BusinessTV Channel.com - Worth the Time

Here's an excellent resource for small business owners and entrepreneurs: BusinessTVchannel.com.

BusinessTVchannel.com is an Internet site where you can go to watch and listen to video on business topics of interest to small business owners. It's like a cross between broadcast TV and the Internet.

They offer a morning newscast. They also offer shows on topics such as managing cash flow, how to hire good people, and increasing your sales.

Ruth King, the CEO, is just like most small business owners in the real world: a down-to-earth business person. Ruth has been a pioneer in video and educational resources to serve small business owners. The site was started as EntrepreneursTV.com, and just recently changed its name.

When Ruth first contacted me, I have to admit that I wondered "why would anyone need a newscast for small business?" But then I watched the newscast, and realized it really saves you time. It is a crisp 20 minutes, tailored specifically for time-starved business owners. A lot of the extraneous business news applicable to stock market trading, earnings reports, etc. is summarized and filtered, so that you get just what you need to know. It doesn't take the place of your local newscasts for local news, but it certainly cuts down on the time you need to spend getting the business news.

You really have to try it to see what I mean.

All the shows are recorded, so you can watch them anytime of the day or night using Windows Media player, no matter what time zone you are in, right from your computer. Or you can do what I do, and listen to the shows while working on something else at your computer.

Here's the best part: through February 15, 2005, readers of Small Business Trends can take advantage of an outstanding special. If you sign up for BusinessTVchannel.com using the promotional code "smallbiztrends" you can get the first two months for only $2 (US dollars). Yes, that's right, just $2.

After that the cost is currently $19.95 per month plus tax. You can cancel at any time, but I think once you start watching BusinessTVchannel.com, you will want to stick with it.

Here at Small Business Trends we earn a few shiny nickels for each BusinessTVchannel.com subscription. But as regular readers know, I provide a limited selection of offers and I choose them very carefully. When I offer something on this site -- such as free trade magazines or inexpensive marketing lists -- readers seem to feel they are getting something worthwhile, based on the popularity of them. But I'll let you be the judge of that.
