The Effects of the Coronavirus on Business

There are now over 2,000 cases of Coronavirus in the United States. If it continues to spread most people won’t want to leave their homes. Some places are already feeling the impact of the pandemic around the country. This is causing less and less business to be conducted in person. What will be the effects of the Coronavirus on business and how can you make the most of this decline of in-person business transactions.

The pandemic will affect different businesses in different ways. For example, food services have seen between a 40 to 70 percent decrease in business. Food industries seem to be feeling the effects the most while clothing brands, sporting goods, and boutiques are feeling it the least.

COVID-19 or as it’s more commonly referred to, Coronavirus is currently affecting businesses all over the country even if they don’t have any confirmed cases. This is due to the scare tactics that come with the pandemic. While there isn’t a lot to worry about, it is important to think outside of the box to help your business survive through these times.

Effects of the Coronavirus on Restaurants

A great way to achieve this is by accepting orders online. Another option is making sure your online site is up to date with pictures of your food. It helps with visualization which will improve customer satisfaction when they’re ordering delivery. Having a website that is up to date is crucial for times like these. It will help take business online which can, in turn, help you get through the pandemic.

It’s not too late. This is only day two of the US being in a state of emergency. It’s still possible to adjust and not lose a lot of business due to the pandemic. If you’d like a to know what options you have then let’s schedule a free consultation. Let’s see what best fits your restaurant to help you continue bringing in money for your business while the Coronavirus is going on.

Effects of the Coronavirus on Retailers

For example, Amazon has shut its doors. It’s no longer possible to get prime shipping through Amazon. Some Amazon sellers still offer prime; however, it’s on a select few products.

A great way to take advantage of this is to create an online shop and give people the option of “same-day delivery” for local houses. Hire drivers temporarily to run supplies to customers. Make sure these drivers are wearing face masks and gloves to further ease customers. The effects of the Coronavirus on business is serious. Make sure you’re taking all the needed steps to ensure your customers are happy and risk-free.

If you didn’t want to do delivery, another option would be offering products online through an eCommerce platform. We can build or update your eCommerce platform to help you weather the storm. Let’s set up a free consultation today to see what the best move for your business is. Helms Media is working around the clock to help your business stay afloat and make money during this pandemic.

Effects of the Coronavirus on Service Businesses

The best way to work around these issues would be to work from home on remote work. You could also resort to making sales online or on the phone if you’re in marketing instead of meeting in person. Another way to have meetings could be through Zoom. It’s an online meeting space that’s free to use. Discord also recently removed their limitations to screen sharing and the number of people you can have in calls to help fight COVID-19.

Think Outside the Box
