Small Business in COVID-19: Annual Business Planning

Here we are in June and COVID-19 is still with us in some form or other.

For many small businesses, we are still in or starting recovery mode. To use the war analogy, the wounds are still sore and we are wary.

As I engage with Teik Oh Dot Com’s members who are using our online products, a large proportion are still working from home, or have rostered their team into the office to keep numbers down. Things are still quiet and it is clear that “normality” is a long way away.

This sense of being quiet and watching to see what will happen can lead to a dead-end though!

Now, more than ever, it’s true that “if you do nothing, a very strange thing happens – nothing!”

So, despite business being quiet, despite our fears and worries making us psychologically frozen, despite not knowing what’s around the corner, we still need to plan ahead.

Here’s what you need to do.

Three Reasons Why Leadership Grows Your Business

As a small business owner, you may be up to your armpits in fixing a bushfire or working after hours keeping up with the bookkeeping.

You hear about people saying that a business needs leadership to guide it to success and maybe you think that’s fine for some but in the real world, it’s pretty much BS!

Where have you got the time?

And anyway you own and run a small business. At best you only have a handful of people working for you and they seem to be doing what they’re told!

Small Business in COVID-19: Planning Your Way To Recovery

It looks like more and more restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic are being relaxed.

For those of us in small business, this is great news.

Some of us may still be wary and worried about contracting the disease as these restrictions are lifted, but even so, we’ll be relieved we can try to get back to business as usual.

But you probably know as I do, that this will take time.

So, it’s important to take some steps now so that we are as prepared as possible for the time when all restrictions are removed.

I have five things for you to think about.

Small Business in COVID-19: Marketing During COVID-19

Last week I wrote about four strategies to employ during the current pandemic crisis to keep your business going.

This week I wanted to talk about how you can still continue marketing during the crisis.

First of all, let’s get this straight – I have heard a lot of people say that they feel awkward marketing during the crisis because they feel everyone is in the same boat.

That’s only half true – everyone is in the same boat, but why does that equate to not doing business?

So, let’s look at how you can still conduct your marketing even during the lockdown.

Small Business in COVID-19: Business Strategies During COVID-19

In these unprecedented times, I just wanted to quickly share some business strategies you can implement during the COVID-19 crisis to ensure your business survives and even get ready to come out fighting.

First, I want to send out best wishes to all the small business owners out there who are doing it tough.

I can’t imagine any small business owner, whether or not you have had to shut your business, who hasn’t seen an effect on their business.

Even if you haven’t had to shut, the unprecedented fall in foot and other traffic would have had a critical effect on income, and your staff may have had to be stood, down, laid off, or been unable to leave self-isolation to get to work. In one way or other all small businesses would have been affected.

However, there are things you can do to lock down your business and prepare it to restart when the restrictions are lifted.
