SMALL BUSINESS SURVIVAL DURING COVID19
COVID19 affects each of us personally as well as in the realm of small business. Within this new environment,
a business needs to brainstorm all avenues of access to keep moving forward.
1) BE PREPARED TO ADAPT
Moment by moment change requires agility and adaptation as you wade through current events and press forward within new opportunities to serve your clients.
2) ASK FOR HELP
A realization of your need for help as you network with other business owners, gleaning from their supportive advice through social media groups as well as email.

3) REACH OUT TO CUSTO
MERS & COMMUNITY
Though a certain measure of distance is mandatory, we need not isolate relationships. Reaching out to clients, meeting them where they are at through appropriate media channels; fosters ongoing interaction and revelation of their needs.
4) GET CREATIVE GO DIGITAL
If your business is not online now is the time to do so. Register with Google business for free; becoming available to your clients as you create a website or online business store. Various free website hosts such as WIX, SquareSpace, WordPress along with Shopify, Etsy and Amazon are available to assist you.
5) CUTTING COSTS
As you shift your business you will experience the inevitable loss of revenue; demanding a consideration of techniques to conserve costs, such as
-gift cards, redeemable at a later date
-return of unsold stock
-reduction of work hours; reducing payroll cost
6) THE USE OF GoFundMe
The use of a crowdfunding website such as GoFundMe, as a community outreach can raise an awareness and generate financial support; thereby keeping your business afloat and moving forward.
