96% of small business fail within 10 years; 70% within 5 years and 20% in the first year of operation. One of the most frustrating reasons small businesses fail is communication. How about this for a head scratcher: almost 20% of all small business fail simply because they ignore their customers.
If you aren’t communicating with customers you are going to fail. Seems logical, enough doesn’t it? But still small businesses ignore customers which eventually leads to them shutting their doors. How is this happening, and more importantly why is this happening? The most important question is how can we stop this from happening.

The reasons why small businesses fail is a lack of fundamental understanding of clients. The ability to prioritize clients is a skill and one that not everyone has.
