It's the MOOsLETTER!
We love the web at MOO, and we've learned a lot about the virtual business world since starting out almost four years ago. In this issue, we thought it would be good to share some tips from our team and our friends.

Help for small businesses with big ideas

Batchblue cards We come into contact with lots of small businesses and we know just how much there is to juggle - from billing and bookkeeping to blogging and online marketing. Always looking for ways to lighten the load we had to share our latest discovery.

Built by the creative crowd at BatchBlue, The Small Business Web is full of pointers to online services, applications and products designed to make business easier. (Even better, some of them are free!)

The folks from BatchBlue tell us more on the blog, but we think their MOO Business Cards (check out the complimentary customer tweets!) speak for themselves.

New Ready Made designs

You can quote me!

Celebrating the start of spring with some fresh new designs, 'You Can Quote Me' and 'Let's Talk' are recent additions to our range of Ready Made Business Cards. A cool and quirky take on the power of language, they're great for networking and as conversation starters.

You Rule!

Is your business literally more hands-on? You Rule! - these Business Cards might be just what you need.Three rulers, measuring in centimetres and inches; useful, smart and sure to be kept.

Make money as a MOO affiliate

Affiliate window If you're a fan of MOO, you probably already pass on your cards to business contacts, colleagues and random people you meet.

But did you know you could be earning money by referring people to moo.com through our Affiliate Program? Sign up to the program and, by featuring a link back to us on your website or in your emails, you could earn 15% commission on every MOO transaction that you generate - that's almost £2/€3 for every pack of Business Cards.

It's (very) easy, just sign-up and start earning!

Get your designs online

Spreadshirt The internet's perfect for turning creativity into cash: handmade jewellery on Etsy, photos on iStockphoto and, as we've discovered, designs on Spreadshirt.

Upload your artwork onto Spreadshirt and earn commission every time your designs are printed on a garment!

Sounds like a good idea to us (and we liked their MOO Business Cards) so we got in touch to find out more.

There's also a special Spreadshirt deal for MOO subscribers (that's you!). Register as a Shoppartner, create an account and place an order in your own user area (“my spreadshirt”) - using the code OWNSHIRT - for £18 off (valid until 30th April).

Vote for MOO!

Webby We've just found out that we've been nominated for a Webby award! Yay!

It's our third year in a row, so we should probably bow out gracefully and let someone else have their moment, but as we've won the People's Voice Award twice already we thought you might miss us if we weren't there!

So, if you like what we do and how we do it, please vote for us and help make us Webby winners again!

And that's all for now,

See you soon,
The MOO Crew
