Of those women who are online any amount of time, 53% read blogs, 37% post comments to blogs and 28% write or update blogs, according to the study."

  • Guides on how to use blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, “crowdsourcing” and other social media channels to cost-effectively reach and serve the “Connected Era;”
  • "Screencast” introductions to social-media tools like Technorati, Netvibes and WordPress;
  • A discussion board to spark conversation and idea sharing;
  • A best-practice forum that features a different SMB weekly;
  • SMB deals and news from Dell Small and Medium Business.

A great resource here for beginners to learn how to leverage social media as a low cost organic way to reach women in market car buyers.
