Success in Blogs and Business

In this blog post, “Successful Twitterers, Bloggers and Small Business Owners are just Extroverted Over-Achievers“, the author writes about how 95% of blogs fail, 60% of new Twitter users fail to come back, and the likelihood of a business start-up not being around in five years. Well, I have beaten the odds (I’d like to think this blog is not a failure!) on the first two items and Hickman County Economic & Community Development Association can help local businesses win on the last one. Whether it is just using the website or making an appointment for individual consultation, information can help your business succeed and give you something to really ‘tweet’ about.
