Being a small business can be your competitive advantage. You can be quick, responsive, and flexible. You can keep your organization flat.There is an interesting discussion on this going on in the comments at Chris Brogan’s Small is a Weapon.
Clients from big cities may dismiss you. I get that surprised reaction all the time in the social media world.
“How did you ever get into this from a small town?”
Hey, we have internet, and high speed. We even get sunshine three days a week now. (I never said it was rational, but it is there. A lot.)
Do you get similar reactions? How do you respond? Or do you turn it around and focus on small town clients? Or not let anyone know where you are?
