This pandemic has created havoc, and the worst is yet to come as some people say. Folks who run business of literally any sorts are in dire straits. With businesses almost at a stand still, companies are liable towards paying rents and employee salaries, and thereby it is a domino effect across industries.
Without getting business how do you pay it forward or continuing meeting all the financial needs? Your business is not making any money, so where do you shell out the rent? The worst is the uncertainty that goes with this situation – how long will this last? Will everything be OK in 2 months? Will the businesses be running towards normalcy soon? These are indeed unusual and tough times.
It is easy to get trapped in the negative spiral of problems. However, another way to look at this is from being solutions-oriented. If people can’t come to your business personally, maybe, you need to plan to start thinking about a full online operation. If you are losing clients in your web development or consulting business (because there is nothing to develop right now), maybe, you could offer new services that companies might require right now! For example, companies can run audits of their websites for usability, security or SEO, and in turn better their online presence.
As the uncertainty of getting back to normalcy is very less, online is the today and tomorrow of business. Anything that can help businesses get to a better point for when this is over is an opportunity right now!
Either we can mull over problems or sit up and take to the battlefield.
