Business Warrior Helping Deploy Thousands of PPP Loans to SMB’s

Business Warrior Helping Deploy Thousands of PPP Loans to SMB’s

 

Tackling the problem of underserved businesses who are at risk of not receiving funds

 

January 21, 2021 – Business Warrior Corporation (OTC: BZWR), the source for small businesses in America to get more customers, released a streamlined and easy way for small businesses to obtain Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds. The Company, through their partnership with Elev8 Advisors and Hownd, are focused on underserved business owners who are at risk of not receiving funds due to banks prioritizing larger businesses and their customers first.

 

Connecting PPP funds to TRUE small businesses

Congress has passed a second round of stimulus funds, and Business Warrior is determined to make sure the second round of funding doesn’t go like the first. It is widely documented that the majority of funds in the first round of PPP funds went to multi-million dollar organizations with plenty of cash reserves, while true small local businesses suffered. Banks and other organizations involved benefited financially from these “loans” and they focused on the larger deals that benefited their own organizations the most. This resulted in the small business not successfully securing their share before funds ran out.

 

Solving the Problem

BZWR is focused on ensuring all eligible small business owners receive their maximum qualified loan amounts. The Company will help small business owners navigate the PPP process through its partnerships and application process that is 100 percent online, with applications taking less than 5 minutes to complete. The application is available today and will begin processing the week of January 25th, 2021. Additionally, Business Warrior’s newest software offering, Scout, will be bundled with each PPP loan.

This offer to all small businesses applies to those who didn’t get the first round of PPP loans, and there is no designated bank requirement. The application portal may be found here.

“BZWR fights for small businesses as our core value and many businesses and their employees will be left out of PPP again if we don’t act to provide an easy and simple way for them to get the money they deserve” says Jonathan Brooks, President of Business Warrior.

 

A Unified Front To Helping Underserved Businesses

The Company is combining its PPP efforts with Hownd as both have identified a major gap in the current PPP process for many small business owners. Most banks are requiring PPP loan applicants to be a current banking customer as of December of 2020. This gap leaves many small business owners exposed to not receiving funding. Business Warrior’s recent survey of 500 small business owners showed 66% of potentially qualified applicants did not receive a PPP loan last year.

“We’re in agreement on the need to make sure small businesses get the loan amounts they’re entitled to and we’re eager to help,” says Brandon Willey, Founder & CEO of Hownd. “To align with Business Warrior and supplement the extra value they’re providing by helping qualifying brick & mortar merchants generate more customers and revenue, we’re waiving the first 90 days of our standard zero-risk Pay-Per-Visit fees up to $100 for qualifying brick & mortar retail merchants.”

Both BZWR and Hownd are leveraging Elev8 Advisors Group technology for loan fulfillment. With 20 years of banking experience, Elev8 will help ensure the application process is simple, reliable and open to all eligible businesses.

“Elev8 Advisors knows the complexity of the PPP process and we have simplified it so all business owners know with confidence the status of their money. Through our technology platform, blueacorn, businesses of all sizes and types, especially 1099 owners, have access to what they deserve” says Adam Spencer, Managing Partner of Elev8 Advisors Group.

National Partnership with Hownd

Business Warrior Announces Nationwide Partnership with Hownd

Company shares results of “Health of Business Owners Survey”

January 6, 2021 – Business Warrior Corporation (OTC: BZWR), the source for small businesses in America to get more customers, announced their expanded partnership with Hownd® and the results of its first health of small business owners survey. The two companies have been in a pilot program since July 2020 and are now rolling out nationwide to over 6,000 locations. (More details on that partnership below.)

The company conducted a survey regarding the mental and physical health of 500 small business owners. The results are a reflection of the ongoing impacts due to COVID-19 and reveal a major opportunity for technology to help small business owners improve their businesses and personal lives in 2021.

 

The Results (How they felt at the time at the end of 2020 compared to before COVID – Approximately Feb.1, 2020)

  • 57% working more
  • Of the 50% sleeping worse, 82% are stressed about money
  • 34% depressed
  • 40% gained weight since COVID
  • 46% more anxiety
  • 24% drinking more alcohol
  • 57% more stressed

Ability to Stay Open?

  • 1 in 4 say will not survive without PPP funds
  • 65% did not receive PPP funds in the first round
  • 36% don’t expect to receive future PPP funds
  • 45% say it’s going to be tight, but think they’ll survive

At a time when small businesses are making less money, working more, and are more stressed than ever, they need cost-effective solutions that deliver results. See more details about the survey and how Business Warrior is supporting local businesses.

Business Warrior Takes Action with Hownd

Even with the vaccines being deployed, small business owners are facing a harsh winter. With many cities and states requiring a variety of COVID restrictions, small business owners must use the tools and technology available to them to survive these hard times. Business Warrior has a new version of their software being released this month and is announcing their expanded partnership with Hownd to help small businesses get more customers and increase revenues.

The two companies have had some early success with their pilot program and are now rolling out nationwide to over 6,000 locations. Hownd, Inc. provides an effortless and zero-risk software platform that helps local brick and mortar retail businesses generate customer foot traffic and revenue. Hownd makes a merchant’s promotional offers easy for nearby consumers to discover, claim and redeem digitally through email, a merchant’s website, Facebook, the MyHownd® mobile app, digital signage, and their MyHownd WiFi service. The platform is ideal for restaurants and bars; amusements, attractions and entertainment businesses; providers of health and beauty services; lodging; and specialty retail.

Hownd has helped thousands of small businesses generate over $7 million in revenue during the pandemic by enabling them to sell support vouchers and gift cards on the platform. Unlike other platforms, Hownd merchants receive their revenue immediately upon a consumer’s purchase of these offers — a cash lifeline many merchants have relied on to keep their lights on and staff employed. Hownd is zero-risk because they don’t charge a set-up fee, there’s no monthly subscription or contractual commitment, and participating businesses only pay a flat fee when Hownd brings them customers.

Small business owners can take advantage of this partnership and get a boost to their business HERE.

“Business Warrior and Hownd are both focused on helping small businesses get more customers in the most cost effective way imaginable. Our technology paired together is a powerful combination,” said Jonathan Brooks, President of Business Warrior Corporation.

The State of Being a Small Business Owner

The State of Being a Small Business Owner

We surveyed 500 small business owners on the health of their business and their personal lives.

December 29, 2020 Is 2020 over yet?! Working more, sleeping less, and drinking more sums up the state of being a small business owner. Business owners are trading off so much more than they already did, which doesn’t leave much room for reflection and focus on creating the best path for you and your business in 2021. So unlike in years past when January is a chance to jump to conquering new plans for your business, it’s important to pause, reflect, and do a self-health check. 

In fact, self-health is more important than ever for business owners. And understanding where you are at today is critical to establishing a clear vision of 2021.

The Health of Business Owners

We surveyed 500 small business owners. We asked them a series of questions to understand how their business is doing, but also, to understand how they are doing, both mentally and physically.

Here is what we found out about small business owners during the pandemic (surveyed in November 2020):

  • 57% of business owners have spent more time working on their business in 2020.
  • Despite this increase in time worked, 25% of business owners don’t think their business will be able to stay open without receiving additional Payroll Protection Program (PPP) funds.
  • Only 34% of business owners that we surveyed said they received PPP funds this year.
  • 46% said they didn’t expect to receive any more PPP funds before March 1, 2021.

Now, here is what we learned about how 2020 affected small business owners mentally and physically:

  • 34% of business owners reported that their mental health is worse than it was a year ago today.
  • Over 50% of business owners said they are sleeping worse the last couple of months compared to pre-COVID. 
  • Here are the top stressors that business owners said are causing them sleep problems:
    • Stressed about money (82%)
    • Stressed about the health of themselves or loved ones (68%)
    • Stressed about changes in life and business (59%)
    • Stressed about government (58%)
  • Our survey also showed that 34% of business owners are feelings depressed from COVID’s effect on their business
  • Lastly, 24% of business owners reported they are drinking more since COVID hit the United States. 

Acknowledgment of Your Own Health in 1 Minute

If you are reading this and thinking “wow that’s how I feel…” then know aren’t alone. Being a business owner became extra complicated in 2020 and many owners faced unheard of challenges. Being aware and honest about your own health is critical before just moving into 2021, especially if you have employees. Your team relies on you to continue being strong. We’ve simplified our survey questions into a 1 minute quick self-check.

1 minute business owner check-in: 

  • When you wake up in the morning, are you grateful? 
  • Are you keeping your commitments to yourself and others? 
  • Are you exercising at least 30 minutes a day…even if it’s just a walk? 
  • Is your family or your loved ones staying connected to your experiences, both good and bad?
  • Are you clearing space in your schedule to reflect and focus on what you can control to keep your business moving forward? 

Now just take an extra minute to reflect on your answers. You may find yourself aligned with other business owners in all responses or just a few, but it’s important that in order to succeed in 2020, you must know where you stand today.

There’s Help in Community

The good news is that business owners are resilient! Entrepreneurship has taught all business owners true grit. However, before 2020 relying on each other and technology wasn’t always a business owner’s first nature. Now is the time to shift and realize that in a community of business owners, we are all stronger together than separate. We can lean on each other for support and guidance on “what to do next.”

Business Warrior sees what is going on in the U.S. with small businesses and we have decided to make a major update to our software to help small business owners decide what to do next. After months of development and getting feedback from our current subscribers, we are getting ready to release our customer growth education product in early January. It’s an inexpensive way for small businesses to hit their marketing goals and get more customers.

For less than $50 per month, it does the job of 5 different softwares and a full time marketing employee (There’s a free version as well that provides a ton of value to a business in earlier stages). At a time when small businesses are making less money, are working more, and are more stressed than ever, they need cost effective solutions that deliver results. You may sign up for early access and receive a $240 discount for a full year.

Whether you decide to use Business Warrior for help or not, we ask that all business owners take the time to self-care as not only are your customers and employees rooting for you, we all are.

Looking for ways to get more customers immediately?

Business Warrior helps small business stimulus plan approved by Congress

Business Warrior helps small business stimulus plan approved by Congress

Small businesses are spending 148% more time on the Company’s software platform

December 22, 2020 – Business Warrior Corporation (OTC: BZWR), the source for small businesses in America to get more customers, shares how their new software coming in January is coupled with the small business stimulus plan just approved by Congress. This is the company’s largest software release since going public through a reverse merger in January.

Many businesses didn’t receive Payroll Protection Plan (PPP) money the last time and most of them didn’t even apply. In order for the funds to be forgiven for the last round, companies were to spend at least 75% of the funds received on payroll. This helped the economy and helped keep people employed during this horrific time, but it still left a lot of businesses coming up short as things worsened.

“Whether companies received assistance or not, we found that most small businesses did not use the time or money to improve their business. Instead, people were just trying to survive and hold on to what they had. Our new version of Business Warrior helps each small business if they have funding or not,” said Rhett Doolittle, CEO of Business Warrior Corporation.

The key to receiving any funds whether it’s PPP, Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL), grants or investment money is to leverage the funds to put the business in a better position than it was before receiving the funds and not just buy time to survive. Many business owners spent the money, borrowed money, cut costs, or went into more debt just to survive. The new version of the Business Warrior software puts small businesses in a better position to survive during the pandemic and come out even stronger when things get better. 

Congress has just approved a second stimulus package that includes about $325 billion in business relief, including about $275 billion for more PPP funding. Companies that received money the first time will be eligible to receive funds again. Business Warrior’s next version of their software is designed to help businesses improve results while on a tight budget and helps them adapt quickly to the ever evolving rules and regulations.

Business Warrior released the first version of their software in December of 2019, and made it free to small businesses when the pandemic hit the United States. Since then, they’ve had thousands of new subscribers join the platform and they’re tracking what’s working and what is not working for small businesses operating during this pandemic. The company has seen a 148% increase in subscriber’s time spent on the platform in the last 3 months, which shows that businesses are looking for ways to improve their business.

“This next version of Business Warrior will improve small business performance and make it easier for them to get more new customers. The small business stimulus, the vaccine, and our updated software are all a boost to our economy and the help small businesses need,” said Doolittle.

The company will be announcing an exact release date of the new version of Business Warrior before the end of the year, but businesses can sign up early here.

Business Warrior Positioned for Massive Growth in 2021


Business Warrior Positioned for Massive Growth in 2021

The company hosted its annual results call and outlined their strategy for the next year

 

November 13, 2020 – Business Warrior Corporation (OTC: BZWR), the source for small businesses in America to get more customers, announced its annual results on Thursday November 12, 2020. The company showcased their year in review with highlights including their growing Marketplace revenue, subscriber growth rate increase by 129%, raising over $265,000 of friendly capital and the completion of their 3a10.

These milestones were accompanied with a review of the financial performance which outlined their year-over-year revenue decrease as the company transitioned to its current business model. In the new model,  Business Warrior owns 100% of their intellectual property giving them much higher enterprise value and full control of their software-as-a-service (SaaS) product. Here are some key performance indicators showing they’re in line for consistent growth going forward:

  • YoY subscriber growth increased by 129% with October resulting in 368 in new subscribers, it’s highest organic growth month since launch. 
  • Cost per new subscriber decreased by 50%
  • Advertising: Average cost per lead is outperforming expectations
  • Sales closing ratio is as high as 50% 
  • Increasing demand for upgraded paid plans

Annual Financials

The company shared that due to the shift to a SaaS business model, it experienced an increase to its net loss from $126,112 to $687,161. This net loss was a result of the change to the company’s business model and development costs to launch their own product. Revenue was a change of $1,060,053 in the fiscal year ending in August of 2019 to $386,087 in 2020. The decrease in revenue was a result of the strategic shifts in the current business model in order to set up the company for higher revenue, increased profitability, and maximum enterprise value. 

“We made some bold moves in order to create long-term value for our subscribers, employees and shareholders. We knew we had to go through some short term pain with a negative impact to our revenues, but we’ve weathered the storm and our monthly growth rate is back on track. Now we control our own destiny with 100% ownership of our intellectual property. We have the product, the team and the strategy to become the source for small businesses across the United States.” said Rhett Doolittle, CEO and Chairman. The company will be posting their annual financial statements in the coming days.

Improvement to Cost of Goods Sold

Now that the Company owns the software product, the Cost of Goods sold for each new subscriber is much lower than the prior year when the Company was reselling outside software solutions. The lower costs and control of the product experience makes the new business model much more scalable. The Company has built a scalable and highly profitable product, with a sales funnel from a new lead to a paid subscriber.

Small Business Subscribers Seeing Great Results

The company is seeing positive results for its paid subscribers who have subscribed to an upgraded marketing package. The company creates professional advertising videos which are launched onto Facebook, Instagram and Google  in order to get their subscribers more customers. The company stated that their marketing packages are outperforming industry standards by an average of 200%. Business Warrior is expanding these services due to the increase in demand and positive results.

Positive Outlook

The company outlined its path for a positive future. They’re launching a new premium software product in January of 2021 at a lower monthly price, giving free subscribers and easy point of entry. This is a major growth opportunity for the company because it fills a current gap in their product offering and they expect their conversion rate to be much greater than their higher priced solutions. This lower priced SAAS product will also provide an additional path to upgrade to their higher priced solutions. The company will be announcing more details around the new product at the end of the month.

Small Business Holiday Checklist

Small Business Holiday Checklist

7-steps to set you and your small business up for success this upcoming holiday season!

November 12, 2020 – Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday are just a couple weeks away.

If you’re a business owner and felt uneasy reading that sentence, don’t panic quite yet. We’ve created a small business holiday checklist to prepare you for the upcoming season. 

This holiday season will be unlike any other for small business owners. With Covid-19 guidelines still in place, business owners are having to think outside the box in order to have a successful end of the year. 

By following the 7 steps below, you’ll learn key ways to navigate this unprecedented holiday season. The tasks in this small business holiday checklist are focused on improving the effectiveness of your digital presence before the season hits. With more customers researching and shopping online this year, it is crucial that your customers can easily and quickly find your business information.

Many business owners have already started their holiday plans by now. However, no matter how far along you are in planning for the holidays, this checklist will serve as an easy guideline for your business.

1. Promote your holiday offers – for free! 

This is one of the most expensive times of the year to try and get advertisements launched. Instead of fighting for limited ad space, capitalize on your free advertising platforms! 

First, update your listings with your holiday promotions on Facebook, Yelp, and most importantly, Google My Business. Not only does Google My Business update your digital presence across Google Search and Maps, but it also allows you to insert product listings for free! Keeping your Google account fresh is a great way to stay on top of your small business digital presence without spending too much time. 

Your customers are already looking for you online. Get your special offers in front of them – at no cost to you!

2. Review your website’s page speed

Holiday traffic doesn’t just affect physical storefronts, it can affect your website’s page speed. Before the holiday traffic comes, make sure that your website is ready to handle it! 

You wouldn’t want a slow shopping experience in your physical store. Why should your website be any different? Most of the time, your website is the first impression your potential customers get of your business. This is especially true during Covid-19.

A slow-loading website negatively affects your chance of making a conversion. Studies have shown that 25% of visitors will leave a website if it takes longer than 4 seconds to load. 

Check your website’s performance score on Business Warrior and see where you can improve!

3. Set your business hours for the holidays

Make sure your business finalizes the specific days and hours you plan to be open during all of the upcoming holidays.

Then, once you’ve decided on your holiday hours, make it public. Remove the guess work for your customers by updating your social media, website, and listings with all of your holiday hours. Here’s how to set your holiday hours on Google My Business, Yelp, and Facebook

How to set your holiday hours on Google My Business:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business.
  2. If you have multiple locations, choose the location you’d like to manage.
  3. Click the Special hours section.
  4. Click Confirm hours next to an upcoming holiday,  or click Add new date to choose a different date.
  5. Enter the opening and closing times for that day.
  6. Slide the circle to Closed to indicate that the location is closed all day.
  7. If you’re open 24 hours, click Opens at and select 24 hours from the dropdown menu that appears.
  8. If you enter closing hours past midnight, make sure to set them properly.
  9. When you’ve finished entering all of your special hours, click Apply. Your special hours will appear to customers on Google only for the designated days.

How to set your holiday hours on Yelp:

  1. Login to the Yelp for Business app.
  2. Go to Business Information and select Special Hours.
  3. Mark your business as closed for the day or open during a window of time.
  4. Special hours are on a day-by-day basis. Be sure to add each day where your hours are going to be different than regularly listed.

How to set your holiday hours on Facebook:

  1. Click About on the left side of your Page.
  2. Then go to Edit Page Info.
  3. Click the Hours tab at the top.
  4. Add your hours and click Save Changes.

4. Finalize your holiday marketing strategy

With Black Friday right around the corner, your business needs to have its marketing plan ready to launch. 

First, come up with a budget for your marketing plan – and stick to it! It can be easy to overspend this time of year, which makes it even more critical that your business has done the proper planning beforehand. Once you’ve set your budget, begin planning the special offers you want to promote.

Then, you’ll want to create any corresponding assets to go with your campaign. If you use a design team for your advertisements, you’ll want to get design requests in as soon as possible. This is typically the busiest time of the year for graphic designers. 

Understandably, this is an expensive season to launch advertisements. Be sure that any ads you launch are done efficiently. Research efficient campaigns like remarketing campaigns to get the most bang for your buck.

5. Review and update any Covid-19 guidelines for your business

Due to the pandemic, this year’s shopping season is going to be a little different. Your audience wants to know what to expect from your business before they become customers this holiday season. 

First, consider the changes the pandemic has brought to holiday shopping and brainstorm how you can remain successful. Many small business owners have made the following changes for the holidays:

  • Boost online sales capabilities
  • Implement touchless transactions in stores
  • Offer local delivery, where possible

Then, use your digital presence to inform customers what to expect. Update your listings with any new changes or special offers your business is implementing to help your customers navigate this unusual holiday season.

Don’t let Covid-19 be the reason your business has a less than stellar holiday.

6. Take the time to research industry and competitor trends

Just as you should know all the ins and outs of your own company, you should take the time to know more about your competitors.

Find out what your competition is offering with their holiday promotions. Do your best to learn from your competitors. If you can assess what worked and what didn’t for your competitors, you can use this knowledge to create more value for your own business. 

Lastly, take it a step further by doing some industry research. Expand your scope and look at what others in your industry are doing outside of your market. The more information you gather for your company, the better!

7. Participate in Small Business Saturday

Creating special offers and promos for Black Friday has become a requirement for businesses. However, it can be difficult to capture the attention of your audience when industry giants are launching expensive campaigns just about everywhere you look.

Luckily, the popularity of Small Business Saturday has grown every year as consumers are learning the importance of small businesses in their community. 

To capitalize on this, think about creating an offer specifically for  Small Business Saturday. Again, this is something you should research by looking at industry and competitor trends. 

Preparing your business for the holiday season is no easy task. While following this checklist will help set your business up for success, this time of year can still be seriously overwhelming. 

Book a free meeting with one of our business experts if you’re looking for further support. We will work with you to answer questions or offer guidance to make sure your business is ready for whatever the holiday season throws at you!

Getting Found Online as a Service Area Business

Getting Found Online as a Service Area Business

Read our 4 free tips to put your service area business into overdrive

October 22, 2020 – Being found online as a Service Area Business has a major effect on your ability to grow your business. But why is it so difficult? Google My Business defines a Service Area Business (SAB) as “a business that visits or delivers to customers directly, but doesn’t serve customers at its business address.” Without having a physical storefront for customers, SAB owners heavily rely on “word-of-mouth” marketing. Continue reading this blog to find out how SAB owners can turn their referral business into a customer-generating machine.

While having a strong referral business is a legitimate business model, there are always ways to earn more revenue. The most efficient way to help grow your “word-of-mouth” revenue is to build a strong digital presence.

In this blog, we are going to cover 4 easy ways for service area business owners to take control of their digital presence. Read more to learn how you can put your Service Area Business into overdrive!

Getting More Customers

When people think about local businesses, they typically think of the traditional “brick and mortar” styles of small business. Doing so leaves out the large number of small businesses that do not have a storefront. SAB owners must rely on their referral business to find new customers. By following the next 4 tips, you can strengthen your digital presence to support your referral business and get you even more customers. 

Business Warrior specializes in getting Service Area Businesses More Customers

It Starts with Your Website

The first way that SAB owners can get more customers is by improving their website. When customers visit your website, it should accurately represent your brand and the value your company provides. Here are a couple easy ways to improve your website and build trust with customers:

  • Update your website with relevant content
  • Keep accurate contact information and hours on your website
  • Install remarketing pixels on your website
  • Increase your web page loading speed
    • A faster web page leads to more sales

Be Found on Google! 

Another action Service Area Business owners can take to get more customers is by accurately setting up your Google My Business account. Google My Business is a free tool for business owners to manage their online presence across all of Google’s platforms (Maps, Search, etc.). 

While most of the account management is fairly straightforward on Google My Business, there are some tricky areas that SAB owners must be aware of in order to be listed accurately. The most important piece of setting up your My Business account is entering your business location. It’s critical that you leave this blank. Instead, you will add your own service areas that are specific to the cities that you work in. 

By setting up your Google My Business account accurately, you will be able to help customers find your business and begin communicating the value of your business.

Reputation Matters

The next step that SAB owners must take to get more customers is staying on top of replying to customer reviews. Whether it is a negative or a positive review, it’s crucial that you respond to reviews. By doing so, your online reputation will improve and you will build trust with your customers. 

With service area businesses not having a physical storefront, customer reviews play an even bigger role when customers are looking to hire your services. Keep this form of communication open with customers and you will see higher rated reviews come in. 

Advertising Your Business 

Ultimately, the most effective way to get your business in front of customers is by launching ads. By completing the steps above, you will be able to launch your advertisements much more efficiently. The data tracking pixel on your website will collect valuable website traffic information that you will use to develop and launch your ads. By using the feedback you receive from customer reviews, you will be able to learn more about who your audience really is and what value they are looking for. 

SAB owners have a unique challenge when it comes to listing and marketing their business online. It can be difficult for SAB owners to take the time to properly list and manage their digital profile, especially when time is as valuable as it is to small business owners. By completing the steps in this blog, customer referrals will practically generate themselves! Your network of customers will grow, which will lead to more “word-of-mouth” referrals for your SAB.

Business Warrior Announces Completion of 3a10

Business Warrior Announces Completion Of Their 3a10

The company also announces three months of revenue growth from the Marketplace

October 21, 2020 – Business Warrior Corporation (OTC: BZWR), the source for small businesses in America to get more customers, announces the completion of their 3a10 and continued growth in their Marketplace. The company issued 5,650,035 shares of stock in a 3a10 transaction, which is now complete. Additionally, the company is seeing continued growth from their Marketplace services with three months in a row of increased revenue from that channel.

 

Completion of the 3a10

The company cleared $83,512 in debt through the process of the 3a10. The debt was from professional services that Business Warrior utilized in the early stages of the company. The remainder of the 40,000,000 shares that were previously reserved, will be released back to the Company and will not be issued. 

 

“The 3a10 was a useful mechanism to clean up our balance sheet. This was a small part of our long term  financing strategy. As always, we are focused on consistent revenue growth, a valuable product for our customers, and constantly adding new subscribers to the Business Warrior software. That should result in positive momentum for the BZWR share price” says Rhett Doolittle, Chairman and CEO of Business Warrior. 

 

Three Months of Revenue Growth From Marketplace Services

The company’s financial plans continue to build momentum as the Marketplace services produced three months in a row of revenue growth. Additionally, the Marketplace services have an average revenue per subscriber of $275 per month since the launch of the products in mid-July 2020, which is much higher than the $150 per subscriber the company originally projected when launching the Marketplace.  

 

“We remain extremely diligent on delivering products that are scalable to the business and valuable to the small business community. We are making inroads to a market that is mostly ignored. This market of business owners with a marketing budget of less than $500 per month deserves a better way to get more customers, and that’s Business Warrior,” states Doolittle.

Business Warrior Announces Six Months Straight of Subscriber Growth

 

Business Warrior Announces Six Months Straight of Subscriber Growth

The company proves their ability to convert free subscribers into paid monthly recurring plans

October 13, 2020 – Business Warrior Corporation (OTC: BZWR), the source for small businesses in America to get more customers, announces six months in a row of subscriber growth (March thru September). The rate at which new businesses have subscribed to the platform has increased by 300% per month since March, which shifted when the company made enhancements to their platform to help small businesses during COVID. Additionally, the company added a new suite of solutions to their software platform in July when they launched their Marketplace. Revenues generated from the Marketplace have increased consistently since July and this continues to be a major growth channel for the company.

Consistent growth in subscriber base combined with continuous monthly revenue growth from their marketplace products sets them up for long term success. Business Warrior is able to take a free subscriber on their software and upgrade them into paid products. These positive results indicate that the company is able to execute on their fundamentals, while they continue to scale operations and grow revenues.

Marketing Solution Excels with Video Advertising

The company’s best performing solution in the Marketplace is their Marketing Plus package. This is a low cost entry level marketing solution that is priced for small businesses. For just $249 per month, businesses are able to get short professionally produced videos for advertising. Custom video advertisements are typically unaffordable to small businesses, yet Business Warrior continues to bring solutions to the small business community that were previously only available to large corporations with large budgets.

The company has been in beta testing with the video advertising feature since August and is now deploying the service to all subscribers who upgrade to either Marketing Plus or the Warrior Pro plan. The videos are built to deliver brand awareness, drive new leads, and boost sales conversions for the subscriber.   

“Small Businesses need a complete arsenal of tools available to compete in today’s marketplace. Videos are becoming table stakes for local businesses to showcase their services and talents. Our affordable pricing combined with video advertising, presents one of the most valuable ways a small business can improve their toolset to get more customers” says Jonathan Brooks, President of Business Warrior.

In addition to their organic subscriber and marketplace growth, Business Warrior is expanding their reach with these new partnerships:

  • LashAnarchistwhich has a large and loyal social media presence, Business Warrior is offering it’s plans to support lash business owners and salons. This partnership is one of many for Business Warrior which is concentrating on niche high growth industries for its sales channels.
  • OTC PR Wire – in which Business Warrior offers marketing and website services supporting public companies. The partnership leverages Business Warrior’s technology and resources.
