- How can small businesses and startups Get Over a Crise Without shutting down?
- Create a survival plan:
- Create a plan, consult your team on it, and consider their insights. What you need to remember is that every situation is unique and expects you to come up with a novel solution for it. What worked in the past may not work right now. What works right now may not work later. Focus on the current situation, which means you have to design your business to face these challenging times. The market is not going to resume normalcy immediately. It’s going to take time to revive and rebuild the economy. Base your crisis plan on this understanding. You can choose to go back to the old business plan once you attain stability. Examine the damage caused and how it can get worse. Think of the ways to limit the damage. Next, think of what will happen if you start growing. Set a limit to your growth in these times as the faster you rise, the quicker you may fall. So, know the point that you shouldn’t cross.
- Shaping your business again will demand you to make some difficult decisions. Try to list decisions as per their importance. Think if you can avoid some painful decisions (like layoff) without incurring a further loss. Create a list of bills that you have to pay and a detailed budget for the coming months. See which bills you can pay once you have enough money.
- Remember to speak to the stakeholders and explain your plan to them. Don’t promise anything if you are not confident of where the business is heading. However, keep them informed. Talk to your employees. Reassure them that the team efforts will sustain the business, and the group support will keep the team together. Be there for your employees in this tough time, and listen to their concerns carefully. It’s not just about the business. It’s about building a strong foundation that can face any problems. Interact and empathize with your customers. Extend your support to ensure their well-being, like deferring payment or offering a discount. This step will make a difference to your business, securing a strong relationship with the clients.
- Think positively:
- A crisis may present to you the chance to change the way your business functions and adopt new measures to enhance performance. See this time as the opportunity to try out new possibilities. Survival in these times isn’t about growing. It’s about sustaining what you already have through what you can do now. The goal is to get through this, from one side of the crisis to another.
