Earth Day is slated for April 22, giving businesses an opportunity to take part in some eco-friendly activities. Some of these actions can potentially even make your office more energy efficient throughout the rest of the year and provide some inspiration to your team and even your customers. Green Activities for Earth Day Here are 20 ideas for you to make the most of Earth Day 2018.

58% of Main Street Small Businesses Not Seeing Sales Bump Under Trump Administration

Koble’s 2018 SMB Sales and Growth Confidence Survey has revealed 58 percent of small businesses are less confident in sales prospects under the Trump administration. And 43 percent said the tax reform will have no impact on their business. In conducting the survey, Koble was looking to figure out the growth obstacles small businesses were facing along with their sales plan for 2018, taxes, the Trump administration and investment in their company. With the first quarter of 2018 almost gone, small businesses are assessing the year to date and how they should plan for the remainder of the year. As owners look for new opportunities, the Koble survey provides insights into what these small business owners are thinking in key areas, and the environment they are operating in. The Koble 2018 SMB Sales and Growth Confidence Survey was conducted over the last several weeks to examine small business owners’ sentiment on growing their businesses in 2018. Koble commissioned the Google Survey, which was carried out with the participation of 500 owners and managers of small to medium-size businesses with fewer than 100 employees across the United States. Key Findings of the 2018 SMB Sales and Growth Confidence Survey When asked the top ways businesses plan to create sales leads, 49 percent said through online advertising, followed by 41 percent who said networking online, and another 35 percent who indicated they were going to accomplish it through networking events or conferences. As to the challenges small businesses face, 46 percent said finding new customers was their biggest concern. Limited access to capital and hiring new employees were also top challenges stressed by 16 percent of the respondents. As a company specializing in facilitating connections between small businesses and large corporations, Koble also noted the number of small businesses desiring to make those connections. When asked about the companies they would like to form partnerships with, 31.9 percent said Apple, 31.5 percent said Walmart. 21.26 percent said Berkshire Hathaway, 7.68 percent said Exxon Mobil and another 7.68 said McKesson. Regarding the Trump administration and the recent tax cut, 43 percent said the tax reform will…

Kabbage Says 17% of Its Small Business Loans are Accessed on Mobile Devices

With the growth of mobile lending, online lender Kabbage now says 17 percent of all its small business loans are being accessed through mobile. The company recently analyzed the lending behavior of almost 150,000 borrowers to draw out some interesting data. Small Business Mobile Lending Rising Kabbage says the move to mobile highlights the need small businesses have for convenience, which now also includes access to capital. The company is predicting by the end of 2018 one out of every five dollars loaned to small businesses will be through a mobile device. Mobile technology has introduced multiple ways to improve the way small businesses operate. This has made it possible for owners and their workforce, customers, partners and vendors to communicate, collaborate and even make payments from almost anywhere. Access to lending is a natural progression of all the other functionalities mobile provides. Kabbage Chief Revenue Officer, Victoria Treyger, said as much in a recent post on the official Kabbage blog company blog. Treyger explained, “The growth of mobile lending is evidence of an enormous change occurring in this industry. Small business owners are increasingly digitally savvy and are adopting new technologies faster than ever before. Lending is no different. Kabbage is pioneering this shift in lending by making it a priority to meet small business owners where they are and integrate seamlessly into how they’re already running their businesses.” In its findings, Kabbage saw an increase of more than 360 percent in the total number of loans accessed through mobile between April 2014 and February 2018. The growth for the total amount of dollars accessed during the same period jumped by an impressive 1,220 percent. The growth in mobile lending also comes as the overall lending for small businesses is increasing. The Thomson Reuters/PayNet Small Business Lending Index reports the November 2017 Small Business Lending Index rose 4.1 percent to 138.7, which was up more than 7 percent compared to the previous year. The Kabbage platform has been designed to give small businesses access to capital by allowing them to apply, qualify and withdraw funds from a mobile app.…

Think Your Business Plan Template is Creative? These 7 will Make you Reconsider

Starting your own business is so stressful, with so many things to be done, that it’s easy to convince yourself that doing the bare minimum for a business plan is enough. There are a ton of business-plan templates out there, so you could always just dump your own information into one of them and run with it. After all, you just need it to get funding, and then you’ll never look at it again. Right? Well, you could do that, but your business plan can actually be a living document you use often, to ensure your performance and growth are on track. Updating and referring to your plan on a regular basis can drive better decision making and help keep your focus clear. This is critical as the demands of growth, customers, staff, and investors threaten to cloud your company’s vision. A generic business plan sample with your details just dumped in isn’t going to wow anyone, and it’s not going to inspire you on a regular basis. Hopefully, I’ve convinced you the plan is important–but it’s just as important that it’s not boring. You’re making your pitches even tougher if you’re using a generic, flavorless business plan. But I know from experience that the last thing you have when you’re starting your own business is an abundance of time to dream up creative ideas for your business plan. Don’t worry–you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Creative Business Plan Templates Check out these insanely creative business plan templates for your new business idea and imagine the difference one could make in helping you get past that first major hurdle with investors: grabbing their attention in a BIG way. 1. Business Plan Infographic PowerPoint Present your market analysis, timeline, statistics, and more in an engaging and highly visual infographic.
