Tough Times for Business

I found this great conference and I want to share some of what I am learning. I am including a link at the bootom of the page if you want to learn more.

We’re going to talk about the recession and some tips we’ve found work well for retooling the business in these tough times. These are some really great tips!


Now is the time to get rid of employees and hire freelancers and other professionals online or around your city. Labor is a fixed cost but with the variety of outsourcing options you can change those fixed costs and save you money over the long term.

Excess expenses

Now is the time to look at office space, memberships, internet usage and a top down examination of every single expense looking ways to save money. While they may seem elementary sometimes we forget the simple things. If you have already done this step then you should re-evaluate some things you didn’t sacrifice the first time.  If you can’t sacrifice anything else then that’s the perfect transition to my next point.

Free Internet Marketing

There are plenty of free ways to market yourself online now and the nice thing is that they are accessible to everyone. Using facebook, social bookmarking, twitter, and other technologies is a great way to get new customers, network with other professionals and much more. The other great thing is that at the conference you will learn how to effectively use these tools in your business.

In short these tips should get you started on getting your business ship-shape for the recession. One the best things you can do for your business is attend the Thrive Super Conference. You will go home with notes methods and a variety of new technologies that will catapult your business forward.
