SME Research Report


My goal? To succeed and reduce stress!

This quote, from the business founder of a wholesale/retail manufacturing business, goes to the heart of the themes we highlight in our 2017/18 SME Research Report.

This is the third SME Research Report produced by Bstar to provide insights into the opinions and concerns of business owners, and to explain how SMEs are surviving and thriving.

The Report is different; it doesn’t just provide statistics. Throughout the Report SME business owners comment and share ideas on how they are growing, improving, reducing stress and succeeding in their businesses. The Report features powerful insights into:

  • What’s keeping SMEs awake at night;
  • Emerging trends in the SME sector;
  • Top business concerns;
  • Staffing issues, key risks and benchmarks;
  • Most wanted advisory solutions.

If you advise SMEs, you can use the Report insights to deepen your relationships with this valuable client segment and grow your business advisory revenue.

  • To engage existing clients, use the complete Report to secure a Better Business Program engagement or needs assessment meeting.
  • To attract new clients, display the Executive Summary or complete Report on your web site. Furthermore, use the Report insights in your social media campaigns and dealings with centres of influence relationships to promote your service offering and expertise.


SMEs love hearing and learning from their peers, you can brand the Report with your practice logo and contact details* and then share these unique findings with your clients.

Purchase for $66 (INCL. GST), all Bstar Alliance Partners receive a FREE copy of the Report.
