Remember being an MVP? You know, when you were in little league and your parents assured you that you were the best player on the field, no matter how horrible you played or how much time you spent gazing at the clouds in the outfield. Let’s be real. You knew they were fibbing, but you let them do it — because it made you feel valued. Your parents didn’t have to tell you that you were “the best” when you struck out at tee-ball. They only did it so that you could feel rewarded for a moment. Ah, those were the days. But now we’re adults, and we’ve all figured out that we’re not automatically MVPs in adulthood. Small business owners face this harsh reality every day. Their business won’t succeed just because they’re open and, well — there. No. Small business owners have to be proactive and make difficult decisions daily to figure out how to profit. Luckily, one smart and straightforward decision the small business owners of Alcorn County can make today is switching their internet service to ACE Fiber internet.
Most small business owners want flexibility and stability. They aren’t the risk-takers you think they are. These entrepreneurs tend to take things slowly and grow their business as the demand for their product or service increases. A scalable internet service solution like fiber is perfect. The flexible bandwidth that fiber internet provides ensures top-notch performance that grows with small business needs. According to David Arvig of bizjournals.com, “Internet service delivered over a fiber network can easily be adjusted to accommodate growth needs without additional hardware. Other technologies — such as DSL — have limitations and often require extra equipment to attain more speed.”
No small business owner wants to spend valuable business hours waiting for service installation and equipment upgrades from cable or DSL providers only to get their internet connection up to adequate speed. With fiber, there’s no waiting. If you need a faster connection, it’s a quick, friendly, and local phone call to your neighbors at ACE Fiber. And speaking of friendly customer service, it’s clear that small businesses have to offer high-quality customer service now more than ever. A recent study from Hubspot shows that 90% of customers expect an “immediate” (aka 10 minutes or less) response time for their inquiries. Lighting-fast fiber internet will give your business the speed it needs to satisfy your customers, with the added benefit of no-hassle upgrades. No more time wasted means more time to invest in your industry.
So if you’re thinking about cable or DSL service for that local hardware store you’re opening soon — it’s time to reconsider. All small businesses need the lightning-speed internet service they get with fiber, even brick and mortar shops. David Weedmark of smallbusiness.chron says that without fast internet service and an online presence, “Even brick and mortar shops are invisible to people who are more likely to look down at their phone than to look up and down a street to find what they need.”
Don’t be invisible. Don’t just participate. It’s time for your small business to become an MVP with ACE Fiber optic internet.
