Staying In Business During A Recession

Remember the definition of “Insanity” (My abbreviated version)? Doing the same thing that you’ve always done and expecting different results? Is that how you’re going to outwit the current economy?

If that’s your plan, good luck. However, if your business has slowed down, maybe you need to change your thinking…and the things you’re doing. As we’ve discussed yesterday – you have to know where your business is coming from. Once you know that, you can adapt to become more successful.

Who are your clients? What do they have in common? And what is appealing to them? Why do they do business with you? Is it your service? Your product? Your employees? Your personal touch? Your willingness to go the extra mile? Whatever it is – use it to your advantage and expand on it.

Check out this article by Dosh Dosh, to start thinking outside the box. (And no, huge ads like the “Ram Challenge” are not needed. Be creative and keep your audience in mind!)

Just because we’re all trying to save money and “go back to basics” doesn’t mean you should stop doing what brings you business! Unless all your business comes from referrals, advertising needs to be part of your business plan.

What changes are you making to outlast the current economy?
