Here’s 10 things your business should be doing to grow through the CoronaVirus situation:
1: Communicate: Your team, your customers/clients, your network, and stay level-headed.
2: Stay Positive: Panic and Worry never helps. Whenever there is massive change there is opportunity. What can you do right now to add to your business? If you have a slow down, focus on serving the clients/customers you have right now who are still engaging. Do planning for the future. Now is the time to be planning out your new content or marketing.
Turn off the negativity!
3: Know the cycles of change: There’s seasonal cycles. And there’s cycles that change every 7-11 years.
4: Change is here: The only constant is change. So how are you going to use this situation as a springboard for your business. Get out ahead of the change. Theory of Reflexivity.
5: Cut Back a little bit: Cash is king. Don’t spend exorbitant amounts of money. Focus in on spending money where its currently working like marketing your business and selling for lead gen and closing deals. There may be time to slightly post-pone some meetings or events depending on what happens over the next 2-3 weeks.
6: Extend your credit: Get lines of credit if you need it for growth. Rates are going down because of the situation. So having access to capital and credit lines is great.
7: Cut back hours/staff changes/Remote working: Take some vacation time. Allow your employees to remote work if they can depending on your industry.
See what happens in a few weeks. If people need to work more long-term remotely then maybe cut hours for a short time.
8: Plan to work from home and learn from home: Test out your working from home capability if you haven’t already. Do you and your team have what they need to work remotely? Slack, Asana, Trello, Email, Gdrive, Dropbox, Zoom, Google Hangouts.
9: Marketing & Selling is still essential: Don’t stop! Your competition won’t stop. The companies who are successful today are the ones who used the crisis of 2007/2008 to get ahead of the competition.
Now is a perfect time to plan out your sales & branding packages, your content marketing, your paid advertising.
Create new offers and opportunities. For people affected by the virus create some kind of discount, etc.
10: Focus on your current and repeat business customers/clients: Make sure they are getting everything they need through this situation. Create deals for them, communicate with them, etc.
What questions do you have? Is there anything I left out? How are you using this time as a springboard?

My name is Jason Fleagle.

1) My remote work experience
2) My best tip for content marketing or growing your business
Have you seen those people like Gary Vee, John Maxwell, Tony Robbins, and others produce content and wish you could produce similar content? I’ve created my own catalyst content formula that I use to create and promote effective content that’s authentic and driven for technical SEO rankings.
I use the following 5 steps to help companies create a gold mine out of their information, product, or service:
Step 1: Create long-form pillar content (keynote speech, vlog, podcast): You take the time to create high quality large pieces of content that can be used in other pieces of content.
Step 2: Create short-form content (article, meme, image, quote, video, mashup video, remix, etc.): From one large piece of pillar content you can probably get around 10-50 blog posts/guest blog posts or short videos.
Step 3: Distribute the Social content on various social networks: From the micro-content you can create all of the content you need for platforms like: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Medium, Quora, Website, Email List, etc.
Step 4: Watch the response: After you post the content on the different social platforms you want to watch the response you get with your engagement and analyze which pieces are resonating the most with an audience.
Step 5: Create and share the parts of the pillar content that resonate the most: As you test out the content that resonates the most with your audience you can better determine what kinds of content your audience is craving. Focus in on creating what kind of content is resonating.
I actually break this down in more detail in one of my case studies sharing how I created the Secrets of Closing the Sale masterclass with Kevin Harrington from Shark Tank and The Ziglar Corporation: https://medium.com/writers-guild/the-exact-process-i-used-to-co-create-the-secrets-of-closing-the-sale-masterclass-with-kevin-8fdc1bb520db

Why is content marketing not only important but necessary for your business?
You want to build an audience.
Examples: Email newsletter, blog alerts, magazine, podcast, etc.) or the subscriber conversion rate compared with general audience conversion rate.
Great content will do a few things: sign up for a demo, register for an event, request access to a resource center.
#3 Sales support/enablement
Content for testimonials and case studies that show how similar companies have solved their problems.
#4 Customer support and loyalty
Though many think of content marketing as a top-of-the-funnel play, content can work to reinforce the customer’s decision after the sale. How-to information can help make sure the customer gets value from the purchase – and is likely to buy again.
What are some ways you are using content marketing or what are some areas you are looking to do content marketing?

Is your website tracking these 2 important business objectives or conversions?
Macro conversion: a direct sale or a “hard lead” that immediately can be converted to a customer.
Micro conversion: a trigger that indicates a connection of some sort with visitors being likely to lead to a macro conversion in the future.
A further breakdown of Macro Objectives:
1. Sales on an e-commerce site: this is the big no-brainer, but maybe you didn’t know you could track sales amounts, average order value, funnels of what are the most common pages visitors look at before buying.
2. Lead Generation – This is typically getting the visitor’s contact information usually through the submission of a contact / application form, a phone call (yes, you can track these).
A further breakdown of Micro Objectives:
1. Mailing list / newsletter sign up
2. Visiting a key page or pages (like your contact page)
3. Downloading a specific document or file
4. Ad serving
What are some business objectives or conversions you are currently tracking for your website?
