The virus COVID-19 or more commonly known as Coronavirus is not only causing problems on the social level, but it is also managing to affect the economic and political sectors. The governments of the world are clearly worried because of the amount infected worldwide. With no vaccine yet to be approved, the world, unfortunately, seems to be getting sicker and, with it, the economy.
The W.H.O. (World Health Organization) declared the virus as a pandemic, which brought negative monetary consequences. Large businesses have collapsed due to financial panic in the market. The effect this pandemic has on small business is similar to the impact on the body. Companies lay off workers, which slowly brings their production to a halt. While countries are taking sanitary measures by asking citizens not to go out on the streets, avoid crowds, and propose to work from home, the effects are already being felt.
But it should not all be doom and gloom! Yes. Brick and mortar only stores will undoubtedly suffer as fewer and fewer people will be able to leave their homes. However, another opportunity is opening up with more and more people choosing to buy online!
If you, as a business, do not yet have an online presence, we recommend that you start taking action quickly and start implementing this business model in your company. You can start by creating a social media account and landing page or single-page that allows your customers to view your products or services. This combination can slow down the speed at which your sales decline, helping you get through this pandemic. But the benefits won’t stop there. Once the world begins to recover, your online presence will help your business catapult above the rest! So take action today!
