    What’s New

    Trailblazer Writing

    Trailblazer Writing was started with the idea that competitive web marketing must start with the writing – not design. Although copywriting has been around for over 100 years, thinking in this way is an innovative approach. Because good writing, is really just good thinking.

    Small Business Stats

    In the United States, the Small Business Administration sets small business criteria based on industry, ownership structure, revenue and number of employees. For manufacturing companies, this is 1500.

    Industry Canada defines a small business as one with fewer than 100 paid employees and a medium-sized business as one with at least 100 and fewer than 500 employees.

    Marketing Budget

    The typical marketing budget for manufacturing is 3-5% of annual revenue. This means that a small business earning 1 million in revenue could afford to spend $30,000 to $50,000 a year on marketing. This is well within the reach of an annual online marketing campaign.
