The Pivot to Digital
If you haven’t already pivoted your business into the digital work, then this is a must!
Covid-19 has overwhelmingly fast-tracked the rise of the digital world. Why? Because it doesn’t matter if you are in lock-down at home, restricted by state borders (as we often are here in Australia), or banned from international travel – the rise of local business opportunities has been massive!
To capitalise on digital, businesses need to ensure that when customers are browsing their devices (likely from home) and being told not to venture too far, that your local business is the one they see and the one that converts users into leads and customers.
How to Take Your Business Online
If you’re not sure how to get started with your digital pivot, then we have a simple 3 step solution:
1. Get a Mobile Responsive Website
f you don’t have a website, then you have no online presence. Without a website, there will be nowhere to drive your online traffic and customers. First things first, get yourself a website! The site should be mobile responsive, easy to use and representative of your brand. There are a stack of free website builders out there, however, as long term thinkers, we would strongly recommend that all businesses invest in a professionally designed website.
