With the whole of the UK in lockdown because of Coronavirus, these are unprecedented times for business. We have been working with businesses to help get through this time.

Some are transforming their sites to deliver goods or services online. For others, it as an opportunity to plan to grow and build on their position when we return to more normal times. Others are wanting to get jobs done that they have been putting off as they’ve been busy actually running their business.

Perhaps some of these ideas and changes can help you too.

Making the Most of the Situation

With the majority of people having to stay at home, some working, some not. If you are, and own a business or play some part, It’s the ideal time to start promoting your business online. People will be spending lots of time browsing the internet, wanting to get jobs done that they have been putting off till now.

For example, we’ve helped a dance school in Nottingham move their classes online. This not only gives the dance students an activity but helps the dance school keep in business and support their teachers and staff. We’ve integrated video classes and archives and helping turn this into a smooth experience for teacher and students.

We have also helped a Japanese micro-bakery turn their Website into a delivery system. They used to rely on using Food Markets and now offer delivery to specific postcodes on specified days. They don’t think they will do as many weekend markets now; their order book is full. Selling online was always an ambition, but recent events forced them to actually get it done.

A shop fitter in Leicester has a site built by Yell 10 years ago. Unfortunately, it looked like it too and didn’t work on mobiles. We are now rebuilding it from scratch with new pages and new images.

If you have an old, slow website that doesn’t work well on mobile phones or tablets, the customer could think ‘Are they in business anymore?’ or ‘If they don’t even put the effort in a website, they can’t be great’. We can offer you a fantastic website that your potential customers will visit and be impressed with, working on all devices, fast speed, informative and easy to use.

Having a fantastic looking website, that either sells products or showcases your services will help in a great way at this time. Helping you receive an enquiry or people booking in for when you are back in action.

Plan for the Future

Even now, lots of businesses still don’t own their own domain or Website, relying on referrals or directory listings, such as Yell.com. Perhaps now is the time to get online and drive sales through the Website – whether that is for a service or selling a product. With most physical stores closed, and people unable to visit businesses (or you visit homes to quote/complete sales) now highlights the importance a website can make.

Getting a website that looks professional and easy to use will attract the public even more. Websites can be the deciding factor for most. If you have an old, slow website that doesn’t work well on mobile phones or tablets, the customer could think ‘Are they in business anymore?’ or ‘If they don’t even put the effort in a website, they can’t be great’. We can offer you an amazing website that your potential customers will visit and be impressed with, working on all devices, fast speed, informative and easy to use.

Advertising on Social Media, Email Marketing or elsewhere will also help during these times. Directing people to your site is the main aim. This is a massive benefit as people will be at home – they will be more likely to click that link to send them to your site.
