What Small Businesses Should Do Today to Survive the Coronavirus

Get all the money available you can get to invest in your future

The coronavirus pandemic has thrust the world into a very challenging and unprecedented economic period. Most businesses, especially small businesses have been negatively impacted and millions are in peril. Every small business owner is justified in their concern for the next few months.

Nonetheless, it is important to remember that we are dealing with a global pandemic like no living person has ever experienced, which has caused an economic crisis, the abruptness of which no living person has ever seen.

Indeed, these are unprecedented circumstances, and small businesses should allow the government to blend their significant financial resources with our organic financial strength to help businesses deal with this emergency period.

Specifically, this includes cash infusion for essentially every small business, from employers to independent contractors to the gig economy folks, who will receive the emergency funds being allocated.

Here is an update on what is available and what you should do right now, today.

Do this first

Go to Canada.ca or SBA.gov and look for the click associated with the Coronavirus Business Assistance Plan. See if you are admissible and sign up for the emergency cash that may be available to you.

Do this next

Contact your banker and begin the process.

Apparently, the bank will be paid interest and some fees, ultimately covered by the government, not you. Your bankers will most likely tell you to go to their website and complete the enrollment form and to provide specific required documentation to them. You will then be asked to sign a loan document.

Be thorough with the forms and then be patient, because unprecedented actions beget bumpy execution. Your bank is being deluged with requests for these funds.

One last word

For decades I have encouraged small business owners to do business with a community bank. In good times and bad times, community banks are always a small business’s best friend.

Believe in yourself: Surviving is winning!

This, too, will pass.

You Are a Customer or a Business! Don’t Let the Coronavirus Kill You: Go Online Now!

With prices ranging from $900.00 to $3600.00 you can definitely afford to go online and reshape the way you do business.

“E-Commerce, Working Remotely from Home and Shopping Online are trends that are here to stay and last”

Get on board now!

These challenging times brought about by the Covid-19 coronavirus are affecting the very foundation of the workforce and changing the landscape of work and the way we do business as we know it.

As many businesses shift the majority of their efforts online, individuals and companies alike are coming up with resourceful solutions to meet emerging market needs. E-commerce trends are reshaping online shopping and the way we do business.

Whether you are taking your business online for the first time or looking to reinforce your existing online presence, I can help you and your employees manage and grow your business, even from within your and their home.

E-Commerce and Shopping Online are here to stay

Like it or not, if you are not online, you are losing money now and will be losing money in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.

Even the more resilient advocating against and resisting E-commerce are now shopping online or doing business online.

For the consumer, it is convenient and for the business owners, they are paid in full immediately as the product or service is ordered thus improving their cash flow.

Because so many people that use to walk in your store now realized how convenient it is to order online, as a business owner, do not expect them to walk back in your store after the pandemic. For most of these customers, they will keep on buying online and, if you are not doing business on the web, they will definitely not be buying from you or retaining your services.

Again, e-commerce and shopping online is here to stay and if you are not taking advantage of the situation, you are not only losing money now, you will still be losing money in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.

“You want your business to survive and thrive! You have to go online now.”

 

How much will that cost?

A lot less than the money you are losing now and will be losing in the aftermath of the coronavirus if you are not investing in your future now!

Ask yourself:

Compare to the price I would have to pay to go online, what would be the cost of not doing it?”

 

You do not have to spend tons of money to do it. This could be done and, with prices ranging from $900.00 to $3600.00, I can do it for you at a fraction of the cost that you would normally expect to pay.

Yes indeed, for you, I can take your business to the next level, take your business online; manage your online business and, by creating and sharing your online content, empower your online community.

Everything at a very reasonable and competitive price.
