This pandemic is having an immediate and long-term impact on small businesses. From confinement to restrictions to social distancing, small business owners have had to adapt and find solutions to keep their business running.
Digital channels are becoming the new norm. For example, local farmers have embraced digital technologies as a way to directly sell their products.
A positive trend of this new standard is support for small local businesses. People specifically look for locally owned, independently owned businesses. Many social media campaigns are dedicated to shopping locally and #supportlocalbusiness or #shoplocal are trending.
At Appbuff, we are here to support you and help you keep your business open by offering solutions tailored to your needs.
