“ The key to a great website is applicability and usability. Are the articles that I am reading, applicable to me, and can I immediately use the material in my business? Inside Small Business is just that for me. Short sharp articles that hit the mark for what I need. It’s not every article but there is something relevant for my small business every time I log on. And then there are the surprise articles that give me, as a small-business owner, pause for thought and an opportunity to grow. ”

“ Octomedia and its media brands are a lifeline for entrepreneurs, start-ups and leaders in small and niche industries. They’re across the pulse on what’s new and trending in business, share valuable content from experts, and give hope when times are tough – particularly during COVID-19. Publications like Inside Small Business and Inside Retail – their websites, e-newsletters and magazines – have been my go-to for feeling inspired and helping to build a thriving business – and I’m honoured to have had the privilege to share some of my own ideas and stories in business. It’s where I recommend all my clients and students follow and engage with! ”

“ What I love about Inside Small Business is the regular newsletter. It's packed full of articles from successful business owners sharing their knowledge in their area of expertise. No matter what stage in business you are at there is always a gold nugget of actionable advice in the newsletter which is great! ”
Vanessa Geraghty - marketing strategist & coach and Founder, Vivacity Marketing
“ I find Inside Small Business to be a great hub of information covering a range of useful and relevant topics for small-business owners. As a small-business owner myself, the thing I find most useful are the Q&As and the “most viewed section”. Often having to manage time and priorities, I find both these sections helpful in navigating my time and energy to the trends/issues/areas of focus that other small businesses are looking at, and where I can potentially achieve the greatest value. The general layout of the site is also user friendly and organises topics clearly. Overall, a really great site. ”
