How can small businesses effectively compete with larger businesses?

Like millions of decorators out there, many shops struggle to differentiate themselves from competitors who offer the same goods to the same potential customers. This is why branding is so critical to a business’s success. Having a brand identifies who you are and your niche. It’s crucial to identify yourself and who your target market is.

Look at your customer base. Who is your audience? What and why are they buying from you? Look for common interests. What is your typical customer like? What are their demographics?

Small businesses can effectively compete with large businesses by just targeting their niche market. Next, study your competitors. Who are their customers? You don’t necessarily have to go after the same market, but you may find a niche that they are missing or that’s weak.

If there is a weak link between you and your audience, then your brand isn’t strong. Defining your target takes a lot of research with trial and error, but once you know who you’re targeting, it will increase potential and repeat sales.
