Websites will be casualties
As companies start to make every effort to save money and retain key staff with Government support during the Corvid Pandemic, websites will often be an early casualty.
Many companies use external web designers or marketing companies to take care of the business website, but this is often seen as a cost saving area. The existing investment in the website is going to have to be enough for now.
With more and more people under Corvid restrictions, the Internet has been a life line to many households. People do more shopping online than every before.
This is also true for customers overseas seeking a UK supplier. If the business website does not work, or nobody is there to answer any questions by phone or email, the customer goes to somebody else.
Furloughed staff working from a home office, can be used to support the company, being able to reply to customer questions and replying to emails. Using skills already in the company can assist the survival of the business.
