Right now, small business owners around the world are asking themselves: Is it OK to sell during a global crisis?
Won’t it come off sleazy, heartless or tacky?
😭After all, our local bakery Ovenly just laid off all 72 of its employees.
😭An old friend who just realized his lifelong dream of opening a restaurant had to shut the doors, and he doesn’t know if he will ever reopen.
🤯And there are thousands more. The crush of the quarantine on business owners, workers, and the entire economy is unfathomable.
💪🏼Which is why we must keep our doors open.
If we shut our doors, too, we compound the problem.
If you market and sell a service or online product that you can deliver virtually, you need to keep marketing and selling. There is no reason not to, and at this moment, we are in a unique position to keep the money flowing.🙌🏼
Has this global situation created a bunch of new challenges and concerns for a lot of people? Absolutely.
But do people still have all the problems they had before this happened? Yes.
And, in fact, those problems might be even worse now.
How are you showing up for your clients, now more than ever, and offering them a way to pay you for those service? How are YOU supporting other small businesses right night by hiring them? - 15 minutes ago
