Small Business Week: What’s New in Tech to Help Small Businesses Grow! Marc Silverstein Shares!

This is Small Business Week. Why is that important? Because small businesses are the backbone of this country. There were no big stores or chains when this country was founded. Those came into being over a couple of centuries. That said, most of the greatest improvements in technology have come from people who started out as entrepreneurs and did it the hard way. My friend, Marc Silverstein is also a small business owner. His company, On the Marc Media, is something he has worked at for a long time. He knows how hard it is to be a small business owner. He speaks with authority and experience.

We all know the important role small businesses and entrepreneurs play in our economy and our society. According to Entrepreneur magazine:

Estimates place the number of small businesses in the U.S. at between 25 million and 27 million. Although many of these are “micro-companies” or are run by “solo-preneurs,” the statistics are pretty consistent in showing that 60 percent to 80 percent of all U.S. jobs are created by small businesses.

With small businesses driving our economy, what’s helping them drive it?

Technology is playing a big role in helping entrepreneurs get started and helping them leverage their companies against the big guys. Having the right, affordable tools has a lot to do with it. Join media entrepreneur Marc Silverstein of “on the Marc Media” as he shows us the tools and services small businesses rely on today and as he shows us how technology is one of the few line items in a budget that has actually dropped in price while its performance has increased.

From technology like tablets and laptops, to scanners and printers, phones, apps and storage to services like data security, telecom, credit cards and virtual offices. Speaking of cutting costs, technology itself has dropped in price while its power has increased dramatically. In 1995 three hundred dollars got you 80 megabytes, and a one-gigabyte drive from IBM cost more than $3,000. Single speed CD-ROMs sold for $600. Today, if you could buy this hardware, it would cost between 10 and 25% of what it cost two years ago.
