DISCLAIMER: The Coronavirus pandemic situation is constantly changing. The audio from this Facebook Live was recorded on March 10, 2020, and many things have changed since then. Some small businesses have been ordered to close and many owners have voluntarily closed their businesses in order to protect their communities. The audio isn’t the quality we normally provide on the Savvy Shopkeeper Retail Podcast but the content is worth sharing with listeners because it does provide helpful information for retailers.
In this episode, I’ll focus on what we can do as retail business owners, either to help our businesses or help EACH OTHER. I’ll talk about –
- Importance of being aware
- Using downtime wisely
Links to articles or resources mentioned in Episode #22:
- Katie of Voiced by Katie
- Master Shopkeepers
- Diversifying Income Streams blog post
- Going live on social media
- Surviving slow season blog post
- Zoom (This is my referral link)
- Free resources in the Shopkeeper’s Academy for Retailers during the Coronavirus Pandemic
Until the next episode, be savvy and boss up!
