We are sure you have been “glued” to the television or online trying to find out as much about what COVID-19 is and how it may affect you and your family. As you probably already know, Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that was first identified during an investigation into an outbreak in Wuhan, China. You can learn more about COVID-19 from the CDC on what symptoms to watch for, find out if you’re at a higher risk, as well as, how to prepare your family.
At Pure-Ecommerce, we understand this is not only having an effect on your daily life but your internet business as well. This is why we wanted to share some helpful tips through these trying times.
Stay Safe and Healthy
It is at the utmost importance that you stay safe and healthy so you can be there to not only run your household but your online business too. As part of your everyday prevention, The CDC recommends cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces and objects.
- Cleaning refers to the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. Cleaning does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
- Disinfecting refers to using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
Be sure to check out the CDC website for further explanation and tips on cleaning soft surfaces, laundry, your hands, food, as well as, disposing of trash to help you reduce the risk of contracting the Coronavirus. If you take the appropriate steps you can help to ensure you and your family stay safe and healthy during this time.
Stay Motivated and Organized
When you own a work from home online business at any time it is important to create a daily schedule to help you stay motivated and organized. However, during this time it is even more important! Whether you’re trying to balance home-schooling your children or if you’re adding in caring for others at this time, we encourage you to create a daily and weekly schedule to help keep you on task. You will also want to create a to-do list. This will help you stay organized with what needs to be done daily for your online business and your family too.
We completely understand you may be overwhelmed with cleaning your home and planning meals for your family but it is critical to not let your website go unmanaged. Keep working your internet business daily! Take the time each day to write new content, add social media posts, add new products in order to keep your website looking fresh and in front of your customers.

Watch for Vendor Updates
Your drop ship vendors will want to keep you updated on any changes they may be experiencing during the Coronavirus outbreak. Whether their production or shipping is slowed or altered at this time, they will inform you so watch for emails or social media updates from your vendors. If you have not heard from a vendor reach out to them to see if there are any changes in their business. Taking the time to be informed and prepared will help you better run your online business and serve your customers.
Keep Your Customers Informed
Communication during this time or any is key! You will want to inform your customers of any changes or updates about your internet business. If you’ve been informed by a vendor of back-ordered products, you will need your customers to know by updating this on the product descriptions. If you have been informed by your drop shippers of delayed shipping. Then take the time to add this to the content on their product descriptions on your website. This will help reduce any stress or confusion if a product is not available or may be delayed as people are affected by the Coronavirus.
Share Positive Information & Inspirations
In these uncertain times, coming together is important to establish a feeling of community. Even though we are all social distancing at this time it is important to remember to stand united! It is important to do what you can to spread positive information and inspirations to help others.
