COVID-19 and Business as usual… or not.

COVID-19 Help

Well, I didn’t see that coming.  But here we are, many communities are in a ‘loose’ lockdown, and ‘non-essential’ businesses are either shuttered temporarily or extremely limited in how they can deliver their services or goods.

So what can we do?

Probably what you’ve already done – try to notify folks what changes are being made.  And this communication is important.  Maybe you’re pivoting from brick & mortar operations to online sales.

Here are a few ideas that other folks are doing:

  • Provide content that will help other people, and continue to communicate your business to them.  If appropriate, provide an online ‘tip-jar’ so they can support you.
  • Educate – use your phone & a tripod — live stream video – it may be the best tool to grow your business when you’re not at the office.
  • Is there a local cause that’s helping folks that you can get behind? Announce it, spread awareness. Tell people what they can do.
  • What in your expertise can you be doing? Or what can your clients be doing?
  • Go and interview someone.
  • Can you help your community or client base? Free rent? Services?  Broadcast it!
  • Encourage Facebook or YouTube watch parties of you doing something.

I know this is a tough time for you – it’s impacting everyone.  And I want to help in whatever way I can. Some folks may need a ‘COVID-19’ banner on their website, linking to a page with news.  Maybe you need a simple e-commerce addition to your site.  Maybe you just need a fresh set of eyes to take a look and see if there’s any way to improve.  If so, I want you to contact me.  To the best of my ability and schedule, I’ll do it for free or at a greatly reduced rate while we navigate this.

I’m probably going to post a few articles with tips for dealing with this mess.  If you want to be notified of new posts of this nature, fill out the form.  No spam, I promise.

Slow – A Relative Term

When I say slow, what comes to mind for you?

Driving in Chicago’s rush-hour traffic?  Yeah, done that quite a few times in my youth and try very hard to avoid it now.

Is it time for a change?

Our most important metric Is client results.
