How small businesses can use influencer marketing

Influencer marketing has traditionally been available only to large corporations that command massive capital and huge labor bases. However, the advent of the internet and social media has made influencer marketing available to businesses that are not cash rich, allowing them to tap into this powerful strategy for growth.

Settling a breach of contract

When you enter into a contract with another party, you expect that party to hold up his or her obligations. For example, if you own a medical practice in San Diego and you contract with a specific vendor to provide medical supplies, you expect that vendor to deliver on every one of your orders. If the vendor fails to deliver the products on time, does not deliver the correct products, or fails to honor the contract in any other way, then it is a breach of contract.

Fintech WePay will be acquired by JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Californians might be interested in learning that JPMorgan Chase & Co. has agreed to purchase WePay, a financial technology startup. The bank decided to acquire WePay in order to help small businesses with the faster collection of payments.

Accountant malpractice and E&O insurance

California business owners and entrepreneurs should have peace of mind regarding the ability and professionalism of their accountants. Some of that peace of mind may come in the form of the accountant's malpractice insurance. Also referred to as errors and omissions insurance, or E&O insurance, malpractice policies apply to cover harm to clients resulting from misinterpreted or misleading statements, errors, breaches of professional duty, performance-related claims or professional negligence.

Leveraging rural areas as a business advantage

Those who are starting new companies may believe that they have to relocate to California or New York City to be competitive. While there are many resources in those parts of the country, a new trend has seen businesses move away from those areas. This is partially because it may be too expensive to operate there.

Lean operations aid startups

California giants Google and Facebook emerged at the outset as startups. Although entrepreneurs have found much success in the state, the creation of new companies has slowed. The launch of Facebook represents that last big success story. Leading companies have become adept at recognizing rising stars and buying them before they create substantial competition, as illustrated by PayPal's purchase of Venmo. In this climate, entrepreneurs hoping to raise their big ideas to prominence need to stretch every dollar and find innovative methods for hiring talent.
