Doing Business in Salem Massachusetts

In today’s busy marketplace it’s important to get the basics right when you are setting up a business enterprise. One of the most important considerations is where you will locate your business. Some business people might initially think that location is not really very important because of globalisation and digital shopping but the location of your start-up can have far reaching implications because of taxes and the incentives and policies of the city or county and the state. The profile of the customers that you are targeting is also vital data – where are they, who are they, when do they want to buy and how?

Massachusetts has a long history and Salem is one of the most historical places in Massachusetts. Salem is also one of the most chronicled towns in the US because of the Salem Witch trials in 1692=93 when nineteen citizens of Salem were executed by hanging for supposed witchcraft. Situated 16 miles north of Boston, Salem is now a small resort town. Green in its ecological ethos, liberal in its politics and friendly to all, Modern Salem is a very different place to the deeply superstitious, judgemental and extremist town of old. It’s now a town of professionals with a median age of 37 and a bright future.

Massachusetts and Salem offer a variety of incentives and deductions for new businesses setting up in Salem. The town is focussed on tourism and the arts and crafts – mostly small businesses – but business people also settle in Salem because it has a calm peaceful ambience that belies its tragic past.

The Salem commercial community benefits from many policies supporting business to grow and flourish, from storefront improvement programs to property tax exemptions for property improvements and incentives for employing and retaining staff.

There are some good schools in Salem and it is known as a safe town with a real community spirit. Salem is very walkable, just remember your warm coat in the snowy season. The Salem community takes real care to protect the local environment because for many of its tourists Salem is very much a step back into the past – so preserving the past is good for business.

Salem housing is reasonably expensive but that’s the price of living in a small historical town with its quaintness and huge tourist popularity – popular not only for Americans but for tourists all across the world. The lifestyle here is friendly and nature focussed with fabulous farmers markets and a great restaurant scene. Some of the best places to live in Salem are Darby Street, Collins Cove and the McIntire Historic District. To tell the truth the traffic is not best – especially at tourist time, we have got some public transport although car transport is the best alternative for getting around. The Salem population is quite diverse with a notable percentage of Spanish speakers and it’s a certain character that can turn a place with such a horrid past into a delightful place to reside.

Besides our Salem Witches history there are some other great things to experience in Salem – we are very proud of the Peabody Essex Museum – with roots going back to 1799 the museum was originally based on the curiosities that Salem ship captains brought back from their travels across the world. Its now a world renowned museum and well worth a visit.
