New And Useful Online Resources For Small Businesses And Entrepreneurs

New Resources For Entrepreneurs

Google has just launched a new resource for businesses and entrepreneurs. According to Mashable, "Google took the wraps off “Google for Entrepreneurs,” a microsite that brings together information about Google’s programs and partnerships for startups and entrepreneurs."

I believe this is a good thing for Google because this program gets Googlels signature products used by entrepreneurs earlier on in their business life-cycle. It is sort of the equivalent of McDonalds hooking kids on their food by offering them a Happy Meal while they are young.

Crowdfunding For Entrepreneurs And Small Business

Believe it or not, small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs in the US can already benefit from crowdfunding their business online. There is no need to wait for the Securities and Exchange Commission to write the rules on the Jobs Act as long as you are not offering equity in exchange for generating funds for your business.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a way of raising funds specifically over the Internet via a rather large crowd of individuals. These might be friends, family or complete strangers.

There are some online tools available out there that let you raise funds online via crowdfunding but a new tool available specifically for businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs is www.crowdcusp.com

Earn By Establishing An Online Course

As a business owner or entrepreneur, have you ever thought of putting together a course that would teach someone a valuable new skill in entrepreneurship or business? That is possible with the site Udemy. There are a few sites like it but, Udemy offers a way for you to feature you and your knowledge in the business world as an online course. You may offer essentially any type of legal subject that you can think up. You can also either offer the course as free or paid depending on your needs.

      Welcome to Hub pages iig. We hope your stay here is as enjoyable as ours has been. The 20 months we have spent here has taught us a lot.

      This is just what we have been looking for. Most of our clients are new or newer to internet business and need all the help they can get. We already use Google apps for our website and find it a great tool which we don't know how we would live without.

      Udemy will be of value to those who are teaching what they already know. Either way this is a win/win situation for us. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge.
