The pandemic has had a lasting, negative effect on everyone, but especially on small businesses that are just trying to stay afloat. How can your business survive the pandemic and grow from it as well?
1. Embrace a future-oriented perspective. The first step of surviving and growing during this time is not giving up. It may not seem like it right now, but things will eventually get better.
2. Focus on the things you have control of. In a world that feels very unpredictable right now, it is important to focus on what you can do instead of worrying about the things you can’t influence.
3. Increase your social media presence. Now more than ever, your customers are relying on social media. This is the time to let them know that you still care and want to serve them.
4. Capitalize on your strengths. This may mean that, if you have a bestselling item, you do whatever it takes to continue to advertise and have that item available.
5. Know your purpose. In this time of uncertainty, it is hugely important to remember why you started your business in the first place, not losing sight of that purpose.
