Recession-proofing your startup or small business: the challenge of growth

A recent online article featuring in the ‘Small Business Network’ of the Guardian explored the possibility that the perfect time for a startup or small business to take off is during a period of economic downturn. The article states “competitors who fall by the wayside enable well-run firms to expand and increase market share.” On some accounts this line of argument may well be right but what’s important for business owners to realise is that they need to address the issue of scale – an increase in market share will inevitably result in an expansion of your business. Growth is a challenging aspect of running a business and that’s why many entrepreneurs fail to take advantage of the numerous growth-enabling tools that exist today.

As IT support specialists, we are constantly facing the challenge of scale. Once upon a time, it was traditional for businesses to have an in-house IT department or nothing at all. Now, if you run a small business, you’ll probably just ‘Google’ it instead of investing money in IT infrastructure and in a team of techies. So, the issue we come across each day is that small businesses and startups are looking to grow but they lack the tools and struggle to find reasonable price tags.

That’s why we do what we do. Recently we announced our new all-you-need IT service, Business in a Box. We want business owners to truly appreciate the powerful tools available to them today, thanks to advances in technology, so that they can grow their business. We have developed an IT service that is perfect for starups and small businesses and it’s all from one supplier. One support team. One bill. No headaches. If it’s hosted email you’re looking for, a file manager or even business VoIP telephones, then you can choose one or more of our services and pay only for what you need.
