I used to be the most successful trader in my area, but now that another merchant has started trading near me, I just haven't been getting any business! You see, I'm not very good at advertising, but this guy has everyone talking about him! What can I do to make my business unique? HELP!
Sincerely, Out of Business
I think that that you need to consider moving your business to another area, or at least selling at another market. If you are set on your area, perhaps you should add something personal to your business. Maybe try chatting with your customers, or give them an extra loaf of bread for their children. Either one of these options should make a difference. Good luck!
