As a reader of my blog, I'm sure you're aware of my "Definitive Guide to Creative & Alternative Financing Sources.
" The Guide presents 28 unique ways to raise money to start or grow your business.
I knew the Guide was really good (since it took me so long to create and since buyers have continually praised it), but I didn't know just how impactful it would be.
Well, a month ago, CNN found out about the Guide, and a CNN Money Reporter contacted me.
What resulted was a full story on ONE of my creative and alternative financing sources: customer financing.
You can read the article here: http://money.cnn.com/2009/09/08/smallbusiness/barnraising_a_business.fsb/
What I liked most about the article is that Helaine (the reporter) gave numerous examples of customer financings. This will hopefully give you more ideas on how customer financing might be right for your business.
