What started as a busy season filled with sporting events, trade shows, school activities, and group outings has quickly turned into empty calendars full of cancellations. Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is impacting day-to-day life for many. While this presents operational challenges and slowing sales, the slower pace is an opportunity to redirect your focus to the foundational elements of your business.
Here are a few simple things to do to keep yourself on track and prepare for a successful rest of the year.
With technology like FaceTime, Zoom, Google Hangouts, and Skype, you can connect with others from almost anywhere. Leveraging communication tools like these allow you to hold virtual face-to-face meetings with coworkers, partners, customers, and others in your network. Schedule time to host a virtual meeting to review past projects, brainstorm new ideas, or even check-in as a friend.
If virtual meetings aren’t your thing, send thank you emails or bring back the lost art of handwritten cards.
A slower pace allows a little extra time and space to research products, technology, or new ideas for your business that can be implemented once things pick up again.
Explore and research product trends to plan ahead and stay on top of the market.
Learn a new skill related to the projects you’re currently working on, or research the industries of your customers to better understand their needs.
