Making Money in an Economic Downturn

» Introduction
If you're a savvy business person, you understand that an economic downturn is precisely the time you can have a greater impact and get a bigger bang for your marketing buck.
» Step 1
Recession. Economic downturn. Tough economic times. Makes you want to hide under the covers until the storm passes, right? Maybe, but that's the wrong approach. Let's move from fear to facts. A number of studies show that companies that continue or increase their marketing and public relations efforts during tough economic times consistently outperform those who slash their marketing efforts during rough times.

Think about it. If most companies are reacting in a turtle-like fashion and hiding in their shells until the sun comes out again, there's less competition out there; less companies are launching PR campaigns, fewer are reaching the public with <a href=""target="_blank">effective marketing efforts</a>. Suddenly you have media outlets that are looking for stories, particularly some good non-doom and-gloom stories. If you're a savvy business person you know this and understand that this is precisely the time you can have a greater impact and get a bigger bang for your buck. So, look at tough times as your chance to reach your target market and build your business
