PRLog - Dec. 19, 2011 - IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2011 – According to a recent survey by Webs, a leading do-it-yourself website creation company, while 68 percent of small business owners use Facebook as their primary social media marketing tool, most are not achieving the results they desire. The National Business Experts (TNBE), a networking group preparing to launch a new chapter in Orange County, is seeking to change that – one entrepreneur at a time.

By attending the Orange County Business Experts launch on January 10, 2012 at the Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport, area business owners will learn how they can use cutting-edge social media strategies, innovative education and invaluable community networking to achieve extraordinary results. Unlike most networking groups, The National Business Experts has proven strategies designed to dramatically increase the exposure of its members’ businesses.
TNBE is expanding to Orange County after successful launches in several other markets. According to Gia Heller, Founder and President of TNBE, the group offers new and innovative ways for people to succeed in this challenging economy. “What we are bringing them is the exact strategy that took me from food stamps to fortune on Facebook and has already helped propel the businesses of hundreds of our members,” said Heller.
“I’m extremely impressed with the way TNBE empowers small business owners, enabling them to harness the full potential of networking and social media,” said Maria Simone, a renowned speaker, trainer, author and business consultant, who will lead the Orange County Business Experts. Heller stated that she partnered with Simone for the Orange County market “because of her incredible abilities as a visionary leader, motivator and organizer.”
Participants at the upcoming Orange County Business Experts (OCBE) Grand Opening will be treated to a special presentation by Simon Mainwaring, the New York Times best-selling author of We First, award-winning branding expert for Nike, Motorola and Toyota, and blogger for Forbes, Mashable and Fast Company. According to Mainwaring, “In today’s business environment, associating and collaborating with people who are experts in their respective fields, and leveraging the power of those relationships is crucial for success. That’s why being part of a network like The National Business Experts is so important.”
The kickoff event for The Orange County Business Experts will be held on January 10, 2012 at the Hilton Hotel/Orange County Airport located at 18800 MacArthur Blvd., Irvine, California 92612. Registration and networking will begin at 6:00 pm, and the session will start at 7:00 pm. In order to get a complimentary ticket to the event, participants must register at: www.TnbeOrangeCounty.eventbrite.com.
