Is What You’re Doing Now Working? In a Few Months, It May Not!

Many fear a recession is coming. The headlines are full of impending downturns, layoffs, and potential warning signs. Although there are different opinions on what will happen, we know that things are changing. What you are doing now may be working, but in a few months, it may not.

In her recent blog post, Business Expert and Keynote Speaker Meridith Elliott Powell shared hopeful insights on this newsworthy topic. Although there may be obstacles ahead, she believes none of these things should prevent you from growing if you are open to adapting your strategy.

No matter what the marketplace does, there is opportunity; a lot of opportunity!!

Here are some highlights of the valuable keys shared in Meridith’s blog titled “Recession Changes Everything: 5 Must-Have Strategies to Grow No Matter What the Economy Does”:

5 Must-Have Strategies to Grow No Matter What the Economy Does

    1. Secure Your Base – you need to begin by talking to your customers. JUST talking to them with no intention of doing anything but learning.
    2. Redefine Customer Service – no longer will remembering your customer’s birthday and being hyper-responsive be considered good customer service.
    3. Super Charge Your Sales Process – when the economy changes, so does your customer’s and prospects’ decision-making process. They both get more unpredictable.
    4. Embrace the Suck – the only way out is through. I learned that phrase years ago from a groovy yoga instructor.
    5. Review and Adjust – and last but not least, you need to realize that some of the things you are doing right now to grow your business will not work in three or four months.

As Meridith shared, we may be in for challenging times and unexpected bumps, but it can be one of your best years!!
