Effects of Economical Slowdown on Import-Export Business

Life and economy, both are like a symphony of up and down notes. So, if the economy can peak, it can bow down as well. In fact, the latter scenario is occurring more now days. And even when it doesn’t, the commercial market is always vulnerable to the threat of an economical slowdown. An economical slowdown is a phase where financial trends pertain to growing unemployment, unhealthy stock market, decrease in GDP, and drop in personal income & sales etc. As a decline in the GDP translates to economical slowdown, this period precedes recession.

As economy and the business sector, both have a major commercial angle hence the slowdown in the former would affect the latter for sure. The initial effect is the decline in the consumer spending because of the loss in income (it’s the spending that drives much of an economy). Any economy consists of imports and exports by parts. So, less spending translates to less demand; less demand eventually converts to less supply. Hence, the chain of import and export gets affected severely. This chain worsens during the post economic process – the recession.

The commercial entities getting affected by a slowdown would try cutting down some of the below tasks:
  • No or less hiring of new employees
  • No or less buying of new equipment and machinery
  • Limiting or a complete restrain on research and development
  • May be no new product rollouts
On the overall, expenditures are reduced in everything from marketing to production and so on.

Economical slowdowns affect the import and export business like a viscous cycle; one thing goes down, then another and the effect multiples. Due to slowdowns, companies’ stock price and dividends may decline; the investment in public companies gets decreased due to the ‘investment withdrawal’ phenomenon.

In addition, it has been observed that during and post slowdowns, marketing strategies get altered. And on such occasions, the import-export business planning is chaos, leading to more chaos. Lastly, not everything gets affected negatively as many manufacturers try to get even with the import-export loss by flooding the local market with goods and services laced with attractive discounts and products at throwaway prices.

Some Practical Tips to Promote Businesses in B2B Space

B2B refers to business to business, as in commercial transfers between 2 businesses. To put it in a simpler way, B2B is a transaction of a company to another; an example of such a process is the transaction between a wholesaler and a retailer or the prior transaction - between a manufacturer and wholesaler. The functioning of the B2B sector depends on a variety of factors as follows:
  • Duration
  • Marketing and public relations
  • Legal aspects

Duration, also dubbed as the time aspect is nothing but following the chain of requirements with respect to time. The winter sets anytime post September, so the manufacturers would pass on the products to wholesalers at least a month prior (goods need time to move from wholesalers to retailers as well), so B2B activities need to be time bound. In addition, the legal aspects in terms of production, transport, norms, standards etc. also hold ground during the B2B transactions and activities.

Lastly, one of the most important elements of the B2B transaction is the marketing aspect; manufacturers might produce the best of products, but wholesalers need to be aware of the fact, right? And how is this initiated, retained and regularized? It is via B2B marketing. Some factors which would help you in the B2B marketing world are listed as follows:
  • Start at the right time; distribute the marketing angle in phases and plan prior to the year-cycle-start.
  • 10 % of your budget on B2B marketing is the standard practice, but 15 % is the ideal.
  • Marketing should depend on the product. High end products should have a different marketing strategy accommodating places and informative hubs visited by the targeted audience; same ways, medium and low range products should have visibility corresponding to the audience of that segment.
  • The thumb rule is - 50 % marketing force for existing customers and 50 % for generating new sales, new customers. Remember the cost-thrown increases with time, so bringing in new customers is the key.
  • Offering discounts to everyone is fine, but loans and lending should be only to trusted customer.

Lastly, the most important thing is: planning and execution should correspond well. So, offering the marketing of your B2B products to trusted third party firms is actually a better idea at times.
