Editor's Comments 

Barry Scott -Digest Editor

Do you ever get stuck trying to figure out which keywords will work or what Ad Heading will attract a viewer? What about in the case that you have multiple services to offer and you want to know which one is likely the most attractive to the buyer?

This type of information are questions that market research will provide the answers to. Did you know you can do most of this yourself? By putting together a short survey you can ask friends and/or family to fill in the answers. You can do this formally with a physical questionnaire or informally by asking questions and you write down the answers.

The most important thing is to make sure you ask everyone the same questions and if you are asking them to do change the way you ask questions as they can be asked in a different way that may give you a different answer and therefore provide skewed results. You can this for keywords, Ad Headings, products, services etc...    

As always and feedback or questions are always welcome, just click on my name below

The Top 10 Tips to Starting a Business in This Economy

By Will Corrente
Small business consulting advice for entrepreneurs at all levels looking for success in this economy.

What do companies like GE, HP, Microsoft, CNN, Hyatt and Burger King have in common? They were all started in economic downturns by entrepreneurs whose passion, commitment, and ability to execute far out-shadowed the temporary economic obstacles. For the fearful, our current economic environment is an obstacle, for the bold, it is an opportunity.

For those bold entrepreneurs, here are 10 Tips to Starting a Business in This Economy:

1) Your Idea Must be Fresh and Innovative
Many entrepreneurs have made a fortune on a simple twist or new application on an existing product or service. Having a great idea is the first critical step of success.

2) Your Idea Must Compel the Customer to Spend
Customers are more cautious than ever with their purchasing dollar, knowing what makes your product or service irresistible is the key to success in a down economy.

3) You Must Have an Executable Plan with Clear Objectives
Writing a plan, doing research, and having a well thought out strategy along with realistic projections for revenues and expenses are crucial in an economy where every dollar counts.

4) You Must Be a Watch Dog on Costs and Expenses:
With access to capital scarce in a slow economy; it is more important than ever to cut costs to the bone and make every dollar of revenue count.

5) You Must Be Prepared to Sell:
Great sales people are made, not born. You must learn and apply the essential skills of selling your product or service to succeed and prosper.

6) Put Your Customer Ahead of Yourself:
Great entrepreneurs know that success is all about serving the customer. Keep your focus on meeting and exceeding the customer's needs, and you will not only stand out from the competition, but your customer will reward you for it.

7) Don't Go It Alone; Ask For Help:
People love to help others, you just need to ask them! The key to success in any economy is to seek the advice and counsel of experienced business persons in your niche or industry.

8) Use Leverage to Grow:
Successful entrepreneurs know that big success comes from leveraging their contacts, experiences, relationships and finances. Learning this critical skill is essential in a struggling economy.

9) Harness Technology and Social Media:
Pencil and paper entrepreneurship is dead, make sure you are familiar with the latest technology and social media platforms to speed your operational efficiencies, and drive marketing and sales results.

10) Never Give Up, Never Surrender:
Your ability to motivate yourself and your team is paramount in a tough economy. You must set the course, share the vision and kick it up a notch if you expect to survive and thrive in this economy.

 Become an Ecopreneur - Small Businesses Can Make a Big Difference

By Nicole J Rivera
When it comes to small businesses, many companies may have the desire to do right by the planet, but many times they feel they are not capable of doing so because it is far too big of a task.  This couldn't be further from the truth.  As a small business or even a large corporation, you can actually do big things to help the planet by barely doing anything at all.  Solar water heating, HVAC systems and wind turbines aside, here are a few simple tips to get you started toward a more sustainable business. 

First and foremost, reduce, reuse and recycle, are three terms your small business should live by if you are interested in becoming a more eco-friendly organization. 


  • Reduce: Reducing your amount of waste is a great way of helping the environment. Using a computer and switching from print or direct mailing to email and digital collateral can be a great way of reducing the amount of paper and ink you use.
  • Reuse: Instead of throwing things away, why not try to find other ways of utilizing them. For example, the handy note tablets that you write any and everything on. Rather than throwing out the table once all of the front pages are filled, use both sides of the paper.
  • Recycle: Many of the materials your company uses everyday are made out of material that can be recycled, but because business waste management services can be so expensive, many companies choose not to use them. If this is the case, try to network with other local businesses and purchase the service in conjunction with them. This way you will be splitting the costs between multiple companies and networking at the same time.


Once your company has the three R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) set in motion, the next step is to make an effort to convert to more environmentally friendly office supplies and practices.   Both large and small supply stores now carry many green, natural and organic products such as recyclable paper, CFL or LED light bulbs, natural base cleaners and low VOC paints, just to name a few. In addition to purchasing more eco-friendly products, analyze your current practices to see if you are making all efforts possible to reduce harm to the earth.  Turning off lights when no one is in the room, shutting down power strips at the end of the day and refilling ink cartridges instead of buying new ones are a few ways to get started. Think about these things on a large scale. When purchasing supplies and changing your attitude it may seem insignificant to your company at first, but the effects can be greatly rewarding in the long run.
You have started following the three R's, converted to eco-friendly office supplies and practices and you feel you are on your way to a more sustainable business. Finally, for all of the things you simply can't control, such as daily commute, business traveling, electricity consumption and more, you can offset their carbon footprint. Services such as Terrapass, Carbon Footprint and Carbon Fund have great tools to calculate your business' carbon emissions. Once calculated, they will offer you tailored solutions to aide your company in becoming carbon neutral. 
Running a green business is not only good for the environment, but it is also a benefit for your bottom line.  Whether your company's goal is to become a 100% sustainable business or to moderately practice environmental stewardship, taking action is the first step. In the end, doing your part to save the planet may also be saving your company some real green!
