Combating the Uncertain Business Landscape by Optimizing Your Business Model
We're back for season 3 and diving right into the current business landscape and some of the strategies we've seen clients successfully implement to navigate the uncertainty. The tumultuous economic situation, supply chain difficulties, inflation, and continued ripple effects from the global pandemic shape the way businesses engage with customers. We discuss how these marketplace dynamics are likely to impact the holiday season that's usually regarded as a bountiful time for businesses in "normal" years.
Now despite this being a period of contraction in many industries (such as technology who's been in the news a lot lately), we warn that businesses should avoid cutting back too much on outbound efforts. The risk of minimal communication is--in many cases--greater than the cost to maintain some level of marketing that keeps your brand in front of existing and prospective customers.
One of the best strategies for combatting slow times is identifying more sustainable business practices. This means optimizing your revenue model to create a cash flow buffer. It also involves leveraging technologies that make the job of marketing your business more time and cost effective.
