Covid Changing the Industry

Hello everyone,

Covid has affected our industry and especially the business side, and was wondering if any have any tips for keeping your business going strong, or ideas?

Thanks again!

Re: Covid Changing the Industry

My core business imploded last March, I now have my first premises in 25 years of self employment, and my accounts just completed and submitted were not brilliant but lovable. Oddly the new version means my turnover is much higher, but actual profit lower, and revolves around selling equipment that others use. My old business was services, and that client base has shut down. People are still making their stuff but itís all gone in house, so I service some of their needs. Entertainment, where the old business is centred, might come back in the summer, but then Iíll have a dilemma. Keep the new business and the old business running to maximise profit, but work much harder, or let the new business go into hibernation, and hope covid remains quiet? I donít know.

Re: Covid Changing the Industry

Interesting.....my whole business model is built around serving the same clients year after year, and as businesses and corporations close or hold back, its a waiting game. We did start really pushing product videos, and have gotten business from all over the world, but as with anything, its a slow process building up.
