How to navigate rising costs and tougher times

The last two years have been a series of highs and lows, leaving businesses trying to forecast for the future and navigate rising costs as best they can. As the government lifted restrictions and life returned to normalcy, ecommerce gains from lockdowns tapered off, leaving some businesses worried about what happens next.

There are many things your business can do to continue advancing towards your goals even as customers cut back on their spending. After all, being small is a superpower in times of strife. You can act faster, change quicker and adapt.

A recession doesn’t mean the end of customer spending entirely, but there is a dip in sales. The key to capturing those customers who are still spending is understanding your audiences and what they need or want.
