Hello OurChurch.Com webmasters,

In these challenging economic times just about everyone is finding it more difficult to make ends meet, especially small business owners. One positive thing, however, is that we are also in a period of great innovation where advances in Internet technology are making it possible for small businesses to reduce costs and increase sales in ways never before possible.

If you own a small business, you'll definitely want to check out the things we're doing for Small Business Month. If not, you'll still find some great stuff in this month's newsletter including a sale on bundles, another funny video, new NE1 templates, and a special coupon just for our newsletter readers.

In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck
