Social Media in the Time of Social Distancing: HeyGiud's Plan for Coronavirus
Updated: May 15
We've all been getting the news alerts on our smartphones and read the posts on social. Coronavirus is having a major impact on our lives. Social distancing is a concept we've all learned about really quickly and all tried to figure out what songs we can sing in the 20 seconds the CDC recommends we wash our hands. But this is more than just 6' of distance and personal hygiene lessons. Some businesses are shifting employees to working from home and some opting for curbside pickup, online services, or temporary closures. Events are being canceled. Schools closing or going to virtual learning. Guess what? Here's another one!
The beauty of my job is that I can literally work from anywhere, anytime. I choose to work from home, so Coronavirus hasn't impacted my business productivity level. What Coronavirus is impacting is how I conduct meetings. One of my favorite parts of my job is exploring the local coffee shops when meeting with my current clients and any prospective clients. Unfortunately, at this time, social distancing needs to be a necessary part of our lives to help prevent loved ones from getting sick, mine included.
So until further notice, all of my meetings will be held virtually. I've been welcomed to the world of Zoom Meetings this week and it's amazing! I've always loved face-to-face meetings with my clients but this is a great chance to still dig into analytics, social media, and all of the amazing things we get to talk about, only now we get to make our coffee or tea from the comfort of our own home or office while avoiding crowded public places and saving ourselves the travel time. You can even show up in your pajamas to these!
I will also not be scheduling any group training sessions or public speaking events until it is safe for all of us to be together in person.
Due to this change I will be temporarily disabling the ability to schedule meetings from my website so if you want to schedule a one-on-one send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get it on the calendar! I appreciate your understanding.
Sending wishes of good health and lots of hand sanitizer your way!
