This week’s recap

Okay, in our effort to make Noobpreneur.com a better blog for its readers, we have put check marks on the tasks we plan to do last week; we have added more resources and also launched a contest.

Resource-wise, we have published a page offering free small business resources. The page will contain lists of free business resources in the form of digital magazines, white papers and some other types of publication. As mentioned, you can get the resources free of charge.

With regard to contest, we have just launched one yesterday – for every article you write about Noobpreneur.com we will give a $25 Kiva Card you can redeem to help entrepreneurs in developing countries establishing their business. We will then choose one winner to win and additional Kiva Card worth $50.

So, that’s all for last week; let’s talk about our plan for next week… the topic is “crowdfunding.”

Our plan for next week…

Noobpreneur.com will pitch for a partnership with crowdfunding sites (what is crowdfunding?), allowing you to support featured crowdfunding projects. Indeed, we will feature cool projects here on Noobpreneur.com. “Why don’t we just visit the site directly?” you might ask… well, the idea is to drive traffic from Noobpreneur.com to the projects we think interesting and give solutions to the problems of many.

The reason why we want to feature crowdrunding on Noobpreneur.com next week is because we believe that everyone has a right to support a project or a cause he/she is interested in. For Noobpreneur.com, featuring the projects will add both tangible and intangible value, as we actually offer something useful that many people will find interest on.

Many question the credibility of the projects (I admit – some projects look scammy, but most are legitimate,) but I think crowdfunding is a win-win situation.

You see, I love to invest, but I just don’t have millions to invest on a promising startup. The ability to invest your money – as little as $1 to as much as you want – into a crowdfunding project will drive interest of people like me to invest on projects that we love… even if we don’t get anything in return.

So, fingers crossed! As always, you will get updated next week – stay tuned… meanwhile, if you have any suggestions please let us know!
