There are approximately 28.8 million small businesses in the United States, with small businesses of 500 employees or less making up 99.7% of those businesses. On top of competing with all those other businesses, you’ll also have to compete with chains, depending upon what industry you’re in.
Only one-third of small businesses survive past the 10 year mark. Knowing that you are up against competition and that growing a business is hard work means that you need to get as creative as possible with your advertising. One thing you must do is make sure the neighborhood and those driving past know you exist and are open for business.
