It is an unprecedented time for modern-day businesses. Covid-19 has shaken the world to its core and has required adaptation by businesses to stay afloat. Not only are businesses affected, but authors as well. Gone are the days of in-person book signings, lest you tempt fate. So, how do we stay afloat? The short answer is to embrace the internet and use every available resource it provides. In this article, we talk about how a small business like us has been facilitating business and personal growth for businesses and individuals alike. If you are a business owner, author, struggling freelancer, or job seeker then this article is for you.

Businesses, Authors, and Job Seekers

The not so secret key to great business growth is marketing. Bottom line upfront, you will need a website with the ability to blog and sell, email, and promotional content creation tools; yes we have it all. To establish your brand, you are going to need a website; plain and simple. Whether you are a start-up business, established business, or book author, you need a website to direct clients to. This has become especially true for authors, as book signings are a great marketing tool but Covid has limited this function. Some businesses can now take their business online and sell products from a good safe distance. As an added benefit, having a website allows users to blog about their products. Blogging is important because it’s the connection between the business/author and clients. Blog about product updates, upcoming events, or show your customer appreciation. Job seekers can use our cheaper WordPress plan to create a portfolio, adding to your overall professionalism.
