To get you started using these resources to increase your business’s success, here are a few online solutions worth checking out.

  • iMeet: Did you know that the majority of communication from human to human is nonverbal?

This service simply requires an Internet connection, and is compatible with smartphones and tablets.
  • WordPress: WordPress is no longer just a place for individuals to post their blogs; it has grown into a site where businesses can host professional looking websites and regularly updated content. With a plethora of plug-ins, themes, and widgets, this site allows immense customization so you can get the right website for your business without paying big money.
  • Evernote: Do you ever feel you simply have too many thoughts swirling around in your head? Capture them in writing or in a voice memo, as well as important website and images, with Evernote.

Financial Advice for Small Business Owners

As a small business owner, you are faced with unique challenges that large corporations do not have to worry about. Gathered are tips from successful small business owners that want to watch your company grow as much as you do:

  • It is important that you access capital now. Accessing capital can help you expand your business if you are interested in launching new products or services, hiring new employees, or even buying another company. You can also refinance any old debt at the current lower interest rates. Some day-to-day business obligations may require you to have the liquidity of a line of credit (LOC) and accessing capital early on will allow you to do this.
  • You may want to consider hiring a consultant instead of a part-time employee to conduct one duty. Consultants have the ability to cross-pollinate your organization by bringing outside perspective, knowledge, and advice.
  • Rather than slowly planning a strategic start-up, have a lean start-up. Launch a basic form of your concept or product and gain interest and feedback right from the get go, before launching in a more competitive market.
