Business Owners may want to set up three types of groups for each of the Group's Functions:
1) Public Group
2) Private Group
3) One-on-One Group
4) Super Group

Managing four different groups seems to be much, but in order to ensure your information is secured properly from prying eyes or for timing of the information this structure is crucial for success:

1) Public Group for Small Business

For Small Businesses this group is your public group, it is the group that anyone on the MiTu Community Service or on the internet can find and join, think of it as your yellow pages calling card. You will have many people join your group that are interested in what products or services you have to offer, or may be they are just looking to see what you have to offer. Depending on your network and how many public facing people you want you can keep this group open to anyone who joins, or lock it down by requiring people to submit a request for you to approve them. If your wanting only people that have an understanding of your business joining you can ask that they answer questions to get into the group. Additionally, it should be noted that this group will be the final step in publishing content to the public regarding your Business Activities. It can also be a staging area to assess potential new customers that you might want to have join your private group.

2) Private Group for Small Business

For Small Businesses this group is your private group, where only those people that are part of your main base of customers would reside. These should be people that you see often and work with often to meet their needs. They are your repeat customers so to say. You want to keep them close and make sure you are the first person they think of when they need your product or service.

This group of people will be interested in working with you more closely and are willing to pay for a "subscription" in your company. Maybe you have services you provide for a $1, $5 or $10 per month, or there is a discount depending on the level of subscription. In the end, these customers are willing to pay to be part of your efforts to communicate and work with them on the MiTu Community Service. See the Subscription Promotion Policies for more information.

3) One-on-One Group for Small Business

For a Small Businesses this group is your One-on-One Group, where only special customers or small groups of customers come to work with you on a special project or work with you as part of a service. These groups can be created and deleted at will and can be part of your service contract as you provide the end customer the level of service they want and expect to receive. Given this One-on-One group could be created with the intention of the customer paying the monthly fee using the private group type or you as an owner use the super group type to create the group that would be a one-on-one group where you would pay the monthly fee to keep the group active. You are in control and depending on the relationship with your customer you can utilize the social networking technologies in a secure private exchange.

4) Super Group for Small Business

This group is your super group, where other businesses that have their own customers in other areas meet to review what business practices are working for their business and what is not working. There will be discussions on strategy and tactics necessary to achieve the required results within the community for your business.  This group also allows special subscribers that might have some special expertise but do not have a MiTu Community account or group to attach to the super group.  These people you, as a Group owner, would pay to assist in developing ideas for your business that you can then take to your private group, one-on-one groups and public group.

Think of it as a flow, the strategy and objectives are established at the Super Group, the small business owners then take the learning from the Super Group and work with the Private groups to determine some of the details on how the ideas will actually function in service to their customers and finally the last step is to push the content out to the one-on-one groups and the public group in such a manner as to attract new customers as well as receive additional feedback on what is working and what is not working.

That is how you use the MiTu Service as a Small Business Group Owner!
