  • Utilize online job boards to find freelancers, including search engine marketing (SEM services) experts to help market your business.
  • Learn about some video interview tips to conduct safe interviews while social-distancing.
  • Find online resources and guides to help onboard and train new employees safely.

Updates for Small Business Spaces

If you’re looking for constructive ways to pass the time while COVID restrictions are in place, consider completing updates to give your business a fresh look.

  • Consider a move to a smaller, larger, or more profitable location.
  • Upgrade your brick-and-mortar location by adding affordable carpet.

There has never been a year quite like 2020 in terms of operating a small business, and COVID-19 has likely changed the way we will be doing business in the months and years ahead.
