The US Small Business Administration reported that in 2021 small businesses “gained 9.1 million jobs and lost 8.7 million, for a net increase of 466,607 jobs”. While this is a net positive in terms of job creation it still highlights the fact that over the course of a year 8.7 million jobs which were created by small businesses no longer existed. This is an illustration of the degree of volatility to which small businesses may be subject. As a result a business owner should use every tool available to them to ensure that their business is a success and can continue to generate employment and empower people. This article will break down five innovative tools for businesses which can assist any business owner.

The Really Useful Information Company (TRUiC) has created an incredibly advanced business name generator which is powered by AI technology. Naming a business can be an incredibly difficult step in the process of starting a business as the business name has to convey so much information with as few words as possible. A business name is also a foundational aspect of marketing and business branding which are essential to any successful business. The TRUiC name generator can greatly assist with this task as it produces hundreds of business names based on the keywords which the user enters and the industry which their business operates in. The name generator also checks for availability of the .com URL of the business name to allow for the easy setup of an online presence for a business.

2. Mailchimp

While email marketing is not a new marketing development, the ease and convenience of Mailchimp service is certainly an innovation in the digital marketing space.

Mailchimp allows its users to manage email lists, capture email addresses, analyze email engagement and send out emails on a schedule or on an automatic basis. As a result its users can effectively tailor their email marketing campaigns to be as effective as possible.

The innovation of the tool is its tremendous ease of use even for those with no graphic design experience. The Canva suite uses drag and drop functionality and offers a massive variety of templates for every kind of business need.
