Business Image: A Fresh Start For 2011Only a couple of days into 2011 and the media as usual are painting the gloomy image of what's to come this year. Sure I am as aware as most of the hard times ahead but do we really need all the gloom associated with it. Some companies will fail to survive in the coming months due to any number of reasons closely associated to the recession and heavy breathing in tactics that consumers will almost certainly undertake. The government's initiative to stop spending I disagree with, as my belief for these hard times is NOT to stop spending, but to spend wisely. Some situations will see people out of work and their options will be forced to stop spending. I really feel for these individuals because these are all mothers, fathers, sons and daughters etc and all have their own responsibilities. I feel 2011 may see families group together more and face coming issues as family units.
It's very easy for either ourselves or us allowing the media to talk us into the doom and gloom. Let's not forget, amongst us are companies that are doing very well for many different reason.For some individuals 2011 may spell a year for re-training into a different direction or even seeking an opportunity for self employment. We have just come through some of the coldest weeks on record and that alone for many businesses will create orders and improved cash flow.
Beat The January Blues: What Can Your Business Do?Well I for sure don't have all the answers but one thing I will be doing is staying positive. I personally feel this is the best frame of mind to be in to face what 2011 has to throw at us. Some companies will return after the Christmas and New Year break desperate for things to improve, but struggling to see how this can be done. Companies can only breathe in so far before they fracture the skeleton of their business. Employees should be able to stand by their directors, as they see them doing what they can to help position the business in a better place for the future. Also equally important directors should be able to stand by their employees and understand their feelings of vulnerability etc.
One thing that companies can do that doesn't have to cost the earth and will create a reason to shout out to prospects is re-brand. To re-brand you don't need to change your logo or even your colours etc all you may need is a fresh image. This can be created very cost effectively and prove to be one of your best moves. If you visit www.betterprint.co.uk you will see just how easy it is to create a professional look that will hopefully boost your company's sales.
