How SMEs can stay competitive in the digital age
MANILA, Philippines – Before, entrepreneurs used brick and mortar to build their dream businesses.
These days, they bank on the Internet as their capital.
As we welcomed the rise of the digital age for the wealth of information and convenience it offered, more innovative minds realized its commercial potential.
Thus began the rise of enterprises in the digital sphere, giving birth to new kinds of businesses, and giving smaller ones the opportunity to shine. From marketing, news, and public relations – everyone had gone online.
These digital businesses redefined the whole industry – it’s more fast-paced than ever, and prodded even the most old-fashioned businesspeople to see the necessity of going digital.
It’s not enough to adopt new technologies. Entrepreneurs should be forward-thinking – not only constantly looking for ways to reinvent themselves and the ways they work, but also to remain abreast with all the trends in business and tech.
So beyond keeping themselves afloat, how can businesses remain relevant in a world that’s constantly evolving?
