AMI-Partners will host the first annual Small and Medium Business Media Marketing Awards on November 11th at the Harvard Club in New York. The event will showcase the success that information communication and technology providers have had in the social media marketplace.

"Since we’ve announced these awards over the summer, our clients have been very excited by the prospect of having their SMB social media efforts recognized,” said Jacqueline Atkinson, AMI’s Social Media Research Manager. “Social media has become one of the hottest topics among ICT marketing and sales professionals. The potential to use general social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to acquire and retain SMB customers has generated enormous buzz in the industry."

AMI made news for small business when it released a report regarding cloud computing. The study found that one in five small businesses were not taking advantage of cloud computing applications such as Software as a Service.
