2020 has been a challenging year. The coronavirus has ravaged the global economy and small businesses have not been spared. What can you do as a small business owner to navigate these challenging times?

Here are some practical tips for detailers and small business owners during the coronavirus pandemic.

1. Prepare a Business Continuity Plan

2. Activate e-Wallets & Other Contactless Payment Methods

Coins and banknotes carry huge amounts of harmful bacteria. Now is the perfect time to offer contactless payment options such as e-wallets & online transfers that reduce the need for physical touch. Go cashless & contactless and make it a preference with your customers!

3. Promote Personal Hygiene

Staff & customers will need to have access to items that promote hygiene such as soap and water, or hand sanitizers. Place hand sanitizers at commonly used areas. This not only helps lower the risk of infection but also provides peace of mind to your staff and customers.

4. Frequent Disinfection of Areas and Surfaces

Surface hygiene is important to avoid contamination. Hourly wipe downs are a must on frequently used areas such as doorknobs, tabletops, countertops, and toilets. Make sure to use a surface sanitizer that contains the required concentration of alcohol.

Now is the perfect time to create brand awareness through social media channels. As a local business owner, you are at the heart of your community and you need to use your voice to engage with your customers and build your brand.  Some suggestions for Social Media posts can be:

  • pictures and videos or your recent work, letting your followers/potential customers know that business is still ongoing
  • COVID-19 dos and don’ts
  • inspirational tips and quotes
