Reliant Funding’s Top Small Business Articles of the Week for December 6th, 2018

Our weekly roundup of the most relevant articles this week in the small business world.

U.S. Small-Business Owners’ Optimism Reaches New Heights

U.S. small-business owners are more optimistic about business conditions now than at any point in the 15-year history of the Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index. In the latest quarterly survey, which measures small-business owners’ attitudes about a wide variety of factors affecting their business, the overall index score is +129. This is up from the prior record high of +118 established last quarter. Confidence among small-business owners has improved steadily in 2018, and now sits well above the pre-2018 high of +114 from 2006.

10 Essential Things Every Small Business Owner Should Do Before the End of the Year

It’s hard to believe that 2018 is coming to a close! Many small business owners are already thoroughly immersed in Q4 prep; however, it is always possible they could accidentally forget to include something important on their to-do list. One forgotten item from the agenda could set your business back, or even have the potential to penalize it entirely next year. Let’s try to keep that from happening to your company. If you haven’t already taken care of these 10 items, start adding them to your to-do list now to tackle before 2019 arrives.

How to Market Your Small Business with Personalized Videos

Social media has exploded the ways that businesses can engage their target audience. Using visual images in your post, tweets, and shares increase views and sales. According to a report published by the Social Media Examiner, 80% of marketers use visual assets in their marketing and sales campaigns. Videos are also important, and growing in popularity both by marketers and audiences. In fact, the Social Media Examiner report stated that the use of video alone has surpassed blogging as a social media asset.

The 25 best small companies to work for, according to employees

Your job might be interfering with your ability to sleep, have a sense of humor, and feel comfortable taking vacations.

If that’s the case, it may be time to look for a new job — and while big companies have some great opportunities, don’t overlook smaller firms, either. Glassdoor, a job site with 45 million company reviews, has just released its annual Employees’ Choice Awards for the Best Places to Work. It also created a list of 50 companies with fewer than 1,000 employees where workers are especially satisfied.
