First of all, let’s make sure to talk about the number one way on how the coronavirus has affected us. Confinement. This is key, we have seen in other parts of the world. It is the best way at the moment to stop the spread and propagation of this virus. We are definitely not out of the woods, so we have to be patient and see how your business can generate revenue in this time of crisis.
How Coronavirus has affected your business
Confinement: You can’t meet your clients in person, it prevents you to conduct business as usual. You have to think of ways that technology can assist you in your business. A Fitness instructor can provide Remote Classes through the use of a scheduling/pay app. You are a Real Estate Agent, you can provide virtual home tours. With the technology and resources available at our fingertips, it is easier than ever before to maximize our confinement.
Online Shopping: If you sell products in a B2C model, keep in mind that your clients can’t leave their house, or soon won’t be able to… So they will need to shop online. Let’s see. Do you have an online store? Is it providing results? Can it do better? Now is the time to rethink it… Because if your potential clients cannot find you? or cannot purchase with ease you are losing business every minute.
