I speak to an meet a lot of different business owners and every single one has a differing view on what life after this crisis will look like.

For many it will be a gradual return to business as usual and others it will be a slightly different version of the past.

I think they are wrong and I think businesses should be preparing for very different times ahead.

There is no doubt that the Government JobKeeper (& Seeker) programs have saved Australia from a great depression, but things will not be returning to normal any time soon and here is what I think people are missing.

Unemployment is going to be a thing – A big thing.

Hundreds of businesses have closed and many won’t return and come October when the Government funding runs out, people who have been saved the initial pain of this situation will suddenly be faced with the reality that they are actually unemployed and will join a long queue at Centerlink.

This will change the spending capability of consumers put simply discretionary spending is going to take a hit.

The Real Estate Market will stall.

The current situation of rent freezes and defaults may rectify to some degree, but unemployment is going to continue to put strain our real estate sector. People on Mortgage Freezes now will be faced with their mortgages restarting. But the real problem may lie in the ongoing restrictions of travel and MIGRATION.

With Australian property investors so heavily reliant on population growth to maintain and push demand our lack of immigration will quickly show, mortgage and rental defaults could make many properties worth considerably less or even unsellable. This will change our wealth structure and again spending will take a hit.

Our war of words with China will hurt.

The current war of words with China of the origins and handling of the situation will potentially alter our trade relationship with them for a long time. An our exports will also take a hit, and the cash cow of Chinese students will hit our education sector and tourism as if not already reeling from COVID-19 will also see a reduction in Chinese tourists. The impact will be felt throughout the economy but think of those businesses built around this market such as student accommodation will be severely impacted.

So the economy may well be hit HARD and I don’t think there has been any real discussion around what the government is going to do beyond October. And I don’t think many businesses are in the head space to either given the shell shock of this situation.

No one has a crystal ball so none of those may necessarily DIRECTLY impact your business, but at a macro level they may well alter the economic conditions we all trade within and it also means some new things to consider in terms of HOW your promote your business.


So what can you do.

  1. Build brand recognition – At this moment just being a survivor of the crisis will say something about your business – especially in sectors heavily impacted by the crisis.Post crisis however, people will potentially be left with an abundance of choice (in some sectors) and in some cases a level of scepticism as to what reflects a good deal. With less money to spend and offers likely to be coming from everywhere as people try and move stock, re-establish cashflow and just generally compete for sales – the power of your brand will be vital in providing trust and a point of differentiation beyond price.


  1. Reward your loyal customers – With stock potentially sitting around for extended periods many businesses will go into discount mode. This may be a short term strategy that dilutes the value of your brand and product/service – so consider offering heavy discounts to existing or loyal customers as a special offer first. This has a few positive outcomes strategically, 1) It rewards those customers who have been loyal to your business first 2) It tests the market and will provide market feedback as to the markets sentiment 3) It does it without public dilution of your prices to new customers.
  2. Sharpen the product offering – with less money circulating in the economy there may be less breadth in terms of the spectrum of (what was) your customer base. So look at your numbers and consider honing down to a smaller more focussed product suite that reflect your most VALUABLE product lines. Hone in on who your core customers are, who are the most valuable and focus your marketing budget on reaching them more effectively.

The market may very well be different than what it was prior to the COVID-19 crisis however, if we consider that the Australian economy may well have been on the way to a major recession any way – One massive positive may well be that whilst the economic situation, post COVID-19 may be soft – there will be a huge effort on behalf of the government (governments around the world) to accelerate the economy and people will generally be equally focused on recovery from the crisis rather then bogged down by the rhetoric of a recession.

Can we help you?

  31. Abnehmen und abnehmen lassen
    Manchmal scheint das Abnehmen unerreichbar und schwer zu erreichen.
    Nach ein paar Wochen Diät kann die Motivation schwinden, und es kann verlockend sein, aufzugeben. Manche Menschen sind erfolgreich beim Abnehmen. wie gefährlich ist reduslim schaffen sie es, ihr Gewicht zu halten und nicht
    wieder zuzunehmen? Wie schaffen es diese Menschen, so erfolgreich abzunehmen? Was ist der
    Sich klar definierte Ziele zu setzen, ist einer der wichtigsten Schritte bei der Gewichtsabnahme.
    Wollen Sie abnehmen, um in die alten Kleider zu passen, die
    Sie früher getragen haben, oder sind Ihre Ziele ehrgeiziger?
    Möchten Sie sich besser und gesünder fühlen?
    Sie sollten sich ein Abnehmziel setzen, um sich selbst ein Ziel zu setzen.
    Führen Sie Buch über Ihre Fortschritte. Schreiben Sie alles auf,
    z. B. die Kalorienzufuhr, die Lebensmittel, die Sie zu sich
    nehmen, und die Getränke, die Sie trinken. Achten Sie
    darauf, dass Sie häufig in Ihr Abnehmtagebuch schreiben und sich
    nur einmal in der Woche wiegen. Halten Sie in dem Tagebuch fest, was Sie täglich essen und
    wo Sie es essen. Wenn Sie aufschreiben, was Sie essen, können Sie
    sich besser daran erinnern, gesündere Entscheidungen zu treffen.
    Erlauben Sie sich nicht, Mahlzeiten auszulassen, denn das erhöht nur die Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass Sie schlechte Entscheidungen in Bezug auf Lebensmittel
    treffen. Verhindern Sie, dass Sie in diese Falle tappen. Planen Sie Ihre Mahlzeiten und
    Snacks im Voraus. Nehmen Sie sie mit, wenn Sie nicht zu Hause
    sind. Nehmen Sie ab heute Ihr eigenes Mittagessen mit.
    Das ist nicht nur eine gute Möglichkeit, Gewicht zu verlieren, sondern spart auch Geld.

    Jeder erfolgreiche und gesunde Plan zur Gewichtsabnahme
    kombiniert vernünftige Bewegung und einen ausgewogenen Ernährungsplan. Um die nötige Energie zu gewinnen, müssen Sie sich jede Woche Zeit für regelmäßigen Sport nehmen.
    Wenn Sie sich nicht gerne bewegen, suchen Sie sich körperliche Aktivitäten, die Ihnen Spaß machen, und führen Sie diese regelmäßig durch.
    Gehen Sie mit Freunden spazieren oder gehen Sie in einen Tanzclub.

    Auch wenn es offensichtlich ist, hilft es Ihnen, Junkfood
    zu vermeiden. Halten Sie Ihre Küche voll mit gesunden Lebensmitteln. Kaufen Sie keine Lebensmittel, von denen Sie wissen, dass Sie sie
    nicht essen sollten. Eine einfache Möglichkeit, Junkfood zu
    vermeiden, das Ihr Abnehmziel gefährden kann, besteht darin, es gar nicht erst
    zu kaufen.
    Suchen Sie sich einen Trainingspartner, mit dem Sie jederzeit gemeinsam trainieren können. Wenn Sie nur sich selbst gegenüber rechenschaftspflichtig sind, können Sie das, was Sie tun müssen, leicht aufschieben. Sie werden sich gegenseitig motivieren können. Sie können sich auch gegenseitig helfen, indem
    Sie hilfreiche Ratschläge geben, bei Bedarf motivieren und aufmuntern, wenn jemand auf seinem Weg der Gewichtsabnahme ein Hindernis
