By: Richard Brewer-Hay
Congratulations to John Lawson, an eBay Ink Social Media Seller, for being named a Small Business Influencer Champion for 2011 by Small Business Trends and Smallbiztechnology.com!
John “ColderICE” Lawson, eBay PowerSeller and President of 3rd Power Outlet, Inc. and the founder of business industry blog, was named a Small Business Influencer Champion for 2011.
Lawson was one of 520 business leaders nominated for the honor. From those, Small Business Trends and Smallbiztechnology.com selected 100 to be celebrated on Sept. 13 at an award ceremony gala in New York City.
Lawson is a very active seller on eBay, speaks globally to audience on entrepreneurship, social media and technology, and has also starred in an American Express Open TV commercial. Starting his eBay business from the kitchen table, Lawson now makes numerous sales over the internet. He also created ColderICE a portal for e-commerce education and The Ecommerce Group on Facebook where business owners go to discuss what is important to them. Both the group and the blog are instructive sites for small businesses to learn about eCommerce.
“The Small Business Influencer Initiative was launched to honor people, companies and organizations that have made a worthwhile contribution to North American small businesses” states Anita Campbell, one of the founders of the event. “We hear so much about high-powered CEOs and Fortune 500 companies in the media today, but it is the small businesses that drive the economy.” Ramon Ray, co-founder of the Small Business Influencers added, “These people and organizations have all accomplished something that influences the small business world in a meaningful way. They are truly a vital part of the small business community.”
The Small Business Influencer 2011 Awards recognizes individuals, companies, and organizations for meaningful and lasting impact on the North American small business market. The awards are based on the nominee’s products, information, or services being used by, or critical to, many small businesses, or by their work being a thought leader.
Join me in sending warm wishes to John.
