Prepare For The Next Disaster: Ample Liquid Savings

Prepare For The Next Disaster: Ample Liquid Savings

Cash is the true sign of the health of a business.

When whole industries ground to a halt last year, survival depended on how long companies could survive on the money they had stashed away. It is crucial to have enough money to survive at least three months with no income, but six to 12 months would be better. This goal should be prioritized and tracked quarterly, along with sales and profits.

Companies should be looking to maximize flexibility so they can more quickly respond to changing conditions.

Suggestions: Reviewing of financial and workforce agreements and exploring options that would increase flexibility, such as establishing lines of credit with banks, renegotiating payment terms with vendors, considering a flexible workspace rental, and rethinking fixed labor contracts.

In a downturn, most owners follow their immediate instincts and dramatically cut costs in an attempt to outrun any revenue shortfall. Unfortunately, these moves leave them entirely unable to respond to the inevitable rebound.

In a disaster, a strong online presence can help a business develop new sources of income. “Focus on the online ‘buying journey,’” says Mark Verwoert, founder of digital marketing company Mark’d Agency in the Netherlands.

Even if consumers continue to frequent brick-and-mortar stores, “90% of all customers will research your product online.”

Prepare For The Next Disaster: Launch low-work, high-income products and services.

It is crucial to building an arsenal of high-revenue products and services that require the lightest lifts. Times of crisis require the ability to stay light, lean, and agile.
