(Comic) Roaming Freely in the Entrepreneur(s) Zoo

 

It’s a jungle out there.

This may be the only zoo most familiar to those in the startup world – let’s call it the Entrepreneurs Zoo! Just coincidentally, many of the vendors, services and products, we (and other entrepreneurs) use in starting a business have “animal” names. We’ve used many of them, and here is a line up and maybe one of them can help you.

Web Development and Technology

  • HostGator – affordable web hosting solution
  • Safari – easy-to-use browser iDevices OS X Mountain Lion – Comes standard on all Macs
  • Grasshopper – affordable cloud-based phone and IVR solution

Marketing

  • MailChimp – simple interface to send out your email campaigns and build a list.
  • MOO – on-demand business cards, stickers, and stationary to promote your business
  • SurveyMonkey – customizable forms to poll customers and analyze that data

Miscellaneous

  • Shark Tank – TV show with ventures vying for funding
  • Task Rabbit – reliable outsourcing of some of your daily tasks
  • Red Bull – instant energy to keep you up in those long nights

The #entrepreneurfail part of this is that aspiring entrepreneurs may want to just use a service or a vendor without assessing business needs and ROI and end up wasting time and resources.  Make sure you do your due diligence and choose only vendors that will grow your business.
