Helping Small Businesses Navigate COVID-19

Megan O'Neill


As COVID-19 continues to spread, life as we know it has drastically changed. Schools have shifted to virtual classrooms, with parents balancing work with homeschooling. Get-togethers with friends and family have gone virtual too, with happy hours and game nights moving to Zoom and Google Hangouts. But the biggest impact we’ve seen is on small businesses.


Here at Animoto, we’ve heard from customers that have had to move their small business operations online, as well as from customers that have had to temporarily shut down. And while it may feel as though business has come to a halt, communicating with your customers is more important than ever.

Whether you’re trying to figure out what to do next, or are already engaging with your community online, we’re here to help you continue to connect in the best way we know how—with video.
