MetadataShow full item record
Small businesses have helped to shape the United States. I will discuss my experience working for the small business of AAA Pet Services, and then talk about the small business in general. In building a small business there are many humps one will encounter. In this paper I will investigate what it takes to start up a successful business. I found that four factors are vital to success with small business, niche marketing, location, advertising, and customer service. The ability of the owners to use these four factors will allow them to see early profits from their business. I encountered many articles which described different businesses and their ability to use these factors to increase make there businesses flourish. I also discuss the problems small businesses encounter with competitors. Due to the small size many businesses struggle to compete with large corporations such as WalMart. I discuss how these businesses stick to the ideas of niche marketing, advertising, location, and customer service to survive in the market place. The ability by these owners to adapt to the market is critical to allowing them to keep their livelihoods.
