When you're set to buy something, whether it be a product or service, what do most of us do? Go to your local Target, Walmart, Autozone, etc. These are all major corporations throughout the United states, and some even throughout the world. It may be convenient to go to a store like Walmart and get lots of different things without having to go to a specialty store, but the truth is, shopping with small businesses may be not only advantageous to you but it definitely is beneficial to small business owners.
Why would anyone choose to shop with a small business rather than a big corporation? Well for one, small businesses are more dependent on every client that comes in, in turn your service is better. A small business not only wants you to come back but their livelihood depends on it. Sometimes you'll hear people say that they get better prices at the big chains, while that may be true for some stores, the better price often compromises the quality of the product. And although in some cases the price advantage that big chains provide may be true, there are many cases where it is not, for example small grocery stores often have better prices on produce than big budget stores such as Ralphs or Vons. Some Walmart stores stock fabrics at a decent price, but I know many mom & pop shops that are not only cheaper but will throw in an extra yard or two if I'm buying enough. Little perks such as that last one just mentioned make doing business with small businesses a pleasure.
When hiring a company to provide a service such as design a website, it also might be better to go to a small company, as often with big companies your project could get lost in the shuffle or not get as much attention as some of the company's bigger clients, though if you're getting good service by either a big business or small business you probably want to stick to that company.
