1) Don’t “start an agency”? Just help one business *now*?
I'm trying to focus on the health/fitness industry. For now I can't, but you're right, i'm making excuses! Thank you1) Don’t “start an agency”? Just help one business *now*?
2) See above. Why wait till after the pandemic? Is there a business you can help *now*? Are you doing them a disservice by waiting to help them later?
3) Your language? “I’m planning to start”. Why plan to start? Just start?
What's wrong with doing it now?
Are you sure you can’t help a business in the health and fitness industry this week?I'm trying to focus on the health/fitness industry. For now I can't, but you're right, i'm making excuses! Thank you
A lot of people are in financial fear due to business drying up, people social distancing, and employees getting laid off.
Currently, most gyms and fitness stores are closed.Are you sure you can’t help a business in the health and fitness industry this week?
If not, then what other businesses can you help, this week?
I can’t buy dumbbells online anywhere. They’re all out of stock.Currently, most gyms and fitness stores are closed.
off topic : I am totaly confused : I look for dumbbells here in Germany and get 1000s of offers. 3 days delivery. Should I send you some?I can’t buy dumbbells online anywhere. They’re all out of stock.
Yeah, I like that.To go even further, why not try to help out gyms because they're all closed. I bet most of them have no idea how to bring in business right now since the pandemic is disrupting their business model.
If you can tackle that problem and provide value, there will probably be lots of demand for your services.
If anything, now is the time to get into digital marketing for offline businesses because the rules are changing. It can be much easier to differentiate yourself. If you wait until the pandemic is over and people are going to the gyms, you've lost a golden opportunity.
There are SO MANY other cases like this out there that need a helping hand.WE ARE ABOUT TO CLOSE OUR STUDIO. COVID-19 HAS BEEN DEVASTATING TO OUR BUSINESS. ALL CONFERENCES, EVENTS, WEDDINGS, BAR MITZVAHS, SWEET SIXTEENS, ETC HAVE BEEN CANCELLED FOR THE NEXT 2-3 MONTHS. MOST UPSETTING IS THAT 5-6 COMPANIES HAVE REFUSED TO PAY THEIR BILL (THEIR CONFERENCES/EVENTS WERE CANCELLED AFTER RECEIVING THE WORK I DID, BUT HAVE NOT PAID YET). I CANNOT AFFORT TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION. THIS IS CUSTOM WORK AND IS NOT A PRODUCT THET CAN BE RETURNED. THIS HAS FORCED ME INTO DEBT AND WILL NEED TO CLOSE FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE.
Zcott just made you a blueprint for your sales scriptBusinesses closed because of corona ... No one will see them in passing right now so it makes sense to grow their brand online.
Can you help a business retain their base whilst customers stare at social media at home, can you grow their branding, increase engagement, interact with their community?
Think that when corona does go away, businesses who have invested in online marketing will see more customers than those who have not. People will have forgot about the ones who did nothing.
For me, this is the right time to start because business owners or decision-makers are staying home and you have a great chance you can connect with them compared the time when they'll busy back working their business.
