With most small businesses already entirely immersed in the holiday season, it is important to start preparing for the new year. The good news is that financial optimism is rising and small businesses should expect to see continued financial improvement over the following 6 months, according to Capital One’s Spark Small Business Barometer. However, the same study says that over half of small business owners consider their current business conditions to be fair or poor. If you fall under the latter, read on to see some of the best financial tips that I’ve gathered to help your new year kick off with a good start.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, December 17, 2013 12:27 AM

Turns out the only QUICK thing about writing 5 SEO Tips for Content Marketers is reading it (lol). I quickly realized I'd bitten off more than I can comfortably chew (a familiar state). Each of these 5 tips could command several thousand words to fully 'splan it

Every startup entrepreneur is a content marketer whether they realize it or not. Startups need to do content first, but they rarely do. Trying to explain every aspect of SEO for thoe new to content marketing like startps would take 10,000 words.

So I didn't try to explain content marketing SEO soup to nuts. Instead of getting deep in the weeds I shared experience with each tip and links to learn more.


No one should attempt to do all 5 at the same time anyway since any 2 of them will be a full time job for a 3 to 5 person Internet marketing team for several weeks to a month.

BUT, do any 2 of these tips and your website's traffic, conversions and profits go up. Want to know why conversions go up? Read my GPlus intro: https://plus.google.com/102639884404823294558/posts/4kWa3aorYCc

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet | The Core Business Show with Tim Jacquet | Scoop.it

There are reasons other than sheer brillance Warren Buffet has way more money than most. He lives by a strict code and these tips share some of that code. Great #startup and life tips. 

My favorites are learning to spend only AFTER saving (hard lesson that one) and the tip about honesty being expensive so don't expect it from "cheap people". I suspect Warren means "cheap" in much more than the monetary sense.

If you own jewelry and have no use for it, you can donate to charity and enjoy a fair market tax deduction. Jewelry donations range from broken gold necklaces and jewelry missing gemstones to very rare and hard to come by fine or estate jewelry. You will receive the absolute maximum tax deduction for your generous jewelry donation. http://www.collectibleswithcauses.org/
