice if they are to survive and thrive.

Last year I participated and gifted 3 hours of my time to run a drop in business surgery, but felt it was a pity that I could not help more businesses. So this year I have decided to utilise my online marketing experience to leverage a free new online platform to open up my time to any micro business owner who can get online.

Free Live Video Advice and Discussion on Blab.im

I shall be using blab.im to run a free 2-hour advice and discussion session via live video streaming. Any business worldwide that wants to fully participate in the session and ask live questions just needs to register a free blab account.

Download my free guide to setting up an account and using www.blab.im. Blab is linked to Twitter and once you have set up your account you can watch and participate tweeting comments and questions live during the session.

Once a session is running the organiser can invite up to 3 other people to join them simultaneously in a ‘chair’ on screen and to participate in the live video discussion. Other people watching can comment or post questions live on Twitter. The host has full control and can swap other participants in and out of the other three chairs. So anyone who is a twitter user can benefit. But the best news of all is if the session host selects the options the whole session is recorded both as a sound file and as a video recording for future review. Even if you are unable to attend on the day I will be making the whole session available to listen to or watch later, free of charge!

If you just want to watch live or view the replay later just follow me on twitter on the day and follow the link. Here is the link to Subscribe to the Free Blab Session, look out for my messages regarding #MicroBizMattersDay on my Twitter account. I will be covering the three themes #Customers, #Cashflow and #Confidence.
