Small Business Is The Future

By: Teamwork Retail

Recent years have seen an explosion in small business across the developed world, and the trend does not appear to be slowing down. Why is this happening, and what does it mean for your business? Here’s a brief overview of the unfolding story from Teamwork Retail, your provider for retail PoS systems.

Mistrust In Megacorporations

In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, “Big Business” as we know it has been subject to unprecedented levels of public scrutiny. As a result, many people are growing skeptical that large corporations are doing what’s best for the greater good. While complacent attitudes have allowed these companies to exist in the past, more and more people are choosing not to support mega corporations with their dollars.

The “Buy Local” Movement

Buying goods and services from those who operate local businesses is being seen as a more sustainable practice because it requires less fuel for shipping and keeps the money in the local economy. People are seeking out handmade goods, buying produce from farmers’ markets, and are choosing to do business with members of the community over national franchises.

Internet: The Great Equalizer

Thanks to the power to connect with people via the world wide web, it is now easier for businesses of any size to advertise, market, and sell.
