Continuing our week of blog posts in honor of ‘Small Business Week’ in the US, we’ll be blogging about small businesses and the things they wish they’d known, ways to promote yourself, and ways to get – and stay – motivated.

What’s in a name?
In Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare’s famous heroine Juliet passionately asks:
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet.”
Sadly, the same …Continue reading this article…
It’s ‘Small Business Week’ in the USA, celebrating, helping and promoting independent small businesses. A small business ourselves – all be it much bigger than when we started – we get excited to hear about anything promoting smaller companies. So this week, we’ll be blogging about those that have started their own business, things they wish they’d known, ways to promote yourself, and ways to get – and stay – motivated.
Getting started; making it happen
Every business has to start somewhere – even ours. From big players like Google and Microsoft, to the local restaurant or bakery on your block, every business began with an idea. The guys at the99percent.com (from the creators of Behance) …Continue reading this article…
WOW! We’ve had an overwhelming response to our ‘Classic’ paper contest and are now really quite spoiled for choice. We really underestimated how many of you would have so many ideas, thank you!
As to not keep you waiting any longer, we’ve narrowed the 150+ entries down to a shortlist – although our short list is actually quite long! We’re going to continue to battle it out at MOO HQ to decide on the ultimate winner, but in the meantime we’d like to give a few extra …Continue reading this article…
At MOO we’ve always considered creativity important, and we’re constantly amazed at the creativity of our customers.
As you know, we share ideas through our blog and in the MOOsLETTER (you can sign up in the box on the right). We also share speedy links we’ve spotted on Twitter – and keep a long-term library of links on Delicious.
Part of the reason we like to share all this, is because – like you – we know ideas don’t just generate themselves! We can all use a little inspiration sometimes.
As we collected ideas for the MOO Ideas Book we were blown away by how many of our customers create jewellery, sweet treats or t-shirts to sell. Some of you own a shop or café, whilst others own online stores – either custom built, or created with the help of websites like Etsy or Dawanda.
With this is mind we thought it’d be a great idea to catch up with our friends at online T-Shirt printers, Spreadshirt, to ask for their advice about using your creative talents and passion to make money through their online store.
Kathrin, Spreadshirt’s Shop Partner Marketing Manager kindly answered our questions, with some great tips we thought …Continue reading this article…
Are you always looking for new and different ways of promoting yourself or your business?Well, look no further – the MOO Ideas Book is here!
What is the MOO Ideas Book?
The original “real life” MOO Ideas Book (printed by our friends at Blurb) has been such a smashing success when MOO has been on the road at various events, we thought we’d share it with everyone. The book …Continue reading this article…
We just spotted these cards by mrloofer in the MOO Flickr Pool.
If you don’t want to use MOO’s range of flexible templates, you can always design your own back side to your card. These wonderful Business Cards from West Palm Beach Photographer Alan Lougher were made using MOO’s upload feature for the “details” side.
MOO’s upload feature allows you to upload a JPG or PDF for the “details” side of the card, allowing you to use your own colours, fonts, logos etc…, making them truly unique!
Oh, and it looks as though Alan has already blogged about his cards over on his blog – www.alanlougher.com
The web is full of social networks. Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, Bebo, LinkedIn, XING, and now… Google Buzz.
Google launched their own foray into the world of social networking last week (somewhat a little later than it’s search rival Yahoo!) with what seems like little concern for privacy, but aptly a lot of Buzz.
It’s time to put down that sticky glue-gun, fasten the lids on your favourite pot of glitter and tidy away the beads, buttons and bows – the MOO MiniGift Box Competition is over.
Thank you to everyone who took part, but the deadline for the competition has now passed and the judges are forming their opinions on the finalists, ready to give the results in January 2010.
In case you’d forgotten (or perhaps didn’t know) the competition is being judged by MOO’s very own Product Designer (Paul) and Creative Director (Denise) along with Michael Craig – Design Director at Etsy.
Every entry we received was unique, and truly creative. The judges have got some tough decisions to make in awarding the …Continue reading this article…
