When is B2B Business Cash Needed?

In business we find that no matter the size cash is needed for some situations. It is not always necessary to make a large loan when a small amount is needed. It has been found that at times a business person maybe traveling for the company and they need money for such things as meals, tips, cab fares, and the like. Also a company representative may need to purchase a sample item while at a trade show to bring back or they may want to purchase some items for everyone in the office. That is why certain companies have made it their business to set up B2B Business cash advances. The process is so very simple that most business owners have a special number so when they make their call the B2B Business cash advance is automatically put into their bank account. Payment is easy as well because with this kind of advance the money is taken out of the same account when time is due.

The cash advance system ranges from a small loan of $500 to a larger amount around $3,000. There are multiple companies that deal in this type of loan. The truth is you do not even have to tell them why you need the money. The B2B Business cash network is increasingly growing all across the United States and in foreign countries. You can obtain money from foreign banks just as easily as you can from an American bank.

The small business person should go online and do a search for cash advance to find the best rate along with the time period to pay back the cash advance. The list of these companies is very long but it is made simple for the consumer in the search engine. I recommend companies such as Cash Advance, Payday Advance, Sonic Payday, Coastline Credit LTD, United Cash Loans, and AmeriLoan because they are all reliable, no collateral is needed, and the quick easy method of getting your cash on line saves time. Everyone is busy today so time is important as it is said “time is money.” Cash on hand is vital in some situations a B2B Business cash loan saves time and money.

The importance of obtaining a B2B Business cash loan is vital at times to keep some business persons up and running. A business may have invested the most of the capitol on supplies to finish a major project that would bring in enough revenue to keep the business going.

The problem not enough cash to meet payroll in order to get this project going it is necessary to meet payroll. American Express and Visa have both created a purchasing card that when used a business owner can use this card as cash in their account. The account then can be used for payroll or even more supplies if need be. This form of B2B Business cash is getting to be one of the most popular methods of obtaining cash for those little business emergencies without the hassle of going to your local bank and borrowing every time a need pops up.

Visa conducted one of the largest studies on purchasing card benchmark back in 2005. The use of ready cash has grown in leaps and bounds. The use of this ready cash has been used by some executives to purchase automobiles, parties on yachts, expensive gifts for clients, and a variety of other not needed but much enjoyed items. The use of the B2B Business Cash has also saved smaller business from going out of business, helped them to grow, and made sure that they could remain sound.

The smaller business normally uses the on line sites for quick cash. The mid-size and larger business prefers the cash cards offered by companies such as Visa and American Express. They have accessibility to larger amounts of cash, each one of their executives can have their own card with a limit if the company so deems and the interest rates are normally pretty good. The B2B Business Cash has really become a success in modern business practices. The report discovered that about 85% of respondents increased purchasing power with the use of the B2B Business cash plan offered by these credit card companies. This is really a purchasing power that all new business people should consider. Those who have been in business should investigate the power of cash on hand without a hassle.

Sonic Versus Mario

Even though Mario is ten years older, a very good case can be made for Sonic, when it comes to the title of “Most Popular Video Game Character” of ALL TIME!! Let look at the “Tale of the Tape”:

Sonic from Sega, is a blue anthropomorphic (changes shape) hedgehog with the ability to run faster than the speed of sound; his talent for speed forms a large part of the game play of the series. He is 15 years old. Sonic has been described as being “like the wind.” He is noted for being heroic, adventurous, and free-spirited. He enjoys relaxation, but is never one to rest in the face of injustice. He is extremely benevolent, and would willingly put himself at risk for others, taking on any challenge that confronts him without hesitation. Throughout his 15 years of existence, Sonic has never been linked to any job he is always collecting jewelry, so access to funds is not a problem for him.

Mario from Nintendo, now at the ripe old age of 25, is more of a “George Foreman” type, Mario is always portrayed as being a kind-hearted and brave hero. He helps those in need without any hesitation. Despite his status as a great hero, Mario is very humble. His cheerful personality and love of life make him a very approachable video game character. He also has a love of pasta and pizza, as the stereotypical Italian does. Mario is suppose to be a plumber by trade, but in all his years I don’t recall him ever working on any “plumbing” jobs, but always in the “rescue business” saving princess’ or Mushroom kingdoms from Large “Dino” type animals.

Based on these descriptions, they appear to have more in common than one might originally have thought.

Sonic’s speed would be his biggest asset in a match up with Mario while Mario counters with his tremendous jumping ability and Mario also carries a BIG HAMMER. Maybe this should be a “Steel Cage” match? LOL

Mario counters with his experience and his “jumping ability” which would be the deciding factor I believe in this battle, as he would continue to stomp on Sonic’s head. Now on to the “Game breakdown”:

MARIO

1. Donkey Kong

2. Mario Bros

3. Super Mario Bros

4. Super Mario Bros 2

5. Super Mario Land

6. Super Mario Bros 3

7. Super Mario World

8. Super Mario Land 2

9. Super Mario Land 3

10. Super Mario Bros DX

SONIC

1. Sonic the Hedgehog

2. Sonic 2

3. Sonic 3

4. Sonic & Knuckles

5. Sonic CD

6. Sonic 3D Blast

7. Sonic Adventure

8. Sonic Adventure 2

9. Sonic Hero’s

10. Sonic Spinball

After reviewing the above “tale of the tape”, it is my conclusion that the winner of a contest between these two behemoths would be Mario by a Knock Out. I believe that his perseverance and stamina would wear down Sonic and render Sonic’s one advantage (his speed) worthless.

The Sound of Business – Part I I

Creating a ‘kick ass’ Sonic Personality© for your business requires that
your business have a personality in the first place. Of course every
business has one, whether you are aware of it or not, and this is a real
danger. Your customers’ understanding of who you are, and what you
do, as a business, may be very different from the vision you have of
yourself. This can be a very serious problem for owner-managed
businesses, where the personality of the entrepreneur oft times gets
substituted for the personality of the business – big mistake! So what’s
the first step in crafting a marketable business personality?

What Business Are you Really In?

OK kids, its story time. Back in the day, the railroad barons were the
most powerful business leaders in the country. They had the money, the
power, and the political ‘shlep’ (that’s drag for the uninitiated) to do pretty
much whatever they wanted. Today railroads are a depressed industry.
So what happened? Simple, they didn’t know what business they were
really in.

If you could have asked Leland Stanford or Collis P. Huntington, what
business they were in, they would have most likely answered, ‘the
railroad business’. And in the long run, that was their downfall. Instead,
they should have thought of themselves as being in ‘the transportation
business’ and if they did, they surely would have used their money,
power, and influence to control the emerging automobile, trucking, and
airline industries.

Before you can craft a Sonic Personality© you first must understand who
you are, what you do, and why you do it better than the other guy. If you
can answer those three questions clearly, then you have the beginning
of a coherent business personality that must exist before you can have a
Sonic Personality©.

Focus On One Core Value

One of the hardest things for entrepreneurial businesses to do is to
focus on one core value. This may sound, on the surface, to be contrary
to the lesson learned from the railroad barons, but it isn’t. Your core
value focus has to be broad enough to be able to sustain your business
through the onslaught of competition and fast moving technological
change. When the railroad barons focused on just one form of
transportation they let all the other transportation opportunities slip
through their fingers and ultimately overtake them.

Most accountants and bankers will tell you to ‘stick to your knitting’ and
not let yourself be spread too thin with secondary initiatives. This is
generally good advice, however there is a fundamental difference
between going off on a tangent and sticking to your core values.
Knowing who you are, what you do, and why you do it better than the
competition will help you keep your focus while at the same time allow
you to critically determine whether new opportunities are ones that you
should pursue.

Create Definition: Lift and Separate

So far I have managed to avoid using the term, brand, because it is
generally misunderstood and ignored by most owner-managed
businesses. Substituting ‘personality’ for ‘brand’ puts the notion of brand
in context. Think about it. You may have thought your business doesn’t
relate to branding concepts, but you’ve accepted, or at least are
intrigued by the idea, that your business needs a clearly defined
personality.

Al Ries and Jack Trout have written numerous books on branding and
marketing, including ‘The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing.” One of the
lessons to be learned from this book is ‘The Law of Opposites’. Simply
stated, unless you’re the ‘top dog’ in your industry, you have to define
who you are in contrast to the industry leader. This is not dissimilar to
The Theory of Contrary Thinking.

The example sometimes used to explain The Theory of Contrary
Thinking is Tulip Mania. When tulips were first introduced to Holland in
the middle to late sixteenth century, people fell in love with them. By the
early 1600s, an exchange market had been created that dealt with tulip
futures. Similar to what happen in the Roaring 20s, everyone got
involved in purchasing tulip futures for ridiculous prices, until some wise
guy yelled SELL! Panic set-in and like in the 1920s, the market
collapsed. The moral of the story is simple; if everyone is doing it, you
better do the opposite.

By defining your business in contrast to the industry leader, you create a
separate and distinct business personality that gives your audience an
alternative to the ‘big guy’. You no longer are a second banana ‘wannbe’
imitator, but rather a distinctive company with your own image,
strengths, advantages and of course, personality.

Customers Are An Audience

Finally, this distinctive personality needs to be communicated to your
audience, and you’ll notice I’ve called your customers an audience,
because that is exactly what they are. If you think in terms of audience, it
will open up a whole new understanding of communication techniques
and media, that will lead to better audience recognition, acceptance,
and ultimately sales. Now we have to give your finely crafted personality
a voice. Tune-in next time for ‘How to Give Good Sonic Personality©.’
