Business News Is About Companies, Industries and Economy

Business news is about companies, industries and economies. A business is an enterprise that produces and sells products or services to customers in exchange for money. A business may be for-profit, with profits reinvested into the company, or not-for-profit, investing profit into a mission like social welfare or the improvement of infrastructure. Some businesses are privately owned, and others are publicly owned through stock markets or are state-owned.

The concept of business is as old as civilization itself. Early civilizations cultivated trade and economics to exchange goods, services, and information with their neighbors. The modern business world grew out of these trading networks, with the first public companies emerging in the 1700s. Eventually, the business world expanded to include more than just trading but also finance and investment.

As the business world grew, so did news about it. Today, there are countless sources of business news that cover the financial market, consumer trends, company mergers and acquisitions, job openings, industry forecasts, and much more. Business news is available across a wide range of media outlets, from print and online to television and radio.

For established companies, startup entrepreneurs and small- to medium-size enterprises alike, landing coverage in larger general business news outlets can be a challenge. These large outlets often focus on big-ticket items or groundbreaking events, and can be reluctant to cover smaller stories that don’t fit the mold. That’s why it’s often more effective to pitch industry – or “trade” – publications, where readers and reporters are more likely to be interested in your story.
