THE BLOG ENTERPRISE is Jamaica’s first small business news blog on the web devoted 100 percent to the small business market – from business start-ups to established enterprises. We believe that an entrepreneur is a way of living – not just a way to make a living.
Founded in January 2009 by multi-award-winning Caribbean veteran journalist and publicity-marketing specialist Delroy A. Whyte-Hall, THE BLOG ENTERPRISE is becoming the number one choice for Jamaican small business news and information on the net. The average viewer stays on our site for more than 30 minutes at a time. Micro, small-to-medium sized business owners rely on THE BLOG ENTERPRISE because it provides expertly produced content by a professional journalist and industry experts that is informational, practical and compelling.
THE BLOG ENTERPRISE, which is a subsidiary of Whyte-Hall Communications, is published three times per week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and on it you’ll find: technical information on how to run your business; inspirational success stories from entrepreneurs across the country; news and information about small business activities – conferences, workshops, seminars, etc. and associations; small business profiles, and resources that can provide you with the right solutions for your business.
You can view THE BLOG ENTERPRISE right on your computer with just the click of a mouse.
T his is a group for small business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals. It helps connect small businesses with the larger social community. Small business owners can send news, information, promote events, share documents and obtain valuable insight and advice free of charge.
Because your life as an entrepreneur is hectic, THE BLOG ENTERPRISE is available 24 hours a day – 7 days a week. You can bookmark or view its contents whenever it is convenient for you. And best of all, there is no charge to you.
Do you have news you’d like to share with other readers? Is someone in your business got a promotion, won a prize/award? Recently start your business? Is there a business anniversary or milestone coming up? Here’s the place to let us know.
I’m delighted to announce that you can now submit your press releases to us. If approved, they will be published in our small business iNews outlet – THE BLOG ENTERPRISE.
Question: Why are you publishing news releases?
Answer: There’s a lot of important small business news out there – much more than I can possibly cover. We’d love to provide a lot more news and information – and we know you’d love to read more news, too. So we thought we’d let you submit your press releases, subject to being reviewed.
Question: Will you publish everything submitted?
Answer: We will publish only news that is of interest to small businesses, startups and entrepreneurs. Please do not submit press releases that are off-topic or unrelated to small businesses, startups or entrepreneurs.
All submissions will be manually reviewed by me. I will do our best to review them within 48 hours. I reserve the right to choose which news releases to publish. Also, due to time commitments I cannot commit to notify you whether your release has been accepted or not. Please check back at THE BLOG ENTERPRISE after 48 hours.
Question: Does it cost anything to submit a press release?
Answer: This is a free service. It costs you nothing.
Question: I’d like to submit a guest article – is this allowed?
Answer: No, please do not submit guest articles. THE BLOG ENTERPRISE is designed for news – not articles. Please submit press releases and news announcements only. The only exception is that we publish one2one Q&A Biz-Profiles – scheduled only for our Saturday post and on our WEBSITE. If you would like to be profiled, please see our one2one Biz-Profiles for further information.
Question: Wassup? Are you trying to compete with CANANEWS and PRWeb and other news distribution services?
Answer: Ha! We wish! Joking aside, no, we have no intention of becoming a news distribution service at this time. We are not equipped to distribute news as widely as newswires and press release distribution services. This is strictly a community service for the Small Business community.
Question: Where will my press release be published if you accept it?
Answer: If we accept your press release, it will be designated as a “press release” and will appear in THE BLOG ENTERPRISE (on the blog, there are provisions for you to subscribe via eMail or RSS feed).
Question: Where do I submit my press release?
Answer: Submit Press Release to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please allow 48 hours for it to appear. All submissions are reviewed by our editor before they are accepted:
- All press releases, announcements and news stories must relate to small businesses, startups, or entrepreneurs in some way;
- This is a free community service — no payment is requested or accepted;
- Due to the volume of releases I receive, I cannot notify you if your release is accepted or not – I suggest you check THE BLOG ENTERPRISE every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to see if it has been accepted.
All contact information you submit will be published!
