3 ways we’re helping businesses navigate COVID-19
March 3, 2020 | By Amber Aldrich
The COVID-19 crisis is creating unprecedented challenges for the local business community, but The Seattle Times – locally and independently owned for more than 123 years – is here to provide support. Here are three ways we can help:
1. Free business updates on seattletimes.com– If you are open and serving the general public, contact us to be included in this article that lists businesses with services available during this “stay home, stay healthy” period. Let us know what you are doing (delivery, livestream services, adjusted hours, etc.), and we’ll help get the word out.
2. Advertiser Lunch and Learn – COVID Crisis Preparing for the Future–With indications that the curve is flattening, now is the time to prepare for the future. Use this time wisely for analysis, strategy, and preparing for creative campaigns and promotions to boost sales when restrictions are lifted. This webinar is a continuation of the Local Marketing Through Crisis webinar and will provide more creative ideas and examples to get business back on track. Register here for the Lunch and Learn taking place on Wednesday, April 29.
3. Crucial news coverage of the new coronavirus outbreak and how it affects you– Our newsroom has covered every aspect of the COVID-19 crisis in our community, including resources for local businesses and how the congressional aid package can help. Our content has reached more people across various platforms to keep our community informed.
Through good times and tough times, we are here to support you. Reach out with any questions you have.
