Hopefully, your company is doing well and providing both yourself and your staff with a comfortable style of living, if it is then you are blessed and, probably either really lucky or, doing something really well. For many businesses, the last couple of years have actually meant struggling to break even and even, unexpected negative returns, some businesses were able to stay afloat whereas others had to call it a day;
Could things have been different for those that had to close?
There were many ‘casualties’, in terms of business over the last couple of years, some of which would have been completely unavoidable considering the circumstances, however, there were a large number that could have, with the right help, stayed afloat. Not only that, a large number of the companies that were able to find a way of evolving what they do or offer something different in order to survive have turned things around completely, doing even better than they were before.
It’s all a bit techy
No doubt you’ll be aware that there has been a growing need for managed IT services due to the increased requirement of automation including the other various technical aspects of something like, being told to work from home. There is much more to it than that, but, as a general example, tech is a really good place to start. Some businesses weren’t anywhere close to being set up for working online and having to operate remotely which was a problem for them in many ways.
For IT companies, it’s meant big business and a chance to really showcase what they are capable of, having said that, even some of the IT companies weren’t geared up for the changes and have, unfortunately, gone by the waste side. In this day and age, it’s really important for all companies to find something special to offer, or an angle that is so unique that it doesn’t matter what they sell, people will still buy, a brand can be that powerful.
A new lease of life
For most people, they tend to do the same kind of thing each day, creatures of habit and all that, although, the trouble is, people get bored. With boredom comes laziness and a reduction in quality which absolutely has a knock-on effect on a company’s bottom line as customers sooner or later start to lose faith. You’ll know as a customer that, regardless of what a company does, if they only offer one ‘product or service then, it, or what it represents had better be pretty special.
You had one job to do
If you’ve ever heard the old saying, “you had one job to do and, you’ve not even done that properly” then you’ll hopefully appreciate the underlying humour that goes with it. That aside, it’s actually really important to make sure this kind of thing isn’t said about you or your company because, although there is some humour involved, for someone. The person who is thinking of the ‘one job’ cliché certainly won’t be finding anything funny.
