The Quickest Way To Start a Successful Secretarial Services Business

With the current economy, more and more people are looking for ways to add a second stream of income to their regular job or replace their job entirely.

Many people who have typing skills want to make money with at home typing and data entry work. But many are looking in the wrong places and they often fall for online typing and data entry programs. These types of programs will only pay them a commission when they sell someone else’s product as an affiliate. Don’t fall for promises of easy money. You’ll be disappointed.

One of the few ways to get legitimate typing work from home is to run a secretarial service business.

Are you wondering how to get started and how to get clients? A new guide will show you how.

Guide creator Leva Duell has been there: “I know exactly how you feel because I have been there. Fourteen years ago I bought a used computer with my credit card. Then, I had to figure out a way to pay off my credit card fast. So, I decided to provide secretarial and typing services from home. I learned as I earned and made many mistakes. This guide is the result of my experiences. I want to make it easy for you to start earning extra money quickly and bypass the mistakes I made.”

The guide covers things like:

– A step-by-step start-up checklist that will tell you exactly what steps to take and in what sequence.
– How to get clients, who your most profitable clients are and how to market to them effectively.
– Prewritten letters and postcards to promote your secretarial services.
– How to charge for your services. Get this right and you’ll be profitable. Get this wrong and you may find yourself without any clients.
– And much more…

Starting a successful secretarial services business does not have to be complex or expensive if you have a plan of action and follow it. And that is what this guide provides, from start to finish. By using this guide you can cut down the time it takes to get up and running and getting your first clients.

Eco-Friendly Printing – The Answer To Reducing Our Carbon Footprint On This Planet

Have you noticed how much printing there is all around you? Everything is printed, from the letters on the keyboard of your computer, the news papers and magazines that you read on a daily basis, business cards, flyers, brochures, money and checks, your clothing and its tags, posters and advertisements on the street a all the way to that lovely pattern on your kitchen floor. The list is endless! Eco-Friendly printing can make all of those products greener.


Eco-Friendly printing is achieved by using Green Certified substrates (such as paper and other materials) which either comes from tree farms (trees grown for the sole purpose of producing paper) or has a high content of recycled material. In addition, one of the most important components is soy based inks, which are 100% organic. With our modern technology, soy based inks can achieve the same color intensity, durability and brightness than conventional VOC releasing (volatile organic compound) inks which are solvent or oil based. Or even worse, Chinese printing, their inks have a high content of lead. Many U.S. magazine companies are now printing in China to save money, there is nothing wrong with saving a few bucks, right? Well, the problem is that we are killing the planet by using conventional printing and also our selves. Think about it, when you hold a magazine in your hands and you flip through it, how many times do you take your index finger to your mouth to get some moisture, so that the pages stick better and you can keep flipping through the magazine? Every time you do so, you are eating lead! On top of that, the printing industry employs more people in the U.S. than the car manufacturing industry, and now it is being outsourced to China.

While it is more expensive for printing companies to produce Eco-Fiendly products, the benefits of doing so are significant, and ultimately responsibility is not just good for our planet, but good for us as well. Today in the U.S., there are a few companies out there that will absorb this overhead cost and print “Green” at no extra cost to the consumer. A great example of such a company is Best Press, based out of La Jolla, CA., Best Press, not only does it create American jobs, but it gives businesses, corporations and consumers the option to print Green at no extra cost. Their pricing is extremely reasonable, and in most cases below industry average. So if you are in need of some business cards, flyers or any other printing for your self or your business or corporation, look no further than an environmentally conscious company, your children will be glad you did so!

Recession: The Mother of Invention

With the economy presently on the downswing, most people are looking for creative ways to increase their income or make up for a job loss. Small business owner and freelance writer, Julie Momyer, has addressed this need in a unique way by researching and assembling information on manufacturers interested in purchasing or licensing new product ideas and inventions in her newly released book, To Market To Market: Where to Sell or License Your Ideas, Products and Inventions.” (ISBN 978-1-59977-019-2)


Regardless of the economic outlook personal and business needs still exist, and with small business in the US generating more than half of the gross domestic product it is the private sector that has the capacity to deliver. Alana Semuels’, May 25, 2009, LA Times article, “Some Inventions Born Amidst Recession,” gives us a glimpse of how presently laid off Americans are using their ingenuity and creativity to bounce back by licensing or selling their inventions. The iTie, the Lid Punch, and Squishy Toes are only a few of the newly launched inventions resulting from job loss, and are a reminder of what ordinary people can do and have done to overcome in this economic downturn.

For decades new businesses have been birthed through the licensure or sale of innovative products and ideas contributing to individual finances as well as strengthening our national economy. To Market To Market: Where to Sell or License Your Ideas, Products and Inventions was written with this in mind. This directory simplifies locating manufacturers interested in reviewing unsolicited ideas with the possibility of pursuing a contract to purchase or license.

A small business owner and freelance writer, Julie Momyer, has several years of research experience in a number of fields with extensive practical knowledge and interest in small business and new product ideas.

BT Business IT Support Manager Battles Printergeist

UK businesses clocked up a massive 22,000 calls to BT Business IT Support Manager between January and March 2009, and sales doubled over the period, as more small businesses look to down-the-line IT support rather than risk downtime during the recession.

BT Business IT Support

Over the three months, the bulk of calls were requests for network and mail assistance, with email help triggering more than a quarter. Virus and security issues alone prompted nearly 10 per cent of BT Business IT Support Manager help desk contact.

While most operating system, server and back-up issues are easily resolved, BT Business took a little longer to solve some of the stranger customer requests. One customer was convinced that a poltergeist was changing the print server settings, one didn’t plug in their router’s power because it was wireless, and another asked for help to cut a CD to fit a PC floppy drive.

Andy Dell, general manager, IT services, BT Business said: “Most IT problems will flummox the best of us, but there is a serious message behind these funny stories. In the current economic climate firms can’t be off line for any length of time so we’d advise customers to refer to a team of dedicated experts who are fully equipped to deal with the problem. We are experiencing new highs in the volume of requests for help, as more and more of our customers rely on PCs to run their business.”

A dedicated business service, BT Business IT Support Manager is a business service for personal computers running either MacOS or Windows. BT advisors provide straightforward, jargon free, advice and support over the phone. The team of BT computer experts provide a cost effective alternative or enhancement to an in-house IT support team, and can fix problems by accessing a computer remotely through the customer’s broadband connection – whether from BT or another ISP.
