How is the COVID-19 lockdown affecting you at the moment? Throughout the world, hundreds of millions of people are now forced to work, shop and interact online as social distancing and lockdown rules limit our movements. As restrictive and unpleasant as this may be, it also provides some exciting opportunities to gain business momentum in the digital space. The use of social media, shopping websites, streaming services, tutorials, webinars and online meeting apps has increased dramatically and will play a more significant role in our lives than ever before – even in the post-COVID world. Here are 3 things that will help you take advantage of this trend right now, and future-proof your business at the same time:


People are looking for meaningful and valuable online content that can help them in all aspects of their lives, from how to build a budgeting spreadsheet to healthy cooking recipes and new activities to keep the kids entertained. What opportunities do you have to create helpful content in your own business that you can make available to others?

Connection with others

Most people are social creatures and looking for ways of interacting with friends and family online. This has resulted in tremendous growth for certain apps and websites that bring people together around different topics and interests, from music concerts and online parties to travel experiences and interactive cooking lessons. Can any of your own products and services be modified to include a social component?

Change in sales patterns

Online shopping has never been more relevant than right now, and many of us will most likely try to reduce our visits to brick-and-mortar retail outlets in the future. Consumers who have never considered online shopping are either being forced to do so during the lockdown or finding home delivery to be an exciting new time-saving benefit. Many of these consumers will not go back to retail outlets, pharmacies and take-away joints after the lockdown. Are you able to make some of your own services and products available for purchase online? The lockdown restrictions are creating opportunities for the entrepreneurial minds that will not only help them survive right now but take them to higher levels of success than ever before after the pandemic has passed. If you would like to be among these high performers, then you need to develop a powerful digital marketing strategy right now!
