Figures show that there are over 27 million businesses operating in the USA alone now. This means that there are many different types of people from widely varying backgrounds who own small businesses.
Recent history has shown that there are some key technology skills that are highly valuable for anyone looking to start out on their own with a new business venture of any type. The absence of these key skills can lead to disaster or at least to an under-performing business, while having them leads to a greater sense of assurance and self-sufficiency.
On this subject, The Founder of YourBusinessCoachingClub, Craig Ridley, said that “there are 9 technology skills that every new business owner needs to have in order to achieve success.” He listed these as including cyber security, securing of data, email marketing, understanding social media, accounting software, mobile apps, HTML/CSS and WordPress, web analytics and knowledge of SEO.
With this broad range of skills, anyone can feel confident about facing up to the technological challenge of running a small business of just about any type. As the current global costs of IT outsourcing is estimated at $1 trillion, having a sound foundation of knowledge in these subjects can also save time and money by lowering the need for outsourcing.
Mr Ridley confirmed that “no special skills or technical background is needed to learn any of these areas well.” He went on to point out that the owner having an understanding of each of these areas can prove to be vital in solving problems and ensuring the smooth running of the company.
Numerous small businesses go to the wall every year, but every useful new skill that business owners learn increases their chances of avoiding this fate.
