Share ways to avoid business disasters

avoid business disaster

Business Owners:
What do you do when–
…a hurricane hits?
…you’re a victim of identity theft?
…your hard drive crashes? 
…a principal of the company dies suddenly?
…an employee sues you for discrimination?
Or some other catastrophe like COVID-19 strikes?

On the other hand, what does your business offer other businesses when… DISASTER STRIKES??  

Southwest Florida Business Today (SWFBT) gives you the opportunity to offer your solutions to its targeted audience in its nationally-recognized twelfth annual “Disaster Services 411”: the FocusFeature of the June edition.  

This special section gives you the forum to reach more than 50,000 readers in-print and online throughout Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Estero, Bonita Springs and Naples with either YOUR STORY or YOUR SOLUTION to help other businesses during their time of need. Of course, this special feature also appears both in-print and in the digital version of SWFBT on our website at Every inbox in our email database receives a link to the digital version for this and every issue. The newspaper is also direct-mailed to business community leaders as well as top executives at the top revenue companies in Lee and Collier counties. 

First, we’re looking for original material with an educational approach. Second, it must have a local angle and written for the business owner/operator. Third, we would like a 20-30 word “mini-bio” of the author and we will print that in addition to contact information. If you have a photo we can use (not a web photo), that would also be appreciated. The column should be around 500 words. You do not have to run an ad to get your guest column published; advertisers receive first-priority. 
Because these challenging times are continuing even as we move forward, you receive our lowest rates for this issue only! PLUS–add full color to your ad for just $50 more (a $30 savings!).
