Recession Business Strategies


The simple fact is that you need to have a good business strategy in a recession. Without one you’ll soon find yourself in deep financial trouble. Sometimes things aren’t as they seem, but you can’t afford to ignore having the right strategy for these times.

Head-to-Head With the Recession

Many firms are already being hit hard by the recession. Some regions were already economic trouble before the latest down turn. For them, it’s only gotten worse. Many have watched as their good, long term, customers, vendors and other associates have gone out of business. Many of these companies have been in business for ten or more years.

The bottom line is that you won’t be able to evade this recession. You will be head-to-head with it no matter what you do.

Small Business Recession Survival Strategies

  • Invest significant time researching more efficient ways run your business
  • Look closely at your whole business operation.
  • Find more creative ways to meet your customers needs
  • Avoid incurring additional costs.
  • Look for great business opportunities
  • Adapt your product(s) to meet the changing needs of your marketplace
  • Be prepared to use financial recovery techniques if they’re needed
  • Control your costs
  • Improve communication within and outside your company
  • Find weak points in your supply chain
  • Search for alternative methods to return your business to profitability
  • Fire underperforming employees
  • ‘Fire’ underperforming, but troublesome, customers

Remember that it will probably take at least 3 months for the your recession survival strategy to start working so begin now. The full effects of any changes you make now won’t show up until much later in many instances. However, you will be glad that you did when you survive the recession.
