CAMP HILL, Pa., April 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the current medical, social and economic crisis, the data analytics firm Bizminer has launched the LOOK UP! small business assistance initiative (www.bizminer.com/lookup). The company's goal is to provide at least one hundred thousand small business owners with custom industry financial and market intelligence at no cost (www.bizminer.com/small-business-monitor). LOOK UP!'s specially formulated information bundle is designed help small firms assess and navigate their re-entry into local or national markets.
"We are providing this content as a public service to encourage small business owners—and those who depend on the success of their firms—to lift their eyes toward the future during this challenging time," commented Jon Brandow, Bizminer's owner. "To be clear: In no way am I advocating a return to economic activity before it is thoroughly safe for our entire population. But now is the time for small firms to think about how to position themselves for re-entry into post-coronavirus markets at the appropriate time."
The LOOK UP! bundle equips small businesses with operational, financial and local market comparisons to the competition. It includes monthly updates of Bizminer's SWOT-XPRESS series, including customized market data and quantified opportunities and challenges facing any business, all easily developed in just a few minutes. The SWOT-XPRESS also provides a sophisticated estimate of almost any firm's market value. Also included in the bundle—a summary version of Bizminer's Industry Financial series, the company's best-selling product.
The reports are presented though Bizminer's Monthly Small Business Monitor and will help small business owners to:
- enhance their understanding of the financial and market context within which their firms work, and benefit from new insights that Bizminer provides;
- identify and quantify opportunities and challenges in the emerging new market and position themselves to address both;
- build company morale by "looking up" instead of focusing solely on the frustrations and paralysis of the present situation.
"We want to arm small businesses with detailed, actionable information," offered Brandow, "We plan to enlist other firms and business assistance organizations to spread the word. This is good stuff, it's free and we're going to provide it as long as this crisis lasts."
Businesses that sign on to receive the reports will have ongoing access, including refreshed monthly content at no charge for the duration of the Coronavirus crisis. Brandow adds that "Yes, we are a business and a good one. But this public service is the best way for us to help repair the world at this moment."
