In 5 simple steps, your business can survive the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, and continue to prosper. Be armed with the facts and ready to do business in new ways. CheapTVSpots.com offers suggestions to stay healthy and safe in your business.
Businesses still need income to stay in operation, even during this national emergency.
LOS ANGELES, CA — It’s been said that the Trump administration’s first response to the impending pandemic was to install a hamburger grill in the White House bunker. Of course, that may or may not be true, but it’s absolutely true that the American economy depends on small and medium-sized enterprises, which do most of their business face-to-face.
The usual, in-person transaction of business has taken a hit these last few weeks, as the threat of a new, highly communicable disease percolates throughout society and threatens businesses everywhere.
Is there a vaccine? In the short term, not for COVID-19 (nor for the intransigence of the current administration and its misplaced priorities), but here’s a shot in the arm for your business. Get prepared and stay healthy with these simple suggestions:
First: Doctors advise getting a regular “quadrivalent” flu shot. This will reduce the burden on emergency rooms and medical personnel from cases of seasonal flu, and allows more immediate care for the critically ill.
Second: Wash hands frequently and refrain from touching your face. Washing with soap and hot water for at least 20 seconds is said to work best.
Third: Limit contact with others in public places. Keep a distance of at least six feet, wherever possible. Elbow-bump a greeting if you absolutely have to. Hold meetings via phone or teleconference, instead of in person.
Fourth: Inform employees that they are to stay home from work if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms. Consider temporarily flexing company rules on sick days to encourage employees to stay home from work while ill.
Fifth: Regularly wipe environmental surfaces with disinfectant or alcohol. Wipe areas commonly touched, such as door handles, keyboards, and countertops. Encourage all employees to do the same.
Now that you have the foundation for living during a pandemic – let’s get back to business.
“Businesses still need income to stay in operation, even during this national emergency,” says CheapTVSpots.comspokesperson, James Whelk.
But what can you do? Come to terms with our new reality. Then take action.
- Examine how you can incorporate workarounds to the person-to-person interaction that has kept your business in the black. Consider taking orders over the phone or via a web-based form. Is there a way to deliver products?
Think of ways to make the experience fun for the customer and employees, in spite of the seriousness of this shared situation.
And of course, advertise these new services – TV and online video can be a great way to get the word out to your customers, and it can be very affordable.
