The Visa Business Network has recently launched a new website for small business owners. It is a free resource dedicated to small business owners, helping them connect with other small businesses who have been in their shoes and to ask for advice on specific topics to help them grow their business, from accounting to social media strategies.
New features on the Visa Business Network include:
• Business Goal Toolkits – unique step-by-step “how to” guides that lead small business owners through the process of setting and achieving business goals. The interactive toolkits correlate with goals which small business owners have identified as being the most relevant to the challenges they face in growing their business – from best practices for promoting their business on Facebook and other social networks, to developing and delivering email newsletters to reach new and existing customers.
• Small Business Mentor Program – small businesses get personalized help and guidance from other successful small business owners. Having faced similar business challenges, these seasoned mentors offer advice and perspective to help Visa Business Network participants achieve their goals.
• Question & Answer Forum – members are able to collaborate by asking questions related to their goals and receive personalized advice and responses from small business peers and mentors with experience across a wide range of industries.
• Content Ranking – this feature provides small businesses with quick access to the resources and articles fellow small business owners have declared most useful.
