Here are some examples of emails and social media posts my team has recently seen involving small businesses and the coronavirus.

What I like about all these messages is that they convey a sense of personality that’s appropriate to each business.

Tastefully Promoting Indoor Air Quality

In this situation, people will want to increase their air quality in times like this.

Promoting your services in “troubling times” can be extremely distasteful and your business can appear insensitive if you do this incorrectly.

A email I’ve received from Verizon, I believe, hits the right note of concern while highlighting a product they offer.

Here is a screenshot of that message:

This type of message is perfect to let your customers know about the air quality solutions you offer.

End In A Good Note

Watching the news about what’s happening in our country and abroad can give a rise of concern.

As small local business owners, we are the foundation of the American economy. It’s important for us to respond in a good manner to the threat we face. We need to keep our employees and customers safe and healthy.

Communication with customers online is a great way to build solidarity in the country, to humanize your business, and put people at ease.

In my opinion, I see it as an opportunity, and its also just happens to be the right thing to do.
