National Small Business Week, first proclaimed in 1963, celebrates America's entrepreneurs and small business owners. According to the US Small Business Administration, more than half of Americans own or work for a small business. Small businesses are responsible for creating "about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year."
In honor of National Small Business Week, we've compiled these resources to help your small business grow:
A collection of fast, affordable ways to improve your small business marketing, customer service, and branding.
How to use Message On Hold as a tool that helps your business and informs your customers.
How to pick overhead music that delights your customers, builds your brand, and engages your staff.
Learn how to create high quality content on Vine, a free social media service.
If you can talk, you can record your own podcast or audio blog. Get some ideas for starting your own.
