The Small Business Cooperative represents independent small businesses locally, and throughout the United States. Our members include businesses of many types.  The purpose of our local cooperative is to educate and consult business owners with the many challenges they face. For example, we collectively organize the purchase and acquisition of point of sale systems, because it helps our clients save capital and improve their businesses.  We also acquire and teach software systems (like invoicing), labor/payroll systems, tax compliance, electronic payments and mobile solutions.

The size our organization decreases the cost associated with these services and allows The Small Business Cooperative to provide the technical training and resources necessary to deliver these services to our members.

Marketing and Customer Relationship Management

Marketing is an extremely difficult challenge for small businesses throughout the Carolinas.

Likewise, customer relationship management is an area that many small business owners don't have the time to adequately address. The Small Business Cooperative can help your business in areas such as website design, social media management, email and text marketing, customer service systems and a host of other tools to address these areas.  For more information please use the contact us link below.
