Florida SBDC at USF blog named Top 100 Business Blog by Feedspot

TAMPA (December 21, 2016) – The Florida SBDC at University of South Florida blog has been named to the 2016 Top 100 Small Business Blogs on the Web list, by Feedspot.

“We have worked hard over the past two years to create content that our small business clients need, in the form of expert articles, video segments and downloadable info graphics,” Stacey Pierce-Dadd, Marketing & Communications Officer at the Florida SBDC at USF, said. “We’re proud to be creating content that helps Tampa Bay entrepreneurs navigate the challenges that we assist clients with every day.”

The Florida SBDC at USF blog publishes an average of three posts per week, featuring tip articles for small business owners, as well as the success stories of clients in the 10-county Tampa Bay region, and local press releases. In-house professionally credentialed experts write all content, and occasionally the blog features vetted content from members of the Small Business Resource Network.

“We’re only able to provide this high-quality blog due to the expertise of our business consultants and some really high quality interns we have on staff from the University of South Florida,” Pierce-Dadd added. The Center currently employs two marketing interns from USF who assist with content creation.

The Center serves entrepreneurs in Desoto, Hardee, Hernando, Hillsborough, Highlands, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Manatee and Sarasota counties.

Feedspot is a modern RSS Reader platform that allows users to keep up with news and content from multiple websites, in one location. The Florida SBDC at USF ranked #84 on this year’s list of top small business blogs.
