The Small Business Association (SBA) states that 30% of businesses fail during the first two years of being open, 50% during the first five years, and 66% during the first 10. There are reported 29.6 million small businesses operating in the US alone but only half of them will survive past 5 years which is why it is especially critical to support those who do own small companies.
Small business survival ensures the livelihood of communities, the creation of meaningful jobs, the support of makers, and the preservation of traditional production methods. There are many ways to support small business such as purchasing locally made items and avoiding big corporations, purchasing from craft fairs and markets, leaving reviews, and spreading the word about small businesses.
There are many benefits to shopping through small businesses instead of large ones, not only for the business owner but for the customer as well. Fewer employees and customer traffic allow for a better more personalized service and unique products.
EcoElectronix is a small business owner who operates through Amazon.com selling electric staplers and other office supplies with a lifetime warranty. Since the company is family-owned and operated they care about the customer's needs as stated by Seth Allen, owner of EcoElectronix.
“We are a small family-owned business and we truly care about our customers' needs. If someone is not satisfied with their purchase, we will do everything we can to make it right. We also include a lifetime warranty with all purchases, which is something you won’t find at large businesses.”
Seth added, “At EcoElectronix we also care about the environment, which is why we made our EX-25 electric staplers with impact-resistant ABS material and sustainable environment-friendly manufacturing practices. In addition, we donate a portion of sales to environmental charities including, Rainforest Alliance and Earthjustice, because a better world benefits everyone.”
An EcoElectronix customer stated in an Amazon.com review that he loves using the EX-25 electric stapler in his small businesses and supporting other small businesses too. “Best stapler! Our clerks (we are a pharmacy) and I love it! It actually speeds up each transaction and provides more time to communicate with customers, answer questions, etc. The coolest feature is that you can actually set the depth of the staple, it is really easy. I'm a small business, and buy from other small businesses as much as possible.”
