There are three things that can help a small business succeed. It is hard to compete against larger companies that have a lot of money and resources. So small businesses will need to do something different if they are going to be successful. The three things are:
1.: Find Your Niche: Don't try and compete with the "big boys" in the market. Find markets that are not into large corporations or who are not serviced well by them and cater to that group.
2. Be Unique and Have Best Atmosphere: Offering a great atmosphere that creates something very unique and interesting. Something they are unlikely to find somewhere else.
3. Service and Quality: If you are a small business provide the highest levels of services and specialization you can. Create relationships and be like a consultant.
