Insights from the Experts: Technology Tips for Small Business, a new resource offered in the HP Total Care portfolio, features influential insiders discussing how people can green, mobilize and grow their small businesses.

“The SMB market is the backbone of our nation and it continues to grow faster than any other sector,” said Fred Bullock, vice president, marketing, Personal Systems Group – Americas, HP. “HP is firmly committed to the SMB segment and this series is another way for us to help deliver on our Total Care promise to offer SMBs resources to manage, grow and protect their businesses.”

Hosted by technology expert Jim Louderback, chief executive officer of Revision3, the five-part series features the following segments:

  • “Green Your Business” by Anita Campbell, editor in chief of Small Business Trends, an award-winning, comprehensive online publication for small business owners, entrepreneurs and the people who interact with them.
