We prefer articles that stem from your personal experience as a business owner or manager which are helpful in nature. Prefer first-person point of view.

But if you're a freelance writer, we'll look at your work too. In this case, we like articles that establish authority in the small business marketing or operations niche. Include reputable statistics and sources to back up your points.

If you think it could help other small business owners, we want to hear about it!

The marketing tactics you shared with me took our small family-owned restaurant from zero at startup to well over $1 million annually. Honestly, I never expected to get to that level or do it so quickly. When we started out nine years ago, our accountant couldn't believe how well we were doing for a new venture. And we stayed at that level.

The best part is we did this on a shoestring budget, with no expensive newspaper or magazine advertising. And I manage to do it all in-house, with a personal computer and a small desktop printer. Thanks a million...literally!
