A lot of effort goes into creating your own business, from the idea to the business plan to the actual launch. Once your business is launched and underway, sometimes a common question can be “how can I expand my customer base?”
One way is to consider doing business with the government. All levels of government regularly seek vendors to supply a variety of goods and services. Doing business with the government can be mutually beneficial because you could become a vendor to the government, generate business and the government is able to use your products or services for their needs.
Other benefits of doing business with the government include:
- Adding credibility to your business if you become a vendor of the government;
- Gaining knowledge of the government’s procurement process;
- Building a business relationship with the government.
