What do you do when your business is in crisis? If you’re ready to shut the doors and searching for one final jolt of strategy, what’s the game plan? If this is you, stop. Take a deep breath and watch this video.
You don’t need more products to save you. You don’t need a new service to save you. You don’t need to expand your offerings and meet every niche in the market. Just stop. When you freak you freeze. You become frazzled and can’t think through the things that have made you or saved you in the past.
Take a look at the things you’ve done that are profitable. Focus your attention on doing what actually works. What’s gotten you to this point? Sometimes we get an entrepreneurial hubris that we can do 20 different things based off the one thing we did well. Next thing you know, the thing that actually made money isn’t the priority. Focus on what’s working and make that the priority.
If you’re starting a business and you’re in crisis mode, ask the question, “Does anybody even know your company exists?” You can’t just open up a business, hang a sign outside and expect that people will come. If no one knows you exist, get out there and let them know! Use guerilla marketing or social media. Do something!
