Small Business – Where to Begin?
Looking to open a small business? Well it has never been a worse time in some sectors, while other sectors may seem more promising. Advice from a small business in Fort Lauderdale, Florida: take the service route – forget goods, forget exports….read on as to why Locksmith Fort Lauderdale, Free My Lock says “in today’s economy – service is the way to go”.
US Deficit: Impact on Small Business
The graph above shows where the flow of money has been flowing out of the US…holding steady at NEGATIVE40 billion dollars to other economies for the last 8 years, up 25 Billion from a slippery way down to a 65 Billion. So why is it that a small business selling goods cannot flourish in this economy? Well the graph says all. Whether you are a small business in manufacturing or a small business selling goods, it is hard to compete with the big guys. Manufacturing goods that are special and unique still have similar goods that are brought in much cheaper from other countries – and the distribution channels are challenging. You have either online sales that are difficult to market without:
1 – Web Presence
2 – Money to Google Ads
or, you have to partner with stores that by cheap goods to resell at high prices & don’t really want to deal with small business. You really have to have something spectacular to make it in manufacturing and the right stores to work with. The same applies to resale except your product is probably sold in many places, making the competition fierce.
What to do if you really want to work for yourself?
