#OpenWeStand- Helping Small Business Owners Navigate Through Uncertain times
A few months ago I shared with you an online form called #OpenWeStand, – a Community platform for small business owners in a time of need as we navigate through these uncertain times.
As I mentioned in my original post, when this pandemic hit, it was really tough. Especially for someone who works for themselves. Clients pushed back or completely canceled campaigns because they are unsure of when this economy will turn around. I cut expenses wherever I could, took on more essential tasks of the business myself (SEO, social media scheduling, marketing and photography.) I turned my focus to topics that I believed would benefit you, my readers, the most: Ways to Manage Anxiety During the Pandemic, 45 Fun Activities to Do At Home & decorating ideas to make your home feel like an oasis.
A Shoulder to Lean On In Times of Need
The #OpenWeStand platform has helped me tremendously these past few months by helping me adapt to this new normal that we are living in. It offers me support when I need it most and it still is promoting small business owners in many ways. I learned new social media strategies, marketing ideas, & relief options available to small businesses. The support from other small business owners has been immensely helpful and let me know that I am not alone & that we will get through this.
The forum also offers a lot of great articles including examples, “The Key to Selling on Social Media and Connecting with Your Community. and “How to Help PPP Loan Forgiveness.”
I have made the forum part of my daily reading list to keep updated on news and assistance available. So I encourage any other small business owners out there to visit https://www.openwestand.org. See all of the different resources they can offer you.
