Weekly Roundup - Get Paid, File for Tax Credits, and More

by Employee on ‎03-11-2011 06:57 AM


I love writing the Weekly Roundup because it means it’s Friday. :smileywink:  Also, it gives me the opportunity to read up on some small business related news and share with all of you.


Like all businesses, you want to get paid.  However, some clients delay payment which may put stress on your business.  Perhaps you’ll want to consider selling your invoices to a third party?


If you are still working on filing your taxes, check out this article which lists the 10 small business tax deductions most commonly overlooked.  Also, click here to learn about recent legislation that has increased tax credits for small business this year; which I’m sure you wouldn’t want to miss.


For those posting content online, @DIYSEO tweeted this blog to us (@VZSmallBiz) which lists 101 free (easy) SEO tips for small businesses.  These are tips to increase the chances of your online content being found easier and perhaps even coming up higher in search results.  


Check out, Verizon recently announced it’ll work with this organization to protect small businesses by expanding educational resources for users, and develop new security strategies for the mobile space.


Here’s an interesting report: the startup rate is at a 15-year high and if you have a few minutes watch that video.  What a neat concept, starting a business to target start-ups.  Lastly, this one’s for all the men who read this blog: Dockers will award you $100,000 to pursue your dream or start your business.  Act fast as the deadline to submit is fast approaching.


Until next time, happy reading!
