Small Business Resource's New Software Tool Makes It Easy For Small Businesses To Gather Business Intelligence

Share Article

*Information is power; and small businesses needing innovative ideas and news to help generate revenue during this down economy now have free access to the same types of information technology tools that the world's intelligence agencies use.

We will be dropping our printed publication in favor of a web-based only edition.

Outgoing U.S. Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell gave some valuable parting advice to the United States' 16 intelligence agencies, and that same advice works just as well for business owners seeking to raise their visibility and carve more revenue out of a highly-competitive and down market.

According to McConnell's Intelligence Community Directive 501, intelligence officers "have a responsibility to discover information believed to have the potential to contribute to their assigned mission need," and Small Business Resource Ltd. CEO David Davis of is in total agreement.

Mr. Davis operates a news aggregation portal that's a one-stop solution for business people seeking the latest "how to" information or techniques being shared by top entrepreneurs and popular web sites as well as news stories gleaned from around the world on a nearly limitless variety of topics.

"The portal provides all the tools anyone needs to stay informed as well as put the information to work by creating articles, white papers and valuable reports based upon actionable information that is up-to-the-minute," according to Mr. Davis. And in fact, he does exactly that for his other businesses and earns revenues from rewriting and repackaging what amounts to an endless flow of top-quality content.

The site uses the latest RSS Internet technology to acquire relevant feeds from a wide variety of sites and news distribution sources. Users can select the feeds they want to follow. But unlike most other news aggregators, provides users with a way to suggest additional feeds as well as providing a robust search engine to pull highly-targeted information together based upon the user's exact requirements. The site also offers a search engine that specially configured to return links to video files related to the user's search terms.

According to Mr. John Yemma, Editor of the 100 year-old 7 Pulitzer-prize-winning Christian Science Monitor newspaper, "We will be dropping our printed publication in favor of a web-based only edition." Mr. Yemma said that the current news delivery model is "fundamentally broken." The paper will be relying heavily on RSS or Real Simple Syndication.

Mr. Davis believes that RSS technology is under utilized. It's not only about blogs and news delivery, it's also about monetization and brand promotion. And he's not alone:

"At Small Business Resource we don't talk about web 2.0 or 3.0 for that matter. What really matter to small businesses is getting access to valuable information so they can make value added decisions. RSS makes this possible"

"If you do a marketing site and you don't have an RSS feed today you should be fired."
