Yahoo! stock started to soar after CEO Marissa Mayer’s first earnings call yesterday. With millions of business owners using Yahoo! Small Business, millions of consumers using Flickr for a photo sharing service, and the announcement that mobile will be a top priority for Yahoo!, there’s plenty of evidence for a continued strong business presence and growth.
The CEO announced the core focus would focus on mobile and content, among other areas. I want to focus on the Yahoo! SMB Advisor section because small businesses are a key part of Google’s strategy and I have to believe it will be for Yahoo! going forward. The company has been building a small business content portal for many years, in addition to a strong website builder and tools to manage a website and marketing. Yahoo! is a trusted advisor for business owners.
