The article “6 Ways Small Business Can Win With Facebook” [Social Media Examiner] does a great job highlighting how small businesses can learn from the way big businesses approach Facebook.

Here are the six ways to win with Facebook:

  1. Have a Plan and a Strategy
  2. Use Custom Tab Applications
  3. Emphasize Interaction
  4. Be Available
  5. Take Action
  6. Be Flexible

Android Apps for Business Professionals and Entrepreneurs:

After reading the article “15 Awesome Android Apps for Small Business” [SproutSocial.com], I learned about these great apps that you should check out on the Android Marketplace:

Cloud Print app

  1. Cloud Print – Need to print a document from your Android device? No problem. Use the free  app.

HP ePrint technology

NOTE:  If you want to print from ANY smartphone (including Android phones), I would recommend investing in a new HP wireless printer with ePrint technology.

With ePrint technology, you can send an e-mail to the Web-connected printer and attach a Microsoft Office file, PDF document, or photo from any smartphone, tablet or computer from practically anywhere.

To learn more about HP Web-connected printers with ePrint, check out their website.

2. Droid Scan Pro – scan documents on the go, or turn photos of notes into PDF documents.


3. PocketCloud Remote RDP/VNC – Connect your Android device to your Windows or Mac OS desktop computer, and remotely control and access the data on your desktop at anytime, from any place.

4. CamCard – With CamCard, you can scan business cards and save them directly to your contacts list, so you don’t have to type a thing.
