Last week, I was in San Francisco for a day to attend a Small Business event produced by HP. There, I met a handful of small business experts – including one Ramon Ray:
Ramon is not “just” a technology writer, but as a former small business technology consultant, he has years of hands on experience in building networks, installing software, upgrading computers and supporting the technology small businesses use on a daily basis. Ramon co-produced the Small Business Summit 2006 (sponsored by Intel, Microsoft, Intuit and other companies), Small Business Summit 2007 (sponsored by Symantec, Homestead.com, Intuit and other companies) and Taste of Technology @ Lunchtime (in partnership with Best Buy, Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and Microsoft).
Ramon has been following my efforts for years, but I had to dig a little deeper to discover more about his arena. Through that process, Ramon had a few questions for me – how to grow a site, how to expand an audience, how to double the amount of people who follow what you do. I didn’t have all the answers, but we certainly talked our way through a few interesting possibilities.
