Local entrepreneur publishes small business startup guide

SAULT STE. MARIE - Nevin Buconjic, a local entrepreneur and writer, recently published a small business guide for new entrepreneurs on the Kindle digital ebook platform.

The strategic business advisor with the Ministry of Natural Resources, and former manger of Enterprise Centre Sault Ste. Marie, the small business division of the Sault Ste. Marie Economic Development Corporation, shares real-world tips, advice and strategies gleaned from his 12 years of experience operating small businesses.

Starting Your Own Business: An Entrepreneur's Guide to Starting and Growing a Small Business is available now exclusively for Kindle e-readers (or by using the free Amazon Kindle app on iPad, iPhone, Android, or even your PC/MAC).

The book is geared towards new entrepreneurs and anyone who is considering starting a small business.

It incorporates real examples and insight from his own experience, as well as discussing hot topics like crowdfunding, social media for business and one-page business planning.

"I have been wanting to write this book for many years now. Over the past 12 years I have worked with and assisted hundreds of small businesses, students and entrepreneurs. I am passionate about entrepreneurship and wanted a way to share some of the experiences, mistakes and knowledge I have picked along the way," says Buconjic.

Readers of the book will learn the following and more:

  • What makes entrepreneurs successful
  • How to come up with a great business idea
  • How to use market research to assess your market and competition
  • Where to find the funding you need
  • How to get your business online to maximize success
  • The best tools for marketing and promoting your business on a budget
  • How to harness social media to drive traffic, gain customers and make sales

While originally planning to publish his book the traditional way, Buconjic decided to release it as an ebook after experiencing success in the digital market.

Ebooks also make it possible to include hyperlinks to further information, examples and data sources providing even more value for readers.

In late September, Buconjic released an ebook entitled, 25 Money-Making Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time -
originally one of the chapters from this book.

That ebook has experienced considerable success with close to 6,000 downloads in only two months.
