We keep telling you, Start Your Business NOW!
The Covid Quarantine Is Fueling a Boom in New Online Ventures. Out of work and with more time on their hands, more people are setting up new websites for entrepreneurial endeavors.
Another example of how this can be the best time to start a business, and starting a new business or entrepreneurial effort is likely a much better use of your time than a constant job search or lounging at home collecting unemployment. This also works for bricks and mortar businesses that have limited or no online presence.
From this article from Inc. Magazine: “Until mid-March, Zach Sass was the executive chef at Nashville Underground, a popular tourist spot known for its hot chicken on Music Row in Nashville. Sass, 31, had been a chef for 12 years, working all over the country and putting in 60- to 70-hour weeks. After Covid-19 forced Nashville Underground and other businesses to close, Sass found himself at home with time on his hands.”
“Sass also needed to figure out a way to earn a living, which is how he came to launch his first website to promote the live cooking classes he’s begun teaching via videoconferencing software. He set up the site with GoDaddy, the Scottsdale, Arizona-based domain registry and web-hosting service. “I’m not savvy when it comes to computers and technology,” Sass says. “I was scared not having any skills.” And yet, he got his site online and has begun teaching online classes, helping people to cook using the ingredients they have on hand in their kitchens and asking for donations between $10 and $100. Much of Sass’s inbound traffic comes from LinkedIn, and he recently started using Google Ads to grow the business.”
