Think Small, Achieve Little

One problem businesses run into is the problem of small success -- often the result of simply thinking too small. Don't suffer from the same. Here are five key areas where you can think too small -- and destine your business to minimal success (if any at all).

Small Niches

Working with a target market is key to success, but sometimes people narrow their niche entirely too much -- right down to a few hundred customers (as opposed to hundreds of thousands or millions). While doggy dental products could be a wonderful niche, for example (as almost any dog owner can attest), you could narrow your focus down to a certain breed -- ultimately cutting out your chances to sell to other breed owners.

Small Markets

If you're looking only at one community or a small geographic region, you could be thinking too small. It's far too easy to quickly saturate a small market, and inadvertently, let just a few marketing mistakes end your campaign before it gets off the ground.

Small Budgets

You may not need a million-dollar advertising budget, but you should have some seed money to get your marketing campaign off the ground. Expecting to build a business from nothing is expecting entirely too much, and if you insist on doing so, you might find yourself making mistakes that cost you a lot more down the road than if you had put a little money up front.

Small Schedules

Do you have enough time to devote to your business? Starting, running, and growing a business takes time. Some people get swept up in the planning and dreaming stages, and ultimately never really start. Other people start before they've completely planned everything out, and then they get mired down by unexpected difficulties.

Small Ideas

To succeed, you really have to actively seek out new opportunities, find new customers, find new potential partners, and find ideas for new products. Flexibility and adaptability are key to survival in today's business. And this means raising your head up out of the trenches once in a while.
