If you have a small business, you need to take some time to get involved in community activities. Support a local non-profit or civic group. If you support your community, your community will support you and your business.
This year, the Jacksonville Jaguars are asking fans, “Are You In?”
And the excitement is building for the new Jaguars season.
You can join Jaxson de Ville, members of the Downtown Council of the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce, and your friends and neighbors from around the community for the Annual Painting of the Jacksonville Jaguar Paw Prints, on Saturday, August 11, 2012.
The excitement starts at 8:00 AM on Bay Street. Free parking in the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce parking lot.
Last year, over 200 people showed up to be part of this Great Jaguars Pre-Season event.
Refreshments of Martin’s Coffee, orange juice, cold water, bagels, and doughnuts will be provided.
Once the group gets started, the painting goes quickly, and 263 Paws later, there will be an After Party at Mark’s on Bay Street.
Get more information and sign up for this Great, Pre-Season Event, by visiting the Painting of the Jacksonville Jaguar Paw Prints event on Facebook.
Our Thanks to Bonnie Arnold of Bonnie’s Floral Designs for her help for the community and the Heads Up on this year’s event.

A blog can be a part of your social media program, a way to reach out and begin communicating with your web site visitors.
Your small business blog post can share something interesting, helpful, believable, and sometimes even something funny.
Pick a topic for your blog that you can relate to your small business. Your blog topic should be something you know about, or you will have to do research just to find subjects to blog about. For example, if your business installs gutters, consider blogging about home improvements.
Do some research on the Internet.
- Find out which small business blogs / bloggers are rated most popular for your blog topic.
- Read some popular blog posts.
- If you can add helpful information to the discussion, leave a comment and a link to your web site. (It is considered bad manners to just leave a comment like, “Nice article.” or “Very informative.”, followed by your name and web site link.)
Your goal should be to make new posts on your small business blog on a regular schedule, for example two to three times each week. Regular posting also adds new content to your web site, which both visitors and search engines like to see.
What do you think ? Do you have any other ideas to share ?
