In the 4 years I’ve been writing about bookkeeping on my website The Savvy Bookkeeping Blog I’ve learned a lot from reading other people’s posts on small business.
Here are some of my favourites that I’d recommend having a look at if you’re needing inspiration or tips to run a successful business.
Insanely Clever Marketing
Penelope is a fellow Adelaidian whose blog covers not only marketing, but also office design and style, as well as office fashion.
One of my favourite posts: Where the heck is your branding? Get it recognised now
Cath runs her own massage practice in the U.S and I love this blog because it’s such an honest insight into running a business and what has and hasn’t worked well for her. Cath’s blog has tips on such things as handling your small business taxes, getting new customers and much more.
One of my favourite posts: How to show clients you love them
Adventures of a QBO Bookkeeper
Jennie is a Canadian bookkeeper and has a tonne of great stuff on her blog including articles, small business app reviews and videos. Jennie manages to make bookkeeping fun (what??).
One of her short videos: What is cloud accounting Jennie – I don’t get it.
Steve J Bicknell
Steve Bicknell is an accountant based in the U.K. and is very generous in the free content he makes available for readers. If you are a business owner based in the U.K. you are going to get a lot out of this blog.
One of my favourites posts: Do you want to work for yourself?
Colin is based in New Zealand and is the founder of Top Performers. His focus is to “find ways for people and businesses to achieve more from less.” I particularly learn a lot from his sales-focused posts but there are lots of other areas he covers as well, including: 5 Tips to manage overload
All these bloggers regularly post content so you’ll always have something new to read – and in the true spirit of blogging they are extremely generous in the professional advice they give for free via their posts.
