Answering Questions – What's Next for SMBMSP

In an effort to answer many of the questions raised in conversations yesterday, I want to take this opportunity to clear up confusion and answer those questions.

We believe there is more that Social Media Breakfast MSP can do and we’ve got plans in motion to provide those additional services. Wondering what these plans and “additional services” are? Here’s an overview of what’s coming shortly.

SMBMSP Changes & Your Concerns

Hi folks, a quick note is in order about the upcoming SMBMSP at the Great Minnesota Get-Together, aka the Minnesota State Fair!

This is the first event we’re charging for, and while I know this seems like a sudden change, it is one that positions SMBMSP to better answer the needs of our community.

So far we’ve gotten really lucky in doing this because of our strong community and the support it gives in ideas and topics and connections. Continue reading
