With the economy struggling, many business owners are looking for ways to save money. Entrepreneur Magazine has come up with 50 money-saving ideas that will help you save in all aspects of your business. Here are just a few to think about:
>Got a happy customer? Encourage them to tell others how much they enjoyed your business and services, word of mouth news travels fast.
>Start networking: blogs, message boards, social networks, etc.
>Fill out forms online that you can customize yourself instead of buying ones at an office supply store, or trying to create them yourself.
>Consider hiring temp employees to handle surges in business, and interns that will work for free or low-cost.
>Get checks in the mail, they are usually cheaper than getting them from a bank.
>Clean up your mailing list, eliminate nonresponders and marginal prospects.
