Sizing up small business
Small business owners and new start ups now have an innovative tool to help them grow and compete in the marketplace, courtesy of the US Small Business Administration. The free tool, called SizeUp, helps business owners identify new customers and compare their performance against other businesses in their industry using data collected from hundreds of private and public sources. Business owners can use the tool to find the best places to advertise their business, and the mapping feature helps them see where customers and suppliers are located.
