Well 2010 is well under way. Why am I talking about predictions in Feb?  LOL. There are a number of good articles that have been published I wanted to summarize them here. As a small business, you need to keep an eye on trends and patterns and see where and when you should get involved.

It still amazes me how some of my clients (and potential clients) run their business..ignoring the Internet or what is going on really is not a smart move.  (Ok I am off my soap box) Below are the articles I think provide a nice overview for these areas.  Happy reading!
