Small Business Spotlight of the Week: Zing! admin | July 9th, 2010

Good day crowdSPRING blog readers, today I’m going to let you in on the next big thing sure to hit a conference near you and it’s called Zing!

You’re probably wondering what in the world…? But it’s great! Zing! is an interactive singing fitness show featuring sing-alongs to pop and Broadway hits, paired with dance moves sure to get the blood pumping. In addition to conferences, you’ll find Zing! at fitness and dance centers, offered as a group class targeting strength, endurance, flexibility and balance.

I connected with Pam Peterson, the creator of Zing! and the buyer who posted the Zing! project on the site looking for a logo design. Pam is a professional singer/actress and a personal fitness trainer so she’s highly qualified to pump you into shape at your next conference.

I got a chance to ask her a few questions and this what she has to share with you…

1.  How did you get things designed before crowdSPRING?

When I needed graphic designs in the past, I turned to colleagues of colleagues… with mixed results.

2.  Why in the world did you decide to use crowdSPRING?!

A fellow NAWBO Chicago member had posted a listserve request for a logo designer.  I liked the laid-back, conversational email response from CrowdSpring, and decided to check out your website.  Wow!  Let’s face it, the concept is phenomenal.  Where else could I name my price and attract a global talent pool from which to choose my design?

3.  What’s the single best small biz resource that you’ve found (magazine, website, blog, etc.)?

I’m a big fan of two Chicago women’s business organizations:  National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC).

4.  If your best friend told you they were going to start a business, what’s the ONE piece of advice you’d give them?

Clear your calendar for the next decade.

From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!
