We’ve all heard those comments that sound something like, “…You know size doesn’t matter” or “You better believe size REALLY matters”. When it comes to the size of your blog, “How big is it?” Blogging produces results.

There are only two reasons to attend a trade show – to see and to be seen. It’s commonplace to attend trade shows and walk around all day and get the free bags, brochures, business cards and things that blink. Vendors are there to promote their newest product or service while others go there to collect intelligence on their competitors. If you attended a national trade show that had about 5,000 exhibitors, you could expect to have somewhere around 150 – 250 visitors per day at a booth. It would be very difficult to make that many sales calls are in a day. Before your company decides to be an exhibitor at a trade show...
