We all find ourselves in circumstances that we never imagined could or would happen and we now have to adapt to the changing business environment. Standing still is not an option.
Many businesses are seeing this as an opportunity to make changes to their business model in order to meet the changing demands.
For many this means moving their business online, delivering services in a different way or offering something new which will solve a problem which has now materialised.
With a lot of people isolated or remote working, can you deliver rather than sell from a shop for instance? Can you offer Zoom calls rather than face to face meetings? What is the problem your customers are looking to solve and how can you help them?
Thinking outside the box is a new concept for a lot of people and takes them totally out of their comfort zone but it’s not always a bad thing to review your business, see what your customers want and how you can best deliver the solution.
No-one imagined that the changes would come this quickly or on this scale but we can’t change what’s happened. What we can do is react to it in a positive way, embrace the change and move forward.
