Welcome to this week’s small business news roundup!

This week we’ll discuss how to get  the most out of LinkedIn data, Amazon’s rise as a lender to small businesses, the progress of women-owned small businesses, and the need for better small biz apps.

First some other great roundups:

  • This Week in Small Business: About That Replacement Ref: The New York Times links to articles on “the fiscal cliff issue,” an impending bacon shortage, Amazon’s foray into the wine business, cold-calling strategies, top cities in America for social-media-savvy small businesses, and much more.
  • 3 Things You Should Know About Small Business: October 1: The Street has links to articles on whether small businesses should be concerned about the “fiscal cliff,” Biz2Credit’s new industry-specific pages to help small biz owners secure financing, and more on the NFL replacement referee who made a now-infamous controversial call and who also happens to be a small business banker.

And now, the rest!

  • Small businesses need better apps, survey says: PCWorld reports on a survey by Bank of the West, which found “that SMBs have embraced mobile technology and recognize its importance, but are frustrated by a lack of apps more relevant to their specific business needs.”
