Few options to fight back against credit card "chargebacks"

Statistics show that consumers dispute less than 0.01% of credit card purchases, but that tiny percentage can be a big problem for small businesses, which often must spend hours verifying the validity of a charge.

"What's different now is that you have access to so many more people than you otherwise would," says Erica Labovitz of IndieGoGo. Even so, more than 60% of funding efforts reportedly end unsuccessfully, and Labovitz and other participants in a recent panel say it takes a compelling vision and a clear plan for the money to move into the other 40%.

Why You Still Need E-Mail

by Samia S. Morgan

Why you still need e-mail in the marketing mix

Some experts say social media can replace e-mail as a marketing tool, but Tyler Garns lists several factors that can tilt the decision in e-mail's favor.

"Businesspeople still guard their email more closely than they do their social profiles," Garns writes. "So, if you want to do business with someone, use social media to get into their inbox."
