Let’s be clear….trends are more than just what you see “trending” on Twitter.

Trends are general directions in which things are changing or rather the current tendency of the modern times. In today’s society, technology usually leads the way for new and exciting changes.  Technological trends shape the way we communicate, purchase items, and connect for business. Because of this, it is always beneficial for entrepreneurs and small business owners to get the latest 411 on the latest trends.

With the help of Small Biz Chat, let’s discuss the latest trends small business owners and entrepreneurs need to know to succeed in the future:

  1. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning – We at Supplierty News, have been stating this for a while now….AI is the future. Entrepreneurs need to learn how to incorporate AI into their daily lives and technological resources. “Some of the situation where you will need artificial intelligence apart from marketing include website creation, lead collection, and emails.”
  2. The Internet of Things (IoT) – To be completely honest I am not fully up to date on IoT but I see the potential. According to, “The Internet of Things revolves around increased machine-to-machine communication; it’s built on cloud computing and networks of data-gathering sensors; it’s mobile, virtual, and instantaneous connection; and they say it’s going to make everything in our lives from streetlights to seaports smart.” IoT will allow small businesses to turn almost anything into a smart one which is beneficial in measuring data.
