The global economy is not in a stable position. Several country’s economy, throughout the world are in a turmoil position. Greece, Venezuela, Yemen, Pakistan are all in big trouble. Uncertainty looms over much of the big players, such as US & China, too. These are testing times indeed for small businesses. Despite the problems and the uncertainties, small businesses can grow into a big business by endorsing certain strategies. By following these simple yet efficient strategies, small businesses can thrive.
Cost cuttings:- This is the most important factor in a crisis situation. Cutting down on your costs should always be your priority. Unnecessary investments, endorsements, high profile advertising’s should be curtailed down. However, the company should keep in mind that they should never compromise the quality on their products or on their services to the customers. Rather than compromising on their products, tweaking the company’s production and making it affordable and efficient is the key.
Targeting the right market:- Research. Research. Research. It is vital. Research the market and find out the right corner to promote your business and get a foothold in the segment. It is useless marketing ice creams in winter. Spot the right market and just hang on to it. Most big business follow this. Once you get a grab on the market, aggressively marketing your products is important.
Quality matters:- Not the quantity, but quality matters. You can either make or break your business, when it comes to quantity. You cannot just pour down your products into the market and hope that someone would buy it. The classic example is the mobile company “OnePlus”. It never relied on the quantity or marketing. It just built an awesome mobile phone and gave it to a customer. And it spread like wildfire. The quality alone, of the mobile phone, reaped huge business to the company. Even if they relied on advertising, this product would have been immediate hit, but that’s another case. Instead they were patiently waiting for the positive review from the customers and it took off. Quality builds trust and trust earns you respect.
Partnerships:- This is another key point in making your business big. You have the products, you have the idea to improvise it but you lack the proper technology to implement it. What would do? Simply, find out the right company, which is exactly in the same boat like you are in (small business) and get in with a deal. Never ever deal with the giants. They will take a huge biting off your profits. Small business can only understand small business. Trade, exchange and create. Once you have created an awesome product, do the marketing and sit back, take a sip and enjoy.
E-Marketing:- Guess what’s the cheapest way of marketing your products? Yep, you are right:- E-Marketing. Facebook, Twitter, Emails; all were created just for you. Its friendly, its effective, its viral and most of all, it is free. E-marketing is still the cheapest way to get new customers world-wide and promote your company all around.
