COVID 19: the crippler of businesses
We have found ourselves in probably one of the toughest times in our lifetime and it is far from over. It is challenging not just for businesses but in every element of our lives.
These trying times are unprecedented and extremely challenging. All industries are bring affected with travel being one of the hardest hit (in my opinion) but for businesses to survive when the dust settles, how are we going to come out stronger?
With declining revenues, almost all businesses are running out of disposable capital. The responsibilities towards their staff, payment of their salaries, running cost payments and repayment of bank loans are still there and it is now when support is needed more than ever.
We are in a global crisis which has never been seen before, there is no business worth jeopardizing your health or the health of your staff. No meeting is work exposing yourself/staff too when there is still no cure.
Companies are now more than ever using technology to communicate with staff and customers and when this virus is under control, we will have a new reality. The old faithful systems won’t be as effective and the possibility is high that you and your business are going to have to look for new opportunities.
In these weird and wonderful times, it is vital that you are there for your staff and customers to be able to still serve them efficiently and effectively by making your products and services available to them as all times.
We are in a time of crisis, well I believe we are in one, and it is a direct threat to our lives as a whole, the way we live day-to-day, how we conduct business.
Since this pandemic is not in our hands, businesses should be using this time to add value to their clients and also other ways to generate an income.
Let me ask you a question:
Have you ever wondered, if your business was online, had a website that was up to date, had a payment gateway and provided all the after-sales services, you could have been directing your customers to your website while working from home?
If your business had a website that had this functionality, your staff could have worked from home and it would have been business as normal, well almost.
If you are looking into how you can move your business forward in these difficult times and make sure nothing like this can affect how you do business in the future, get your business online.
