Business Positioning for the Future
The world is changing. COVID-19 is impacting everyone’s daily lives, in both big ways and in small. We’ve all had to come to accept a new normal. This pandemic has forced us all, and especially businesses, to evolve. While many of you may be focused on making it through the short term, it is just as important to think through your business positioning for the future. It is vital to consider how your company will operate these next few months and how your company will use this as an opportunity to adapt and move into the future. Establishing your long-term plans for success will help you navigate short-term problems. Although these are challenging times, the discipline to focus today on preparing for tomorrow will be more rewarding than ever.
When focused only on the short term, one’s initial reaction may be to make drastic cuts. Whether it’s to your workforce, various tools used, or simply your overall spending, history has shown us that making large cuts will not benefit your business in the long run. According to CXL.com, when looking back on the recession during 1990-91, researchers found that “… successful leaders, trading lower short-term profitability for long-term gain, refocused rather than cut spending.” Therefore, before you make any big business decisions to benefit in the short term, think ahead and consider your business positioning for the future.
Digital is an Absolute Must
When considering your business positioning for the future, what comes to mind? If digital is not your main focus, perhaps it is time to reprioritize. While our world was already moving towards a digitally-dominated lifestyle, it is now essential for continuing operation. Having a well-built, user-friendly website is critical to your success, but equally important, having e-commerce capabilities are a must in order to maximize profits. Are you equipped to sell goods and services online? Have you built up a digital audience for yourself that you can advertise to? Without a well-established online presence built into your business positioning, it may be a struggle to survive now and keep up with competitors in the long run.
