A recession brings change. The recession triggered by the Covid-19 crisis will bring more change than most. In a period of uncertainty, it’s important to be consistent. If your business can be consistent through a recession – in the way you look, in what you say and in what you do – you will build trust. This trust will help you to build stronger relationships: with customers, suppliers and staff.
On this page we share some advice and insight on branding in a recession. We explain how your brand can bring consistency and drive your business success; not just through the recession, but into the recovery as well. We hope you find it useful!
