The primary difference between small businesses and micro small businesses is that micro businesses don't have a dedicated server. Many times the competition is willing to work for less money than you, so you are forced to either lower your rates or lose the clients.
Your biggest advantage over the competition is that most of them have day jobs so they are unable to help the customers quickly. Instead, the micro small business can call you to come in immediately to offer assistance. Generally, though, micro small businesses are a good start, but with the low rates and little need of IT services, you need to begin looking for larger clients in the future.
