“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, transform the world…”
– Howard Zinn
At GoDaddy, we strive to help you and other small businesses owners succeed in your ventures and live passionately. We realize it’s tough making your dreams a reality, and we want to give you the tools necessary to be confident in the decisions you’re making for your business.
Today, we are pleased to announce the availability of our new, small business owner’s community called the GoGetter Community. It’s all about connecting with other like-minded entrepreneurs, sharing insights, best practices & expertise.
Have a business-related question? We’ve got answers and experts standing by to help you succeed.
Want to catapult your business to the next level? We’ve got mentors available from a variety of industries who have “been there, done that” and are willing to help you succeed.
Want to connect with other industry experts and learn the tricks of the trade? You can connect with other small business owners by creating a profile and searching by location, expertise, or industry!
According to the bureau of labor statistics, over 51% of all new businesses fail within the first 5 years. We are determined to decrease that number, so the GoGetter community has launched with a mentor program with seasoned business professionals ready to help answer your tough business questions, meet with you weekly, and help provide guidance for your business.
“70% of small businesses that receive mentoring survive for five years or more, which is double the rate of non-mentored entrepreneurs”
– Federation of Small Businesses
Finding a mentor & connecting with others
We understand finding the right mentor for your business could be time consuming, and concerning. We’ve taken much of the guess work out of the process. The mentors on the GoGetter site are all professionals who highlight their expertise, and share their professional experience so you can feel confident reaching out and requesting some help could be the best decision you make to drive success for your business. It’s as easy as searching by location, expertise, or industry.
As a small business owner, you have significant decisions to make about your business every day. Some easy, some not so easy. Being a “jack-of-all-trades” is tough when you’re standing up a business, let alone considering expanding into new territory.
The GoGetter Community business discussions can help you make more informed decisions about topics you may not be an expert: managing money, social media marketing, tax implications, etc., We encourage you to create an account and start engaging other members.
You don’t have to be a GoDaddy customer to participate – we want you to succeed as a small business owner, period. Connect with others locally, or in the same industry – we’ve already seen small business owners start up new partnerships!
Give it a try, you’ll be glad you joined!
Whether you’re just starting out, or have owned businesses for 2 decades like many of the members on the site, GoGetter is a place you can feel confident in getting answers quickly, and being part of a community that wants to see you succeed.
