Interest rates in Australia are at an all time low.

Those of us old enough to remember with HORROR the interest rates inflicted on us by Paul Keating when Australia plunged into the Recession We Had To Have will roll our eyes at the current low rates.

At its peak, I was paying 17.5% per annum on my home loan and a whopping 28% per annum interest on my business loan.

Just to put that in perspective, 28% interest means that every year I was paying more than one quarter of the money I borrowed back to my lender as interest for his generosity, without making any dent into the capital he lent me!!

Now with interest rates at this all time low and heading lower it seems as the government tries to MANAGE these questionable economic times, it’s a really good time to take a good look at those things that you can do in your business to beat the recession and power through any economic downturn.

Customer Service and Internal Marketing.

People do business with people they like.

If your customers and patients have an emotional connection with your team members and with you and your practice, then chances are those customers will maintain their loyalty to you and your practice.

After all, their dental needs are their health needs, and because you’ve built up this emotional relationship between them and your team, there’s a mutual respect between them and you that is very difficult to dissolve.

When there is no emotional connection, then it’s very easy for “so-called” patients to PUT OFF or defer their necessary treatments.

Which isn’t good for them.

External Marketing.

In difficult economic times, many businesses cut their advertising budgets and expenses in an effort to save money.

For the astute business owner, difficult economic times can present advertising opportunities.

Firstly, with less businesses advertising, advertisers will be looking for businesses who actually want to advertise…they will have more ADVERTISING SPACE to fill and so opportunity to pick up ad space at a lower rate [i.e. better value] is an opportunity not to be wasted.

Secondly, because your competitors are cutting back their advertising and maybe even cancelling it, to the population in general out there who need your services it is going to seriously look as though you are the ONLY business in town able to help them.

So make sure you’ve put plenty of money away for a rainy day… because while all your competitors are trying to scrape by, this is the opportunity for you to posture your business in its best position.
