5 Tips to Help Your Business Counter Inflation

December 16, 2021

Businesses could be dealing with inflation due to rising prices and supply chain issues for the next year or more, so it’s important to have a strategy. This episode of On the Mark offers five tactics businesses can consider that might help navigate any potential challenges. Host Gene Marks, a CPA and small-business owner, shares what he has discussed with his clients, including raising prices and using targeted communication through a customer relationship management system to accomplish this. He also suggests practicing shrink-flation by delivering less product while holding prices steady. Consider getting into long-term contracts to reduce risk, as well as buying as much inventory now and finally investing in technology to improve efficiencies.
