It’s true that the world is at a standstill, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. However, this isn’t to say that your small business needs to do the same. You can, in fact, keep it thriving — even growing — by adopting a positive mindset, taking advantage of technology, and continuing to operate remotely. Here are some resources to keep you on that path of growth.
In the time of social distancing, leveraging technology for remote work is a must.
- Use online job boards to hire talent for all your business needs.
- Be creative in keeping your business alive through COVID-19.
- Find ways to collaborate with your team remotely.
- Download the best connectivity tools with quarantine-friendly freebies for online meetings and video conferencing.
- Stay productive while working from home.
Thinking onward and forward is essential in keeping your business a thriving one.
- Hit the ground running by updating your business plan.
- Ramp up marketing to jumpstart growth.
- Apply for grants that can help support your business during COVID-19.
- Focus on increasing workplace productivity.
- Elevate your store or office by installing new carpeting and other improvements.
In time, this lockdown, too, shall pass. When that happens, you’ll want your operations to be well-equipped to handle the surge of business, which you will be when you leverage remote work capabilities and keep thinking and moving forward. The pandemic is all about survival of the fittest, after all — and yes, that includes small businesses.
