SHOREVIEW, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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.
