The 3 Biggest Challenges Small Businesses Face in the Bronx

The Competition

It’s safe to say that if you’re trying to do business anywhere in the five boroughs, you’ll be trying to contend with several businesses. Considering there are 8 million people in this city and 220 thousand businesses, it is never easy to attract the attention of your target audience. How can you stand out?

This is definitely true in the Bronx, where you’ll find yourself competing with businesses across a larger terrain and with harder public transportation from location to location. Odds are, you’ve also found yourself fighting with other local businesses for attention. This is super true when you factor in big box stores like Target and the like.

In a similar way, do you know how to target the market that you’re really looking for? And more than that, can you guarantee that it will recoup the budget of your marketing? These are just some of the questions you’ll need to ask yourself about your small business..

Hiring in the Bronx is Tough

Hiring the right support talent in New York City can be difficult. The majority of people in the city work at small businesses. So what does that mean? Well, you’re competing with most of the other businesses in the city for the same talent pool, which can be difficult. But at the same time, there are just as many potential employees that wouldn’t actually benefit your small business.

In the Bronx, you also have to consider how your small business employees will be affected by commuting. The Bronx can be harder to access from some of the other boroughs. Do you want to look for people outside of your geographical region to hire, or does it make more sense to look for Bronx natives instead? Each business needs to ask questions like this.

Finally, how do you make sure that you’re hiring the right people in the long run? In other words, you have to make sure that your employees are happy in the long run. But they also have to be the kinds of talent that you want to hold onto. This is another tough balance that you’ll need to keep in mind.  

Finding Real Estate isn't Easy

You know that old adage about finding real estate: the three most important things are location, location, and location. Whether starting or expanding your small business, you need the right location. When it comes to New York City, that is even harder considering how expensive real estate can be.

If you’re operating your business in the Bronx, you are contending with a mix of urban sprawl and differences in neighborhoods. Plus, you might be catering to the whole city and need to bring people to the Bronx. And that’s only if you can find the right location in the first place.

So how do you make all of this happen?

Solutions To The Problems Small Businesses Face in the Bronx

Small businesses in the Bronx typically need our help for a number of reasons. However, three key problems come up frequently which may resonate with you.
How do you beat the competition?

Let’s take this in two steps. First, we can consider the marketing aspect. Then we will look at standing out as a better option for your potential audience. Marketing is tough. It always involves either a lot of money, a lot of time, a lot of stress, or some combination of the three. By making a marketing plan for yourself and your staff to follow, however, you can prepare for the future.

Knowing just how much you’ll be spending on marketing in a period and making sure that you have goals will keep your company focused on success. There are affordable solutions you can keep in mind as well.

Trying to stand out as a strong alternative to other companies can be a bit harder. But by offering services that set you apart, you’ll make your business more memorable. This can take the form of working deeply with the Bronx community somehow or offering services that only cater to your borough. Maybe find a way to tie into the Botanical Gardens, or the Zoo. Take advantage of Arthur Avenue, or of Yankee Stadium. It’s a big borough, you can find your niche.

How do you hire the right people?

Hiring the right people in the Bronx isn’t much different from hiring anywhere in the city. In the Bronx, you often need to keep in mind the role of transit. But other than that, you’re beholden to many of the same issues as everyone else. Job boards in the Bronx or working with local universities to find young talent can be really useful, and you can seek out people from all kinds of backgrounds.

Sometimes a fresher face is better because they can bring different perspectives to your company that you don’t already possess. Similarly, find out what your current employees want. Happy talent equals satisfied talent. Whether its flexible schedules, working from home, benefits, or something else; you can often find a way to make your employees happy in the long run.

How do you find the right real estate in the Bronx?

If you’re thinking of starting a small business, you’re going to want to look for well-travelled areas in the Bronx to keep yourself in the public consciousness. Different neighborhoods each have different targets. Maybe you should look in Fordham, or near Pelham. It’s different for every business.

If you’ve already been operating a small business and are looking to expand, you need to make sure that whatever location you’re traveling to fits your already targeted demographic. Will you be catering to the same clientele you’ve been handling, or will you be looking for a different kind of person entirely? No two businesses are the same, but you’re going to want to find a market that isn’t too different from what you’ve already found successful.
