Happy Tuesday! This week’s tidbit is a really great one. In this economy we all need a bit of a jump start to get our businesses going. There is a fabulous website called http://www.Kabbage.com that can help you out! What Kabbage does is it takes into account your selling history and determines a specific amount of money that you can borrow to purchase supplies, advertising, or whatever you need to start up your business.
I found Kabbage a few months ago and have found it to be extremely helpful. I am using Kabbage as this weeks tidbit because I know we could all use a little extra cash around the holidays, and this is a great way to fund your advertising and get your holiday products seen!
So here is how it works(and it’s super easy!). First visit http://www.kabbage.com and fill out the appropriate forms. Kabbage will then determine how much you can borrow based on your selling history on Etsy. Then you can choose the amount you would like deposited into your paypal account, and voila, you have money!
I kow this all sounds great but as with any kind of loan, you need to pay it back over time. Kabbage has a 6 month pay back period and there is some interest.
Kabbage can be really great but proceed with caution:)
I am looking for some volunteer’s to place an ad in my holiday gift guide. I have decided to have a give away and you could have an ad in the guide for free! Simply send an e-mail to http://email@example.com with the subject FREE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE SPOT along with your shop name, e-mail address, name and reason you would like a free spot. I will then send an e-mail out with the winners.
