Everybody knows how important web sites are for any organization. Small businesses have special challenges with their web design. Also it is critical to get it right.

You have in all probability gathered there is a heap to learn. do not feel astounded by the downright volume of advice. take an oppurtunity to get it right from the get go.

The utmost question for small business owners is, How much should I cough up on my web design. There is no justification you have to spend over $1000, lest you have a need for awfully distinguished features. Apart from that the answer comes down to your level of participation.

Greater places of business most likely will offer lower charges nevertheless your level of advice and aid will be pared down. A smaller business offering hosting will work harder to keep you as a customer.

If you do not have the time, you should hirer a small business web site design firm. There is no need to spend a mass of money. You should be able to get a tops caliber product for around $500.

Even skimpy alterations each year will make a big contrast.

A excellent clue to save money when employing a web design company. Summarize out what you commitment and design it before hand. If you come with this intelligence in hand with enough specifics it will be easier for the design business to do their craft.

Greatest of luck with your company and your recent website. Done well you will see a first-class conversion rate of your visitor traffic into leads and over time organic traffic will begin to come in from the search engines. Money spent here is an investment not an expsense.

A Word From Art Hamel . . .

By senoff.michael@gmail.com On September 15, 2011 No Comments

If you’d like to know how to buy a business the “easy” way, as opposed to the way 99% of everyone else does it, then this e-mail will show you how.

You see, it all comes down to getting investors to finance your business.

When you do that, 99% of the “work” is already done for you.

The first 25 years I was in business, I never used investors.

I used banks.

I used owner financing.

I used supplier financing.

I rented financial statements.

I did everything under the sun to get the financing.

And I was doing it the hard way.

And I found that, when you’re working with investors, the whole process of buying a business changes.

It becomes easier and a LOT more profitable for you.

On the other hand, if you try to get owner financing, for example, the owner’s going to “qualify” you first.

He’s going to ask for extra collateral on everything and do everything he can to make sure you’re “for real”.

And that you’re not some flake who’s going to stiff him later on down the road.

He has to, if you think about it.

He has to protect himself.

And it’s the same with bankers and traditional lenders.

On the other hand, when you come in to buy a business with an investor or investors, you’re basically not asking for financing.

You’re paying all cash.

So, you don’t have to go a bank.

You don’t have to go through the seller.

It’s like buying a car.

The car dealer only needs to run your credit if you plan to finance the car.  But if you show him cash, he won’t care what your credit rating is or what your financial statement looks like.

It’s the same when you use investor money.

And since most investors — not all of them, but 99 percent of the investors I’ve worked with — are business owners, they’re not banker mentalities.

For them, it boils down to one thing:

If they think what you’re doing makes sense, and if you and the investor get along and you like each other, you’re going to find you get the money.

Period.

It’s funny.

They don’t teach this at Harvard or any of the Ivy League business schools.

But the fact is, when you buy a business using investor financing, the most difficult thing is simply getting off your duff to go out and find a good business that makes sense.

Everything else is actually pretty easy.

Warmest regards,

Arthur Hamel

It’s something you should consider checking out starting today.

Go the first Interview I did with Michael, go to

http://www.hardtofindseminars.com/How_To_Buy_A_Business.htm

Arthur Hamel has bought over 200 businesses in the last 40 years. He started back in the 1960’s, with a small 25 unit motel in Modesto, California that took all of his time, energy and money and today buys only multi-million dollar businesses that require almost none of his time, energy and money. Art has since shown tens of thousands of other people — via seminars and his own unique home study course — how to do the same thing.

Believe it or not, you can buy a business – even in today’s economy. In fact, business-buying expert Art Hamel says he likes to buy businesses during recessions because owners are more motivated to sell, which could mean easier and more profitable deals for you. And in this Business Buying System, you’ll hear exactly how to make the recession work for you. According to Art, one of the biggest mistakes you can make when buying a business is complicating the process. If you follow his plan, you won’t need extensive knowledge, fancy concepts or even research about your market. So in Art Business Buying System you’ll hear an outline of the entire process, from selecting a successful business to choosing an exit strategy. Art’s broken it into digestible sections and here’s a rundown of what you get.

How To Use Your Marketing Skills Like A Bank . . .

By senoff.michael@gmail.com On September 14, 2011 No Comments

Hogwash

Who says you need money to buy and own your own business?

You don’t

And here’s an interview that will show you why.

It’s called . . .

How To Use Your Marketing Skills Like A Bank To Buy Companies Without Using Cash..

Go to

http://www.hardtofindseminars.com/Own_A_Business.htm

Even though Chris was having no problems finding clients and making thousands of dollars per HMA step, it wasn’t nearly the kind of money he wanted from his consulting practice.

So he decided to get a little creative. Now when Chris finds a company that can significantly and quickly benefit from the HMA system, he’s no longer looking to get fees from them. He’s looking to acquire the company itself.

It all started when Chris noticed a trend in the business community.

He started seeing more and more “baby boomer” owners looking to hand off their businesses and retire without losing their shirts.

Chris also noticed these business owners were very realistic about their options in today’s economy and were more than open to less-than-traditional buyout offers.

That’s where the HMA system comes in. Chris uses only the revenue generated by his HMA steps to buy out companies. He simply makes a deal with the business owners that any money generated in excess of their current operating margins goes toward the acquisition of their company.

And in this audio, you’ll hear all the details of these unusual buy-outs, and how you can easily start making them too.

You’ll Also Hear…

*Exactly how Chris buys out a company from start to finish including where he finds the businesses and how he closes his deals.

*What criteria Chris looks for in potential companies and how he analyzes and tests them before he jumps in

*Why you’ll want to assemble a team for your buyouts and how to do it effectively and efficiently

*What risks you can expect and ways to mitigate them

*How to tell business owners that you’d like to acquire their companies using untraditional methods and how to negotiate those deals

*All about the “out” clauses involved in a sale – and how to make sure you’re never working for nothing

*Who pays to put the money into the company to get the HMA steps going and what happens if there are silent shareholders or the business has a lien

Chris’s method essentially joins the HMA system with the Art Hamel one, creating a powerful combination that allows you to have access to hundreds of thousands of dollars in company profits without needing to put any cash down to do it.

The potential here is limitless. And now is the perfect time to get started – with more and more businesses experiencing cash flow problems while their “baby boomer” owners are looking to get out.

So even if you’re not sure buying out businesses is for you, you may want to give this hour-long audio a listen.
