No matter what is going on in the world at the minute, your business needs to keep on turning. You might feel like because of the recent coronavirus outbreak, your business is going to be screwed. All we'd suggest is that you make sure you're putting in the right measures now. Begin to cut back on the number of orders you're accepting, and completely scale back your business if you know it's going to be hit by the virus. Many businesses are. Even if you don't get hit because you can't make the sales, you will most definitely get hit with staff illnesses. So if you scale back your business now and cut some costs you shouldn't feel as though your business is being hit too hard. You could also focus your efforts into areas of your business that need a bit of a revamp, now that you're going to have more time on your hands. So, if you keep on reading we'll show you what we think you should be doing.
The brand that you're carrying around with you is going to make a big difference in the way that you are able to conduct business. The more recognizable the brand you can create, the easier it's going to be to get business. What are the two things that tie you to all of the brands that you know so well? It's the logo and any catchphrase or song that they have. The logo is the most common because not every brand has a catchphrase that they live by. Nike has 'Just Do It', for example, but the tick is just as iconic. So have a look at your logo at the minute and see how memorable you think it is. Does it stand out or is it just your brand name in colours? You need to have some sort of image that makes it more interesting or more noticeable. When you have a look at the majority of big brands, they all do!
Now is the time to think about office changes ready to pick your business back up from where you left off if your business does need to shut down. All you need is van hire and a creative mind to get your office looking better than it is now. Some offices just look so dull and boring, yet brands wonder why nobody wants to work productively for them. We know that there is a lot of pressure on businesses to make their office as modern and exciting as possible, and it really isn't hard. All you need is a splash of colour on the walls, some super comfy furniture and a chillout room, a huge TV, and whatever else you can think of to make your office better than average. Out with the old and in with the new definitely applies here.
