What marketing tool should you use to promote your growing business? Your first answer would probably by social media or email. That’s understandable considering that we are in the digital age today. Everywhere you look you will see the influence of technology. But this doesn’t mean that you should completely ignore traditional marketing. The good old traditional tools are still as effective today as they were in the past.

One great traditional tool you should never go without today is business card printing. Business cards are actually cost effective so even if you are on a tight budget, you can afford to create these cards. Basically, business cards serve as your introduction to your target customers. When you first see a prospective customer, you are actually presented with an opportunity to tell about yourself and your business to him or her. You do all this through writing. It’s like making an impression and expressing yourself in writing.

It is important that you put enough attention in designing your cards. Keep in mind that you want to draw in people to your business and not bore them or keep them away. Aside from putting your complete and updated contact details in your cards, you need to make sure that your cards are easy to read.

Likewise, don’t cram too many details in your cards. There is simply not enough room in your cards to include all information. You need to pick only the important details to put in your cards and leave other information in your other marketing materials. If you can tell people how long you have been in business, the better. This will help customers know that they are dealing with an established and credible business.

With the many business cards you have received, what have you noticed in these cards? Most of them don’t say a lot right? Usually, they are a waste of space as not everything is presented effectively in the card. Make sure that you don’t make the same mistake with your cards. Plan how you want to design your templates and make sure that only the important details are in your cards. Remember your cards are your representation, so you need to make sure they represent you well.

You can always consider putting your photo in your cards to help people recognize you easily. This is actually a unique way to design your cards. Just make sure that you have your photo professionally taken so people will be impressed with your card and remember you easily.

After designing your business card samples and having them printed your task now is to get your cards delivered to the right people. If you don’t want to waste your investment and have your cards collecting dust in the box, you need to device a way to get them in the hands of the right people. Aside from handing them out personally to your prospects, you can leave them in the following places:

1. In restaurants
2. On public bulletin boards
3. In public libraries
4. In shopping cards in grocery stores
5. In your doctor’s or dentist’s office
6. In just about anyplace where people are likely to see your card (more…)

You are a veteran or current service member and are bitten by the entrepreneur bug. Truth be known, you have always been an idea person, and mull over in your mind constantly business models and new strategies. You can’t wait to start your own business. Or, you are currently in business and exploding with concepts for expansion. In both instances, you have always dreamed taking on the world by succeeding in your own business. Your biggest problem is: How do you start? Where do I go from here to put into effect those ideas? More significantly, who is going give you the working capital (that’s right, the money) to put those fervent hopes to the test?

Well, there is something out there for you. Congress has rightfully acknowledged the service our veterans have conferred upon the nation by providing various benefit programs. We are all aware of benefits under the categories of home loans, education, rehabilitation, and the like, but what if you are the owner of a business? Fortunately there is a program that is devised specifically for our veteran and service-disabled business owners. It comes in the form of reasonable interest business loans administered through the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) and is called the Patriot Express Loan Program.

The SBA since 1953 has been in the business of promoting the interests of small businesses. Traditionally, they were largely neglected by large banks and had to secure their financing by reaching into their own pockets, as well as gingerly extending a hand toward families and friends. So in order to encourage the banks to open up their coffers, they came up with the idea of guaranteeing any default a bank would have after loaning the money. Bear in mind this is not my money coming directly from the Veterans Administration or the U.S. government, but from private banks. The SBA loans direct taxpayer dollars only in cases of the disasters (“FEMA” loans). So then the idea is to give banks the incentive to make a loan because 85% of it is now guaranteed against default with the loss reimbursed from the government. The result: hopefully banks will be more encouraged to make the loan in the first place. This all makes sense from an economic standpoint because as we all know, small businesses grow into large and more productive business models.

If you are currently a business owner or planning to take the plunge shortly, paramount in your mind is access to capital. Even the best ideas need the backing of moneys earmarked for development, advertising, inventory, office supplies and equipment, rental of office space, production costs, payroll, and the whole panoply of cash flow needs. This applies across the board to start-up businesses as well as existing ones who wish to expand. But where do you go to receive such funding? It is a dilemma that has been analyzed by Congress and they have come up with a solution.

So for years the SBA was licensing the private lenders and monitoring their activities along this line. But what about us veterans? Finally on Flag Day, June 2007, they inaugurated the “Patriot Express Loan Program” which was specifically devised for veteran own businesses. It worked under the same business model so the capital would land in the laps of such deserving business owners. Making it even easier, all existing licensed SBA lenders could get involved in the program with little paperwork. In fact, they used the same basic forms.

The loan amounts are between $5,000 and $500,000. The larger loans typically require 100% real estate collateral, more comprehensive financial paperwork, and a cash down payment if you are startup. But for the smaller loans between $5,000 and $25,000, they trimmed down the paperwork and made it especially easy without tax returns, business plans, or financials. As a “lean and mean” application process, it allows the lenders to make decisions within one or two days with funding in ten days by the wiring of the funds directly into a business account. (more…)
