A business is an indispensable aspect of life. In certain
situations, a person’s ability is measured by the business he does. Since
business is one of the metrics that evaluate a man’s worth, it is very
essential that a man should pool his efforts (both physical and mental) together in order to make the best out of his business sphere.

Basically, the main goal of any business is to succeed in
its environment, sphere or location. However, many businesses fail in the
contemporary business world due to specific reasons. As a businessman, your
primary motive is to make profit but in certain circumstances, things might
fail to materialze and the outcome could mean your business is not running
In business, it isn’t satisfactory to make gains and loss
that balance exactly but it is quite bearable. On the contrary, a businessman
must realize that he has gone down if his business record shows a loss margin

Lack of Adequate Business Resources

Before setting up a business, a businessman must have
gathered his wherewithals together and ensured that they are sufficient for the
smooth running of his business. Unfortunately, dozens of businesspeople

The environment of a business is certainly one of the
factors that contribute to its success. Nowadays, countless businesses have
failed because their owners established them in poor environments which hardly
cater for favourable business conditions.
Poor Business Strategies

A business strategy is any measure adopted by a businessman
to ensure his business runs smoothly. For a businessman to steer clear of any
business failures such as liquidation, bankruptcy and excess loss over profit,
he must be ready to adopt meaningful business strategies which can keep his
business in good order.
Poor business strategies can result in certain undesirable
effects which in  turn dissuade customers
from patronizing a specific business. If buyers, clients or other patronizers
fail to get the customer relations they deserve, they may decide to look around
for the other people who offer the services or goods they need.
Lack of After-Sales Services

It is a great task to win the hearts of a
hundred customers but it is pretty easy to lose a thousand customers in the
twinkling of an eye. Customers believe they deserve quality services even when
they pay less for goods or services. But sadly, there are some businesses which
do not render follow-up services that can persuade clients/customers to come
again and again. When a business provides its customers with great after-sales
services such as quick repair or replacement of bad goods, the customers will
be pleased to patronize it regularly.
