KEY TO SMALL BUSINESS SUCCESS!
In today’s fast-paced and changing business environments, small business owners face increasing competition from expanding large retailers and exploding eCommerce. This should drive you to personalize your product and service offerings to meet the needs of specific targeted customers/clients. You should be laser focused in choosing a target market segment. You cannot compete solely on price or quality; you must differentiate your offerings and tailor them to your customer base.
Your Key to Small Business Success: Develop your niche based on customer experience. More specifically, provide added value and convenience, based on a foundation of trust and ethics. Your customers will be willing to “pay more” because they want to do business with you. That is how you will succeed as a Small Business Owner!
Principally a B2B Portal, with B2C Value
The Greater Wilmington Small Business Success Portal is targeted at small businesses that both provide and consume products and services. Although primarily a Business-to-Business (B2B) portal we also encourage consumers/residents to become familiar with the businesses in our directory, as several have a Business-to-Consumer (B2C) component. In particular, look for the “(B2C)” marking in the directory.
