When you’re serious about growing your small business it makes sense to get the best advice possible. You can do that even if money is tight by tapping the expertise of Small Business Development Center (SBDC) advisors and consultants. SBDCs are funded in part by the United States Congress through a partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration. SBDC Centers offer free consulting and free or low-cost training. (Find yours here.) Their results speak for themselves: SBDC clients grow sales by an average 18.1%, which is 4.3 times the national average. March 20th is SBDC Day, and to celebrate, we assembled some tips from their experts. Make a list of your competitor’s strengths and weaknesses. Thoroughly research them so you are able to take their weakness and make them your strengths. You don’t want to compete with them on their strengths when you can target their weaknesses and excel there. That’s your competitive advantage!
