How has COVID-19 affected your business?
I run a blog and marketing agency, my income relies on ads and sponsorships from local small businesses. It’s a difficult time for all small businesses and marketing is obviously the first expense to get cut. All that being said, we are still working and focusing on providing our readers with up-to-date information and news about everything that is going on in regards to COVID-19 from a local perspective. We also are trying to continue being a positive resource in the community and help small businesses as much as we can, for free.
