What Is The Cheapest Shipping Option – USPS, FedEx Or UPS? |
It has been a while since I’ve done a competitive analysis of the various shipping carriers so I thought I’d do a quick update. With the United States Postal Service jacking up their rates every 4-6 months, what used to be the most economical shipping method is now priced inline or even more expensive than some of the more reliable carriers like UPS or FedEx.

Gov 2.0: How to engage your Hispanic fans | SmartBlog On Social Media
Hispanics will soon make up a third of the U.S. population, so it's vital that marketers learn how to reach out to them, says Armando Rayo of Cultural Strategies. Translating ads into Spanish isn't enough, Rayo says. It's important to recognize that Hispanics aren't a monolithic group, so you need to hone your ads to appeal to your target audience's specific cultural and linguistic norms, he notes.

Get Others to Sell for You with Affiliate Marketing : Money :: American Express OPEN Forum
Finding good sales people can be tough, especially for small business owners. Affiliate marketing relies on the idea that, for a percentage of the sales price, many people will be happy to help you sell your products. Companies such as Amazon use affiliates to help interest potential customers in their products on a regular basis, as do many other companies that sell products online. The price you pay for that help can vary—it's typically a percentage, but may be less than five percent or more than fifty—but it is often lower than what you might pay to employ sales help directly.

Affiliate marketing is primarily used to sell products online, simply due to technological constraints. Affiliates use special links that allow you to track which affiliate's efforts led to a particular sale and, in turn, allow you to pay him for his efforts. Many businesses that go through affiliates to help make sales use an affiliate management program such as Clickbank to make the process much easier.

But many have taken the plunge despite the recession, allowing them to diversify their risk and client base in markets abroad. In fact, the U.S. Commercial Service, which helps U.S. companies expand into foreign markets, says that 23% of its clients exported for the first time, entered a new market, or increased their international market penetration in 2009. That's up 3% from 2008.

The challenges – both anticipated and unexpected – are enough for any small- business owner to get cold feet. To ease the process, here are three best ways to expand overseas.
