Business growth during COVID-19 pandemic? … Yes, that’s possible
Small businesses are the lifeline of communities. That’s why it is normal that owners & employees are currently feeling worried and panicked in today’s economic downfall. Despite the challenges, we can all find glimmers of hope and persistence daily!
The unfamiliarity of what the future holds is the source of the roller-coaster of emotions. And, the best best way to ultimately overcome this recession is to ramp up on staying informed and mitigating risk.
One factor has remained the same — businesses and customers want speed & efficiency. And in today’s stay-at-home culture, experienced virtual assistants who are well practiced in providing an effective remote operation is the key to business growth.
For businesses to stay resilient against the Coronavirus crisis, it’s back to the basics.
Now more than ever, it’s time for owners and entrepreneurs to go back to the basic fundamentals of business. Reflect on the essence of what business means. In our understanding, it’s about providing a valued product and understanding its demand.
Yes, it’s possible to grow business during COVID-19
- As a quick exercise — What value does an ice cream parlor business usually provide? (“Pre-Corona”)
Answer: A/C, Service, Social Atmosphere, Memories, Nostalgia, Speed
2. Take that answer and consider this next question — During the COVID-19 crisis, how can the business recreate those types of value in a version that buyers need today? (“Post-Corona”)
Think outside the literal box (storefront). If their storefront is no longer providing the same value of a great social atmosphere to create memories, how do you provide that when people are bored and at home?
Answer: Trendy ice-cream party kits (equipped with parlor-themed decorations & hats), delivered by your smiling worker in parlor attire.

An Optimistic Future for 2020: A Thriving Business Outlook
Charles and Olivia share, “If the small business owner is impacted, everyone is impacted. The TOP 2 things that CANNOT be cut are the people who we are committed to, which are our employees and virtual assistants.”
Take our clients’ words for it. “Virtual Assistants are key. Without VAs, it limits us and we have more responsibilities in-house. A VA is significantly more affordable to the business pattern. We get more value for the price. This is essential and instrumental for our growth, not only now but long-term 3–5 years out, we will continue to grow our number of VAs.”
