How does your business cope with the pandemic?

This question about the pandemic is very common among business owners. It is just sad that the usual answer to the question (of the title) is on the negative. Worse, the business is already closed to save on the rental expense and the wages of the workers. The spa that offers grooming and massage had been closed by the government. There is not way it can recover, right?

One spa in our village was temporarily converted into a community kitchen. The cooking can be seen in the display window but the food is only for take out or delivery. The owner said that he is earning more with the food business than when it was operating as a spa. Another creative approach is the laundry shop which was closed by the ordinance. But it can operate if the customers will just deliver the clothes and pick it up after sometime. No customer is allowed inside.
Those are just some actual examples that we can learn from. With a little creative touch we can make a recovery for the business that is affected by the pandemic.

I feel for those who are deeply affected by the pandemic in the western world, any country at all. As for my own country, we aren't suffering from covid19 again. Normal activities have resumed full-time, even the lucrative businesses, markets are operating at full demand. Educational sector, viewing centers, tourism, and so on, have resumed normal activities.

Last year, when my home country went into lockdown, I launched an app and website. It took 2-3 months for my app and website to start earning. When my app was able to get 10K installs and over 100 reviews (4.5 star on average), I sold my app and managed to recover my investment (I also made some profits). My website is earning me some money via adsense

Your hard work is paying off gradually don't stop in any way even if the earnings aren't coming boom, the way you really wish. But with consistency you'll establish yourself in the world of digitalization to achieve your dream and earn lots of money like those top programmers and webmasters out there. What app did you create back then, is it a game app or utility type??

You are lucky to have knowledge in technology that you were able to adjust with the livelihood. That is the main problem in our country during the lockdown most of the jobless resorted to informal entrepreneurship which are mostly in selling food stuff. Only very few shifted to the internet to earn money.

Here in my country they reverted back to their old school occupation bring farming. Since indoor farming wasn't restricted, food chain industry was still in operation during the first wave of covid19. That really helped us to cope with the challenges around the dreaded covid19 disease to sustain life.
