On Sunday, President Obama kicked off National Small Business Week – an annual event that recognizes, empowers, and celebrates the hard working individuals across the country at the helm of America’s small businesses – with an official press release from the White House. And given our mission of helping local businesses and communities grow, it was a no-brainer for YP℠ to come onboard as a National Small Business Week sponsor again for the third year in a row.

Yesterday, as part of the week-long program of events, we hosted a live webinar entitled, “Cloud, Mobile, and Social: Great Apps and Services That Will Grow Your Business,” more than 1,000 current and aspiring small business owners joined from all corners of the country.

Small business experts, Ramon Ray and Gene Marks, were joined by YP’s own Jeff Biesman, Vice President of Customer Acquisition and Retention Marketing, to talk about some of the day-to-day challenges small business owners face as they work hard to grow and manage their customer base. Ramon and Gene started by discussing the cloud services, mobile apps, and social tools most useful to them when they launched their own businesses. From CRM and mobile payment systems to customer loyalty programs and social video platforms, the webinar covered a lot of ground and shared valuable insights on how to choose and leverage the right digital tools to grow a business.

The webinar was a big hit. If you missed it, you can watch it here on replay.

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that Ramon and Gene are also guest speakers at our recently launched Local Breakthrough Summit events happening in eight cities across the U.S. between now and the end of July. Register for the Local Breakthrough Summit near you today or check out our calendar of events for other YP events happening in your community.
