Today Allbusiness.com announced a deal to supply San Francisco Chronicle with content for a small business channel. SmartOnline is also branching out its content with partners and as this market of SMB content continues to grow these players and others will start to see more of each other in the biz dev offices of large media companies.
The San Francisco Chronicle publishes the nation’s 10th largest newspaper and runs the fourth largest newspaper Web site, and this partnership marks another important development for the AllBusiness.com brand and its content.
Through the agreement AllBusiness.com is powering the San Francisco Chronicle’s comprehensive Small Business Center, at http://allbusiness.sfgate.com/ , with articles in 20 major categories, as well as business forms and agreements, business directories and commentary from experts and bloggers. AllBusiness.com articles and tips also will appear in the newspaper as part of the Chronicle’s newly launched weekly feature dedicated to the small business market.
“Partnering with SFGate and The Chronicle allows us another channel to distribute our content to entrepreneurs and small businesses. We know business professionals continually juggle several projects at once and through this partnership we hope to provide our resources to this audience in the format they find most convenient, whether that is online or offline,” commented Richard D. Harroch, chairman of AllBusiness.com.
AllBusiness.com’s partnership with the San Francisco Chronicle marks another important development for the online media company. AllBusiness.com content is already included throughout some of the best sites on the Web, including Yahoo! and About.com, a division of the New York Times Company.
