How to SWOT Your Way to a Better Small Business

As business owners, we often develop tunnel vision about our business. We may become more removed from the daily operations, have certain beliefs that are outdated or are so busy working IN our business that we can't see the big picture.

So getting feedback about your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats is important as you develop your goals and plan your direction moving forward. Here is what you should consider:

Strengths are those things that make your business stronger than your competitors and might include things like an established (loyal) customer base, a good reputation, a product or service that sells well, high-traffic location or quality employees.

Small Business Marketing Ideas - Three Tips for Success

It's a rare small business owner who planned to be in the business he or she finishes up in (and I include myself here). I ended up in my business partly through a love of writing, and partly through necessity. Few of us actually sit down and plan the whole adventure as a business from the outset, though.

A commonplace error appears to be they believe if they're good at doing the "thing", then they can run a "thing" business, too.

Unfortunately, this is typically not true. And the BIG concern is few people realize whatever business they assume they're in, they're really in the marketing of the business they're in. In other words, if you sell widgets, you're not in the "widget business": you're really in the "marketing of a widget business business".

So in this brief article I share with you what I consider to be the 3 most vital pieces in any small business's marketing plan.

There is a lot more, indeed, but if you can get the knack of these 3, then this alone is going to put you head and shoulders above your competitors.

What Should Small Business Look for in an IT Provider?

Outsourcing is one of the fastest growing trends in the small business world today, and for good reason. By outsourcing parts of their operations, small businesses almost always save money and often end up with higher quality service than they'd be able to afford otherwise. When one considers overhead and training associated with internal hiring, the amount of expertise that can be had for a given budget is much greater with an outsourced partner than a full time employee or team of employees. This is especially true in the field of IT, where quality technicians are paid high wages and it's nearly impossible for an individual to be an expert in everything.

The only downside to the outsourcing model occurs if a business enters into a lengthy contract with a provider that isn't a good fit. Unfortunately, as technology continues to become more essential to everyday business practice, it's becoming increasingly difficult for small business owners to know what to expect from an IT provider and which of each provider's merits are reliable indicators of outstanding service.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Incorporating a Business

Should I incorporate my business or not? This is one of the questions I get so often when I talk to my clients about the fundamentals of incorporating a business. So in this article, I will be sharing with you the advantages and disadvantages of incorporating your business.

Incorporating a business is one of the key questions to ask when starting a business but before I go into the pros and cons of getting incorporated, I want to draw a line between unincorporated companies and incorporated companies. Unincorporated businesses cover sole proprietorships, or businesses which have exactly one owner, partnerships or businesses which have two or more co-owners. In the unincorporated setup, the owners of the company are the business themselves; while they get a share of business profits, they also expose themselves to a large degree of responsibility for all the liabilities and debts that strike down a business. Therefore, creditors can take over personal assets in case of business debt and can also take over business assets in case of personal debt as well. There is simply no room to be financially careless.

An incorporated business however, grants the business a legal standing distinct from its owners. Ownership of incorporated businesses is through holding stocks (certificates of ownership). These stocks are the owners' involvement in the business, and through it they can get a share of the profit proportional to the amount of stocks they have. Because of the separation of owners and business in the eyes of the law, whatever arises as a liability in one camp leaves the other camp untouched. Creditors therefore cannot chase personal property in cases of bankruptcy in an incorporated business. Likewise, creditors cannot chase business assets in case the owners themselves get bankrupt. Separation of owners and business also allows the easy transfer of business ownership through stock distribution. Incorporation also allows the business to continue existing even if the owners retire or die, and allows more opportunities for government financing.

In Appreciation of Small Business Owners - Let's Do More, Together

Congratulations. As the owner of an established small business, you have successfully navigated quite a few of the terror-filled challenges which start-up entrepreneurs still have to face. Having said this, the one thing a small business owner can be absolutely guaranteed of, is constant challenges, simply because of the unknown and nobody knows what tomorrow might bring. You are also faced with constantly having to make decisions, some big, some small, yet all having consequence because as we know, every action (the decision) sets about a reaction (the result). As the leader of the business, you to deal with staff matters, employee outputs and you have to set the performance tone. You have to manage resources and systems in order to drive improved efficiencies because by making the cost of doing business more affordable, you have funds for growth. You also have to grapple with the relentless landscape of multi-tasking and I'm sure you can write all these titles under your name too: operations manager, marketing manager, secretary, bookkeeper, sales and service manager etc.
