BBC Friday 9 May 2014 – Promote, Promote, Promote!

Home of the BBC

In that tradition, faithful BBC Regular Alice David has offered to develop a member referral list of BBC Regulars: a public and easily accessible database for having ready-at-hand contact and basic business information for referring one another. This database would also be the basis for keeping up to date the BBC Website’s Member Listing, with contact info and links to member websites, email addresses, etc.

This BBC Friday, we’re doing a roundtable discussion of how best to implement and utilize a “BBC Regulars” contact database.

Calling all available BBC Regulars, we can use your input on this exciting opportunity to enhance the BBC Community. If you’re unable to make it tomorrow, 9 May 2014, please feel free to share your ideas in an email to Dave Kragen ([email protected]) and Alice David ([email protected]) before 7:30 AM Friday.

BBC on Facebook? Should? Maybe? Shouldmaybe?

Be there, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business-wise!

 So, invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
