Melbourne, Australia (PressExposure) July 27, 2009 -- A survey conducted by AMEX in August indicated that almost 1/2 of small â mid size business owners believed the current economic situation was negatively impacting their profits. 2 out of every 5 of these business owners also believed that they were at risk of going out of business because of the declining economic climate.

Competitors are closing their doors - which means more potential customers for the businesses that DO survive. Today is the best time to take steps to revamp marketing efforts and respond to the needs of your target market. In these challenging times, itâs going to take more than âthinking outside the boxâ and goodwill with existing customers to secure the survival of most businesses.
