Over the weekend, Australia “has been interrupted by this important message” from the local, state and national governments. The trending words are ‘social-distancing’ and ‘isolation’. We’re trampling over the top of each other for hand sanitisers and toilet paper. And it looks like you can still go to the hairdresser but not to church… And the biggest question this weekend was “is Dan Murphy’s still going to be open?” Planet Earth, you’re a special one!
Are you in a business that has been demanded to cull traffic or close your doors?
Are you trying to work out how you can maximise your opportunity to still do business while you’re waiting for this pandemic to blow over?
This unexpected disruption has really effed up your week. Let alone potentially the next few months. And now your brain is ticking and starts to work in ‘survival mode’…
3 easy steps to get you started are:
1. Edit your times and contact information on Google My Business.
2. Make sure your contact form on your website is working.
3. Smash your social media presence!
And the best advice I can offer each and every one of us is to stick together and act locally through these times. The Australian economy is getting belted pretty hard and there’s a lot we can do to help small local businesses. Let’s help each other overcome this situation and look forward to the day that we’re confident again with the phrase “business as usual”.
