To answer your question on data available on SME's, here is a screen shot of the results based on a search on a company's ABN:http://vunoo.com/images/chresults.JPG It will not be very clear in this image however it is showing the name, address, phone, email, companies, websites for the ceo. Also showing the relatives living at the addresses. Share holder details. Social media accounts and basically anything that is connected to each result. There is plenty of data out there that can help SME's in different ways. From locating someone who owes you money and is trying to hide behind companies. Background checks on new companies that sign up accounts with you or just marketing information. In some cases you don't need to find new data sources, you may just need to look at the data you already have in a different way.I was at a conference last year when someone asked me what I could do to help them find their customers that owe them money. After finding out what their business was initial step they should have taken was in their own data. Before you buy data, look at your own data first from a different angle. As for the actual sources, I have a pretty large collection of current and historical data on business and residential. If you are looking for additional sources of data happy to have a chat and apply a discount for Savvysme members.

Hi Neil,  Great question!   I guess it depends on what you are planning to use the information for.  Are you wanting it to market to them, or know ABS stats?  I think there is more than enough data about, my view is despite how much data is there - what is everyone doing with it?  Are they interpreting and using it effectively to grow their business?

Warmly, Lisa O

Hi Lisa and many thanks for your answer. I was dissatisfied with the easily available data and really how little it told us about the market. Since placing the question we have held two SME focus groups and completed some of our own research. We are compiling this data at the moment and on early indications it is quite interesting. We have omitted the “professional” segment of the SME Market at this stage of our research as whilst it is the second largest category we don’t believe it is representative of the market as a whole. Enjoy your Easter break and thanks again, Neil.
