Register ‘scopes’ Small Biz channel

Wanted: Readers, information suppliers

Site News Early next year The Register is to launch a small business channel. That's right a channel for small businesses. We will concentrate on providing tech-related news, cause that what we do best. We are also looking at information suppliers to link up with, and maybe even doing some reviews.

In the meantime we are kicking off with a link through to our first information supplier, bCentral.co.uk. That's right, Microsoft's portal for small businesses. At the top of our landing page Microsoft is running a competition to win an Acer Tablet PC, with a view to getting sign-ups for its small business newsletter.

Three things about the compo: first, it's designed for UK participants; second, it's designed for small businesses so, if say, you work at CSFB, get one on expenses; and third you need to sign up to Microsoft Passport to participate. You do not need Passport for the rest of the site.

Now scroll down the landing page for access to sundry advice topics for small businesses and spot the deliberate typo.

Finally, if you are working at or own a small business let us know what content you would like to see on The Register's small business channel.

Thanks. ®
