Quick Tip:
Small-Business Development Centers

There is a great resource for getting help with the business side of copywriting … and it's free. I'm talking about the SBA's Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs).

These centers offer assistance to small businesses and individuals in the form of counseling, training, and technical help. They can, for example, help you prepare SBA loan applications … and they can answer just about any specific questions you have about your business.

There's at least one SBDC in every state. For a list of the centers in your area, visit the Small Business Administration's website at http://www.sba.gov/.
