Welcome to SmartCompany version 2.0

SmartCompany is Australia’s premier news and information site for small and medium business owners and managers with more than 130,000 uniques a month and an email alert that goes out to 14,000 SME owners.

Just two years after our launch, we’re pleased to unveil our new and improved website, SmartCompany 2.0.

Here are some of the great new features and how you can use them:

Industry sections

Every day our industry sections are updated with news, trends, ideas, features, entrepreneur case studies, relevant industry blogs and answers to questions from our readers. So when you come to SmartCompany, don’t forget to catch up with what’s new in your industry and what your competitors are doing. If you have something to contribute to the industry section send it to [email protected].

Hot topics

Often there is a topic that hits the news and our readers want more detail. It could be anything from the latest news on top domain names to in search engine. So when you write to us and you feel a story has legs, suggest it could be a hot topic. Again send your email to [email protected]. Check our hot topics regularly and you will find them here.


Come and talk to entrepreneurs, experts and each other in our forums. You will need to register (it only takes a minute) but this is a great opporunity to get even more involved with our fast-growing community.

Ask an adviser

Aunty B has threatened to resign unless other advisers come on board and help her answer the many questions she gets from business owners – and on occasion their staff. If you want a question answered on any business matter, send it into [email protected] or [email protected].  If you would like to be an adviser, contact editor James Thomson at [email protected].

New blogs

We’ve got two great new blogs that will be updated throughout the day:

– Boss Lady will be a daily update written by an entrepreneur (me) for entrepreneurs (you). I will look at what is affecting our world, share the tips and gossip I pick up around the traps, and pass on useful advise as well as warnings.

– SmartCompany editor James Thomson will also be updating his daily Entrepreneur Watch. As you might know, James was the former editor of the BRW Rich 200. His knowledge on wealthy entrepreneurs is unrivalled. Come and read his daily updates on which entrepreneurs are doing what.

Thought leader

A thought leader is a company or entrepreneur that wants to be a leader in their industry through profiling their innovative products and/or services that will appeal to the SME marketplace. This is a sponsored section. Thought Leaders appears on every page of the site and takes the reader through to a micro site on SmartCompany. There are only four Thought Leader spaces available. If you are interested in being a Thought Leader, contact Campbell Corser at [email protected].


SmartCompany regularly conducts seminars and our principals and contributors regularly talk at events. SmartCompany also hosts regular webinars. Both seminars and webinars can be sponsored and if you are interested, please contact Campbell Corser at [email protected]
