Week 13: Reference USA
Posted June 24, 2010on:
Reference USA , a detailed business directory for business/competitor research, features more than 14 million U.S. businesses. All data is verified and updates are made monthly to maintain accuracy of information.
This database can assist small business owners, entrepreneurs, and job seekers research companies. Researchers have access to company information such as, but not limited to, address, telephone number(s), number of employees, sales volume, maps, credit rating, and nearby competing businesses. This information is particularly helpful for potential small business owners to research if there are competing companies in the area of where h/she may want to open up shop. Or perhaps a job seeker wants to locate all the construction companies in San Jose so h/she can get contact information.
Reference USA has a wealth of information, I suggest you play around with Custom Search and see all the information that is available. This is the database to keep in mind when customers have business start-up questions or any time a customer wants detailed company information.
Researchers can use the Quick Search or Custom Search function to locate information. Users are allowed 50 downloads per search.
