2020 sure has thrown a spanner in the works, especially when it comes to running a small business. Face-to-face opportunities to connect with customers, suppliers and participating in networking events may be on hold for now but there’s still ways to stay connected during these trying times.
From virtual meetings to inspiring social media content, we share some of the best ways to stay connected in business during COVID-19.
They are your bread and butter and one of the reasons you stay in business. Staying connected with your customers is vital and can still be achieved through the power of the internet.
Here are some ways you can keep connected:
“We have an online message board where people communicate freely about work-related matters and stuff outside of it. It is more of a (virtual) friendship, apart from professional engagement.“
Owner of DC Concrete, Dominic Calabro shares how social media helps their business stay connected with their customers.
“Despite being essential workers in construction, COVID has definitely impacted and inspired how we connect with our customers. During this period, we have taken the opportunity to build our online presence, work on social media and use digital to connect with both residential and civil clients. This shift will last long beyond the pandemic and is proving successful in both new contacts and existing client engagement. A tradie’s silver lining during a challenging time!“
It is fair to say that face-to-face conferences and networking events might be on hold for the interim, but there is still plenty of ways to connect online. While it may not be quite the same, it is still an opportunity to interact and network with others.
Here are some ways to keep the lines of communication open:
