Welcome to the Pandecta Magazine Resources section. Apart from the tons of handy stuff on our web site, we would also like to point out some off-site resources that you as a business owner might want to check out. This is not a commercial listing of business resources. We do not get paid for adding these links to our site. If you would like a link from here, that is unfortunately impossible, unless we stumble upon your site and decide to share it with our readers. Please do not email us about getting listed here.
General Business Resources
US trademarks & patents
The best way to protect business logos, names, slogans etc. is by registering them as US trademarks.
International intellectual property rights
Check out the World Intellectual Property Organization:
If you need graphic design work done for your business - like logo design or business card design, please check out the "Design Services" tab at the top of this page to see what Pandecta Magazine offers... or simply click here.
Logo design services
Biz-Logo.com is Pandecta Magazine's sister site, focused primarily on logo design but also offering other graphic design services.
Custom business logos
LogoAnts are the logo design specialists. Prices, packages, service and turnaround are some of the best in the online logo design industry. Good value.
Business cartoons & cartoon logos
Make sure that your business logo grabs all the attention. Cartoon logos are often the most eye-catching and most memorable of any type of logo.
Logo repair & logo redesign
If you already have a logo but it's low quality and in need of a professional redraw, the Logo Hospital is a good place to head to.
Logo Design Rank
A site that let's users vote on existing business logos. Interesting to see what the average Internet user thinks of the big brand logos.
Also known as ODP (Open Directory Project). Getting your site listed in this web directory is fairly difficult, but it is important enough for you to spend some time on.
Search Engine Marketing (SEM)
There's no getting around it... your sites need to be listed in the major search engines and they need to rank top 10 for the keywords your customers will type into a search box. Bruce Clay sheds some light.
We switched to BlueHost and we are impressed. Good hosting companies are unfortunately few and far between. BlueHost is not only reliable but they are actually reachable when you have a query or a problem. Good on you BlueHost. Keep it up.
Small Business Help
In the US:
The SBA (Small Business Administration) web site is super helpful. You should also check out business.gov, the official business link to the US government.
In the UK:
Pretty much every bit of small business info you need is somewhere on this site:
The Australian government has a business gateway to goverment info and services. The site also contains comprehensive help and tutorials.
There's also a bunch of info on the australia.gov.au web site.
The links above may contain affiliate tracking codes, resulting in a commission being paid to Pandecta when you make a purchase on one of these web sites. That said, the sites listed here are here for another reason. It's a short list because we link only to the best business resources. Our selection criteria rests on quality, not on financial gain.
