December 13, 2008

Market research is on the mind of the first featured applicant of the Small Business Stimulus package.  Sara is in the middle of the market research phase for a sewing and craft supplies business.

You can read more in the small business section about her market, her plans for the business, and some suggestions I make for how she could research her market.  Check it out and give Sara some other ideas she could use to connect with people locally to pick their brain about their craft needs – Market Research Tips

Contest Sponsors

I’d like to thank contest sponsors Anne Haynes, Oak Ave Productions, and Write and Promote for offering their services as prizes to help out small businesses.  I’m currently in discussions with a few other companies that would like to provide prizes as well.

I was contacted by someone at Intuit yesterday about their MyCorporation service that lets you incorporate online.  They’re currently offering their corporation and limited liability filing services for free, here is what he had to say about the offer:

“We now know that the economy is in a recession.  And one of the best ways to turn the nation around is to get people back to work.  So, MyCorporation is doing our part, offering our services for FREE, so entrepreneurs nationwide can start new businesses and give back to their local communities through the creation of new jobs.”
