“These are challenging times for many businesses. The changes were necessitated not only by the world’s responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, but also because of the perception that the world may go into a recession because of the economic effects of the pandemic. It is more important now than ever, that these businesses can continue to conduct their businesses as profitably as possible. This can be achieved by having a robust online presence”, he said.
