The struggles of Small Business Owners
Digital Office Assistant Service, Melanie Lee

I am continuously looking for ways to assist others around me. So I asked myself, "What are the true challenges of company owners?" Especially from smaller businesses. I did some research on the internet. I read so many blogs and articles, watched so many YouTube videos, and ultimately came up with a list that everyone could agree on.

Small business owners are facing a long list of every day struggles just to stay in business and to not get broke. Without the resources large corporations are able to work with, small businesses find themselves working much hard to generate revenue and make a profit, and mostly the numbers are not comparable to the work they do. I would even say, that small business mostly work for less because they get told, the order/task/project would help them getting more clients or customers. So they work harder, better for less. 

In order to be able to address the struggles of small business owners, you must first understand and identify these daily business issues. Therefor I created this list for you:

Money is at the root of all of this, isn't it? - Financing

It is critical for a company to have enough money to cover the pay of its employees, produce new goods, implement a marketing strategy, and to grow its services in order to meet increasing demand. However, obtaining the capital needed to run and develop a small business can be a struggle for firms of all sizes. Due to their lack of equity, debt, and capabilities, investors and financial institutions may be reluctant to invest in a small firm, even though a large corporation or an organization that possesses the capabilities to compete in the free market has equity and resources.

A never-ending story! - Marketing

A business's ability to reach new customers will depend on a number of factors, including their marketing and advertising strategies. A small business with limited marketing budgets may find it difficult to get their target demographic. To effectively market a product or service, a significant amount of marketing dollars is needed. While social networking sites, blogs, and corporate websites provide various free marketing options, one must still bear the costs of other marketing mediums (television and print) in order to reach an intended audience.

We never have enough of it! - Time Management

Small companies are responsible for a variety of duties that might consume time in their daily routine. Sales and marketing operations, the hunt for finance, product development, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and business expansion can be tough for entrepreneurs to balance. If a small business owner is unable to recruit support in these areas, it might be difficult to devote the necessary attention to all aspects of the company.

How to attract the right helpers and make them stay! - Employee’s

Smaller businesses have a difficult time attracting and retaining quality people that can help them grow. Larger companies frequently provide employee perks such as health insurance, vacation days, sick days, and profit sharing. These kind of job incentives make it difficult for small enterprises to compete. Employees are drawn away from small enterprises by big organizations' higher compensation, making it harder for small enterprises to decrease employee turnover.

And here's my favorite on this list as I can actually help with this point (and a little bit of marketing, of course):

Implementing new technology in time

When new technology is introduced, its implementation might be costly. A small firm may not have the financial or technological resources that perhaps a larger corporation does to take advantage of new technologies, putting it at a considerable disadvantage in the marketplace. A new manufacturing procedure, for example, may let a large company produce a product quicker and more effectively as a small one, allowing the bigger company to gain market share.

Especially nowadays it is important to remain marketable and if you have to work with fewer resources anyway, the effort should actually be minimized. As you can see, this point is really hugely important.

For this reason we have put together the digital office assistant service for you. Based on Odoo 14, it has a very popular and secure platform. Over 5 million users are just as happy as we are and have everything they need to hand every day to work easier, faster and more successfully.
