Shopping around the world has been decimated by the coronavirus.
We all know the advice; stay inside and avoid shops unless it’s essential.
Of course, walk down most high streets and nearly all of the shops you see there will be pretty much shut anyway.
It’s obvious that it’s a worrying time for businesses who are struggling to stay afloat.
But fear not! There are ways you can still earn money from the comfort of your own home.
Time to change those habits
There are a lot of people who cannot work at the moment, so what are they going to do when they’re at home? Go online of course!
One of the best options to explore is e-commerce. Can you run a business where products can safely be distributed to your customers’ homes? If you can then this is the best way of ensuring that money is still coming into your business.
Safety is the number one concern for people at the moment, so if you can demonstrate the measures you are using to ensure you are not spreading coronavirus while providing a service at the same time, this could reap huge rewards for you. If you can’t, people are unlikely to trust you and you will lose business.
Communication is the key
This has always been a critical factor in the operation of any business, but now so more than ever. Keep yourself informed as to the latest government updates and let your customers know how conscientious you are about beating the pandemic.
People will understand you needing to change your business hours and operation to deal with the crisis. So don’t hide away from telling your customers that. Let them know what measures you need to take and your customers will respect and trust you for it. You can do this through your GMB, adding a note to your website or posting updates on social media.
You can update your Google Ads campaigns to reflect the changing time. Showing how prepared you are will earn you respect from your customers. Even if you are unable to trade at this moment in time, you can show what you are doing to get ready for when the restrictions on our daily lives are lifted so that you can give your customers what they need
