Corona Virus Closing Small Businesses - Now What?

I debated on whether to post this or not but I know from my clients and others who are seeking advice from me it’s an uncertain time. But here’s my advice.

💪 “You do what you can for as long as you can, when you finally can’t, you do the next best thing. You back up but you don’t give up” Saw this on @beckscoach @refusetofailofficial Instagram and I knew I needed to post.

🌟 Let's not waste this time we have, let’s reflect, develop and build.


👋 Use your current followers to do some audience research. Look at their interests (what are they posting about in feed and stories) who are they following and why?

👍🏻 Make the connections. They may be restricted in your services at the moment but once it’s over they will be looking for you. STAY ACTIVE. MAKE CONNECTIONS

💻 What have you learned from this epidemic? Is there a way you can do your service differently? Can you produce and sell more digitally? This is the best time to start brainstorming more product/services ideas and think about how to target your audience.

✏️Create content. Canva is a lifesaver for a time as well as being creative with templates. Facebook Creators Studio (You can schedule for FREE To Instagram and Facebook). Keep your Instagram active. Remind your audience your services, skills and products! They’re isolated too, they need content to keep them positive!

❤️Stay positive, easier said than done but there are so many help groups on Facebook and this situation isn’t going to go away fast. Acceptance and move to the next step of how you will get through this. Don’t forget your followers they need you as much as you need them.

So you do need Instagram and also look onto other platforms (Tik Tok, Youtube, Instagram) now is the best time to find your audience there too.
