Right now, our communities are experiencing an unprecedented set of events that are impressing upon us that we need to work together to help each other achieve a safe and stable existence. My calling continues to be empowering local business owners who have continued obstacles coming their way. In this video, I focus on the bare essentials of re-opening your business in an uncertain time where there are so many doing so simultaneously. Usually when you have a grand opening, it's solely you that get's the spotlight, but this time, there are hundreds doing so. Your customers are being bombarded by marketing communications so it's up to you to do it right, AND they may have already found an alternative during shelter in place, so here are four steps to take in order for your business to stand out.
