Welcome to the growing small business research section on Small Business Trends. As your research section editor, please feel free to fire off links to research you think we should include. We have a strong mission here at SBT to serve our readers with relevant and timely research studies and reports. You can send me a link by email (via my profile here) or you can submit your own research studies on the submit form. We review those submissions regularly and post the appropriate studies to the section. We strive to watch the trends and news driving how we, as small biz owners, can more successfully run our businesses. So in this section, you'll find data on how to get into social media, how to leverage government resources, economic reports, and ideas that can help you make decisions in your day-to-day work. You can sign up for our newsletter that updates you on new research we find.
