In light of recent news regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to take every opportunity to support you in the coming weeks and months.
To help alleviate the blow from loss of revenue, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is offering disaster assistance loans for small businesses in the United States affected by the coronavirus.
For more information, and to learn how to apply for the SBA coronavirus relief loan, visit the Small Business Administration page.
If you were in the wedding industry during 9/11, like I was, then you learned that the small businesses who kept promoting their services and didn't pull back, came out on top, while the others had to close their doors.
That's why you'll notice that many businesses are finding ways to keep their employees working (tele-commuting, video conferencing, etc.) so that when this passes, and it will pass, potential customers will still know their name.
The businesses who show strength during trying times are the ones that people will look at as stable and worthy of their business. Yes, take precaution, but also take your stand and show potential customers that you're strong and stable.
People tend to flock to the beacons of light during times like this. Don't run! Get creative but stay calm. You'll be so happy after this is over that you didn't let 6-8 weeks of bad business make you close up shop.
We care deeply about both your family AND your business that feeds them. We also care about our own employees and their families.
Therefore, our team is busy rolling out additional content for you to use on your blog (helping you keep your expert status), email campaigns to send your leads and social media posts that you can use that encourage engaged couples to keep planning their wedding. If you're a current client of ours, and want these additional articles, free of charge, please email or call us. We're here to help you stay at the top of potential customers minds, and be a beacon of hope during this trying time. Plus, if you have our Level II package, we are lowering you package price by $300 a month for the next three months.
If you're not a client yet, and you need assistance in showing your strength and agility so that you book more weddings, let us know. We'll help you stay at the top of newly engaged couples minds so that when this is over, you will have shown your strength and trust worthiness. That's what will get you the wedding bookings.
Here's to your success always! Jakki Millo
CEO/Director of Business Development
