In business, the market you get into when you start out changes over time and, depending on a host of factors, it could start to decline. 

Market size shrinks, consumer growth slows and revenues dip. That last part is what any entrepreneur would want to avoid. Without revenue, your business might as well pack up. 

But do not fret. Here are three ways to stay ahead of the pack, even in a declining market:

 

  • Have an awesome product: This speaks for itself. If you don’t have a product/service/brand worth selling, sales aren’t going anywhere. Tweak and reinvent if you have to to. Enough said. 

  • Don’t compromise on talent: Your efforts to revitalise your business are going to be in vain if the talent you have [or are bringing in] cannot match up to the task. Go for people who value quality of work over quantity of time.

  • Stand out: Whatever you do, NEVER blend in in any way with the competition and other players in your market. Look for the deals no one else is making. Go for the areas no one is looking at. Be different and stand out. 

There are few things as bad as having to navigate a bad or declining market, especially if you are an entrepreneur. It is not easy. But you have to pull through it if you want to be successful, and these three ips are a good start.
