The Software Business Network is a new online community focused on supporting the go-to-market and business development needs of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) in our Intel® Software Partner Program, as well as individual developers writing and selling applications for the Intel platform.
We'll be starting off with 4 posts "Social Media Starter Kit" blog posts that provide the "basics" or "must-knows" about using some of the most popular social networking means to promote your software company and software applications (blogging, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook). In the upcoming weeks -- in addition to continuing topics on social media and digital marketing-- check back for more expert tips in software sales and lead generation, geo expansion, and other marketing topics. As always, feel free to leave us a comment in our forum or as a comment on our blogs.
