For the first time you may be trying to assess your digital marketing. That means websites, advertising, social media, etc. Maybe the people who helped you with it before are not reachable. Or maybe it wasn’t a business focus before, but now it certainly is. To help you during this difficult time we’ve compiled a list of resources to help you get a handle on your digital assets and chart a strategy for moving forward.

There is a lot of uncertainty and anxiety right now, we have to be honest about that. I’m not going to tell somebody to “just stay positive” because I don’t know everything they might be going through and what their challenges are. But I do know that we all have to be proactive. We have to evaluate the situation we’re in, make a solid plan, and decisive action.

With the largest proportion of the world’s population in history stuck at home right now (maybe even watching their children while trying to work, or not being able to work at all), that simultaneously means that typical methods of marketing, sales, and communication are disrupted. It also means that more people are concurrently online looking for news, ideas, products, vendors, partners, than ever before.

There has probably never been a more necessary time “Internet Age” for people to be able to find you and contact you via online resources.

Digital strategy and marketing isn’t necessarily easy, but there are some fundamental aspects that you need to have an understanding of so you can make informed decisions. And, it may be the case that the people who usually help you with that are out sick or not reachable.

Please use the resources listed below to help get a handle on your digital presence.
