Restaurants, bars, cinemas, and other businesses have been asked to close. People are working from home, spending more time watching television, Netflix, or gaming, but people are also researching products and services. The coronavirus pandemic has not stopped us from being customers.
Customers are searching for their favorite Restaurants online. In fact, the restaurant industry has seen a spike of over 20% in online traffic since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Many traditional dine-in only restaurants have now changed their model to provide a takeaway service. Now is the time for Restaurants to ensure they are able to take advantage of this spike by ensuring their website is set up to accept payments for takeaway and delivery services. It is also important their website has a clear and obvious message that their business model has changed slightly, but they are still open for business.
If your business does not have a strong website and a smart presence online then your business is going to miss the chance to take advantage of this surge in people being online. In many cases, businesses are still operating, therefore having a website that is up to date and that ranks well is the best way to share with your customers that you’re still open for business, or that you now offer an eCommerce or virtual solution during these tough times.
