Across all forms of media, services have been popping up or businesses have been adapting their services to help and support their communities. They are doing this without flouting the Government rules.
Consider whether there’s a goodwill gesture your business can offer, or a delivery or support service your business can provide, online tutorials/advice etc.
In these uncertain times it’s important to stay busy. So whether your business has had to shut up shop all together or can still operate, there might be something that your business can offer that the community around you are crying out for.
All businesses have got things that need to be done but that get put to the bottom of the pile. Filing, ensuring accounts are all up to date, reviewing suppliers, considering promotions, planning for the months ahead etc.
And let’s be honest, there are things that can be done around the home too. From decorating and DIY, gardening and home and car maintenance, to sitting back and watching a film, reading a good book or allowing the creative juices to flow.
In our experience businesses often struggle to review the content within their websites during usual working hours, let alone have a chance to update it. As we are all faced with an abundance of time now, there’s no excuse!
If it has been a while since the content of your website was reviewed perhaps it’s time to take a look at rewriting it. This can help ensure your business is being positioned in the best possible way and targeted at the relevant audience.
While this is a scary time for all of us, we are all in this together. There’s no doubt we will feel the effects of lockdown in many areas of our lives for the months ahead. In moments of down time, it’s easy for small business internet marketing to be carried out from the comfort of your sofa.
We sincerely hope your business can survive during this time of lockdown. And have a chance to thrive when the world pulls through this. But more importantly we hope you and your family stay healthy and remain unscathed as COVID-19 threatens to spread over the course of the coming weeks.
