imageGas prices got you down?  They’re insane! Well, the Microsoft Small Business Team has got a little something that should help you  get by during the summer months—actually, 5,000 little somethings.  We’re giving away 5,000 gallons of gas! Yep, we’re offering 5 ways to save and the chance to win 5,000 gallons of gasoline.

Here’s the deal: as energy and food prices continue to increase, house values continue to decrease and credit continues to tighten, people keep talking about how the economy is looking worse by the month.  Some will say this isn’t great news for small business; however, we believe small businesses are uniquely positioned to thrive during these times because they are small.  Small often means agile, which allows a company the flexibility to quickly cut costs and button-up operations, becoming more efficient and competitive during these times.

So, to help out just a little bit, we want to make sure small businesses have the information they need to make smart decisions about cutting costs and becoming more efficient.   As a first step in this effort, we are offering 5 money-saving ideas and the opportunity to win 5,000 gallons of gas at BumptheSlump.com.  So, check it out, enter to win and remember to pass along the good news.  Your customers will definitely love you for pointing them to the gas giveaway and may even want to tap into your small business technical expertise about some of the money-saving ideas.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
