Filling a Need for Business Education Materials
“Genealogy-related business owners come to this industry from a variety of backgrounds and with a mix of experience. Because there are multiple aspects to running any business, as well as aspects uniquely applicable to a genealogy-related business, we saw a need to devise a way to allow each business owner to select educational materials specific to their situation,” said Thomas MacEntee, owner of High Definition Genealogy. “Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as hanging out your shingle and starting to perform research for clients. Today’s genealogy professional is faced with making decisions about business structure, what services to offer, how to attract clients and how to compete.”
Real Advice from Real Genealogy Business Owners
“Tapping into the real life experiences of current business owners, we’ve created GenBiz Solutions Guides. Guides are authored by a group of diverse professionals and each examines a relatively narrow topic. This approach allows the genealogy-related business owner to select a guide or multiple guides specific to their unique needs, for a very minimal investment.” continued MacEntee.
GenBiz Solutions Guides are delivered electronically in a digital format; they offer knowledge, practical advice and include specific tools and templates for the business owner to incorporate into their practice.
