THUNDER BAY – Business Now – Unless you have an unlimited budget, keeping up with technology can be difficult. However the price to let changing technology leave you behind is far greater. Online in only a few years, the changes have been simply incredible.
Think of it, five years ago, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube were brand new. No one knew about social media. The idea that one could at the click of a mouse share with thousands of people across the vast expanse of Northern Ontario and Canada let alone the world was still in the experimental stage, at best.
Moving forward with technology is a key in The Emerging Thunder Bay Region. Right now in Thunder Bay alone there are over 70,000 Facebook accounts with the City of Thunder Bay. Twitter, while increasingly popular does not have the same kind of reach yet, but it is growing.
Many of the newest innovations online can help make a real difference. Here is a way to help you to make a difference with your business in the region.
