Resource Centre

To ensure this site remains up-to-date, we have restricted all external resources to this section. As new resources are identified, they will be listed here. It's important to remember that the resources here only represent those which we are currently aware of and consider to be of value to a small business. Should you discover any resources you also feel could be of value to a small business, we encourage you to
notify us of their existence.

Web Site Publishers Database

The Web Site Publishers
database consists of individuals who are in a position to offer a cost effective web site publishing service.

A major issues facing all small businesses is the scarcity of time and appropriate resources needed to develop and maintain an effective web site. When was the last time you prepared your own Tax Return? If you're like most small businesses it's likely that you have someone else do it for you. It's not because you can't do it yourself, it's usually because you'd much prefer to work on those aspects of your business which you consider to be more productive. The problem with establishing a web site is
"who do you turn to"? The Web Site Publishers database should be a good starting point.

Get A Web Site Quote

To further assist small business owners in locating the services of a Web Site Publisher who can help with the development of their web site, a special "Quotes Wanted" database has been set up. Simply enter your request for what you'd like to achieve and wait for someone to contact you with details on what they can do for you. This database is actually promoted within the Web Site Publishers network so you don't have to worry about dealing with any expensive design or internet 'experts'.

Sample Sites

An excellent way to establish content and design ideas for your own web site is by looking at what others have done. In the not too distant future, we will set up a database containing sites which are considered great examples of how a small business site should 'look and feel'. In the meantime, if you happen to find a great small business web site which you feel is worthy of further investigation by others, please feel free to
send us the URL (Web Address). They will be placed here for others to see.
