Be sure to read to the end, I have a special offer like none I have ever done before …
Thanks to all of you who signed up for the brainstorming sessions that I offered last week. I had a blast helping you all come up with new ideas and strategies for your businesses — and I’m happy to see that most of you have put those strategies to work right away.
One brainstorming session I did, was with a woman who had to close her store last week. She did not choose to close her shop, but her store and all of the stores around her were told they had to close due to COVID-19.
Four weeks ago, my neighborhood organic market where I shop closed down. They made an announcement that due to COVID-19, they were moving everything online.
The only problem was, they didn’t yet have an online store, so we’d all have to wait two weeks for the store to be ready.
That was a yikes for me because I am a minimalist and did not stockpile food and toiletries as most people did! When that two weeks turned into three weeks the pressure was on for the store and me. 😥
Why am I telling you this?
Because I don’t want you to get caught unprepared again. Now is the time to move your business online!
As you may know, I am always trying to come up with ways to help small businesses market and promote their products and services online. This time, I’ve gotten together with some other website designers who want to offer 50% off of 5-Page WordPress websites to small businesses and nonprofits. The turnaround time is between 2 and 4 weeks depending on your sites content (text, images, videos, etc.). Click here to take advantage of this offer now.
When you click on the link to pay, you will be prompted to schedule a WordPress consultation with me. During this session, I will help you get your domain name, hosting, theme, SSL certificate, and prepare the content that will go on your website. If you already have a domain name or anything else in the list, we can still build your site for you.
This is no time to relax.
The organic market received 400 orders on the first day their online store opened, and they are spinning out of control.
I ordered my groceries four days ago, and they just refunded my money for most of the items because distributors were out of most of the items the market put on their website. What a disaster!
They were not prepared, but I can almost guarantee you they will be prepared in the event of another emergency, and you should get prepared now as well.
I feel bad for them, but I’m sure they were among the many who have resisted technology. (Just as I resisted hoarding groceries.) They are now paying a huge price.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Technology is here to stay people! And, it saved a lot of lives during this pandemic.
If the thought of this doesn’t scare you, it should. Build your online business and build it now!
This Nationwide tragedy is forcing everyone to rethink how they were doing business, and how they need to change it for the future.
I’ve been fortunate as I was able to move my business completely online immediately, but others like my neighborhood market are now scrambling around trying to figure out how to give their customers what they are demanding and how to move all transactions online.
The web designers I am partnering with have graciously agreed to help me help you. They are freeing up some of their time to help you as well. Do not wait. You will need to move quickly as this offer will not last forever.
(*Notes: There are no monthly fees for the website. Once it is built, it is yours. Domain name, hosting, theme, and SSL must be purchased separately. Shopify sites are also available, but the price will vary depending on the number of products you have.)
Some companies that I mention are my marketing and training partners. I am an affiliate of others. Ads above may lead to affiliate pages for which I may be paid a commission if you use them. I only recommend products and/or services from companies I trust, tools I’ve used, or services/products that are highly recommended — and I feel may be of value to you and beneficial to your marketing efforts.
