Small Business Expo.com is a resource for small business owners. Armchair entrepreneurs can get insight and compare products and services they would need for their business. It is designed to facilitate the starting of home bases business. It provides a recommendation into the services that an entrepreneur should be utilizing.
Why this idea is the best.
Any one who has started a business knows that it is hard. An entrepreneur looking to start their own company basically has three paths. The first is to work in Corporate America for several years to gain experience and then branch out into a niche that they identify. The second is to buy a franchise and the third is to start a home business such as with a network marketing company or other small scale enterprise that they run in addition to their career. This site provides resource to anyone who is interested in traveling any one of these paths.
The founders bring their own expertise from launching their own company. They have provided a framework that other entrepreneurs can build from. The site has four practical categories: Services, Equipments & Supplies, Software and Franchise & Opportunities.
For example, through this site a person can easily search through the services section and find a category for merchant accounts. This one utility would allow any small business to charge for their services in a professional manner that will increase their revenue; charge.com claims the difference can be as high as 400%.
The educational component is invaluable. The website has business podcasts and webinars that would benefit entrepreneurs at all levels. Specifically, the topic of education is marketed as the main benefit of many home based business ideas. I think this would provide perspective that many arm-chair entrepreneurs are looking for and would be interested.
