More than 400 free resources, including video interviews with
successful small business owners from across America, will help
entrepreneurs launch, grow and build their businesses
SHOREVIEW, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2018--
Deluxe Corporation today launched an online service center offering
hundreds of free resources for small business owners, including the new
“Small Talks” video series, which features advice from successful
entrepreneurs across America.
Deluxe’s Small Business Resource Center, which was launched in
conjunction with National Small Business Week, is available at Deluxe.com/SBRC.
The more than 400 free resources include everything from how-to guides
to webinars to educational videos from experts at Deluxe. They cover a
wide range of helpful tools for starting a business, marketing your
business, managing finances and more.
“Deluxe has been helping small businesses for more than a century, and
along the way we have seen all of the challenges that entrepreneurs
encounter,” said Malcolm McRoberts, Senior Vice President, Small
Business Services. “Deluxe has developed a suite of marketing services
that help small business owners grow their businesses. The Small
Business Resource Center provides a comprehensive set of resources to
help small businesses overcome challenges – from articles on marketing
fundamentals, to blog posts about cybersecurity tips, to webinars about
building a budget.”
The Small Business Resource Center includes case studies and information
from real owners and entrepreneurs. “Small business owners want to hear
from their peers. They want real tools and techniques from people who
are just like them, so we found true stories that resonate with other
small business owners,” McRoberts said.
Deluxe also debuted its new “Small Talks” video series as part of the
Small Business Resource Center. In each episode, Deluxe’s Chief Brand
and Communications Officer Amanda Brinkman interviews successful small
business owners, who share actionable tips to help other small business
owners overcome common challenges.
The first wave of Small Talks videos features prominent entrepreneurs
from Minneapolis and Chicago. Several are now available at www.deluxe.com/sbrc/small-talks,
and additional episodes will be released in the coming weeks. The
featured experts include the founder of the fastest-growing fitness
franchise ever, a distillery owner who has helped more than 170 other
distilleries get off the ground, a nationally renowned pastry chef with
nine James Beard nominations, and more.
“While working with small business owners across the country, we have
heard time and again how much they love to receive advice directly from
fellow entrepreneurs,” Brinkman said. “For Small Talks, we hit the road
to gather insights directly from the source, sharing inspirational
stories from clothing designers, craft brewers, creators of coworking
spaces and many more – all of whom offer actionable advice that can
benefit small businesses everywhere.”
Small Talks is the latest video series that Deluxe has produced. The
company also created the Small Business Revolution, a multiyear movement
that shines a spotlight on the importance of small businesses. It began
by telling the stories of 100 small businesses through short videos and
photo essays. The company then launched Small Business Revolution – Main
Street, a show that focuses on revitalizing small business in one town.
Each year, Deluxe’s marketing experts give one lucky small town and its
Main Street businesses a $500,000 revitalization, and then
transformation is captured in an eight-episode season that streams at SmallBusinessRevolution.org.
