Corona Virus Lock-down Update

We are now just over a week into isolation in the UK and I finally have a moment to post on here between juggling client work, home-schooling and settling the family into our new way of life.

No one could ever have imagined the impact this virus would have and we find ourselves in a totally unplanned situation. Some businesses have been hugely affected with a shutdown and others are thriving, with a third group trying to find a new outlet for their services or products.

👩🏻‍💻We have all had to embrace technology like never before. People are getting their grandparents iPads and setting them up on Zoom over the phone – unheard of a month ago – they wouldn’t have even really tried it!

I want to be able to help my clients get through this period but also I want to add value to other businesses who I have come to know through social or helped in workshops.

If you need help setting yourselves up to deliver your services online or are going to use the time to get yourself up and running on a new social channel, then let me know how I can help.

Whilst I can and have the time, I am offering you some free advice so get in touch with me on email and we can set up a call. I also offer free social media tips and you can sign up here.

✨If you sell a product you can still dispatch or sell a service that you can do online, then Facebook Ads is a perfect way of reaching your ideal customer.

There are fewer people advertising currently and CPMs are lower with a good return on investment being seen in both e-comm and lead gen. I can either offer one-to-one sessions to help get you set up or I can manage your ads for you. It may be the difference between your business existing during this crisis or really thriving.

😓Sadly, I can’t hold my workshops in the Hive in Cranbrook at the moment and I am missing running them. But I am looking for interest in online workshops.

I don’t feel comfortable telling you that now is the perfect time to upskill as everyone has different circumstances, but I am looking at moving my workshops online as a natural progression for my business. I have done all of my social media retraining and Facebook Ads learnings online and it can be a great and supportive way to learn with the right course.

I would love to hear from you about online workshops and whether you would prefer ‘learn at your own pace’ or ‘online, live’ teaching if you were to embark on a course.

👯‍♀️Being at home with the kids has turned me into a TikTok addict – I am currently using it for my business and learning how it all works. It has 500m active monthly users and 41% of users are 16-24. But I am seeing tonnes of mums, dads and over 30’s on there – it really is fun.

If you are interested in learning more about how a business can use this platform, then shout (just don’t judge the dancing!!)

As we know ‘business as usual’ doesn’t really exist in these exceptional circumstances but rest assured, I am here, at home, ready to help if you need it.

Stay safe,

Susie
