Working through Covid-19

This is a difficult time for all of us living through the coronavirus crisis. We hope all our customers and their families are coping; we do know some who are personally affected by the illness.


If your business has slowed down, this might be a good time to revise your website. Going through the pages, and checking that all the information is correct and up to date, can be a good way to think about the general direction of your project. Should you be planning changes? offering a new service? If you have WordPress, log in and check that the system and plugins are up to date.


Applegreen is still in business and can work very well remotely. We’re here to help if you need us!

Sell online instead of face to face

If you’re not already selling online but would like to do so until the crisis eases, we can arrange the addition of Paypal buttons or full ecommerce to your website, depending on how it is set up.

Do you need to pause your business?

If your work requires you to be out and about or to conduct face-to-face consultations, putting the business on ice may be your best path through the crisis.


You will need to adapt your website, but there are good and bad ways of doing this - as the latest post on Google’s Webmaster Central Blog describes.


For example, do tell your customers what’s happening, do disable the cart functionality if you have ecommerce, and do update your Google My Business entry if you have a physical store front. But don’t disable the whole site, even in an emergency. There are techniques for suspending your website without losing its place in the rankings.

Contact us if you need to be guided through any of these procedures.


I’m signing off with a greeting that was unthinkable even a month ago: stay safe, stay well, and stay in touch.
