Social Media for Small Business - A Professional Learning Community
Introduction
A professional learning community, centered around the profitable and simplified use of social media and social networks as an augmentation to your core business. 

The Dialing 8 Project works from a model that finds your business blog as the core of a social media plan and eight spokes that branch out and feed in.

The eight spokes are (with your blog or site as hub):
  •  Social Platforms
  •  Video & Audio
  •  Images
  •  Search & Mobile
  •  Resource Sharing
  •  Networks
  •  Bio/About/Contact pages
  •  Product Offerings
New tools will continue to come at a frenzied pace. By keeping things organized into these eight sections, we can make smarter decisions as to which tools to use and why.

The site is intended for small businesses, rural business, independent contractors, and solopreneurs. While we have a large members-only section, we also have a few valuable public access areas as well.

You can become a member for only a month, a quarter, or a full year (best value, best success)

This article covers the concerns and tells you how you can protect yourself and use Pinterest worry free.
