Costs are increasing. It's not news. We notice it at the supermarket, the car dealership, and particularly at the gas pump. We are noticing something new because of a combination of slowing economic growth and increased labor expenses.
Hiring restrictions and layoffs are being imposed on organizations including Tesla, Netflix, Wells Fargo, and Carvana. An impending recession is being warned about by banks and economists.
If you were a business owner during the previous recession 15 years ago, you might be experiencing unpleasant flashbacks. And if your company hadn't already existed at the time, worry about the future might have begun to set in.
We've all had to deal with inflation, the Great Resignation, and the ensuing rise in labor costs. But as of late, we've seen some fresh developments:
· Mass layoffs at some relatively well-known companies
· Consumer spending shifting from commodities to services
· The potential recession's foundation
As a result, it could be time to reconsider how we do business as we perhaps approach a recession. Here are some suggestions for coping with increased expenditures (with or without a recession).
1. Reduce Extraneous Expenses
How often have you purchased something and then realized that you didn't need it? If you're like many people, you've undoubtedly experienced it once or twice (per year, month, week, or day?)If a recession occurs and you don't take the essential precautions to protect your business from it, you will be in danger very soon.
2. Maintaining Cash Flow
The lifeblood of practically any firm is cash flow. managing your cash flow, whether it is by increasing your accounts receivable efforts, negotiating a payment plan with vendors for your accounts payable, or limiting recruiting to keep staff costs in check.
3. Manage your spending
Pre-profit founders must increase their runway and make the capital they raised go further, particularly during a downturn in the economy.
4. Small pivots are crucial.
Examine your business strategy and direct more personnel and resources into areas that will increase or maintain revenue. Shortly, consider reducing the amount spent on advertising media and utilizing services like retargeting, email marketing, or improved organic social media efforts.
5. Be wise in your decisions
Consult your board, advisors, mentors, and other people who have dealt with economic instability for advice. Combine your hard facts with genuinely accurate trend estimates. Choose after gathering information, feedback from the leadership team, and advice from mentors or advisers.
