There has never been a better time to start a new business. Now, you could say that now is the worst time to start a new business - with a pandemic raging, stock market volatility, and struggling businesses in every city.
So...why is today the best time to start your business?
First off, the best time to start your small business is always now. If you feel the passion to do something that you know you are gifted in and will bring value and joy to the world, then you can't afford to wait any longer. There are always going to be reasons not to start your business. Don’t let them distract you from fulfilling your dreams.
Here are some of the positives for small businesses in today’s climate:
People are searching for local family owned businesses that they can support.
No one wants to patronize the big box businesses if they can find a small business alternative that is priced comparably and offers a great customer experience. You will have to get your prices into the range of the big box stores, but if you can, then you can create a customer base for life
People want to know your story! They want to have a relationship with you.
Now more than ever, consumers want to experience and be a part of your experience as a small business. If you can create a compelling brand and story as part of your business, then you can attract more customers to your business. This means being genuine and authentic. The modern consumer can tell when a business is a small business and when it is a big box chain that has no relationship with its customers.
We are seeing unprecedented demand for many services. Most contractors such as plumbers, electricians, etc. have seen an uptick in demand during the pandemic. New home demand is still high. There is a glut of demand a short supply of contractors and service providers.
