WHY SO MANY SMALL BUSINESSES FAIL
It is a well known fact that the vast majority of small businesses fail within a year or two of opening their doors. Unfortunately learning a trade such as electrician or plumber does not teach you all the necessary skills required to successfully run a business. It is also not always practical for the business owner to know everything that is needed to make a success of the business. After all, you have been trained to be an electrician for example, and that is what you should be concentrating on, that is your skill.
The following are just some of the skills required to make a success of your business venture:
Basic financial skills/knowledge such as bookkeeping, budgeting, cash-flow management, monitoring financial results and taking corrective action.
Marketing your business/product effectively. All too often new business owners open their doors and sit and wait for business to "walk in". These days it is not enough to stick a 3 line ad in the local weekly newspaper. Every business, no matter how small should have a website as well as a Facebook page. Creating these requires specialist knowledge and tools and, of course, many hours of work. And that is oversimplifying things - creating a website or Facebook page is just the first step. People need to find it, it needs to pop up when they are searching for the specific service you offer. This also requires specialist skills which are evolving all the time.
