Like the majority of South Africans, you’re reading this from your home during an unprecedented 21-day lockdown. Maybe you’re feeling a bit defeated – and yet you’ve got the power to change that in your hands RIGHT NOW.
Many people have no job to go to; their business has shut down due to the stringent regulations put in place. Perhaps your office set up a temporary solution from home? The fact is businesses that already had work from home policies in place, or who are predominantly web-based are feeling the pinch of the pandemic far less than brick and water businesses. Online trade is more resilient to global disasters.
In South Africa, we can look at the food delivery service OneCart. Though they’ve been in operation long before the lockdown, they have seen immense growth since the outbreak started. Recently, they announced that they are increasing operations and have hired an additional 100 staff. That’s job creation in a time of recession!
Zoom, the video conferencing platform that has revolutionised education, work and communication. Millions are conducting online classes and having meetings in their pyjamas right now.
In the future, more people will work from home, and more businesses will be online. This will result in a reduced carbon footprint, fewer overheads from renting office spaces, and happier employees who are able to improve their quality of life.
Though most people have been driven to accept online business through this global disaster, it is so vital to find silver linings and ways to conquer and continue. At websitedesign.co.za we believe that this might just be the impetus needed to finally move your business online.
If you are reading this you must be connected to the internet in some way or another, and that means you’ve got the power to work from home or even start an online business! Talk to us about web design to enhance your online presence. Because even during this lockdown, we are still operational, online and ready to assist you with your online business concept.
