Below are a few ideas that we have helped people implement on their websites. If you have any questions please ask, we would love to help.
Ideas for COVID-19 Changes to Your Website
1. Add a Button or Banner
Add a COVID-19 banner or button to the top of your site letting your customers and potential customers know where you stand currently and how to get a hold of you.
Additionally, you can point people to request services or make orders. Always remember to add links to services and contact areas to make it easy to get ahold of you and buy services.
Example Button / Banner:
Ideally if you need more text I would link it to a whole page dedicated to updates about your company.
2. Chip in and Help
Add a Form to help people by letting people request products, services or even make donations if you are a nonprofit to support the efforts of your company or to help support your community.
This all depends on the type of business you have. We have helped several nonprofits collect money that is earmarked to helping those impacted by this crisis.
Ways you can help:
Have Toilet paper? Masks? Willing to pick up groceries for the elderly? Have food delivered etc? Not sure how to help? Contact nonprofits in your area to see if they can point you in the right direction.

3. Educate Your Employees or Customers
Adding a learning management system to your website or intranet site is a great way to train your staff, educate customers or even sell training, while people are all at home.
Typically this is know as an LMS or Learning Management System.
Setting up this type of system requires something to teach but we all have something we can teach people!
4. Sell Products?
If you sell products and you don’t have an eCommerce website it may be time to consider one.
Being able to ship products digitally or physically can both boost sales and keep you in the black when your customers are not allowed to visit your storefront.
This will also be beneficial to you after this crisis allowing you to sell on multiple platforms.
