In uncertain times like these, it is important to be aware of how the Coronavirus known as COVID-19 is impacting communities everywhere. No matter your social class, age, or geographical whereabouts, when it comes to a pandemic like COVID-19, we are all responsible for remaining calm and using common sense.
How the Business World is Taking Measures Against COVID-19
Over the past few days and hours, we have seen organizations taking precautions to provide a safe work and social environment for all employees and customers. Many big tech firms are asking their employees to work remotely from home. Major social events like Coachella and Stagecoach festival have been postponed until a date later in the year and local school districts are closing for the time being.
Industries Still Thriving During Times of COVID-19
Some industries are thriving which others are getting hit harder than ever. We were interested to know in comparison, how does the tech world rank?
The Tech Industry
Software as a service (SAAS), artificial intelligence, and Internet and web service providers like 101domain, are well-equip to continue operations from the comfort and safety of our homes. As mentioned previously, many tech companies have already started to make the shift to working remotely as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19.
Social media influencers and bloggers often get a lot of flak for their career choice. However, these sole entrepreneurs have found a way to generate revenue from their personal brand. When all you need is an Internet connection and yourself to produce content, influencers and bloggers have a strategic advantage over everyone else. With more and more people looking for a distraction from the thoughts surrounding COVID-19, influencers, bloggers, podcasters, and social media are a welcome reprieve.
People are shopping online to prepare for COVID-19. Cleaning supply sales are booming. We never thought we would see a day when Amazon ran out of stock from all sellers (let alone the product be hand sanitizer), but it just goes to show that people are avoiding shopping in-person if they have the option. Any business with an E-commerce storefront would benefit from encouraging its customers to practice “social distancing” by shopping online.
In times like these, it’s apparent the business world is moving online. From the way customers shop to the opportunities for employees to work remotely, it is important for companies to diversify to ensure they can survive. 101domain is here to take some of the COVID-19 stress away and to ensure you can continue operating online well into the future.
