But do you know some businesses thrive and grow during a recession? Accountants fall in these group of ‘right’ businesses.

As an accountant, you may not experience the pain of other businesses and may in fact blossom if you incorporate the right strategies.

Here are some strategies you should consider:

And it’s not all negative — when the government updates, expands, or regulates its Benefit programs during recessions, people want to know.

Talk about these things, help people understand the changes happening in their business and personal finances.

All you need is a form of digital presence. Go on a live stream video, offer free consulting services to your clients, answer your audience’s real time questions.

It is a great way to relate with your audience and grow a trusting relationship, that may turn out to be mutually beneficial.

Strategy 3 Write a Book

Okay, this may sound a little farfetched for guys who prefer locking themselves up to churn figures and chase endless streams of accounting paper trail.

Help them by writing a book on a subject matter that’s is of interest to them. For instance, you can write a book about how to utilize tax benefits during recession Better still make it a free eBook downloadable from your website.

That’s free marketing to a clientele you would otherwise have spent thousands of advertising dollars getting through your door.

Strategy 4 — Identify Top Revenue-driving Activities

These last piece of advice is about housekeeping rather than marketing. Identify top revenue-driving activities in your business, and preserve only those areas that are profitable.

When you understand what’s working in your business, you will make informed decisions on such matters as budgeting, purchasing, staffing, and marketing. You will also prioritize key revenue components to create a sustainable framework that protects your business from imploding.
